I must say, for a city, DC (and Arlington) are really killing it with the flower fields. I would have never expected to find essentially what was a field of daffodils in the middle of a city, or a field of tulips just outside of one. Not having a car in DC not only makes it difficult at times to get around, but more difficult to happen upon cool spots. If I had not been driving, I never would’ve found the daffodils and if I had not been driving around with my cousin a couple of weekends ago, I never would’ve known where these tulips were! For reference, they are located between the Iwo Jima Memorial and Arlington Cemetery, just beneath that giant tower on the hill. Because there isn’t a place to park anymore, I metro-ed to Rosslyn and walked about ten minutes from there.
Because it was a warm, spring day, I chose to wear this fun, ruffled skirt with the cutest black gingham print. I paired it with a plain ruffled black top, and practical white sneakers that completely didn’t match. The grass around the tulips was wet so I didn’t bother to put my black glitter slides on, and ended up turning my white shoes brown! Wish me luck with washing them later… 😳
