Happy Friday! This week has been so long and not very fun. It’s really a miracle I’ve made it out alive! Here are 5 things that have gotten me through the week (and taken me straight to one of the most beautiful things ever – a 3 day weekend)!
4- Dean and I cut cable when we moved so I haven’t been able to keep up with my favorite sport at my favorite time of the year – playoff hockey. Even thought I couldn’t watch it, The New York Rangers winning yesterday’s game still made me do a little happy dance.
5- Allegra was really really really cute yesterday. (And really really really terrible this morning.) I have the cutest picture everrrr but it just won’t load. Rest assured I will post it later. Let’s be real, I’m too much of a proud mom not to.
Edit: For your viewing pleasure.
What are you guys doing for Memorial Day weekend?
Wearing a similar outfit to any that I posted yesterday?
What’s your favorite part about a 3 day weekend?
I’m not sure how spring managed to come and go so quickly (and give me allergies but no warm weather), but this weekend is already Memorial Day Weekend (aka MDW). My dad is coming in from Florida so I’m excited for a nice low-key weekend but I know every year is definitely. I love any day that allows me to dress up in America colors (remember this day? We actually did it multiple times.) so I obviously can’t let the weekend pass by without creating a few outfit ideas. Here’s 3 different plans. Hopefully one will fit your weekend!
Option 1- heading to the beach
First off, if your plans involve the beach please don’t tell me. I grew up down the block from the beach and I miss it dearly. Please jump in the cold, cold, ocean for me. Also, don’t forget the sunblock and a water bottle!
This is probably what I’ll be doing to celebrate the long weekend. I always love a BBQ and I love that this look is full of things I already own. A striped shirt and shorts with brown accessories? I got this.
I don’t feel the need to get all gussied up for this kind of holiday, but if I’m seeing some extended family I might choose to wear something a little more put together than the typical BBQ shorts. I like the idea of staying comfy and stylish with a chambray dress.
It’s supposed to rain here this weekend so I’m a little nervous about what the weather will be like my Monday. If by some chance it’s chillier, I’m going to go with the white pant option. I just bought white pants (although red would be cool too) and I’ve been dying to wear them in a fun way. Don’t judge this outfit based on the cost of all of these polyvore items, I’ve found cheap versions of all these items at marshalls/TJ!
You may remember this post where I let you all in on my little lady cave dilemma I need a space for my clothing and I need a space to do work, but I only have one teeny-tiny location to do both. I asked you guys for some advice and I decided (as most stubborn ladies would) to try my darnedest to make both of these things happen.
Since this room is completely mine, the decisions and purchasing and placement are all my decision. It’s pretty darn nice because I’m able to get things done on my schedule instead of around the schedule Dean and I have together and I think I’m moving at a pretty decent pace. In order to keep myself on said pace, I thought I’d go all YHL on you and give you some updates as I go.
Please note that I love you, but I did not clean the room for you.
I would have… but there is nowhere for this stuff to go yet.
The bottom picture is what you see when you walk in. Behind the door to your left is a window that lights up the whole room (when the door is closed, of course). The first picture is to show you the little bookshelf I had changed the backing on last summer. The plan is to have the top two shelves filled with makeup and accessories.. the bottom may house shoes and or bags. I also may revamp the backing depending on the rest of the project. So the goals:
Goals: put together wardrobe paint room (light blue, light grey? what do you think?)
new curtain add a cute desk (just made purchase! Fingers crossed it fits nicely) find a dirty laundry hiding place? get clothes organized (all done inside the Ikea wardrobe)
get makeup/accessories organized
buy a nice area rug
hang art (already have some ideas here)
and of course throw in some finishing touches
and while we are on the topic of getting things done… can someone please teach me how to make Allegra stop pulling at all of our curtains!
Hanging out on the back of the couch, between the curtains and our window seems to be her new favorite activity and I’m not lovin’ it. Thanks in advance!
PS- see a very short -yet still embarrassing- video of Allegra in action here: ouch
