December in Northern Virginia


Late fall and early winter in the DC area makes for great outdoor time!

While temps are chilly in the morning and evening, the days are pretty mild. (Update: today we got our first winter arctic blast!)

Recently, my husband and I headed to Great Falls, Maryland to hike the Billy Goat Trail. The sky and scenery was beautiful, and I’m so glad we got to experience it before our proper winter arrives (which apparently it has!)


For the hike, I threw on this zip high neck sweater from Zara, my Lysee denim leggings from Nordstrom, and comfy Vasque Talus Treks. Both the sweater and leggings are still available! The sweater is so cozy and I like how it’s sporty but could be versatile for other looks too. These leggings are so flattering- the denim material is thick and offers a lot of coverage so you don’t feel like you’re wearing gym leggings out somewhere. They are offered in different colors too.hiking-outfit view zara-sweater vasque-boots

How’s the weather where you are? I already see snow storms and blizzards on the news!

  1. These photos are absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking! I’ve only ever passed through Virginia, I’ve never visited before, I have to especially this time of year, it looks so beautiful! It’s pretty cold here in CT, it snowed a little yesterday and to be honest, I’m not ready for more! It can be so annoying to navigate around. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead!




    1. Jalisa! I can’t believe you already got snow… I know what you mean by not wanting more. A little bit is pretty, but when it gets packed in and dirty… ugh! No thanks!


  2. I can’t believe you look this cute on a hike! I love hiking and outdoor adventures and look forward to picking up again when my boys are a little older (they’re impossible right now). I love the views showing the pretty fall foliage. That’s what I miss most about living on the east coast. The beauty of the seasons! Wish you a happy holiday season lovely!

    Love, Liz
