A Day in the District: Sweet Summertime Edition

Summertime means vacations to the beach, soaking up the sun by the pool, and trying to not worry about life at the office.  From mouth-watering food to styles you cannot pass by, a day in the District will achieve all of your summer needs.

As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of day. With that in mind, head to Gourmet’s Market for your first stop of the day to satisfy your taste buds and maintain contentment for the rest of your day in the District. If a savory biscuit topped with fried chicken, a poached egg and tasty chipotle cream sauce sounds right up your alley, then this second place dish made by Gourmet’s Market in the International Biscuit Festival should be your choice for breakfast.  The delicacy is not yet on the menu, but upon special request, it will be happily made for you. Gourmet’s Market also has a wide range of delicious breakfast and lunch items on the menu and daily specials to fulfill any craving you may have with.

Now that you are full and happy, you are ready to continue your day in the District. Father’s Day is this month, and Southern Market has an excellent gift for any dad. If you are ahead of the game and have already found a gift, there are a variety of shops in Southern Market to browse for other gifts or a treat for you! Jewelry, candles, clothing, home décor and charming trinkets are only a few favorites featured in the market.  A fun trend that is currently displayed in one of the shops is metallic flash tattoos. These tattoos are made to look like jewelry, so you are sure to stand out. They are very popular for a vacation in the sun, and the best thing is, they are only temporary!

Since you started your day shopping at Southern Market, it is time to stroll over to elle boutique to complete your day dedicated to summertime. This little boutique is sure to turn your head and help you complete your summer wardrobe. They say their summer styles are in full force and we could not agree more! New in store are weekender tote bags, glass-bead jewelry, and silky summer tanks. Who wouldn’t want to add those items to the list when packing for a get-away this summer? If sales are your best friend, then make your way back over to elle boutique every Saturday in June for their Saturday Specials!
