Crystal Wynwood Mural | Arlington, VA

I couldn't tell you the last time I was in Crystal City, but today we had a free afternoon and decided to take a drive across the river to check out the Crystal Wynwood Mural that I'd been hearing about. Painted on a vacant building on Crystal Drive between 19th and 20th Streets by No Kings Collective, this funky, graffiti-esque mural is inspired by the Wynwood Walls in Miami.

The mural won't be there forever - evidently the vacant building it lives on is slated to be torn down to make way for new skyscraper - so see it while you can! Sidenote for my DMV fashion blogger friends... this would make a fabulous backdrop for outfit posts!

Also, now through July 20, you can enter to win a $200 gift card to Make Meaning, a new activity center in Bethesda that hosts parties and offers canvas and ceramics painting, candle and soap making, and cookie and cake decorating.

Five Must-Have Black and Gold Tech Accessories


If you're looking to upgrade from the plain old white earbuds that came with your iPhone, you may want to check out these Nasty Gal 'Hear No Evil' earbuds, or these pretty embellished headphones (the result of a recent collaboration between Bauble Bar and Frends; I'm partial to the gold and black, but they also come in rose gold and white).

Did you know that Kate Spade makes adorable polka dot Bluetooth speakers? Who would have thought?

This Nasty Gal gilded charger comes with a universal wire that can breathe life back into your phone, Kindle and iPad all in one little portable, rechargeable package.

And last but not least, this quilted iPhone case with crossbody chain from ASOS is perfect for when you need to take your phone with you but don't want to carry an entire purse (and it's a little reminiscent of Cher's cell phone purse during the gym class scene in Clueless, no?).
