The Instagram Guide to D.C. - SHAW

Instagram Guide to DC (Little Leaf)

Welcome to the first Instagram Guide to D.C.

I'm so excited to finally release this project! I've teamed up with local creatives Julien of and Erin of to bring you to the best (& most Instagram-worthy) spots in DC. Today, we're taking you around to our favorites in the Shaw area of northwest DC.


Little Leaf Shop in Shaw, DC (Instagram Guide to DC)

I can't turn down shopping for home decor, and I've found a new obsession in Shaw's Little Leaf, a shop specializing in plants & paper. Little Leaf presents the perfect selection of cacti, hanging plants, and succulents alongside stationary, decor, and other home trinkets. Their decor is minimalistic - dark industrial piping, lots of bare wooden boards, a cute black & white tiled floor - and everything covered in plants. I could have wandered around their shop for hours.

Of course, no day is complete without coffee, so before we made our way over to Little Leaf, we stopped into La Colombe. Check out Erin's post to see more of what we did there - and why it made our insta-worthy list.

Our last stop was Le Labo, an indie perfume shop with some seriously moody & gorgeous decor. Their most popular fragrance is "Santal", a beautifully smokey, floral scent. To hear more about Le Labo and our time there, check out Julien's post. I'm stopping by their store every time I'm in the area now.
