Tomboy Accessories

How do you define your style? This week it is all about accessories and how different pieces can say a lot about your style. Jane Birkin and Jean Shrimpton show off their simple tomboy look with white button downs, masculine bags and simple shoes.

Washington D.C.

After traveling around to different cities over the week, it’s time to make our way home to Washington D.C.  SCOUT’s HQ is located in the historic D.C. neighborhood, Georgetown! To give you the best of D.C. we asked some of our Washington native employees what their favorite things are to do in the summer.

DC 1

1. Caroline Herrera dress  2. Stella McCartney sunglasses  3. Dolce & Gabbana pumps  4. SCOUT Miss Manors in Blackout Scout

Visit the Omni Shoreham Hotel pool or make a splash in the Georgetown Waterfront fountain to cool off in the humid summer days. Grab a picnic dinner and some lawn chairs for Screen on the Green on the National Mall. Lemonade from Founding Farmers is a favorite way to stay hydrated, and Kafe Leopold or Blue Duck Tavern are the perfect outdoor lunch spots.  Two of our SCOUT girls, Caroline and Megan, are seen enjoying some of their favorite summer spots!

DC 2

5. Dolce & Gabbana 3-piece  6. SCOUT BJ bag in Coral Dilemma  7. Marc by Marc Jacobs watch  8. Gianvito Rossi pumps

Make sure to stick to florals and bright colors to match the D.C. summer flair!
