I couldn't leave you all without pictures of the shopping this past weekend. The highlight of the visit was seeing the Brooks Brothers concept store on M Street. It is the most gorgeous store I have ever walked into. I think I even like it better than the flagship store in NYC. It was tastefully decorated (but could you expect anything less?).
Isn't this chandelier gorgeous? I want one for my house at home... I'm thinking it may just look a little out of place in my college townhouse...
I loved that they had a pool table in the middle of the bottom floor!
Loved the little girls displays! They were too cute-- I wish they made everything in adult sizing! 
Another shop we stopped in: Sterling and Burke whichoffers luxury leather items. We stopped in not only to see the gorgeous store but bEw's roommate from boarding school's parents own it and he wanted to stop in and say hi. Tasteful doesn't even begin to cover the gorgeous store. Every inch of the store was decorated-- very understated but very well done. Definitely worth stopping in if you're ever in the area.
I couldn't help but to snap pictures of the beautiful leather products. I would love love love to own a handmade jewelry trunk! 
Isn't the decor lovely?
To end the weekend we took a fun boat ride on the Potomac. It took us from Old Town Alexandria into Georgetown where we had lunch at Clydes and did a little more browsing.
Isn't the view gorgeous?
Of course, boys being boys, we had to find a bar to watch the Redskins game (of course I was outnumbered and didn't get to watch the Steelers!). Rugby Cafe was the perfect fit... I loved the way they presented their menus! 
Have a fabulous day!

If you liked that- you have to visit the Brooks Brothers in Cleveland! It is stunning!!! Tower City is one of the oldest buildings in the city- the architecture is to die for. Its a must see!
