these ladies in georgetown

Saturday, September 24

This weekend, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Tania {of What Would A Nerd Wear} and Megan Nielsen {THE designing and sewing mommy wonder}. We met in Georgetown for a yummy brunch at Cafe Bonaparte {so charming by the way ... highly recommend!} I went out on a limb and ordered their poached eggs with hollandaise sauce.  A surprisingly delicious change of pace, after all these years of waffles, maple syrup and bacon. {I like what I like}
It was the best afternoon. These girls are lovely on these here internets, but even better in person. Tania is the essence of grace and friendliness. Her polka dot skirt was a real hit with the gents that day {cause she's just that soopa spicy}. And Megan was bubbly and completely charming.  Plus I could have listened to her gorgeous Australian accent forever.
It's so great when you can pick up with someone like you've known them for ages. Making connections with women like this is exactly what I love about this whole blogging thing.

Derek and Catherine said...

My husband and I are both in grad school in DC, and we live right up the road from Cafe Bonaparte. I peeked in this morning actually, as the bus was driving by, and I agree that it is quite quaint and charming, though I have yet to eat there. Anyway, I feel like one of these days I'm going to bump into you on the street or something! Hope you and your husband are liking the city so far!

cute shirt! it wasn't homemade traditional hollandaise was it?? that has raw eggs. one of the things i missed the most while pregnant was hollandaise sauce.

ah! Georgetown is probably my favorite city in the whole U.S. Well, I haven't actually been to every city in the country so it's hard for me to say that for 100% sure ... but it's definitely up there. I spot a Madewell bag in Tania's hand ... can't wait to see that item pop up on her blog!

mriden05 said...

Did you use a flat iron or a curling iron to style your hair in these pics? I love it!

sartoriography said...

Isn't Tania the awesomest of awesomes? We've gotten to be friends via the blog world, too, and the times we've hung out in person have been wonderful. And that's a skirt from my shop that she's wearing- woohoo!

Love the color of your top and how perfectly preggers hot it is. That's a hard thing to be, but you've rocked it. :)

A Lost Feather said...

you all look adorable.. and georgetown ugh.. how cute is it!? i was just there on friday just for the day and we stopped in madewell.. so CUTE. that telephone booth. want.

i hope you and baby are doing well!

Fashalina aka The Hyperbalist said...

Hiii I just discovered your blog through your guest post on Oh Joy, and I was outrageously excited to discover that you live where I live!!! I have been scrolling through your blog for like an hour now, and think you have the best pregnancy style {well, style in general} that I have ever seen! I am in awe of the way you throw the most creative and chic outfits together, while being 8 months pregnant. Also I love Megan Nielsen and I LOOOOVVVEEE Bonaparte! One of my fave brunch joints in the city.
