After a fabulous weekend full of vintage shopping (so many amazing finds I will blog about later this week), mani/pedis, and biding adieu to football season, I feel refreshed and ready to start the week. But before I begin my week I had to write about my hostess that escorted my girls and I to our table at Marvin‘s for brunch yesterday morning. Quick plug – their cheesy grits are to die for and the mimosas are fantastic!

This girl was effortlessly U Street chic with her long dark hair, blunt bangs, petite stature, and beautiful collection of vintage clothing she was rocking from head to toe. As she walked my gals and I to our table I could not help but notice that everything she was wearing was a different texture yet the whole outfit just worked. I will try to recreate it below…

U Street Chic Hostess
Want to see a couple other outfits I created and see some specifics of the look above? Go to my Polyvore page here.

The vest above does not do her unique, much shorter, feminine vest (note- she wore the vest unbuttoned) justice but the whole ensemble looked like she just walked from her favorite vintage store to work. The maxi skirt, which is a silhouette that you will find everywhere in the newly distributed spring look-books, was whimsical, then the contrast of the heavy braided belt and lastly with a pop of color (her flats) below was absolute perfection. The denim button down, also another spring must have, reminded me I need to find one to add to my closet ASAP.

This girl may never know it but she has become my inspiration for gracefully transitioning my winter wear to spring chic this season when I am out and about these February/March weekends. Thank you chic Marvin’s hostess!
