Overalls. Love them or hate them, they are making a comeback and I’m personally a huge fan. I vividly remember the Winnie The Pooh dungarees (a British-coined term) I lived in as a young tot and I say with total honesty that if someone recreated them for me I would rock that look like it was 1998. This is certainly a more “grown up” (whatever that means) manifestation, and I tried to keep it fresh and unique by pairing them with a polka dot button down that I adore from UNIQLO. I’ve noticed a lot of people have been pairing overalls with stripes, so if that is more your speed it’s also pretty easy to pull off. There is also the option of no shirt, which I have seen trending, but personally I think that’s a dangerously precarious option. Wikipedia (one of my favorite go-to sources) makes reference to “Shortalls” and “Skirtalls.” I’ve never heard an article of clothing referred to by those terms in my life, but it’s a pretty swell way of being more specific for other overall options. So what say you about the repeat trend- yea or nay?
You may know this about me if you have followed along with my blog, Instagram or Twitter very much (Check it out, SK_Ontherun), I have a slight obsession with cinnamon iced coffee. Be it Dunkin, Starbucks or Caribou, that’s my jam. Here are two fun facts about getting more reasonably priced beverages. I used to only purchase iced cinnamon dolce lattes from Starbucks, until I recently discovered that you can purchase just a plain cinnamon iced coffee and it tastes exactly the same for literally half the price (I’m not sure why I didn’t realize you could get cinnamon dolce syrup in an iced coffee?) So if you love it as much as I, it’s a great money saving go-to. Also, if you love chai tea lattes, (this only works with hot) you can order a misto with a chai tea bag in it, also half the price. I’ll leave you with these glorious tips.

Now that the weather is so nice, I’m making an effort to spend every moment outside. Spending time near the Capitol was a great way to do that, and in between lots of LSAT studying we managed to take photos in some really beautiful locations!

This weekend, one of my good friends and fellow sorority sister alumni came into DC for the first time just to see the cherry blossoms we have to offer. We went down to the Tidal Basin, where they are in full bloom, and they were absolutely gorgeous. I actually had no plans to go there, but I’m so glad she came down because I would have missed one of the most lovely things my new home has to offer. (There were, however, tons of tourists, which was insane and rather overwhelming!) For this look I chose something summery and cheery to celebrate the warmest day of the year thus far, and I was so happy to be in shorts! Originally, I started the day in a pair of sandals I had just purchased (Joe’s) and on my way there the shoes broke. Thus, I popped into H&M and got these cute, extremely cheap tennis shoes. Brief fun history lesson- Did you know the Japanese gifted the DC cherry blossom trees to the United States in 1912? As a history nut, it was very interesting to hear about how this occurred. In recognition of our friendly ties to Japan, the country gifted America with several thousand trees, the first two being planted in the exact same spot I stood by our very own first lady Helen Taft, and the wife of the ambassador involved in the transfer.
