Ever just need a few hours to take a break from the city’s hustle? Even if you just rolled your eyes & said, “No” in your head, I know you’re a liar pants & could use a little TLC every once in awhile. I’m not talking a full on Hamptons break – I’m talking day trip. How about a little fab dining & even better shopping in a magical gem of a newly developed area in Northern Virginia that people are still finding out about. That’s right, folks. No tourists, no lines, no getting stuck behind five people walking shoulder to shoulder on the sidewalk. Sigh. You should have to go through oritentation to come to this city…
I first discovered Mosaic by attending one of the most epic South Moon Under events that featured my ultimate blogger crush, Emily Schuman. After meeting Emily, I died a little & then realized there was far too much good shopping to go uncovered in the area. Upon finding the nearby Langford Market, I snapped back to reality rather quickly. I recently went back to Langford to stock up on a few Fall staples as their selection is super diverse & the price points are reasonable. I also may or may not have snagged a few baubles to sport during Fashion Week. I’m telling you – go. hit. up. Langord. Market. You won’t regret it. Other retail therapy favorites in the area are Alex & Ani, Neiman’s Last Call, Lou Lou, SMU, & Anthro.
I also discovered new every-meal-for-the-rest-of-my-life favorite, Cava Mezze Grill. I hear there’s also a restaurant. I’m on it. Where do I even begin with Cava? The set up is Chipotle-style so I fell in love at first sight. Add your sauces to saffron rice, throw in a little braised lamb, falafel & top it off with crazy feta & cucumbers & tomatoes. I told you. Obsession. There’s also a Noodles & Company. & a Matchbox. & a Taylor. & a Dolcezza Gelato. I mean, stop it with these insanely delicious food choices. This is where diets go to die.
