DC has a lot of traditions.
I sometimes joke that’s probably because of the high concentration of UVA grads like myself living in or near its borders. And at UVA, if you do anything twice, it’s immortalized as tradition.
But anyway, back to DC and its traditions. Kickball on the mall. Late night at Ben’s Chili Bowl. Zoo Lights around Christmas. But one of my favorite traditions is one I don’t even take part in: on a Thursday during the summer, some Senators on the Hill wear seersucker suits to work.
Trust me, there is no better way to stand out in the sea of gray and blue on the metro than with a linen seersucker suit.
So even though I don’t work on the Hill—I thought I’d jump in on this fun summer tradition. And thankfully, I found a way to do it without having to buy a seersucker suit.
How, you ask? With this Shop Memento koozie and tote bag, monogrammed to perfection, I was able to embrace the DC seersucker tradition this summer without sacrificing my personal style. I was born in the south, after all.
If you know me at all, you know I love Diet Mountain Dew. We all have our vices, and this one is mine, big time. So whether I’m hanging by the pool or running errands, this monogrammed koozie does the trick at keeping my favorite nice and cold.
And last week while I was at the beach with my family, it made it really easy to pick my Blue Moon out of the pack thanks to the monogram.
(For those of you that don’t know, my middle name is Teal…hence the blog name!)
This monogrammed seersucker tote also has come in handy this summer hauling my stuff to and from my apartment pool, and carrying the plethora of books I read at the beach.
Even though summer is (sadly) winding down, since Memento Boutique can monogram just about anything—seersucker or not—they’re a great place to check out if you need bridesmaid gifts, bachelorette party supplies, or just something for yourself. Ain’t nothing wrong with that!
