Looking for free things to do in Washington, D. C. this weekend? One of my favorite activities to do in the winter is to visit the Smithsonian Museums. I’d recommend the National Archives, which is running a great exhibit on the Vietnam War now until 6 January 2019.
I wore this high-waisted, pleated midi skirt that I found in a thrift store a few years ago, but it’s been a repeat favorite over the years. It’s a classic shape that will never go out of style. I’m glad high-waisted remains a fall fashion trend for 2018.
I’ve paired it with one of my favorite patterns – stripes! This striped sweater is slightly oversized, but the high-waisted skirt keeps the outline of my outfit flattering overall.
If you are going to the Smithsonian Museums, be sure to wear comfortable flats. These are Anthropologie shoes from a couple seasons ago, but they are very comfortable and have good support.
