CASUAL WEEKEND + PLAYING TOURIST

Vest || Shirt (old, similar) || Leggings ||  Tote || Watch 

The other weekend, my friend was in town visiting. We started out the weekend by heading to Georgetown Piano Bar on Friday night. While we had high hopes, I'm displeased to say the service was well below subpar, making for a relatively mediocre experience. I hate to say it, but I couldn't recommend the place to anyone in good faith. Proceed at your own risk! The night wasn't a total loss, though. We rounded out the evening at a popular bar in the "hip" part of town and had a blast. 

Of course, when out-of-town visitors come to D.C., they're interested in seeing all of the main attractions (i.e. monuments, Smithsonian museums, the White House). When in Rome, do as the Romans, right? My friend and I spent the better part of Saturday playing tourist in the city, visiting the monuments and exploring. 


The weather couldn't have been better, making for a great day to wander around. When we left in the morning, a slight crisp wind was in the air, making it bit chilly. I opted to wear my Patagonia down vest over a linen long sleeve shirt as a precautionary measure. I later stowed the vest in my Longchamp Le Pliage tote as the temperatures rose in the early afternoon. I chose to wear a "sporty" look because I knew we had a long day ahead of us. I'm glad I wore sneakers because we ended up walking over eight miles! Ooft


All in all, both of us had a great weekend. We are going to Chicago in a few months for her "destination" birthday weekend. I haven't been to the windy city in forever, so I'm really looking forward to it. Keep a look out for that post coming in the future!
