Fashionably Early

9:14 PM

As a resident of the nation's capital, sometimes I take all historic landmarks and iconic views for granted. Despite the fact that I drive by Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial twice a day to go to work, I only visit them a few times a year. Last week, I attended a friend's wedding in the Lincoln Memorial. The wedding started at 7am (that's right, AM). For the first time, I watched the peaceful sunrise in DC and all the "early birds" slowly waking up the city for another busy day, including a group of soldiers warming up for the day ahead. 

Although the autumn temperatures in DC usually stay in the high 60s to 70s, it does get a little chilly in the mornings. I put on my trench coat for the first time this season and waited for the groom and bride to arrive...


Trench: Zara (similar)
Dress: J.Crew Factory (here - One of my favorite suit dresses. A very versatile piece!)
Shoes: Ann Taylor
Bracelets: Ann Taylor (similar - great for small wrists!)
Tote: Ann Taylor (similar for Fall colors)
