Our Plus One

As you can guess from the photos below, L decided to bring her little love Mandu out for the shoot thus being our plus one for dinner. We decided to take the shoot right in the heart of Bethesda among all the quaint little shops.


Shirt: Banana Republic
Skirt: Express
Belt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Pour La Victoire
Necklace: Stephen Dweck
Bracelet: Hermes
Bag: Balenciaga


A couple posts back I featured this same shirt from BR, but in gray stripes. I loved the comfortable, soft texture and laid back look of the shirt that I ended up ordering another one in blue. I paid more for it online the 2nd time around (only had my size online) but when I discovered that it was cheaper in stores the sales associate ended up giving me a price adjustment so it ended up being about $14! YESSSS!! This shirt is great because it can convey a classic look either through pairing it with jeans, nice trousers or with a simple khaki skirt such as today's look. Belts can make such a big difference on a simple outfit and after playing around with a skinny belt and a wide belt, I felt that a wide belt completed my outfit much better because it's bold and also helps accentuates the waist a bit more. Outfit complete:)


Dress: Asos
Shoes & Scarf: H&M
Glasses: Tom Ford
Necklace: Forever 21
Ring: Tiffany
Bag: Chanel


I love the bow detail on this dress that flares out into an A-line. This version of the button-down and striped features gives the dress the more casual look, but so light and airy that it's perfect for those no-frill days. Those sandals from H&M makes a second appearance for a better look, but I must say that I'm in LOVE with those shoes. I can literally walk miles in them and surprised at how comfortable they are. Fashionable but yet comfy in shoes - hard to imagine, right?

After our shoot, we decided to head to a restaurant nearby called Mussel Bar and the food there was delish, not to mention, having your mussels served in a variety of savory flavors with a side of yummy fries. The lobster bisque was smooth and very tasteful with big chunks of lobster - definite plus. If you're ever in the area, definitely add it to your must-stop places to try. The weather worked in our favor with Mandu being our plus one, so we opted to sit outside to enjoy our dinner.

Until next time,
