Due to the slight heat wave in the Washington DC metropolitan area, I decided to peal back the layers and embrace the maxi dress. Its so simple. Effortlessly chic, I believe that I will be embracing the "less is more" look due to my extreme laziness and my dress code restrictions at work. Oh FYI, I am turning the big 25 next week. Due to this huge milestone in my dazed and confused personality, I am teaching myself how to speak Japanese. Hurray! I have been dying to learn how to speak a few more languages and since I am really in to the Japanese culture and lifestyle, I thought I would immerse myself in the language.
