To Bike or Not To Bike?

I’ve been thinking for a while that I’d really love to have a bike. D.C. is pretty spread out and sometimes it feels like it can take forever to walk/take public transportation. Bikes are chic, easy, relatively cheap, and definitely eco-friendly, but do I have what it takes to bike in D.C.?! Riding a bike here would certainly be different than riding it in Pennsylvania! For starters, there are pedestrians. Also, the ever-intimating traffic circle. But is this really enough to keep me from buying a bicycle? I think not!

Plus, I already picked out which one I want. Adorable, no?

Do you have a bike? What is the best part about riding it?

Rain, Rain, Go Away

If you’ve ever lived in DC, or any place like it, you know you’re going to have to deal with the rain. A lot. Especially in the summer. And in any place where streets flood quickly, and a thunderstorm is always just a few minutes away, a girl’s always got to be prepared!

When it comes to rain gear these Hunter boots are my absolute favorite. I love them in green because they work with every season and with almost any outfit. They’re a good combination of classic and cute.


Hunter boots can run a bit pricey though, so my second favorite (and more budget-conscious) choice are these boots by Sperry. (And if you’re looking for something for the winter months check these boots out, they have a fleece lining for extra warmth when it gets cold!)

While you’re at it, why not get a fabulous umbrella. The bubble umbrella can be found online or in stores. Urban Outfitters has one I especially like, but all of them help to prevent the hair frizzies and keep you looking oh-so-chic.

Just because it’s raining, doesn’t mean you can’t shine.
