Hey there! We’re heading to D.C. for a few days – Mike has a conference – so we thought we’d take the boys out of school for a day and turn it into a little family trip.
Which reminds me that I forgot to tell the kids’ teachers. SIGH.
We’re going to be staying at the Capitol Hill Hotel (Cam’s fav, if you guys remember) and are pumped to explore. Does anyone have any recommendations? We’re bringing the kids to see Antony and Cleopatra (fueling both their Roman and – this is new – their Shakespeare obsessions thanks to this book), and we’re also hoping to hit the Spy museum. It sounds so freaking cool. I’d love some food recos or other fun things to do with the kiddos, if anyone has thoughts.
Sale, sale, sale. The big news, of course, is the Nordstrom Fall Clearance Sale. You can find all of our top picks from this sale (and a few others) in our Weekend Sale Report. I’m deciding between this gold bee clutch and this silver one that looks like a sea creature (you know how I love over-the-top bags, especially during the holidays). We also just updated the article with picks from Banana (obsessed with this faux fur scarf or this bomber jacket), as well as entertaining and decor items on sale at CB2. Now I just have to figure out where to put this acrylic easel. Gorg, no?
I heart everything Morgan. Shop Buru just launched it’s holiday collection, and true to form, Morgan’s done a great job. There’s some seriously fun pieces – like this skirt….or this one. If you guys aren’t familiar with Shop Buru (or Morgan), check out her recent family Halloween photo – it’s genius….or this recent piece she wrote about her struggle with bipolar disorder, and how authenticity matters more than ever.
Seriously everybody go buy these velvet leggings. I had a reader ask about how to style velvet leggings, so I went out and picked up these, in wine. Dear god the COMFORT. And….they’re verrrry sexy. I’ll be wearing them to the Folger Theater tonight, and will try to do some IG stories. Coming soon to a blog near you.
Win or lose? The new tax plan, demystified. A list of who wins, and who loses, in plain english.
I normally have more to say, but I have a train to catch. Ugh. Hate. Packing.
Have a good weekend!!
