dinner was great and afterwards we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather by exploring the city. i grew up about an hour outside of dc, so coming downtown was never a big deal. i sometimes forget how amazing of a city it is, because it's always been so accessible to me. anthony is from pittsburgh and thinks dc is the coolest place on earth. between the monuments and the museums and all of the important government people, it's basically his heaven on earth.
since the dress is such a statement piece, i decided to go easy on the accessories. i popped in some gold
studded earrings from forever 21. and of course i couldn't resist wearing my favorite boots. i ordered
these babies for $35 on amazon through zooshoo and it was the best purchase i ever made. i have a deep, passionate love for combat boots and if it was up to me, i would wear them all day, everyday. and these are obviously a million times cooler because they have studs on them and i would buy a pink polka dot sweater if it had studs on it. but since i don't plan on joining the armed forces anytime soon, sadly, this is not an option and i have to switch it up from time to time with flats, sandals, converse, etc.
so for the rest of the night we walked around and held hands and got ice cream and enjoyed each other's company. his mom and sister arrived at the megabus later that night and we're super excited to be having our first guests in our apartment! we plan on playing board games, cooking, drinking beer, exploring baltimore, and heading to the beach on a day trip! i'm so excited. also, my mom and his mom are going to meet each other for the first time. which is pretty cool since we've been dating for a year and a half. it should be fun.
i'll be back with another post soon. thanks for reading.
