Millennials do a lot of stupid crap. I would know- I am one. Being a blogger AND a millennial I’m probably extra annoying. I like documenting what I’m doing and what I love and thinking that people will actually care about it. While I don’t use the word influencer to describe myself and would never stand on a chair at a restaurant to ‘gram my food (I have VERY strong opinions on this) I’m just as guilty as the next kiddo born between 1982-2004 of being self-involved.

But we’re not all bad. We grew up with technology- as in it grew with us- and we keep finding fascinating new ways to use it. We want to be better and make the world better. While Snapchat certainly isn’t going to solve any world issues, our involvement in social media means we can share ideas at the speed of thought. That’s pretty cool, if you ask me. And being a generation who grew up hearing we’re special and can do anything we put our mind to- of course we would have our own freakin’ color that is ridiculously hard to describe.

I actually had to Google Millenial Pink to figure out how to actually tell you about it:

It’s sort of a grapefruit shade of apricotty salmon.The Gardian

 In general, Millennial Pink is a soft pink with some gray tones to add subtlety and sophistication, and a slight hint of peach, making it a warmer and rosier pink and less a magenta-pink.houzz

 The answer, I think, is that millennial pink isn’t so much a color as it is an idea — hence the great difficulty in pinning it down to a single shade. Millennial pink, whether pale or desaturated or salmon-y, is a kind of non-pink pink, an aesthetic distillation of the ideals of contemporary feminism: unabashedly female, but removed from the constraining associations of the past. It is, in a lot of ways, defined more by what it isn’t than what it is: not Barbie. Not bubble gum. Not princessy.Apartment Therapy

 I use it a little interchangeably with blush and rose gold myself.

As I’m writing this post, within eyeshot (I wasn’t sure if that’s a word but spellcheck is not rejecting it), I am wearing a millennial pink sweater, my phone case is partially millennial pink, and my wristlet with work FOB and important cards is glitter on one side and millennial pink on the other. I know what I like. Also, creepy, I just opened Facebook on my phone and the first ad that pops up is for this bag set from Away only the ad didn’t call it blush. The ad called it millennial pink.

Anyway, I found a millennial pink list on Amazon and wanted to create my own. What do you think of this color?

There’s a little nip in the air- actually, it may not even be a nip it’s just not HAWT. This means that my least favorite time of the year is winding down. I had a pumpkin spice bagel yesterday. Fall is coming. But it’s not quite here yet.

Last night, Bubbles & Bloggers had their August meet up at the Embassy Row Hotel with special guests from  StyleMeBar. We try to pick out a theme for our events, and this month is was “come wearing your favorite summer outfit.” Kind of perfect for the last B&B bash of the summer.

My outfit was one that has been on repeat since June. The dress, which I also have in pink, is a style I wasn’t sure would work on me but I LOVE. I can’t do off the shoulder, but a cold shoulder has been my sassy go-to way to wear the trend. I just have to pop on a great Stella & Dot necklace and the softest loafers (an excellent TJ Maxx find) and I have an outfit in 3 easy steps. I’ve also been carrying around this sweet bag from The Kate Spade at Clarksburg Premium Outlets. You might have noticed it in my engagement pictures– but it makes for a great tote while I’m lugging my life around DC.

I find that I really love a statement necklace to jazz up pretty much any outfit that I wear. Since this dress is solid, I usually grab my York Necklace to add some color and texture to it. And it is absolutely zero secret that I adore Stella & Dot. I still need to spend my reward bucks from the online style session I hosted, but I’m glad I waited becauuuuuse Stella & Dot is offering 25% OFF sale items, which means you can save up to 50% on your favorite pieces! This sale is on now and will expire on Wednesday, 9/6.

A couple weeks ago, Kendall + I had a serious discussion about adventuring. With his work schedule,  it’s harder to plan weekend romps and day trips, so we decided we need to at least explore this great city that we live in more. My old roommate was having a birthday get together, so we decided to take the morning for us and just walked around the DuPont/ Logan Circle area.We grabbed sushi at one of the few places that is open between 2 and 5, and Kendall asked if he could take some pictures for my blog since he’s noticed that I haven’t been doing many outfit posts. (He’s such a great insta-husband-to-be.)

So, I actually got this top thinking it was a dress. I put it on, and Kendall was visibly confused. I stuck my white jeans on under it, and it definitely looked better. This is one of those outfits I think my mom will hate- it features skulls, ripped jeans, and a cold shoulder. But I think it’s fun! It makes for a great weekend outfit especially if I’m stuffing my tum full of sushi, cupcakes, and drinkies from Orange Anchor, like I did that day.

I’m so into the western skull motif kind of out of nowhere- see my other western-inspired picks below my outfit details!

While Kendall + I absolutely adore our Glover Park apartment (aka Pride Rock), we often talk about what it’ll be like to have our own home. We’ve done a pretty good job of compromising on decor here- our bedroom is grey, blue, and black; living room is navy, grey, and orange- nothing too girly in either space- but I think we would each love a space that is purely our individual style. I grew up with pink, pink, pink everything, and left that with my college dorm room opting for combos of the colors above instead at my room at my parents’ house and my first apartment.

However, I’m kinda digging the idea of a perfect pink sugary office space for me to expand on my girl boss dreams. Right now my “office” is my spot on the couch, and I’m happy with that for the time being, but a girl can daydream. There will be pink. There will be gold. There will be rose gold. Light, airy, feminine, maybe with a hint of western/ Native American motif.  If you had a space that you could decorate, just for you, what would it look like?

Last weekend, Bubbles & Bloggers had our July meetup- a shopping tour with Shop The City (more on that in a later post) that ended with the last Whistle & Wild popup before founder Amanda scoots down to Texas in a move that has been a long time coming. While I’m sad to see my friend go, I am SO excited for her journey. You may remember this, but Sarah and I modeled her clothes to help launch Whistle & Wild back late last summer, and the following of Amanda’s online boutique has grown exponentially and nation-wide. There is no question that Amanda is one bad boss and she’ll do great things!

This popup had a little somethin’somethin’ extra though! Marisa was there to help style summer Whistle & Wild pieces for fall. I was so inspired that I wanted to share with my readers some of the great ideas Marisa gave to help transition their own wardrobes. The best part is that I found the pieces I was missing at the #NSale and can share those with you too! These are just a couple of pieces we looked at to move from summer into fall. Make sure you check out everything Whistle & Wild has to offer!


Although the booties that Marisa showed us with this outfit had a little more of a heel, I love love love the perforated look on this Tom’s booties. Put those toes away once the temps drop, ad some sleeves to the slip dress with soft cotton underneath, and add burgundy to the blush to make a great fall outfit!

“Gingham is summer through and through.” This is a gingham rule that I’ve already talked about breaking myself. While Marisa said that leather is still a bit much for early fall, olive utility/ military style jackets are universally flattering. Add a riding boot with a low heel for just a little bit of height. I actually got these exact boots for myself after hearing how long my legs looked with just a bit of heel. At the risk of looking too matchy matchy, I kind of love it with the blue bag too! And I think the boots make it a day or night outfit.
