Preppy Chic


The chill is coming, and the window of time to wear shorts is being cut short too soon! I put together this outfit to give fall a little pazaaz, and still show some leg! Preppy Chic in full effect! I just love my new camel coat, and I thought it added a little extra spunk!!

When a prep schooler grows up! (Thanks Holton xoxox)

Big Hats and Culottes

Hi there everyone! I hope you all had an amazing week! Its Midterm season, Ive been trekking away at completing my assignments! I just received my current grades and I am quite pleased. It has definitely been an adjustment to manage my work and life schedule with homework assignments and due dates, but I am definitely pleased with the results thus far. Next week I will catch up on my #LindsaygoestoArtSchool segment and outline everything that Ive been doing and projects Ive completed! Id love to get some feedback!

Culottes have taken runways and closets by storm this season, which is of no surprise to me! The chic combination of shorts and pants provide an intriguing edginess to any outfit! When I first spotted them, I couldn’t help but think, “Hey, those are the gaucho pants I was wearing in 7th grade!” I spotted this pair of Satin Culottes on ASOS, and I just had to have them! In this look, I paired thrum with a lace bralette, a black pump, and my favorite black oversized hat! Im super excited to pair them with a sweater or turtleneck and the temperatures dropped! Culottes can be found at H&M, Top Shop, MissGuided or ASOS, for a reasonable price!

What Im Wearing:

1. Bralette- MissGuided 2. Culottes-ASOS 4. Hat- F21 5. Shoes-NineWest




Fall Neutrals

The camel trend this fall, is definitely one of my favorites…and I wouldn’t even call it a trend, because camel and neutrals have always been relevant for the fall. I combined an oversized top…Actually Im not sure if its a stop or a dress, because I accidentally bought an XL, with a ankle boot and leopard clutch! As the temperatures start to drop, the days of being able to walk out without tights and pants are soon coming to an end!

What Im wearing:

1. Dress/ Shirt- Target 2. Hat- H&M 3. Boots-Altuzarra x Target 4. Clutch-Love Cortnie 


Two Dozen

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday!

Last week I celebrated my 24th birthday, and the 1st blogaversary of 2ndandL. I  enjoyed the weekend with friends and family, filled with laughter and fellowship. This year has been quite an experience. With many ups, and a few downs…some lessons, some laughs, some tears, but more cheers. I can’t even begin to communicate how grateful I am for all of your love and support. The features, the interviews, supporting and sharing my art…and encouraging me in my low moments. I truly appreciate all of you, and I hope I can continue to inspire you. If you need anything, or someone to talk to…Im just an email away! To another year of growth, triumph, and learning! Many thank yous!


On Friday I had dinner at Ruth’s Chris, and went to Averys on H Street, and on Saturday I  had a beautiful family style brunch with my friends and family at Lavagna in Eastern Market.

The food at brunch was amazing, the family style included carbonara pasta, chicken and waffles, eggs and gravy, pancakes, and fresh fruit. After laughs and lunch, I shared my Chanel inspired cupcakes from Art of Suga. The cupcakes were absolutely beautiful, and very me! Later that night I had dinner with my bestie at District Chop House, and then headed to U Street!

It was truly a birthday to remember, and I appreciate everyone who made me smile.

Thank you again for all of the wishes! More to come from 2nd and L!

Layers in Fall

One of the biggest challenges in Fall is staying warm and not getting too overheated. To tackle this obstacle layering is essential! Its usually too warm for a coat at this time of the month, but definitely not warm enough for just long sleeves or a light jacket. I paired a chambray mens shirt with a gray sweatshirt to add a little layering for a cool Fall Sunday!

What Im Wearing:

1. Sweater- Target 2. Chambray Mens Shirt- F21 3. White Jeans- H&M 4. Booties- Target 5. LV Speedy
