Washington Redskins Walk the Runway for a Great Cause

Redskins3

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Redskins Runway Show at Bloomingdale’s in Tysons Corner, VA. The show’s purpose was to raise funds for the Redskins Charitable Foundation, which goes to youth programs throughout the region. The players and their wives walked down the runway showing popular fall trends available at Bloomingdale’s. Here are a few highlights from our night!

I really believe the good will of this Fashion Show led the way for an amazing Redskins win on Sunday, so cheers to Kiersten, Tanya, the WOW Wives, the players and all those who took part.

A big thank you to Vicki Griffith for inviting me to the show.

What’s black and red and animal-over?

Did you like my blog post title? I came up with it all by myself! Ladies, sometimes you just need a pair of ridiculously tall, ridiculously loud shoes. These are mine. I bought them off Nastygal and they always make me wanna wear some black and red.

Also, I’m not over liquid leggings and I’ve had these for years!  Liquid leggings can be a bit unforgiving, but you can always pair them with an over-sized sweater, cardigan or long button up shirt for some coverage! I’m glad to say that none of these items were new purchases, haha! Just a closet shuffle and bam! A new outfit post :).

Love,

Ana B

Outfit Details:

Boots: Old (Cute and On Sale/SEXY!/A leopard sneaker! LOVE!)

Minimal Eyes + Red Lips

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend! I have been living in this faux fur that I got on super sale at the new TopShop in Springfield Town Center. I probably wear it too often, but it’s very warm and easily makes any outfit more interesting.

Also on repeat? Minimal eye makeup with a pop of color on the lips! I would really love to wear bold lips more often, but it’s a tricky thing with having three boys. They always find a way to smear my makeup :/. Between you and me, it’s taken me a long time to get good at applying a bold lip. Practice makes perfect though, so whenever I’ve wanted to learn a new makeup trick, I’ll repeat it very often (though it looks crazy!) for a few weeks until a get it right.

Have a blessed week!

Love, Ana B

Falling for Fall <3

We’re in the swing of November and I am feeling pretty happy about it. I love to see the leaves changing colors, the air is crisp and cool outside, and the holidays are just around the corner, which means family and food! Dressing for fall is so fun too! Deep bold colors and layering is back in action and options are plenty.

I love to dress for comfort and style, and this blazer is a perfect mix of both. I also love a pair of colored pants. It’s a great way to break the monotony of blue jeans and these were a great (and inexpensive) find at Forever 21. Gotta love Forever :).

Happy Monday! <3

Love,

You see this “cool mom?” ^^^  I don’t really know her. She lives only in my blog. Lol. But seriously. It was a rough weekend with EVERYONE in my family of five being sick. I will spare you all the gory details, but there was none of this cool blogger situation going on! Susannah and I took these a few weeks ago (prior to getting my fall ombre). I didn’t get to enjoy the beautiful warm weather we had this weekend, but I hope it’s here to stay a LOT longer!Ana B web-15 Ana B web-16 Ana B web-17 Ana B web-18 Ana B web-19Ana B web-21 Ana B web-22

I bought these pants at Garage a while ago and I don’t think they’re available anymore. But if you see them there or similar ones anywhere. Buy them. Because they feel like pajamas, and they hide spills or stains from sticky toddlers, and they have a stretchy waistband, AND they make you look cute. Best. Pants. Ever. I think they may be considered trousers, but I can’t be sure.

Love,

Ana B
