Today, I bundled up to go to the Library of Congress where I had planned to make big headway on a paper. But like so many of the best laid plans, this one didn't turn out exactly as I hoped and I ended up falling down a research rabbit hole and spending the day with my nose in a big stack of books while checking out this view (not too shabby! just don't tell the people in charge that I was breaking the rules and taking surreptitious photos). This outfit is just the kind of laid-back, simple look that I love: a crisp white button-up and corduroys (nerd staples) with a few pops of color. And of course, a nerdy book bag. Hope you have just the weekend you need, whether it's restful, fun, or productive--I'm hoping the weather clears up enough for a bike ride, and I have my heart set on some honeycrisp apples from the U St farmers' market (the best!).
