I think I might be in love… with my parka. I went spring shopping with my mom a few weeks ago and felt like a kid in a candy store gawking at all of the new colors, styles, and trends of this season. An item that was on my list before we even set out on our shopping adventure was a green parka jacket. I kept seeing them on Pinterest and around town, and thought it would be the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe. Trench, move over! My parka’s casual trendiness makes me happy, and keeps me dry on rainy days.
The day T and I took these photos was one of those days that was just plain old grey and nasty. Not rainy, but windy and unsettling. We had plans that night to celebrate our friend’s birthday at a “micro grant” dinner called CRAVE in Old Town, Alexandria. The premise of the dinner was amazing: panelists would speak to you about the projects they were working on and how they could use your contribution, then all of the guests would vote on their favorite platform. The winner received all of the proceeds to complete their project, so it was a great feeling to help someone do something great [big or small] in the community.
We took a pit stop at the Bethesda metro station tunnel on the way to dinner so Teddy could take some photos of the art installation, “Tunnel Vision,” for a Washington Post Express article. My favorite was the painting of the red bicycle.
