Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and life. Hope you have a nice stay!

Sadie Jane Travels: Washington, DC

Hello loves, and happy twenty eighteen! While its beginning has been a bit hectic with finals fast approaching, I'm happy for its arrival. Although the fresh start is welcomed, the chilling temperatures aren't. I'm currently craving a sunny spring day! Alas, that won't be happening in NC until at least March. Recently, though, I've had the worst case of wanderlust! Regardless of the cold weather, my family and I decided to venture up to Washington DC for the long weekend to visit a few colleges and enjoy the city. My dad actually spent most of his childhood wandering this city. Until recently we had family living in the area, and when he was little he would often fly up and spend his weekends visiting the museums and traipsing through the history-rich streets. Now that I'm about to take the next step of my life as a college student, I couldn't think of a more perfect place to spend the next four years. While we were up for the weekend, we visited Georgetown University! It was FREEZING COLD, but that didn't take away from the gorgeous architecture and beauty of the campus. I really fell in love with the college and will definitely be applying there later this year!

We also explored the Georgetown shopping district! I have traveled quite a bit, but this area is hands down the best shopping area I've ever visited (read about my last trip to Georgetown here). I adore the beautifully aged homes that line the streets throughout the district (perfect for pictures!) and the distinctive charm of the area. While meandering throughout the stores, we returned to perhaps my favorite place in the whole city: an art gallery called L'Enfant Gallery. Strolling through this shop is ethereal, especially for an art enthusiast like myself. The walls are lined from top to bottom with ancient art from around the world. If you ask me, the intimate setting beats any art museum! To make the experience even more incredible, there are four unique floors harboring art pieces and artifacts galore. I'm still dreaming about it now! I had such a wonderful time this weekend in the city and I hope I have the chance to call it home during my collegiate years.
