Paris Nights and New York Mornings

Flirty and Feminine in pleated champagne skirt on Que Sera Sahra
It’s been oddly chilly lately; temps are almost sweater necessitating, even though it’s mid-july. I’m dreaming of Paris Nights and New York Mornings….and Fashion Weeks’ just around the corner. I’m craving summer feeling but also warmth, so a cropped knit with a perfect pleated skirt is the outfit option of choice. There’s something “Carrie Bradshaw” esque about this look; it’s cosmopolitan, and not like the drink, and the “cigarette burned” sweater adds the right amount of downtown edge to the flirty and feminine pleats. Topped off with kitschy sunglasses and I’m ready to brave the city for a day of meetings and errands. This is the first set in a “wear two ways” series, so be sure to check back to see what item I spin in an opposite style!

I Know You Feel Like You’ve Fallen Behind

but you’ve been right by my side.
I bet you think you’re doing a favor.
I bet you think you’re my lifesaver.

Dapper guy style on Que Sera Sahra

Getting Z to pose for pictures isn’t always the easiest task, and I might be biased, but damn the boy looks good. After a day of illness for us both (when there’s a drink called a “peruvian bear fucker” you should probably say no when it’s offered over and over again for free), Z finally decided to get dressed dapperly to go out to meet his friend. He pulled out all the stops; summery gingham shirt, silk tie, suspenders, and a full suit…all flawlessly matching. It’s great to date another sartorial soul, and wonderful when you get to witness him procure some perfect pairings.

Monday Morning Inspiration

Alrighty, guys. Take a couple minutes to gawk at the puppy dog eyes. Now, let’s read the quote. “Someone is looking up to you. Don’t let that person down.” I chose this image this week because you truly never know who is looking up to you, judging what you do and learning from you. Monkey see as monkey does, and you never know who you’re affecting with your actions. A pet, a child, a stranger on the street, a peer in class or work… Be sure that you’re always putting on your best, and are aware and conscientious of your actions.

You and I are The Lucky Ones This Time

Every now and then the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones?
Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind

A double style post! I made Z get dressed up to match me in a coastal and chambray look. These are pretty much the styles we’ll be wearing when we head out on vacation next week, but swapping my heels for sandals. Our photographer came to the shoot with a vision, and while I was hoping to shoot by the Georgetown Waterfront his intuition proved the right way to go; these shots are glamorous if I do say so myself; straight out of a French romance movie. I guess the natural chemistry helps :P

Girl Crush: Ann Marie Hoang

I haven’t done a girl crush style post in awhile; maybe because I’ve been so focused on myself and my life that I haven’t been feeling too inspired by other fashionistas around me.  DC may also be to blame in that respect. So where do I get my best inspiration? Well, since I’m always on the go, these days it’s InstaGram. One standout grammer is a lady I’ve been following for a couple of years, and damn the girl kills it. I’m talking about Ann Marie Hoang, stylist and fashion mastermind behind @Mstr_of_disguise, or more appropriately, the master of converging bold urban styles with glamorous classics, with an ever-so-subtle bohemian vibe.
