52 dates // 42

The date // A night in DC.

One farmer’s market, two parties, fifty leather pouches (ahem… okay about thirty-five that turned out), multitudes of meetings, and one husband and one wife who’ve learned to be sure to savor every little second alone…

This week, on top of prep for our third Field + Foundry event this weekend, we’ve had plans almost every night.

So since one of those plans — the exciting opening night celebration of West Elm’s new Logan Circle store — took us down to DC, we made the best of the moment and took some extra leisurely time to enjoy the city.

After touring West Elm’s beautiful new store with Creative Director Vanessa Holden — an extra special glimpse into the brilliance behind the brand — we took a stroll down 14th to browse its ever-changing facade. So much has changed in the neighborhood over the past few years, and these days it seems like a hot new restaurant is popping up every week. It’s been an especially shocking transformation for us, since we really only make it down to the city to wander (and not to work) every few months.

We decided the occasion was worth a treat, so after sitting down to coffee at Dolcezza, shared a tasty dinner (and oh so much delicious bread) at Le Diplomat, just down the street.

Thank you again to West Elm for such a lovely week! We’re so impressed, as always, by your commitment to local makers and affordable style, and by each and every one of the sweet folks behind the brand.

P.S. Can you believe we just have 10 dates to go? How did the year fly so fast? For a look back at the rest of our 52 dates series, click here.
