The other day Ann Taylor asked me if I would like to share three of my favorite places in DC in three of my favorite Ann Taylor looks. Ummm is that even a question? I immediately responded with a big ‘ole …of course!

My three favorite places are all in my DC neighborhood, Dupont Circle. In my opinion, and I may be a touch biased, the best ‘hood in DC.

Let’s start with my favorite restaurant in the area. If you follow me on Instagram you know Lauriol Plaza for queso and frozen swirl margaritas with the girls may be something I do more times a week then I care to admit.

My second favorite place is a combination of three amazing things; bagels, my pug Lucy and people watching. Like clockwork every weekend the hubby and I grab Bethesda Bagels (the closest to New York style bagels you’ll find in DC) and head to the Dupont Circle Park. The people watching is ah-mazing and Lucy loves making new furry friends and begging for a piece of our bagels.

Last, but definitely not least, is my favorite wine bar in DC. Veritas Wine Bar has been mentioned before on the blog but I will never turn down the opportunity to order a glass of wine from their never-ending list (it’s actually a book of options) and shoot there again. As a self proclaimed wino I recommend this place to anyone who wants to test their palette with new wines from around the world.A Lacey Perspective: #ANNinDCA Lacey Perspective: #ANNinDC A Lacey Perspective: #ANNinDC

All looks are amazing, but I especially love the second look! Is there a way to wear a maxi without destroying the hem? I’m 5’4″ without heels :-) Also, i love that you talk about your favorite DC places, I’ve been enjoying visits to the city for about 2 years now, and would love to actually move there at some point. It’s great to always see you out and about, especially with your adorable sidekick pug! Also, your legs are totally amazing (I hope that isn’t at all offensive!)- you can rock shorts so well!

Gorgeous looks! I also really love those sunnies — a great alternative to the blue reflective ones I’ve seen on so many other bloggers.

Adoring all three looks! Just gorgeous, and it was hard to pick just one so I just love them all. Your sense of style is very impeccable.

Seriously in love with those sunglasses! And with Dupont Circle. I actually stayed there on my last trip to DC. It was Christmas day and we went to a Moroccan restaurant for dinner because it was the only place open! I don’t remember what it was called but maybe you know? I was pleasantly surprised because normally I’m a really picky eater. I also got belly dancing lessons and was told I had “beautiful hips.” Clearly Dupont Circle is a cool place :)
