Hey friends! How was your week? Jesse and I are currently in D.C. spending time with his side of the family. We have some time between the next phase of his training so we have the chance to bounce back and forth between our families until he leaves again in March. God’s sure teaching me a lot of patience during this “hurry up and wait” period in our life but we’re making the most of it and moving in the right direction!
We went downtown D.C. at the beginning of the week one day when it was in the 60’s. It was sooo gorgeous out!! We walked down the mall (no not a shopping mall – the National Mall – and yes I thought “shopping” when I first heard my in-laws talk about going to the “mall” 😉 ) and across the street into downtown. This is only my second time downtown, and the first time was years ago, so I really enjoyed walking around seeing all the gorgeous monuments, parks, and buildings again.
I must say that this outfit was perfect for meandering around and sight-seeing. This denim jacket from Tobi is definitely a new fave! I love the wash and the fit, and I know I will be wearing it a ton! I picked up this sleeveless sweater from TJMaxx (I got it for like 8 bucks!) but you can find the same sweater online here. It’s not a color that I usually go for but I love it! My black denim jeans are always a good go-to and I must say with all the walking around we did, these leopard flats were surprisingly comfy! I’ve had these flats for years and thankfully they restock them over and over again! (pssst. right now they are currently on sale!) This little backpack was a great bag to carry around the city, too.
I asked on Instagram for any recommendations to see/do/eat in the D.C. area, so if you have a favorite place or any suggestions, let me know in the comments! Also who’s watching the Super Bowl this weekend? Anyone? If you’re wondering who I’m rooting for let’s just say.. *cough* *cough* anyone but the Patriots. #GoEagles… Oops. Don’t kill me Patriots fans. I’m Steelers all the way which means I have to be anti-Patriots. 😁 Have a fun weekend! Thanks for stopping by today! xo.
