We were visiting my in-laws last week and the Mr. and I took a much needed day trip to spend some time alone. Besides, Little M adores his grandparents, I don’t even think he knew we were gone!
On Sunday we drove to Richmond, the capital of Virginia. I know that it was named after our dear Richmond in England but I wasn’t prepared to see such similarities in the scenery. The likeness is just uncanny. I hadn’t been there in years, and to be honest I didn’t remember it much.
The small Southern city-town central area is full of character, and I loved the seeing the old houses and flats, the brick sidewalks and buildings along the “high street” that is Carytown.
It’s not called a “Mile of Style” for nothing. There are a variety of shops, boutiques and restaurants along Cary Street and they were all willing me to visit them.I hit a few boutiques including one called EuroTrash.
Despite the unfortunate name, they carried some of my fave brands that I shopped in London such as Desigual, Ted Baker and Yumi and wouldn’t you now it, they were playing Girls Aloud on full blast. Tee hee.
I am not a fan of all new developments and houses, I like things with a bit of history and character and Richmond didn’t disappoint. What really made it fun was all the color up and down the main street.
The Mr. and I took lots of photos (but he didn’t want to be featured) and my green jeans looked great against the orange, yellow and pink walls!
