36 Hours in Washington D.C.

Washington D.C. Is one of my favorite cities in the world. There is never a dull moment. This city is rich in history and culture. It is a true melting pot.

Oh and most importantly my bestie Sharae (@raesimone) lives here! So I decided on mostly a whim to go visit her for the weekend!

Saturday morning 11am: Brunch Vinoteca DC

My dear friend Anna (@pinup.pooh) joined us for a lovely bottomless mimosa brunch!

The food was beyond delicious and the drinks were bottomless. The meal was a little bit on the pricier end. My bill came out to around $50 after tip but I think it was well worth the money spent. I loved the location of this restaurant in Columbia Heights. It was a modern yet very casual part of town. 

Saturday afternoon 1pm: Shopping - Columbia Heights

We had a blast walking the streets and popping to different stores. We found an actual brick and mortar ModCloth store so I was thrilled to get to spend the afternoon sopping some vintage reproduction outfits!

Saturday afternoon 3pm: Photo Shoot- Columbia Heights

This area of town is so fun and eclectic. Between all the stores and shops there are beautiful murals. We stopped at each for a fun and impromptu photo shoot

Saturday evening 4pm: Early Dinner- CAVA

This spot is a DC staple. I HAVE to eat here each time I visit. There are a few throughout the city. Think Chipotle but Mediterranean . This place has the freshest ingredients and its full of flavor. I would DIE if they brought a location to Jacksonville. 

Saturday night 6pm: Shopping in Georgetown

I LOVE this little pocket of DC. Probably because I am so boujee haha. It's a preppy and fun section of town. FILLED with shopping, restaurants, and my favorite place EVER-Ladurée a French macaron shop. If you follow me on IG you probably already know how much I love these delicacies!

Sunday morning 10am: Smithsonian National Museum of American History 

This is one of my favorite of the DC Museums. My other favorites being the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Air and Space Museum. We enjoyed looking at the different exhibits showing different pockets of time in our nation's history. We even got to see the ruby red slippers from Wizard of Oz!

Sunday afternoon 1pm: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport

It was time to fly home after a quick and WONDERFUL 36 hours. Would you ever take this quick of a trip? Let me know in this post comments!
