How was your weekend? Mine was jam-packed–I managed to shop the Tuckernuck and Salt and Sundry sales, grab dinner with a friend and her boyfriend in Georgetown, log a few hours at my part-time gym job (something I started a few weeks ago), have dinner with my family at home (which turned into me and my sister rummaging through all of my old papers/cards from elementary and middle school…hilarious!), take a SoulCycle Soul Survivor class (a birthday present–I turned 27 on Wednesday!), visit the Wharf for the first time, and read this book, which was adorable (full review to come in this month’s reading roundup!)–whew! I also managed to take several 1-2 hour naps…weekend afternoon naps are the best!
If you haven’t been down to the Wharf, you need to go. It’s a lot like the Georgetown waterfront but much more popular at the moment. There are some chains like Shake Shack and Dolcezza that are also in other parts of DC, but there are plenty of unique restaurants and bars (I loved the Brighton, which is owned by the same people who developed the Brixton, American Ice Company, etc). It’s also the perfect place for blog/IG shoots thanks to the colorful mural above! I don’t know what took me so long to get there (although it is kind of out of the way), and I’m glad I finally made the trek over.
A few people asked me about the Tuckernuck and Salt and Sundry sales when I posted about them on Instagram. Tuckernuck had a big 30 percent off sale in store, and they’re still offering 25 percent off online. There are tons of great items left, so definitely place an order soon if there’s something you like! I picked up this poppy-colored Alexa bag in store and am planning on using it for work. It got amazing reviews, is super spacious, and is just such a fun shade–plus, with a 30 percent discount off of $53 (marked down from $175 originally), it was an amazing deal. Even the sales associate ringing me up commented on how popular the bag is among Tuckernuck employees! While there were people buying and trying on tons of items, I tried to limit myself and only picked up the bag and this scarf, which has gotten rave reviews among fellow blogger friends. I love how festive the orange is for early fall!
Salt and Sundry, one of my favorite shops in DC (which is dangerously nearby on 14th Street), had its own little summer sale as part of a greater neighborhood wide event, DC Dog Days. Everything in-store was 20 percent off, and they also had a little table of goodies marked down even further. I grabbed a couple of items including this Boy Smells candle–I’d been wanting to try one by the brand for ages. I’ve already used it two nights in a row and love the scent.
How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one!
