Black & Grey

Dress: Anthropologie | Cardigan | Booties: Via Spiga, similar

It's officially freezing in D.C.  I wasn't ready for this weekend's temperatures, and I was way too cold when I took these pictures on Sunday in Old Town. I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is on Thursday {How'd that happen?}  One of my very favorite holidays, I  can't wait to make my pumpkin pie.  Since it's the busiest time of year for me at work, I decided not to go home & made reservations {this is a first, and I'm freaking out about it!}  I am excited to spend the holiday with my sister & I'm so thankful that she's here with me.  I hope you have a great Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Pullover: Anthropologie | Skirt: Anthropologie | Heels: Steve Madden

It's already Wednesday…I had this past weekend off {which was amazing} but I didn't get a single thing accomplished; this is beginning to be a sad trend here for me.  I got to check out Union Market, Eastern Market, and went to a Food event, EmporiYUM  on Saturday which was very cool.  On Sunday, I went to church and brunch with my sister, and then we went to the National Mall to walk around.  I always love going to the monuments, and I have so much admiration and respect for everyone who has served and is serving in the military to keep us safe.  I'm heartbroken by recent events in the world, but I'm praying God gives our leaders wisdom and for everyone in Paris.

Fall Neutrals

Top: Target, similar | Jeans: AG Tomboy, darker wash | Hat: Anthropologie Heels: Kate Spade, similar |  

Happy Wednesday.   There never seems to be enough time to do all of the things that I want to do.  I've been so busy at work getting ready for Christmas business & trying to get my apartment together & exploring D.C. before cold weather like I've never experienced before is here.  I don't have cable or internet yet so in my free time, I've started jotting down the crazy things that happen to me here so that I won't forget them, and believe me there are so many.  Like the other night, I met the sweetest Uber driver in the world because I didn't want to drive in the city late at night.  I had to cancel Uber 4 times before I got a lady driver {I'm so ridiculous}, but we became besties on the way.  Last weekend, I went to my first black tie event downtown and had an amazing time, any excuse to get dressed up is a fun night for me.  & I finally have barstools!  Unfortunately, they're a little too tall for my bar, so depending on the height of my guest, they may have to hunch over to have dinner, oh well.  This is such a basic neutral outfit that I wore to brunch one day last week.  I LOVE these jeans; I  sized up in them so that they'd be even more of a boyfriend fit, and they're so comfortable to wear for a change.  Enjoy your week!
