DC Cold Weather Style

DC Cold Weather Style

One thing is for certain: DC is freezing cold these days. Whether you are holed up in a roasty-toasty apartment or still trying to make your way back to the District after the holidays, you will most certainly need warm clothing throughout the next few weeks. These clothing options are fashionable, warm, and can be found in local DC boutiques. (Or, if you don't want to venture outside, these boutiques are also online!) 

Resort Wear 2011

Resort Wear 2011

It's hard to think about short sleeves, blouses, and sundresses while there is still snow on the ground, but the latest designer Resort Wear lines are now available. 

Resort Wear was originally marketed to people who were going to spend December and January traveling to warm, tropical climates. Now it is seen as a year-round look that is especially useful to those who live in sunny parts of the United States and abroad. 

As we sit in DC wrapped in layers of clothing and wearing accessories like mittens and faux fur hats, it's nice to take a break and imagine sunshine and mild breezes. 

Here's a look at one of my favorite pieces from the Alice + Olivia Resort line. It's called the Denim Roxanna Bustier Dress and it retails for $297. I love that bright green color on such a classic shape! 

Are you one of the lucky ones that will be traveling somewhere warm in the coming weeks? If so, do tell!

When  Miss DC USA pageant director, Althea Smith asked me to be the last female judge for the Miss DC competition, I was ecstatic and of course said "YES".  I hadn't ever done anything like this before and the experience was a ton of fun.  The most suprising part of the competition was how much love and support the girls gave each other. Even though it was a competition, the sisterhood they belong to makes it more like a family than a contest.
