Forest Accents

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great week! Six years ago I met my love through my best friend and her boyfriend. The four of us have enjoyed many adventures togetherfrom prom in high school, to the fateful Boston trip that established Doug and I as a couple, to a recent vacation to Jamaica. Relationships like these decorate my life with genuine bliss. This week we drove to D.C. to visit Moses (who now lives and works there). Here are some snapshots of my forest green ensemble take at the WWII Memorial: 
Trench: Kenneth Cole
Accessories: Zara
Pants: Zara
Bag: Botkier
Shoes: Steve Madden

I dressed up my black leather trench with fun accessories such as a colorful necklace and gold belt. The Zara necklace, which has accents of green, cobalt and orange, subtly complements my forest green trousers and cognac bag. I chose black pumps to bring together the color story.

WWII Memorial



Our visit was fun but definitely too short to explore Washington's vast offerings. We plan on returning for a longer trip in the spring to see the cherry blossoms, monuments and museums. Hopefully we'll take some pictures together too! What do you think about my outfit? How would you accessorize your black trench? Thanks for reading and talk to you soon :)
