White & Pink on Princess Street

Besides the many boutiques and restaurants, one of the great things about living in Old Town is the rich history behind many of the historic homes and streets. Princess Street is one of the few streets that is still paved with cobblestones, and though not friendly to a stroll in heels, is a popular spot for engagement photos with couples from across the metro area. Ted and I enjoy strolling around the streets of Old Town on the weekends, often stopping for lunch or an ice cream cone. We usually vary our route around town because we always notice a historic plaque or cute town home that we haven’t seen before. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend heading over to this part of town for brunch at Jackson 20 or Virtue Feed & Grain and shopping on a Sunday afternoon. Bishop Boutique, Duchess M, and The Shoe Hive are a few of my favorites!IMG_2246IMG_2239 IMG_2225 IMG_2228 IMG_2229 IMG_2230 IMG_2233 IMG_2235IMG_2236IMG_2283IMG_2280IMG_2289IMG_2303

Sunny Days

I couldn’t be happier that warm weather is here again! Bright colors and florals are de rigueur. I fully embraced spring from head to toe last weekend while running errands and enjoying the start of outdoor dining season. This Ann Taylor dress just begged to be paired with “The Right Bright Lip” (M·A·C Lipstick in “Speed Dial”) trend featured in the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show last weekend. What are your favorite spring fashion trends?

Ann Taylor Spring Picks

I’ve seen Ann Taylor go through ups and downs over the years as a work wardrobe staple, but am drawn to the pretty pastels and on-trend details of the new spring collection. Laser cut details, lace inlays, and gemstone inspired baubles make these pieces a hit in my book. I’m also always looking for great pieces than can transition from work to play since, if i’m honest with myself, I spend most of my time in work clothes so they are the more worthwhile investment for me. Would you sport any of these chic spring styles?
