Gold + Leather

 Hey peeps! How was your weekend? I definitely got caught up on sleep, that's for sure! In between snoozing I made it out to see my friend's incredible chalk art along with many other masterpieces at a fun "Chalk the Block" event and visited the state fair with Jody and her Hubby. We munched on some yummy fair food, swooned over a baby calf who drooled all over me and found out both our hubbies are deathly afraid of snakes when we wandered into the reptile exhibit. I swear every time we hang out we discover something else they have in common, they're like the same person!! We had such a fun night even though we never got to ride the ferris wheel because of the huge line. Such a bummer. But it's always good to see my bestie! This outfit is what I wore for a lazy Sunday of coffee and Netflix. No shame. The only reason I got dressed was for the brief visit we made to my in-laws. Leggings + a long tee + lots of gold jewelry = a perfect Sunday look. Sundays are the best. We need more of them, don't you think?

I can't believe it's Friday already! I've been a crappy blogger this week.. oops! But I did get the opportunity to do a couple shoots this week and go to a fancy dinner with my girls, so it's been a good week! Hopefully it'll be a fun weekend too. Me and the hubby already got a head start last night watching his favorite band play for the second time this year, he was in heaven! Now I just need a good concert to drag him to ;) I can't remember if I mentioned it but my amazing sister did this balayage on my hair recently and I can't get enough of it!! It's nice to have a fun change for Fall and it turned out soo good! Seriously if you're in the area Kaity is the best at color!! Also I'm still so obsessed with this hat. I found it at the Vans store a couple years ago while waiting for Ethan to try on shoes! Such a random place to find a good hat but I'm glad I happened upon it! I'm still on the hunt for a couple cute new ones this year but no luck finding anything super affordable yet. Any suggestions? Have an awesome weekend! I'll see you all on Monday.

Pink Shift

Hey there! Another Monday. And I'm not even mad about it. I have some fun things planned this week and the fact that I got new hair, pool time and some love from my sister's adorable new puppy this weekend makes it that much better! With my mom gone Sundays just haven't been the same, but yesterday my Aunt had us over for a yummy homemade meal and let us swim in her pool. We finished the night curled up on the couch with ice cream watching Jumanji on netflix. It felt like home. Sometimes theres nothing better than family time! I'm loving this shift dress I snatched off the sale rack at Zara on our Vegas girl's trip! I wish someone would throw a 20's party so I could dress it up with this tassel necklace and a fancy hairpiece...maybe some gloves...haha! It would be perfect for that. I love the loose hang of it. The ruffled sleeves and the pretty gold beading on the shoulders are what made me fall in love with it! Hope your week is off to a good start! My first to-do when I get off work is a nice long nap!

Swiss Days

Happy Friday!! And it's the last day of my juice cleanse I've been doing! Woot! I'm going out tonight with some girlfriends and I can't wait to eat real food again! Haha. Liquid diets are not my thing. I always get light headed, but I wanted to do a cleanse after all the junk I've been eating and to get kind of a kick-start on eating healthy again! So I'm going to restrain from eating all the bread at the restaurant tonight haha. Speaking of yummy food, that pizza above was divine. I finally got a chance to drive out to Midway for Swiss Days last weekend. I brought Meagan along and we found this cute little restaurant that was awarded best pizza in the state so we had to try it! SO good. We also had fun looking down the many rows of booths filled with crafts and clothes and art of all kinds! It was actually a bit overwhelming how many booths there were! My favorite part was probably just talking on the long drive over and back, it was good to catch up with her and have a girl's day while my Hubby was at work. She was sweet enough to take some pics of my outfit too! I just found this lace kimono and I love how I can throw it on over a simple tee and shorts and make it a bit more stylish. I just got this tee at the Madewell opening last week and it's seriously the perfect V-neck, I'm sure I'll be wearing it tons! Plus they were giving out these totes for free! It was perfect for carrying everything at the craft fair.

Crop It

So here's what I wore on Labor Day! I think I subconsciously paired a crop top with cropped pants because I'm dreading the day it's too cold to wear my Summer clothes. Don't get me wrong, Fall is my other favorite season -along with Summer- but it feels like it always fades into Winter super fast and, I just can't with Winter. I'm loving this embossed crop top though! I wish I got a better picture of the detail. It has a pretty floral pattern and it's thick too, so it'll be perfect for that transitioning time. I just rediscovered these pants in the depths of my drawers the other day. It's been so long since I've worn them! I've had them forever and they're soo comfy!! I love the grey-lavender color too! I can't believe it's almost the weekend again, I love this 4 day week thing - wish it was permanent! Have a good Thursday :)

 Hope you all had a fun and labor-free Labor Day! ;) We slept in, had a little family time and ended the night with redbox and chips and salsa (our favorite snack!) It was pretty perfect. I feel like we got two Sundays in a row! It was a very needed weekend after a hectic week. This past week my parents packed up the house they've lived in for the past twelve years and moved across the country to Alabama where my Dad has been commuting for work. I spent most of the week hauling out boxes of my old things and furniture I'd been storing there and soaking up the last of our time together before the big move (So, sorry about the silence here lately). It was pretty hard (and tearful) saying goodbye to my Mom, I'll miss her so much!! We've always been super close and this is the first time we won't be in the same state! It'll definitely be an adjustment but hopefully we'll get to visit a lot! We've already planned a trip out there for Thanksgiving! I have to admit I'm a little jealous they'll be living in all that green and humidity - which I actually love - again. We lived in Georgia for a few years when I was a little girl and I remember it fondly. Now if it was just a bit closer to the ocean I'd consider it the perfect place to live ;) Hope you all had a less stressful week than me, and hey, tomorrow is hump day already!
P.S. This dress is one of my Vegas finds! It was on the sale rack at Topshop so of course I HAD to have it! Plus our waitress asked if it was Free People so... woot!!
