Mini-trip

My favorite mural in DC

I once read an article in the travel section of the Post about how to take a "mini-trip" in DC--- you could go to "Jamaica" or "Peru" (among other places) by visiting a few key restaurants, bars and museum exhibits (That's what I love about this city!) I have a soft spot for this Afro-Colombian mural on U st--- the imagery feels straight out of the warm coastal region and sends an important message about the conditions of people living there.  (I thought maybe by standing in front of it I could pretend it wasn't 40 degrees outside!)  This was the caftan I mentioned I wore on Thanksgiving to allow for maximum food intake--- I think from now on I'll always go to dinner in such pieces :)

UPDATE: Getting ready for a big holiday lookbook shoot coming up this week with Spicy Candy DC, Lacey, and The President Wears Prada! I'll give you a hint--- there's pie involved :)

  1. Love the kaftan and the cute lil' purse. The mural is really beautiful. I always have to take a picture of it or take a picture in FRONT of it whenever I pass by.

  2. love the idea of maximizing space with loose clothes! I did the same thing by wearing a shirt dress on Thanksgiving. It was great not having to loosen the belt. Great photos as usual. I like the one with the xylophone
