Capitol Hill | Wool Blazer + Preppy Skirt

Hello everyone! What can I say? DC’s winter has been really odd these days. It was freezing cold the week before and then the day before and day of shoot, it was in the 50’s & 60’s. Needless to say, I did not have to freeze in the outfits that I brought to shoot for the day. It was a great day.

I wanted to bring you to iconic Capitol Hill neighborhood where I love to bring my couples there to shoot their engagement session. I realized that I never did an outfit shoot there before so here we are. Feeling comfy in my skirt with OTK boots and a wool blazer–essential items to keep you looking stylish and still warm. Also adding in a fun ruffled sleeve top makes the outfit extra fun to wear.

I took a little trip up to NYC to visit a dear friend and of course didn’t realize that a snowstorm was heading that way too. It was definitely a beautiful sight to see albeit too cold to really do much of any sightseeing except for eating and lots of eating we did.

To help combat the wintry cold, I needed my trusty long coat and added warmth with a faux fur stole. The funny thing happened during the shoot–there was an animal rights rally right outside a very popular winter coat store. One of them decided to voice his disapproval at my stole without realizing that it was faux fur. I applaud them for taking their stand and I try when I can to take the humane stand such as being a pescetarian and always opt for faux fur. One battle at a time, right?
