Pretty idyllic weekend thus far - lots of wholesome outdoor activities and even a little bit of sensible shopping. Long and short: went to the Georgetown flea market, met friends at the Georgetown waterfront (tolerable once a year, maximum), checked out Ripple, and generally soaked in some sun.

BB Dakota dress
Stella McCartney shoes
vintage bangle
necklace from a boutique in Hoboken
jade ring

PS Very pleasantly surprised by Ripple - reasonably-priced wine by the glass, generous pours, and great snacks :-)

E, I've been brooding over buying a Missoni maxi dress for a while and nearly decided against it, but seeing you in this beautiful floaty floral I'm immediately changing my mind. On the other hand... I haven't got your length. Difficult, difficult...
