Pllaid-in-GeorgetownEven though it’s summer, it seems that the hazy, hot and humid days have hit us much earlier than normal. But that didn’t stop me from donning my summer casual to head to the Washingtonian’s Best of Washington Party. Before heading to the Building Museum, I thought it might be nice to venture to the other side of town and do a walk through Georgetown.BlueDoorOld muscats“What’s behind the door.” you might ask. Well I never found out but what I did find was some interesting tidbits of Georgetown. Like this fence at 28th and P. The fence, known as Daws fence, is made of old musket barrels from 1848 and allegedly used during the Mexican War.

Small in nature but still grand. DetailsshoesFor the Best of Washington party, I wanted something festive and fun. Lately, I’ve been loving the Black Fleece Collection from Brooks Brothers. The Georgetown location is the only store that carries these pieces in the area. Nothing says festive than a coral plaid blazer in linen perfectly paired with blue gray linen slacks. The coral pattern plaid is also available as slacks but I prefer only the jacket. It was statement enough. Finishing off my look is a knit grey tie, a neat change from a silk one, white lapel flow and Daddy Flat loafers by Christian Louboutin. Surprise! Men can wear red bottoms too!
Sprinkles Coverboy CupcakeParty or no party, no trip to Georgetown is complete without a trip to Sprinkles. So naturally, I made a detour to great gobble up one of those delectable treats. You know you have it bad if someone asks your favorite flavor and you answer, “All of them.” I think I’d make an excellent spokesman!Black-Fleece Crossing-Wiscosin3It’s okay to stand out in a crowd, just be yourself. And sometimes, add some splash!
