If you've been in D.C. for much time at all, then you know we're lucky to live in a wildly diverse metropolis — people from all over the world call our fair city home, whether it's just for a short stint with an embassy or a long-term gig with an NGO. It's one of the things we love best about this town, really.
So, we were pretty psyched to meet new-in-town blogger Cheralee Lyle of Lyle Style
— we first spotted her at our launch party back in November, and have been following her stylish escapades ever since. With quirky accessories (she makes amazing flower crowns by hand!) and a covetable closet full of vintage
, Cheralee won us over fully with her lilting South African accent and sweet disposition. The full-time student (and freelance stylist) welcomed us into her adorable Northwest D.C. digs, where we admired her DIY skills and affinity for pre-loved baubles. Click through to see four of her favorite looks
and get the dish from this round-the-world transplant.
