Last week, fashion bloggers partied at KABIN in Dupont, creating a scene that was ripe with well-dressed girls for our spotted in style series. The event was hosted by D.C.-area bloggers behind of Fashionably Broke and Ashley In DC. Though there were a lot of great outfits, it was blogger Maria Jose Abad who was wearing the best Washington work-to-happy hour look.

Abad’s blog is, which not only features more outfits perfect for busy Washingtoniennes, but her descriptions on each post are done in three languages: English, German, and Spanish.

Abad’s look at the party consisted of a ZARA dress (worn as a top) covered with a quilted gray skirt from H&M. She matches a subtle cheetah print in her ASOS shoes and J.Crew belt, which is the perfect punch of pattern to lift her outfit from safe to chic.

The guests at her “arm party” are a a Coach watch with Stella & Dot and Bauble Bar bracelets. A L.A.M.B. bag hangs off her other arm, and she reps D.C. jeweler Sophie Blake in her pyramid ring. In a room full of well-dressed fashion bloggers that ranged from outlandish to trendy to dated, Abad was the one who stuck out as the most polished in the crowd.

Come back every Thursday for more Washingtonians spotted in style around town.
