Happy Monday! Gosh, it feels like Thanksgiving was just yesterday. Where does the time go?!

I spent the long weekend in Alexandria, Virginia visiting my aunt for the holiday. It was SUCH a fun weekend! I remember really liking Old Town Alexandria and Georgetown when I visited in 2007, but OMG — I want to move there. Like tomorrow. L.O.V.E.

I just can’t get over the fall foliage in the DC area. AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS. Weeks past peak and the absolutely leaves blow NYC out of the water. Times 5,000.

I wore this festive ensemble for an afternoon of wandering the Georgetown area. The very first J.Crew store I ever went in was the one on M Street in Georgetown so we had to pay a visit… I guess you can say that’s where it all began! We also stopped in Vineyard Vines, Madewell, LOFT, Anthropologie, etc. to check out the weekend sales. Lots of window shopping! ;)

The line to Georgetown Cupcake was INSANELY long, but I really wanted to try GTCC as a part of my pumpkin cupcake crawl. I know there is a NYC location, but I’ve yet to make it in and it felt more authentic to have my first one in D.C. We weren’t going to wait the 45 minutes in the freezing cold, so I took my aunt to Sprinkles down the street because she was a first-timer. We, of course, had the pumpkin!

In true cupcake-connoisseur fashion, we swung back by Georgetown Cupcake right after they opened on Sunday morning. No line, woo hoo! And yes, their pumpkin spice cupcake is to die for. The Soho location will be seeing a lot more of me, that’s for sure!

I love the leather detailing on this Juicy Couture top. Good thing there are some gold tassels because I definitely forgot to put on jewelry before I left my aunt’s house. I think the cold weather freezes my brain some days…
