What a week!
Let’s start with last Friday - DC bid farewell to its most beloved pop-up, Cuyana. I dressed as french as possible with my slip dress and striped tee (to match their Le Sud summer theme) and met up with a few friends for their happy hour. I finally bought this hat I’ve been eyeing for quite some time and also brought home this black class tote! I’m going to miss them to pieces, but there’s always online!
Then I celebrated my friend Sophie Blake’s most recent jewelry collection in the most incredible preview show. She had a live violinist playing current tunes, models dressed to the nines (all wearing pieces you can get in her shop) and the most on-fleek makeup I’ve actually ever seen. I mean, YELLOW eyeshadow? You can see her latest pieces in her shop in Mosaic District.
For the rest of the weekend, we lounged by my aunt’s pool and watched Stranger Things. All weekend. I’m not proud of binge watching shows, but I could literally not help myself with this one. It’s SOOO GOOD. Word to the wise: don’t watch alone by yourself at night. Are you watching it?!
Earlier in the week, Washingtonian featured me and a few of my favorite blogging babes in an article on What to Wear When It's Hot and Humid in DC! What do you wear when it's insanely hot outside?
The beginning of the week was super low key (did you catch my Blogger Scene recap?), but then Wednesday was my birthday!! Hubs made the most awesome breakfast of my choosing (omelettes, my FAVE!) then I was off to work! I snuck away for lunch with Erin at Malmaison and had the cutest meal ever (complete with the most instagrammable marble tables!)
That night, hubby surprised me an Urban Stems bouquet and a private cocktail tasting at the Columbia Room! It was definitely one of the coolest experiences ever.
Then for dinner, we were off to Rose’s Luxury, a spot I’d been dying to try FOREVER! The wait was worth it and the food did not disappoint. The veggie pork sausage and lychee salad has my heart forever. Totally made up for our snippy server who decided to tell me I was WRONG when I informed her that the wine I tasted was a bit sweet. Eh, you win some you loose some.
Later in the week, I waxed poetic about ice cream sandwiches and the new Soul Cycle workout attire collection. Because nothing helps you get from "stuffing my face with an ice cream sammie" to "get me to the gym stat" like cute workout clothing.
My coworkers took me out to Barley Mac (one of my new favorite spots in Rosslyn!) and we ended the meal with THE MOST EPIC cookies fried in waffle batter with ice cream. I MEAN…
How was your week?!
