There's nothing better than spending a lunch hour conversing with a dear friend, escaping the world for an hour to just connect and enjoy some great food. And that's exactly what I did for my birthday this year!
I met up with one of my best gal pals, Erin, for a lunch at my favorite little cafe, Malmaison. This sweet little spot in Georgetown is one of my favorite hidden gems - it sits back away from the hustle and bustle of M Street., at the end of Water Street. The food is so tasty and the atmosphere reminds me of something straight of of Elle Decor. (See a few photos of Malmaison in a recent post here!) There's also a little coffee shop that I love stopping by if I'm not grabbing a full lunch.
For my birthday lunch, I wore my favorite Anine Bing dress. It's a bit summery, so I paired it with my favorite linen coat that I picked up during a trip to New York. The choker is actually a string from a shoe duster bag that happened to come unravelled. Blessings in disguise, my friends.
Anine Bing has quickly become one of my favorite brands. Her pieces are so effortless and they exude the laid back LA vibe I'm always trying to achieve. One of my favorite DC shops, Lynn Louisa, carries her line so I try to pop in once a month so I can snag my favorite pieces before they're sold out! Next time you're in Georgetown, be sure to check out Malmaison and Lynn Louisa!
