Saturday and Sunday were our much-anticipated trip to Washington, D.C. for the national pub trivia tournament with Ri-Ra Irish Pub.  We won the local 8-week competition and so were flown to Washington, D.C. and put up in a hotel, treated to free drinks and food and given the chance to compete with 10 other teams for a trip to Ireland!  Sadly, we finished fourth, but it was a lot of fun nonetheless.

Naturally, our camera battery died about two hours into the trip (in Reagan airport, even), so I was reduced to Blackberry photos and recreating what I wore at home. 


This was my traveling outfit for the plane ride and Saturday afternoon—shorts and a tank for the 90+ temps and a blazer for the inevitably chilly aircraft, plus flat sandals for walking.

Saturday night, for the actual tournament I wore this.  Packing with only thirty items to choose from, including only a few I hadn’t worn yet, took about three seconds and I KNEW I couldn’t spend any money, so I didn’t even bother to shop in D.C.  Looks like this remix is already paying off.

For your viewing pleasure, here are some crappy Blackberry photos as well…

Let’s compare Saturday afternoon en route to D.C., full of confidence…


…to Saturday night, mid-way through the tourney when things began to look bleak.   Good times. :)DC Pics 013 IMG00040-20100718-1035IMG00041-20100718-1036      IMG00045-20100718-1115IMG00042-20100718-1044IMG00051-20100718-1329 IMG00049-20100718-1215

  1. LOVE the blazers with shorts look. I've never even considered that one before, but it looks amazing.
