Touring the Capitol

Tory Burch Pink Espadrilles What a whirlwind weekend we just had in Washington DC! We arrived Friday afternoon and spent our first few hours exploring the National Mall and the area around the Capitol building before meeting our friends for dinner. I’d never seen the Capitol up close before – it really is stunning and HUGE. We definitely got a bit of a workout walking all the way around it! As you can see from my Instagram pictures on Friday we were blessed with really stunning weather – sunny but not too hot. Just how I like it! I have to admit, not a lot of thought or organization went into my outfit planning for this trip. Last week was crazy busy so when it came time to pack I literally just threw stuff in my suitcase. I’m happy though that I had enough sense to pack a few cotton dresses, my favorite denim vest for layering and a pair of comfy espadrilles. As I mentioned we did a lot of walking so flats were a must! More to come from the rest of our getaway later in the week – I didn’t want to leave! 🙁 Capitol Building Washington DC

Must say I was impressed with myself for taking this stellar Instagram ^^

    Lately, I’ve been just throwing stuff into suitcases for trips, too. (I just can’t be bothered!) But I certainly don’t look as cute as you do! Hope you and Nick had a blast 🙂
