48 Hours in Williamsburg, VA

Jamestowne

J and I went to Williamsburg this past weekend with one of our fav couples, and the historic town did not disappoint! I’ve always wanted to visit, thanks in part to Felicity and the American Girl series (#tbt), and of course wanted to take advantage of it being an easy drive from DC.

We got to Williamsburg around at around 2pm on Saturday, checked into the hotel, and headed to Williamsburg Winery for wine + snacks before freshening up before dinner. Sunday was filled with more food, history, and lots of walking…pretty much what you’d expect a Williamsburg weekend to look like. Breaking down what we did (and where we ate, of course) below!

Friday Things

Ranunculus

TGIF, friends! This week was a bit of a doozy, but we celebrated a low key Valentine’s Day (casual sushi or takeout is our tradition) and I got to check out Elaya Vaughn by Kate Pankoke’s studio last night for a fun sip + sketch event. She makes stunning wedding dresses and has the cutest space. If you’re recently engaged (or generally like looking at pretty things), check her out!

I’m relieved it’s Friday, and excited to be heading to Williamsburg, VA for the first time tomorrow. Everyone raves about this historic town and it doesn’t hurt that it’s supposed to be in the upper 60s all weekend. Follow along on Instagram (I’ve been really into Insta-stories lately…kinda loving more than Snapchat!) and if you have a long weekend, enjoy the extra day! :)

SHOPPING: Unsurprisingly, J.Crew new arrivals strike again! So.many.goodies.

OF NOTE…

Don’t have much for ya today because this week was nuts and I didn’t spend much time browsing the internet!

– Local to DC or planning a visit? Washingtonian’s 100 Best Restaurants is out! There are some no-brainers and some that surprised me (especially that certain ones were so far down the list) but from what I’ve heard, you can’t go wrong with any.

– Anyone else love blood oranges? This blood orange coffee cake from one of my favorite food blogs is calling my name!

Loving this snowy look from Blair–it’s layering at its best! Seriously making me sad that we’ve missed a big storm this year.

ON C&L:

Recapping our trip to Lake Como (with lots of pictures)–you’ll definitely want to plan a trip :)

New outfit post with a pink sweater that’s necessary this time of year.

– Yay for major sales on winter stuff right now! 10 things to buy.

Lake Como: November 2016

Lake Como

And we’re finally at the last post of Europe 2016 (here are one and two). As I mentioned, we took a train to Lake Como for two nights in the beginning of our trip (after spending one night in Zurich). Lake Como was at the top of my travel wish list for years…my parents and I took a train through when I was younger and ever since then, I’ve been desperate to make it back for an actual stay.
