If there was one word to describe Georgetown, it would have to be charming. It's one of my favorite spots to visit while I'm in D.C. This was the last destination for my dad and I while we were in D.C. I wanted him to see one of JFK's homes while he was living there before becoming president elect, the shops and restaurants, and all of the lovely homes. This post is special because I got to take some of my photos at JFK's old home (its the tall brick one I'm standing by with the green door.) For our outing, I wore these chic gingham pants that fit perfectly. I usually have trouble with pants since I'm petite. I found out that Old Navy has a petite section (online only) and decided to give it a try. Success! I got a 0 petite and could not be happier with them. So for all you of shorter gals out there definitely give their petite section a try! These silver heels are so dreamy! I feel in love as soon as I saw them. The chunky heels makes them a breeze to walk in and the pointy toe keeps them sophisticated and polished. I knew going to Georgetown in them would be a great test since some of the sidewalks are brick lined and I had no trouble in these.

So as I mentioned before, this brick home belonged to JFK and Jackie right before he became President. It's the most famous of all the homes he owned while living in Georgetown. There's some various pretty photos around town. My dad and I made sure to eat at Martin's Tavern where it's said that JFK proposed to Jackie in what they now have marked as "The Proposal Booth." It's usually reserved by couple looking to make that big step! While we were sitting there, a couple actually did become engaged. We were sitting right next to the booth too and watched the whole thing happen. The restaurant erupted in cheers and clapping. It was so exciting! I also have a photo of my dad sitting in the "rumble booth" where JFK would sit every Sunday to have his breakfast while reading the paper. After hitting JFK's home and Martin's Tavern, we walked around town and stopped in some shops, ultimately making our way to a bookstore where we found some goodies. We got some coffee's and continued to stroll around the town and take in all of the sights. Before we headed over to Georgetown, we took a walk down to the White House. I've been fascinated by Presidential history my whole life and always make sure to stop down while I'm in town.
