This is one of my favorite hot-weather outfits because it's easy to wear and keeps you cool in humid climates, like Washington D.C. in the summer. If you're not familiar with what it's like, you're basically swimming through the air in the humidity; and from my last memory in November, the experience was quite the opposite.
It definitely made sightseeing a breeze and I enjoyed walking around the National Mall to see all the historic places and memorials. I was finally able to see the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool, Jefferson Memorial, and World War II Memorial. I also visited the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History to check out the Hope Diamond. And of course (for me), a trip to DC is not complete without dining at Founders Farmers. I had that tasty Skillet Corn Bread 3 days straight! It's probably a good thing this restaurant is across the country since I could probably eat it everyday!
I celebrated the 4th of July in Lake Tahoe; and the weekend consisted of the following: Soccer matches and World Cup viewings, boat rides and Chambers Landing Bar, wake boarding and tubing, BBQ's and fresh farmers market foods, board games like Settlers of Catan, breakfasts at Tahoe House Bakery, and fireworks along the pier. It's definitely my favorite holiday weekend I've spent up here so far.
