Two things I make sure to bring with me on trips are dresses and a good pair of flats. Dresses are the simply chic outfit all in one, while a pair of dressier flats will keep you looking polished and your feet happy while exploring. I knew that my dad and I would be doing tons and tons of walking while in D.C. (that's the fun part!) so I packed these slip on gold pointed loafers. The classic mens wear inspired shoe never fails and kept me going all day long without any discomfort. I always prefer a pointed toe to keep the look modern. The purple and pink floral print with the lace detailing could not be any more lovely. It's the perfect dress for Sunday brunch, a day of sightseeing, or a fun date night filled with walks in the park, ice cream, and a movie. I'm wearing a size small for reference.
For the beginning of this day in D.C., my dad and I did a tour of the Capitol building and went to Union Station to meet some friends of mine. We then all had lunch al fresco at a new restaurant called Romero and Juliet. It's right near Union Station and I highly recommend it if you're in the neighborhood. Next, we all trekked down to the Library of Congress. I kept joking that I was waiting for Nick Cage to pop out at any time! Both the Capitol and Library are magnificent buildings. I was blown away by the grandeur and architecture between the two. Simply breathtaking. Below are some indoor photos from each.
