city style

I haven't moved up to NoVa but if I were, Old Town Alexandria is where I would reside. 
Blazer: New York & Company, Shirt: Kohls, Necklace: Forever 21, Belt: Urban Outfitters, Jeans: American Eagle, Boots: Target
I got dressed up in my city best and hit the town with my aunts for a little shopping and lunch. We found an adorable Fair Trade shop and I bought a beautiful piece of jewlrey from Kenya.
We dined at Fish Market Restaurant, a place my aunts and mom used to go to for piano nights when they were my age. Don't you see why I just adore this quaint, little town?

  3. I feel the same way about Old Town! My husband's dream job/duty station is DC, and he would be commuting from there! It just has this charm to it!

    PS: as always, you are perfectly adorable :D

  4. You have such great fashion sense ... I'm a little jealous. I realized a few weeks ago, that it's time for me to dress age appropriate ... and then I realized, oh my god ... I don't know how to shop or accessorize. CRAP!!!

    But, no, seriously ... you look so friggin adorable! Husband and I were thinking about transferring to the 8th & I Barracks in D.C. ... and Alexandria was one of the towns I wanted to live in!
