A Weekend in Washington D.C.

As I was organizing photos & cleaning up my laptop, I stumbled on these photos from our trip to DC in November.  Before my lengthy break, I mentioned this trip and that I wanted to share a packing post with you.  I decided to combine some packing photos with snaps from our time in the city.  

Our time in DC was one of my favorite trips I've taken in a long time.  This surprised me because I'm not a history buff or someone who follows political matters closely.   I do, however, have a profound respect for our soldiers (past & present), law enforcement, and all the heroes who put their lives on the line for the good of others on a daily basis.  I absolutely loved being in a place where most people seemed so full of respect for each other and for our country.  AMEN.

If you haven't had a chance to visit, I highly recommend it.  For those of you who live in DC or near, your city is truly amazing!

  1. It looks like you had such a wonderful weekend in DC! I love that outfit looking super chic!

  2. Love your blazer + jeans look! So perfect for DC <3


  3. I've been to D.C. twice, once in an 8th grade school trip, in which we visited all the historic sites, such as the Lincoln Monument and another time for a conference in college. It truly is a wonderful and historic city for our nation. As for your outfit, I love the look of the striped top worn with the blazer and sneakers, it creates the perfect balance of casual taken up a notch. I also adore your leather duffle bag! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, my beautiful friend!

  5. I would love to visit Washington one day! I'm not much of a history/political buff either, but I totally relate to loving the troops and I know I would love the experience. That J Crew blazer is so amazingly good! I need that in my life ASAP. Hope you had a great weekend Gina!
