15 Fun Things To Do in Williamsburg

As a 10 year resident, (Wow! Time Flies) I have seen Williamsburg from the start of the 07'-08' recession when all building stopped. New Town was in its early stages and if you wanted to shop Michael's or Home Goods, you had to drive to Newport News. Target at Monticello (and I pronounce it Monta-chello not Monti-cello if you are wondering) was pretty new and Starbucks was where the Duck Donuts is now.

I could never claim I have been here forever, my accent would tell you that, but I have been around long enough to be able to give you some great advice on my top 15 Fun Things To Do in Williamsburg.

In No Particular Order--- I would love to know how you would put these in order! Do them and tell me!

Talking Style

Today around the time Douglas came home from school, I was just back from a lunch at Opus where my mom and I treated a good friend to a belated lunch date and a quick stop at a new outlet in town. While unpacking a few finds from the store and hanging them in my closet I figured the time was right to clean out some of the junk that has been hiding in there for a bit. 

The time has come again in my fashion world where I hate everything I have bought in the past year. Everything is too ModClothy, to Ruchey... too colorful. I am in a black and white stage in my life right now with a hint of pastel pink. Is it the weather outside or the pudge I feel around my stomach from quitting smoking almost a year ago? I am not sure but at this point I am telling everyone I am only buying black and white at this point. This goes for clothes only and not jeans. I still love dark blue denim. Accessories can be other colors but mostly sticking with just black and white for awhile with a punch of pale pink when I feel the need. 

How about you? Are you in a style rut right now or are you happy with your closet? I am loving these right now.
