A Day in Washington D.C.

Hey everyone! This week has been so busy for me. I started the week off in Boston, Massachusetts for three days and two nights. Then on Thursday I headed to Washington D.C for two days and one  night. What's the reason for all of my traveling this week? College Tours! It's cool that I get to visit all of these new places, but it's just so tiring. So, today and yesterday I visited two colleges and did some wandering of my country's capital.

This is mostly a photo post...but oh well! I need to go back to Washington D.C. because I really want to see the Smithsonian Museum.

 Here are some of the monuments and places I saw in this city.

 There was some official business going on in The White House when I was there, so unfortunately this is as close I could get to the building. For some reason I pictured The White House with more privacy to roam. It was cool nonetheless to see where the presidents of the United States have lived.

 This is the Eisenhower Executive Office Building which is the biggest building I've ever seen. It's huge! The whole building is filled with different details, but the architecture is identical no matter where you look on the building.  This building has a long history and many presidents have handled official business in it. 

This is the Washington Monument. It commemorates the first President of the United States... George Washington (who also appears on our one dollar bills).

Later on...

My family and I ate at a restaurant called "Founding Farmers", it's a pun on the term "founding fathers." The restaurant was so good! We originally weren't going to go in, but it was worth it. I had fish and chips.

 Later on, we stopped at an ice cream store called "Captain Cookie and The Milkman". Basically you have a choice of eight different cookies, and ten different ice cream flavors and you order an ice cream sandwich. I ordered Cookies N' Cream between chocolate chip cookies. The cookies were warm and it was delicious. It's a big ice cream sandwich, but it was a nice way to end a week of college touring.

I hope you liked this post! 
Have you ever been to Washington D.C?

OOTD: Golden Gate Park

Hey everyone! It's been awhile. This month I have traveled to California, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C. In California, I was able to visit San Francisco, Monterrey, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbra with my singing group from school. On the second day of the trip we visited Golden Gate Park and did a whole tour of the city of San Francisco.

Here is my OOTD:

My Outfit:
Bomber Jacket- American Eagle 
Floral Shirt - American Eagle
Ripped Jamie Jeans - Top Shop
Sneakers - Adidas Superstars 

I've been super obsessed with bomber jackets, and I finally was able to buy one! Mine was on clearance from American Eagle and cost about 36 dollars.

         My friends and I took so many pictures by the Golden Gate Bridge because it was so sunny and beautiful that day. New York has been rainy and cold, and the sunshine was a change. I'm always unprepared for the weather when I go on trips, so there I was in long sleeves when it was very warm out.

I've been to San Francisco before ( you can check out that post here ) when I was 15, but this time I got to see even more and be with my friends. The Golden Gate Bride was so pretty, and interesting to learn about. Did you know that it was originally supposed to be painted black and yellow?

 After visiting the Golden Gate Bridge we went to Sausalito (more photos coming soon). I was trying not to be too "tourist-y" but I had to take photos in from of the Golden Gate Bridge!

 Check out my friend Nina (featured above!) on her blog:

Lastly, this bomber jacket is officially my favorite jacket. The details of flowers on the back make it more unique. I like this jacket because it goes with any type of outfit especially jeans or leggings. I usually pair it with solid colors because then more attention goes to the jacket.

I am so sorry that I haven't been posting. I am on Spring Break, and I've been college touring. I know it's not an excuse to not be updating, but I have been motivated to blog again because more interesting things have been happening. Thanks for the support with this blog! I can't believe it's been almost 4 years!!
