I spent the weekend in D.C. where the weather was truly amazing. I got to see some fantastic sights: The White House, Capitol Hill and the Lincoln Memorial. Most of all I enjoyed being away from Manhattan for a couple of days, for a change of scene and to relax. Since the weather was so humid and the sun was shining brightly, packing for the trip included variations on a theme of shorts and vest tops with just my Yigal Azrouel dress for the evening.
My hotel had a cute outdoor pool which provides the backdrop for this new outfit post. I’m wearing my nude lace shorts and silk top – both from H&M – with Nine West heels and I’m carrying my neon yellow clutch from Taylor of CurlyInTheCity. I wore this outfit (ok so I did change my shoes but in my defence I did a LOT of walking around D.C.!) on Sunday for the Air and Space museum, ambling around the Capital Building and a yummy brunch at Oyamel. I love this outfit because of the delicate summer colours and the ruffles on the front of the vest. London weather would rarely give me the opportunity to wear such an outfit without getting goosebumps, so it was great to feel the sun on my skin in D.C.
I hope you had a great weekend too, Blog Reader!
