Happy Monday, y’all! I spent the weekend in Washington, D.C. visiting my best friend and checking out all the craziness going on around the city. My booty is whipped from the trip. We ventured out during the presidential inauguration and it was wild (and honestly a little scary). On our way to the National Mall, we passed the area where they were giving out free weed – I think it was a protest to legalize pot everywhere? Regardless, it was nuts to see literally THOUSANDS of people just smoking in the middle of the day out in public. They told us the goal was to all light up four minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech (LOL).
From there, we came upon the riots. Cops were throwing tear gas bombs at protesters who were lighting trash cans on fire. We didn’t stay long as this area was a little chaotic. When the tear gas bombs went off it sounded like shots and folks would run out of the crowds grabbing their faces. At the public entrance to the inauguration, protesters had arranged sit-ins at the gate and were imploring officers to join them. I could go on and on about the trip but overall, being in D.C. this weekend was quite the unique experience to say the least.
Back to fashion – it’s another blush look. Are you surprised? I have this $25 sweater in multiple colors because it is such a good, basic layering piece. I paired it with all neutrals here and for my fiance’s birthday dinner last weekend. It was a little warmer out, so I broke out these peep-toe chunky wedges.
