LATELY - APRIL

Hi, friends. Can you believe it's already the end of April?
This is an especially exciting month around here because April marks Keynotes' one year anniversary! It's really crazy for me to think that I've officially occupied this little corner of the internet for an entire year — I'm glad you're here and I can't wait to have you along for the journey through this next year!

With that said, let's get right into this month's installment of the "lately" series!

WEARING: If you've been keeping track, then you know that I've been wearing this pair of white denim nonstop lately. I bought this pair on a whim, expecting to return them for one reason or another, because the perfect white denim is so hard to find. Surprisingly, I really like them. They've got a hint of stretch, but not so much that they create unforgiving lines. They're also pretty opaque, which is definitely an important factor! My only qualm is that they have "fake" front pockets, but it's something I'm willing to overlook with this pair.

WATCHING: A few weeks ago, I finished the new season of House of Cards. I've been a religious watcher of the series ever since it came out my sophomore year of college. It's really interesting to watch it now that I live in D.C., because I know exactly where everything takes place. My office building is even shown in the opening credits!


CONSUMING: As a tea lover, I've been a fan of kombucha ever since I tried it a few years ago. I tried a ginger + rosemary homemade recipe the other day and I've been thinking about it ever since. So, if anyone has a good recipe, send it my way.

I've also recently started eating avocado toast for lunch (rather than breakfast). I'll bring two pieces of bread to work and lightly toast them. From there, I add a slice of turkey to each piece, add the mashed avocado and top with black pepper. It's a quick "meal" to throw together in the morning and is just filling enough for lunch!

COVETING: I'd love to get my hands on a bezel-set diamond solitaire necklace! I've had my eye on one for quite some time now, but sadly, I think that may have to wait just a touch longer. Otherwise, I've been loving flowy, laid back dresses for summer. Head on over to Pinterest to check out my favorites here.

ON MY RADAR: May travel! I'll be heading up to New York City early in the month to visit a friend in SoHo. Sex and The City is seriously my favorite show ever, so I'm really excited to #brunch and play Carrie for the weekend. I can't wait! Then, at the end of the month, I'll be making a trip back home for Memorial Day weekend. So far, I'm really making good on my "travel once a month" resolution since moving to D.C. I've also got some trips lined up for June and July, so stay tuned!
