The District

hat: vintage
tee: h&m
necklace: bcbg maxazria
skirt: forever 21
sandals: dsw


Aloha guys,
it's D coming at you from D.C! 
Vacationing in the District has been the highlight of my summer. I mean, I've done a lot of cool stuff  but, nothing compares to the Nation's Capital. This city is so alive and the more time I spend here, the more information I learn. So, I guess you could call this post

Diop's Guide to Diop's City!

yeah, I hope you knew that the D and C in D.C. stood for that ;) 

1. The District is maaaaaad humid. Even if it's -1 degrees, you could go from being BeyoncĂ© to a member of the Jackson 5.

2. Everyone in D.C. has a dog, so make sure you bring your furry friend along for the ride!!

3. The houses are so freakin colorful. If you wanna see properties way cooler than your vintage Barbie Dream Home definitely visit Gerogetown.

4. If you ever have a taste for a milkshake that brings all the boys to the yard make sure you hit up Ted's Bulletin and order a huge Oreo Milkshake, 'cause you're with it girl!

5. Ante up a couple of bucks, so you can rent a bike. Trust me, your sandals are way too cute to do all that walking in.

6. If you plan on going to the National Mall be equipped with your camera and handy dandy selfie stick because nothing's cooler than a pic with the prez.

7. I'm pretty sure D.C. has more restaurants than actual people, so unleash your inner fat kid. Then work it all off in the morning, of course!!

8. There is always something to do in D.C. so don't be shy. Talk to strangers. 

9. If you wanna go bankrupt, there's no better way to go broke than in the Nation's Capital. Do some retail therapy at D.C.'s Shopping District and you'll feel less guilty.

10.  Make sure you tell me! If you ever hit up Washington D.C. make sure you share  your experience with me. I absolutely adore the city and I would love to find new places to explore!

farewell for now my fashion forward friends

The Hills

studs: target
tee: h&m
shorts: old navy
sandals: dsw

Aloha guys,
Welcome to a land that's painted with rich color and bounties of merriment. Welcome to a world where the rays of the sun caress your skin. Welcome to my world!! 

This summer has been an absolute dream. I've been doing yoga poses in the grass, racing up hills, and most importantly basking in the sun. It doesn't get better than this, I swear! My appreciation for nature has been in full bloom, I mean just checkout my Instagram. So I let Mother Nature take over this shoot.

I stumbled across a park that's covered with miles of grass and a sky that stretches on for lifetimes. When I took a seat a heavenly scene overwhelmed my eyes and I knew right then that I had to take some pictures. So I started dancing in the luscious grass and you could say magic happened. 

I put on my periwinkle v-neck and my tropical, high rise shorts. I was dressed pretty relaxed, but I like how my shorts make it look like I put in some effort. This outfit is easy and it really complimented that super awesome mural. Today was an amazing day. I hope the rest of my summer plays out like this. 

Farewell for now my fashion forward friends
