Weekend in Georgetown...Again

Before you all think I'm completely crazy, I know that I'm going backwards with these posts, just bear with me, I had pictures on two separate cameras. Anyways, one of the things I did over the weekend was yet another trip to Georgetown. If you've read this blog in the past, you know that I love Georgetown. Everything about it is just perfect, with surprises in each visit. This occasion was no different, unfortunately it was raining!

However, that didn't stop the tourists from visiting Georgetown Cupcakes. Ever since the show restarted on TLC, the line has been down the block.

So instead of getting a cupcake like our usual visit, we opted to try some Macaroons from Dean & Deluca. Now let me tell you about D&D; it's a small grocery store that is a-mazing! Avoiding the crazy prices, the products being sold were just beautiful. Their pastry section in particular was to die for. We couldn't leave without taking one of each of these pretty macaroons (minus coconut of course). I definitely want to find a decent recipe for these desserts to make them at home. Aren't they cute?
Of course, I had to go shopping (just a little) at j.crew. I left with a few purchases: a little shimmer, a little gingham, and a little plaid! Please no one yell at me for spending more money! It's an issue I know lol. The good thing is that I've sustained from online purchases...that's where the evil is!

The boyfriend and I had a really great time in Georgetown like usual, even with the rain. Even if you aren't going to Georgetown anytime soon, here are a few items that you should think about bringing on your trip:

Hat: For those sunny, and bad hair days (Hey! We all have them)
Sunglasses: To achieve that Audrey Hepburn vibe.
Cardigan: Just in case it's cold outside or inside
Jeans/shorts if it's hot: They're just super comfy!
Scarf: For those windy days. Plus it adds an easy punch of color
Tote bag: For carrying all of our unnecessary items that will find their way on the trip
Camera: For blog posts of course!

What did all of you do over the weekend?

 
P.S. A few more pictures from my trip are posted on my tumblr: here!

By reading your blog I've fallen even more in love with Georgetown, something about seeing your candid photos. I love that outfit you put together.
