Nothing Like Home

I've lived in Maryland basically all my life, even though I love traveling and exploring new places, home is really where the heart is.

Blazer: c/o Downtown Silver Spring / Skirt: Thrifted / Clutch: Thrifted / Shoes: c/o Downtown Silver Spring

I'm so excited to be partnering with Downtown Silver Spring to showcase some of my favorite places in Silver Spring. Some of my most treasured memories are from growing up here. What I love most about this area is it's diversity. I was fortunate to grow up with people from different nationalities, which has definitely shaped and molded the person I am today.

It's crazy thinking about my view of this city as a kid versus now as an adult. Downtown Silver Spring has definitely undergone an amazing transformation. From summer farmers markets, live concerts, great dining, even winter ice skating. There's something here for everyone to enjoy.

Let's not forget shopping, because us girls love to shop!! My look was put together thanks to the shops at DSS. In typical me fashion, I had to throw in a little thrifted goodness. I'm wearing a white blazer from New York & Company, part of their Eva Mendes collaboration, which I got on sale! My sandals are BCBG Paris via DSW and I'm wearing thrifted lingerie as a skirt. My clutch is also thrifted. This look came together so perfectly...I felt very city chic. I love putting together looks, I honestly could do it all day.

I decided to shoot at the terrace in DSS! I love the architecture of this space. It's the perfect place to go during the week to work or get some fresh air. If you're like me, you could spend hours just people watching. On weekends, most likely they've transformed the space into something interesting and fun. I had a great time shooting there. Can't wait to show you guys a few more places in my hood haha.

Also, my niece took these awesome is she?!?! I'll tell you, she's pretty freakin awesome xoxo
