There’s definitely truth behind the idea that people are often happier by the water. Having grown up in landlocked Dallas, I didn’t really realize or appreciate the truth behind this statement. Everyone who says that was really onto something…
If you follow along on Instagram or Snapchat (mons3), you probably saw that Katie and I spent Friday night in Annapolis. We left work a little early and despite being stuck in beach-bound traffic, checked into the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel before dinnertime. Let me tell you–it was the best 21 hour mini-vacation ever.
We were back in DC by 4:30 on Saturday, had some downtime, and spent the evening celebrating Lauren’s birthday at Barcelona. I’ll be talking about what all we did in Annapolis later this week, but for now, wanted to share a little peek + my favorite summer sandals!
We snapped these photos Saturday morning after breakfast by the water. The weather was perfect–warm, sunny, and breezy. The cobblestone and brick streets are one of my favorite parts of this cute town, and the downtown area is filled with a mix of local and chain businesses including restaurants, shops, ice cream stores (!!!), and more. Both the Naval Academy and the state capitol are also just a short walk away.
About this outfit: These shoes are my latest obsession. They’re what make this otherwise casual outfit a dressier one and go with everything. You’ve heard me rave about M.Gemi before, and these sandals prove why. They’re so comfy (we’re talking one wear to break in) and naturally are incredibly well-made. While on the pricier side, they are a great investment them if you’re looking for a timeless, versatile pair of sandals you can wear both to the office and off the clock, and with dresses, shorts, jeans, rompers, and skirts alike. No joke, I wore them to work 3x last week.
