Washington DC

a

- Fletcher for Lyell romper
- UO canvas skimmers
- vintage coach purse

From the looks of the photos it may seem that we had a chilly day to walk around the capital, but it was actually quite hot and sticky. A few rain showers interrupted our day but over all it was quite nice. Mostly I wanted to wear something that would be comfortable, keep me cool and dry out quickly in case we got rained on. This romper was good for all three!

The first part of the day we spent walking around Georgetown. We took a walk along the canal, visited the staircase from The Exorcist and did a little shopping. I had a UO gift card that was easily spent on a couple of dresses and a hat for Tom. Photos of those later! Luckily all of the rain came while we were shopping so it was easy to duck into a store whenever called for.

Speaking of ducks (har, har)... after tiring ourselves of shopping we headed over to the mall for some touristy action. We'd planned on going to the top of the Washington Monument but didn't end up with enough time so instead we looked on from afar. The reflecting pool was full of ducks and ducklings which was enough to entertain me for the rest of the afternoon. I caught this little guy showing off some of his super-cute-baby-duck-moves.

As for The National show, the whole reason we were there to begin with... it was amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. They played tons of songs (nearly the entire new album) and sounded great.

Oh, and thanks to everyone for the well wishes on my jury duty experience. I have good news! After hours of waiting in jury-duty-purgatory, the case I was called in for was settled at the last minute. Yay! That means I was dismissed for the week and can't be recalled for another three years. Whew!

Excellent stuff about the jury duty :-)

We've been having hot & sticky weather with (thundery) showers as well over here. The romper sounds a great outfit choice and looks it too!

Love everything about this! The romper is precious!

I'm always conflicted about rompers, but I really love the simplicity and classiness of this one. You wear it well!

Rosie said...

Dear Sally Jane Vintage,

Soe Kabbabe said...

Nice pictures!! I love your hair...it is natural?? I wish to have the same red as you! the bad thing is red get away prett fast :(

Sally Jane Vintage said...

Thanks so much for all of your comments!

Amorelle: They were really great! I only snapped a couple of photos at the very beginning of the show. I hate to be one of those people who watch the whole thing through their camera. ;)

Quincy: I ordered it from the UO website but it doesn't seem to be there any more. Maybe it sold out?

Soe Kabbabe: Thanks, but no, it's not my natural color. I'm trying to let it grow out to its natural blond state. We'll see how it goes!

I saw your picture on calivintage's tumblr. I work for Urban and love that romper and so I clicked. Then, after reading this entry, realized that you must have gotten it at the Georgetown one which is where I work ha ha. Yeah, I'm a stranger, but I just found this super ironic lol. The romper looks great! Great blog, too!
