La Vie en Rose

 Green as far as the eye can see, charmingly sprawling rose bushes curling around fences in full bloom and the sound of the cicadas singing as the day winds to an end: there truly is no place like home! 

After a long flight, recovery from jetlag and beginning to tackle the hurricane debris that is my suitcases I was able to slip outside to show off my latest obsession. This delightfully chic woven tote is the perfect summer bag, from wandering through gardens to picnicking on the beach. It's even large enough to fit my positively ancient MacBook Pro and thus guaranteed itself a spot on my internship wardrobe rota. All of Kayu's bags are hand made from natural materials, and their ethical artisan approach makes the brand one I can feel proud investing in! For a romantic and boho look to match the Sail Tote I paired my favorite blue jeans with a cream lace tank and accessorized with my favorite everyday jewelry: Olivia Burton Watch, Blue Lemon Paris ring and Les Néréides necklace. Returning to Washington D.C always ends up being a trip down memory lane. Every storefront, river view and red brick home transports me to the years I grew up here. As a Navy brat it was the first city I really had time to settle down and create roots of my own in. For that I think there will always be a special fondness in my heart for the "City of Magnificent Intentions".
