TGIT! I’ve been looking forward to today all week… Why? Because this evening I board a plane to Washington D.C. with one of my best friends, Julie! A few of our friends (Kendall, Bailey and Hope) are working there this summer, so Julie and I decided we couldn’t pass up on a trip to visit them in such an amazing city. That is the one upside to my friends moving all across the US after graduation… I get the best excuses to travel! :)
It’s a short trip since we’ll be returning on Monday, so I’m trying to pack a super strategic bag. (Speaking of, how cute is this Barrington bag?! You can customize the pattern and your initials!) The best way to do this, in my opinion, is to bring along the easiest mix-and-match pieces you own.
For example, taking a cross body that works both site-seeing during the day in sandals, and then also out at night in wedges gets a lot of wear out of a few pieces. A pair of nicer shorts is a must, since I’ll be walking outside a ton and won’t want to be in jeans. Pairing a couple different colors of J.Crew chinos with this easy white top makes for a cute, lightweight wear-all-day outfit! Finally, a light summer dress (like this gorgeous blush number) that you can wear from day to night is a must. Then bring along a few pieces of jewelry that go with every outfit!
Also, I’m giddy about these sunglasses I just got yesterday! After seeing them on Lucy Hale here, I had to splurge. They arrive today, so I’ll be sure to debut them on Snapchat! (My account is @lonestarsnaps – I’d love for you to follow along!)
If you have any expertise on D.C.(we’ll be staying in Georgetown) and have recommendations on places to see, eat, shop, etc. please leave them in the comments! I haven’t been to D.C. since 8th grade, so I can use all of the suggestions I can get.
Have the BEST Thursday, friends!
Love from Texas,
