I had the most wonderful 4th of July today! My friends and I decided to go to Washington D.C. to celebrate the day. So, for the 7th and last day of my Anti-Me Challenge, I went with something simple, practical, and yet polished. I really like how the red blazer pops and adds structure to my collar shirt. I also of course love these plaid pumps, but that's nothing new ;)

We spent most of the day at Georgetown having a wonderful lunch and going shopping. I bought THE coolest blazer ever and I'm so excited to wear it! Also, today was an extremely hot day... so I treated myself to a yummy cold ice cream cone.

At night, we went to see the fireworks at the Lincoln Memorial. Truthfully, those fireworks are just amazing! I know that most Americans are used to seeing such a spectacular firework show, but I have never seen something quite like it. I was just oohhh-ing and aaahhh-ing at the beautiful colors and shapes. Aaahh, it was just so magical!

  4. Love this outfit! The shoes are the perfect finishing touch. I've really enjoyed your anit-me challenge. It's fun watching you wear combos that are outside of you usual, yet that still look very much like you.

    I saw the D.C. fireworks too, from my friends' roofdeck in Georgetown. I'm accustomed to seeing fireworks pretty often (Navy Pier in Chicago has them twice a week in the summer, and the White Sox do fireworks for a lot of their games) but the D.C. 4th of July fireworks really are great. I also saw the Alexandria fireworks on Saturday night before the 4th. Enjoyable as well.
