Hot Child in the City

My one and only vacation this summer is officially over. My best friend, Jackie, and I spent a couple of days in Washington D.C. visiting her brother and my sister. We were even able to squeeze in a 24-hour trip to NYC. I forgot how much I love that city. After spending just one day there, my long-time desire to move there has been rekindled.

It was my first time visiting D.C., so I was really excited. I was surprised at how much hotter it was than Austin. It was so humid, it felt like walking through a swamp. There was a film of sweat on my face anytime we were outside, so I didn't take pictures of every single outfit I wore. Thanks to Jackie reminding me, I was able to capture a few.

This was taken in the Union Station right after our arrival in D.C. I wore a Gap tank top, a thrifted skirt from Goodwill, a belt from Wish (now closed), and Bakers sandals.

Jackie and I went to the Smithsonian National Zoo while our siblings worked on Monday. I wore a vintage men's shirt from Cream Vintage, thrifted men's Levis made into cutoffs, and Bakers sandals.

In retrospect, I probably should have worn a tank top. Or at least something not made of polyester. Thankfully, they had misters!

This was right before our departure to the airport for our flight home. I couldn't miss my last chance to pose in front of Jackie's brother's very cool three-story row house. I wore a Forever 21 dress and necklace, a belt from Wish, and Bakers sandals.

I had such a wonderful time in D.C. I can't wait to go back and see everything I missed. Now that my vacation is over, I'm looking forward to moving into my new apartment. I suppose I have my last semester as a UT Austin undergrad to look forward to as well, but I have no idea how I'm paying for it. My financial aid is still up in the air, but I'm not letting it bring me down. I've still got two weeks until it's time to panic!
