Three days in Richmond, VA

I don't know what I expected Virginia to be like, but I have to say it far surpassed my expectations. The weather, history, and abundance of colorful buildings made my trip for work last week all the better. 

I was most excited to say goodbye to the rain and cold back home in exchange for sun and 80 degree temps. 

OOTD. Hot pink for a bright, hot day.

One of the things that surprised me the most about Richmond is how colorful all of the buildings are. I literally couldn't stop staring at all the bright doors. And I may have a found several houses that I could totally see myself living in...if they weren't a couple million dollars. 

Not a bad backdrop for dinner. The James River and Richmond skyline. 

And no trip is complete without food. Conch is set right on the water and both my crab cake and She Crab soup were delicious. They also had a live band playing which added to the already perfect atmosphere. 

For a special treat we stopped into Carytown Cupcakes and it was not an easy choice but I ultimately decided upon the classic red velvet.

Our last meal before heading to the airport was my favorite of the entire trip. The Daily strives to use ingredients that are organic and locally grown, and you that's reflected in the quality of their food. My thai chicken pizza was cooked perfectly including the homemade crust. My mouth is watering as I type this. We also tried their spinach dip appetizer and unlike most spinach dips, it was purreed resulting in a smooth creamy dip. Can you tell I loved this place?

Until next time Virginia.
