It seems like nautical is always on trend for spring and I’m definitely not complaining.  Here a few things that have been catching my eye and making their way on to my wish list. The scarf is already en route to me and I can’t wait to pair it with one of my Breton striped tees. Who else is ready for spring?!

I literally squealed with excitement when I came across these photos of Tory Burch’s New York home on her blog which is one of my daily reads. The photos are from the March issue of In Style which I will be running to the newsstand to pick up on my way to work tomorrow. Have you ever seen a more chic home? Of course not, I mean it’s Tory Burch’s house! I firmly believe that Tory is a modern day style icon and will definitely be taking notes on this feature.  This will have to suffice as my TB fix since regrettably I had to turn down the invitation to her show and blogger’s lunch during Fashion Week because of my new job (you don’t even know how sad I was. I may have even contemplated changing my start date… crazyy!)

P.S Don’t you think she should write a book on style? I’d pre-order immediately!



Update: Love Read’s shirts? Tell him yourself! Read will personally deliver orders to customers in the DC area and is offering free shipping for customers outside of the DC area with code ‘thepursuitofstyle’. Happy shopping!

I stumbled across Read’s Clothing Project via twitter (@thepursuitstyle if you want to chat) and immediately knew I had to include the brand as part of my Capital Style series. Not only am I completely in love with their classic oxfords, (I have my eye on the navy gingham for the bf), they also have a great mission. Read’s Clothing Project donates 20% of profits to school and educational programs in Africa. It’s a win-win situation, your boyfriend, husband, father, brother, friend will look good and you’ll be doing good by getting them a shirt.

I hope you enjoyed learning about another great brand from the District. There will be many more to follow!



Of all my interior addictions, my weakness for beautiful dinnerware might be one of the worst. We currently have no less than four sets of china in our cabinets which even I admit, might be a little excessive for only two people. The polka dotted cuties above are part of the latest collection to catch my eye. The cheerful designs are from London based brand, Lisa Stickley. If polka dots are your thing, you’ll definitely be a fan! Since I’m barred from purchasing any more dinnerware, I’ve got my eye on the Substantially Generous Jug. I’m picturing it filled with bunches or peonies or hydrangeas. So pretty!


I would never forget to schedule a manicure again if I had this adorable illustration by Samantha Hahn. I love that it’s a little Warhol-esque, don’t you? The furthest to the left in the second row looks like it could be Chanel’s Rive which I blogged about in my blue post. With this beautiful weather we’ve been having in DC, I’m thinking it’s time to transition from my current favorite, Lollipop by Essie, to something a little lighter. No sure if I’m ready for Rive yet though. What are you wearing these days?
