Outfit Ideas: Yankee Doodle Dandee

washington dc outfit CAPITAL STYLE = RED WHITE  & BLUE, What else would it be?

When you have only one weekend in a place and one small bag, choose a color theme or clothes that are easily mixed & matched. To celebrate our first wedding anniversary we decided to spend this spring weekend in Washington DC.

My weekend wardrobe selection criteria was:
  • comfortable for all of the walking & biking to touristy spots
  • needed to fit in a small weekend travel bag
  • cool for dinner & drinks 
  • & cute enough to blog about it.
DAY ONE - Travel, Brunch, Bike Tour & Museums

Printed Pants are comfortable, trendy and great for hiding legs that are still to white to bare.
Blue Pants and Light Pink top are from Zara. The Canary yellow sweater and brown leather shoulder bag are vintage finds that will probably be part of my wardrobe forever. The low wedges are Dolce Vita (last year - I need new ones in exactly the same style because they are PERFECT)  This Fire Red Beaded necklace feels very Spring in a hand crafted kind of way and adds the perfect dose of color.washington DC, outfit ideas, red white & blue, jenee naquin

Ensemble for Evening includes
All-in-one Black Jumpsuit. Dolce Vita Low wedges. Vintage Brooks Brothers RW&B Silk Scarf purchased at Housing Works

The bare shoulders say Sexy Night time outfit but the loose cotton and low heels are comfortable enough for that night time bike ride to see all of the monuments lit up in the dark.

red jacket
Spring Days can still be chilly in D.C. so this really cute Pin Dot Strawberry colored jacket keeps me warm and Red, White & Blue themed.
Jacket is a hand me down from my friend, Petra ( I love when Petra cleans out her closet ;)
Ivory Silk top Tory Burch    Vintage Brooks Brothers silk scarf as Belt
G-Star Jeans (FYI - G Star jeans are so worth the splurge - they make your derriere perfection - true story)
Washington DC is one of my new favorite American Cities. Let me know if you need any ideas on what to to or what to wear while you are there.
