Blah blah blah I’m sure at this point ya’ll are sick of hearing bloggers talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but I’m coming to you today as a real life working girl okay? In my opinion I feel like the only benefit these “OMG once in a lifetime sales” bring is the opportunity to invest in a wardrobe staple you would never over-wise be able to find on sale. Philip Lim satchel? Tory Burch wallet anyone?
I’m still on the fence if I’ll purchase anything – especially since I just spent a TON in DC and I got school loan payments due. BUT! If I had to pick one thing it would probably be a pair of over the knee boots. They would be a godsend during the winter and on my walks to work! Thinking about a big tote too… How else would I be able to carry around my hoard of snacks?
Is it obvious I wrote this post after 3 glasses of wine… TGIF!
If there’s any place that can compete with the West Village when it comes to charm and character, it’s most definitely Georgetown. I enjoyed Georgetown when we visited last summer despite the sweltering heat (see the post here) but this time I fell in love even more. In just a matter of a few small blocks there’s every store you could want to shop at, great restaurants, cute little cobblestone streets lined with town homes and a gorgeous waterfront.
We went to Georgetown every day we were in D.C. On Friday night we had dinner at Bodega, a Spanish tapas restaurant, and then Saturday I went back with my girlfriends for cupcakes at Baked and Wired (THE BEST) and to rent some kayaks at the waterfront. It was so peaceful being able to get out on the water without the distraction of our phones and just catch up - missed my friends so much! Before we left on Sunday, we had lobster rolls at Luke’s Lobster, more cupcakes from Baked Wired and did a little shopping on M Street. Nick found a new shirt at Brooks Brothers but I was good and just window shopped (though I fell in love with these flats in Kate Spade).
Ah it really was such a great weekend – already planning my next visit!
