So I'm going to be honest with you guys, I had no idea that anyone would be into my sweater dress-OTK boot combo. I honestly get really nervous about wearing skirts + dresses, and hardly ever do it — I'm nervous I'm going to accidentally flash someone! Honestly, though.

BUT, I love this sweater, and when you're short and the oversized sweater is long, you work it. Plus, sweaters and OTK boots are literally everywhere right now, and are so perfect for running around the city on the weekends, or grabbing coffee with friends.

A lot of you asked about my sweater and where I got it. It's originally from Topshop years ago and I bought it three sizes too big because I wanted it as a dress. It's not available from anywhere anymore. BUT, I've scoured the interwebs to find you some of my fave oversized sweater just in time for spring...or the {hopefully} rest of winter...whichever comes first.

p.s. The first one is my favorite and costs less than $50! 

p.p.s. do you {also} absolutely live in oversized sweaters all winter? Let me know in the comments below!

weekend round up {sept. 17, 2016}


Hello, hello, hello and happy weekend! I have had a crazy schedule lately packed with fun events, great people and experiences. For both work and home, the rest of September is going to be a whirlwind. But I sat down this morning with a strong cup of coffee and put together some of what I'm reading, drinking, doing, obsessing over. 

Stuff Mom (really) Never Told You: A podcast dedicated to talking about "the business of being a woman" from How Stuff Works. It's a great listen on the metro and helps you to think about the female in a different way. Plus the two hosts, Cristen and Caroline, are absolutely hilarious. They bring up amazing points on everything from female surfers to the work husband. Every episode is a think piece and every episode leaves me with a new opinion. Sorry for gushing, but no matter who you are, you should definitely give them a listen. 

Oh my god, I'm a blogger too! On Thursay, I was out a little past my bedtime for a lovely event at Illusions of Georgetown, where a bunch of DC bloggers sipped champagne, shopped with Stella & Dot and took endless photos. Plus, I met my new go-to hair angel. 

Which came first: The banana or the flavoring? A hilarious, run-on sentence piece about banana flavoring and how it originated. 

It's like ClassPass, but for your desk lunch. From the founders of everybody's favorite gym motivation comes a new startup called MealPass. Basically, one flat fee for cheap, yummy lunches from your favorite DC digs all week. They're finally launching in DC with a party THIS MONDAY. Join me and sign up to attend here. (hint hint: There may or may not be some fun HONESTLY THOUGH X MEALPASS collaborations coming

...I'm Delilah. Pop Culture Happy Hour did a little interview with (arguably) the most recognizable voice on the radio. Listen to her below or read this great piece on her from Buzzfeed
