Howdy all!! We’re back! I’ve had a fabulous short break in Washington D.C. doing lots of touristy stuff. We must have been very good this year as Santa left us all tickets on Christmas morning, so after unwrapping the gifts to squeals of excitement, we left for the airport.
It truly was amazing to see the sights in real life that we are so used to seeing on t.v. in the news or in movies. The weather was perfect too – glorious sun – but I was pretty happy I had my Marks & Spencer Per Una Christmas present to wear too – I’ve never had so many compliments about a coat before!
Here’s a quick photo round up of the highlights – for more you can check out my Instagram account.
One of the Elves got sidetracked on the way back to the North Pole…
Fortunately Santa still had time for a hug with Poppy before leaving the hotel.
We headed straight to the White House – along with everyone else! I wore my super comfy and very festive Golden Goose for the occasion. The cashmere beany was absolutely required in the cold and my Husband got to wear his gorgeous Elder Statesman hat that I bought him for our anniversary this year.
The Capital is just amazing.
This view from Lincoln’s Memorial always makes me think of Forrest Gump. The view and the Memorial are stunning and quite awe inspiring.
The MLK memorial was a highlight for the children as they know so much about him.
Although I had a break from outfit photos while away – here is my outfit from the 23rd, when I headed out with the girls from work for our Christmas celebration.
Boots – Stuart Weitzman Highland (my favorite purchase from AW 2013) // Dress – Zara (old)
As much as I love traveling it is always great to get home. Today I am heading out for some retail therapy. I haven’t really looked too much at the sales and the boots I am after probably won’t even be in the sale. I still may treat myself given a) how much I have worn my Highlands and b) I have no need for a NYE outfit as we are staying home with Chinese and Carson Daly. These boots will be the perfect transitional boot from winter to spring – the 5050 in tan nubuck.
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and I am certainly ready to throw myself into 2014! Who has fabulous plans for Tuesday evening?
