Yesterday and Today : Seing double

Yesteday was the 8th Anniversary of my BookClub - The EbonyBookworms. Usually we would travel to some locale for relaxation, fun and ofcourse dining. This year, we decided to just have a nice brunch in Washington, DC at a place called Tony and Joe's. They havs an excellent brunch and the resturaunt is located on the banks of the Potomac River. So the scenery was very nice. Although the weather did not permit, there are even tables where you can sit outside and enjoy the weather as you dine. Instead of a big trip this year, we decided to save up our dues and travel to a really nice place for our 10th Anniversary in two years.
Yesterday's Look
Pink shift dress - OneStopPlus
Pink paisley cardi - Macys
Belt - Torrid
Flats - Macys

We carpooled to brunch, and there are a few pics that we took before we left for DC. Pictures above is Debbie (wearing a yellow tweed suit from Ashley Stewart) and Jackie (wearing creme slacks and a pink tweed jacket). I had to tell them both that they were looking very Jackie O.

We all arrived at the resturant after some botched directions. Sometimes those navigation systems can get it all wrong. But we all eventually found the place, and what a treat did we find. The views, the food, the atmosphere were all perfect for a Sunday Brunch with the BookClub! Since the weather did not permit, we all vowed to come back when we could sit out on the deck and enjoy our brunch.
The gangs all here! Including my "little sweetie," Symmone. She and I were dressed in the same colors and she was just too too tickled by that. Pictured above from left to right are:
Dawn (little sweetie's mom, wearing a black and white dress), Jackie, Me, Gia (wearing a black silk ruffle top and black slacks), Debbie, Lyndell (wearing a one piece dress, with a shiny black top and black knit bottom), and Nicole (in her casual look, wearing a teal sweater vest, grey long sleeve tee and jeans).
And then TODAY! .. Sadly I am at work on my day off. I usually have off on Monday and I work 10 hr days the rest of the week. But I had a meeting to attend today, so I had to make it in. One good thing is that I only have to stay half a day today (until noon) because I worked half a day on Friday.
But as you can see, the outfit is pretty similar to yesterday. I really liked this sweater, so I just threw it on again.. and I pulled my hair back into a ponytail, but maybe I will wear it down tomorrow. When I went to the wedding on saturday, no one knew who I was. So I figured I would eases this new hair style slowly onto my coworkers, lol!
No need for a description of today's outfit. Its just the cardi and black pants, oh, and a pink ruffle button up. I really wanted to wear this cardi on my vacation to Memphis this week, but since I have had it on for 2 days, I guess I can find something else to wear. I am thinking I will stop past OldNavy tonight cuz I am really feeling their artsy cardi, which are on sale this week. So Imma go see what they have.

I love the whole outfit. Fuschia/Rasberry has been my fave color lately!!!

That color looks so great on you- you always wear such bright jewel tones and I love it!

You didn't tell us what type of books you all read in your club, though! I used to run a book club, but it only lasted about a year. When I moved to PA I tried to join one, but it ended up being more about the restaurant than the book! Lol
