Last week, Amy and I were able to spend a day together in Washington, DC, and Arlington, VA, where our short-term rental apartment is located. I gave her a five second tour of our apartment (it’s pretty small!) and then we headed over Key Bridge for Georgetown.
A big bonus of being so close to Georgetown is that’s where my daughter goes to school; she’s been able to come over a few times a week for dinner and last week we also went out to Wolf Trap with a picnic to see the Washington Ballet perform.
The main reason for our trip was that one of our favorite online stores, Tuckernuck, was having a sale, and their flagship store is actually located in Georgetown.
The store was petite, but beautiful, with great decor. Don’t you love the blue and white wallpaper in the fitting rooms (and the silhouettes)?
I tried on a few thing I’d been eyeing online, like this faux suede blouse.
I considered this red dress–it was a nice quality crepe fabric–but in the end I decided the tiers were a little too much for me. In the end, we (surprisingly) both walked away empty-handed.
We headed back over the bridge to Arlington for lunch at Circa; of course I took a picture of my vegetable-quinoa bowl to show you (it was amazing). Then we wrapped up our afternoon with a stop at Trader Joe’s and The Container Store.
Even though I didn’t buy anything at Tuckernuck, I did pick up this Polly dress earlier in the month and wore it out to dinner one night with Amy and her husband.

Amy’s pale blue Miranda top is also from Tuckernuck and it looked beautiful on her. We were inadvertently repping them when we all went out to dinner.
Did I mention how beautiful the view is from their new house? We loved sitting outside and enjoying the sunset every night with our wine.
Over the next few weeks, I’m planning to share a few photos of our temporary apartment, as well as home tours from some of my talented friends. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
