Monica, Mary, Me
Back in May I headed down to D.C. for an event with Tuckernuck and Persifor. It actually worked out perfectly in regard to timing. One of my best friends, Lauren (in Snapchat photo above), lives in D.C. and was coming to Pittsburgh the following day for a wedding and was staying with me. So I went to D.C. on Thursday to stay with her and we drove back to Pittsburgh Friday morning!
I just love the D.C. area. If you are new to Summer Wind, I went to James Madison University in Virginia, so I visited D.C. a lot and so many of my college friends live in that area. My parents, sister and I also have a tradition of visiting around Christmastime. My dad lived in D.C. for a short while before meeting my mom and my aunt and uncle also lived in D.C. My parents got engaged in front of the Capital Christmas Tree, so it really does hold a special place in my heart. Any chance to visit is welcome in my book!
It was so much fun spending the evening at the Tuckernuck store. It's located in Georgetown and might be one of the most beautiful retail spaces ever. It's more of an experience than walking into your typical store. It's so beautifully decorated. The entire space reminds me of being on a sailboat by the water. It's refreshing and very carefully curated.
It was also really amazing to meet, Alex, the woman behind Persifor as well as all of the ladies who make Tuckernuck such a big success! Not to mention, it was lovely meeting some of you who live in the area and stopped by! I also met fellow bloggers, Monica and Mary who are local to the area. They both showed up in their Persifor best and Monica and I matched!
Besides the gorgeous, colorful prints, my favorite thing about Persifor is that the fabrics are so comfortable and don't wrinkle. The pieces are meant for an active, well-traveled lifestyle. They're easily packable and the fabric is so soft with stretch for a perfect fit. I wore the Capri Riviera Dress which is definitely my favorite print of the season. The scooped ballet-style neckline is also very flattering. Persifor runs true to size, I am wearing a size small!
To say Tuckernuck is one of my favorite brands would be an understatement. I love each and every piece. Everything is carefully curated and I can't get enough! I check the site at least once a week to see all of the great pieces they add. To see my current favorites, scroll through the widget above.
After the event, Lauren and I headed to J. Paul's to grab a quick bite to eat and then headed back to her apartment to rest up. The next morning I woke up early, grabbed a Starbucks and headed to meet some Tuckernuck ladies for breakfast at the cutest little cafe, Kafe Leopold. If you are in D.C., definitely check this place out. It was hot and sunny, so we enjoyed breakfast out on their cute patio!
