Day 4: Richmond, VA


We spent our fourth day of the trip in Richmond, VA! Our first stop was the Virginia Museum of Fine Art since we heard there was an amazing Picasso exhibit (thanks for the tip, Liza) and it was definitely worth the hefty ticket price. Picasso is one of my favorite artists and I just love the childishness of some of his pieces.

We also got to go thrifting in the downtown area. Jeremy walked away with a pretty sick sweater, a pair of trousers, and a purple button down. I ended up getting a little black dress for business occasions, a vintage Polaroid Sun 600 camera, and a mug that says "Big Hug Mug". Future favorite cup? I THINK SO.


(H&M Coat, Gap Chambray Shirt, Urban Outfitters Dress, HUE Tights, Urban Outfitters Flats)

These pictures were actually taken on Monument Road which is, like the name suggests, home to numerous monuments, including monuments dedicated to Thomas Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. The weather was perfect for taking a mile long stroll all the way down and back to where we parked the car. And even though we missed the cherry blossoms in D.C., we spotted a bunch of blossoms in Richmond. :)

This is also one of my favorite outfits that I put together last minute. I didn't pack wisely when I was throwing clothes into my little suitcase but I decided to tie up this chambray shirt over this white dress and I fell in love with it automatically.


Oh, and in regards to the picture above, it was Pi Day so Jeremy celebrated with a pizza pie. :)

  9. Big Hug Mug totally reminds me of the chocolate shop that sells delicious hot chocolate in these big handle-less mugs...called Hug Mugs! I've always wanted to buy one to make hot chocolate at home on cold days...it's so nice to warm your hands on :)
