Weekend Recap // What A Difference A Week Makes

{Weekend exploring with this little gal (sweatshirt)}

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend, and at the beginning of this week, we played hibernation. Hiding out from the rain, being lazy, not doing much for fear of being drenched in the storms… also, nursing a cold, and feeling under the weather for most of the weekend…. fast forward 7 days later to temperatures in the high 70’s, cold free (everyone!), and a weekend spent exploring….

I was actually quite proud of myself this weekend. I’m not one for spontaneous, spur of the moment decisions (much more of a planner since having little miss)…. but when TJ and I went to bed on Friday evening, we decided to wake up Saturday morning and see what sounded fun. When our alarm went off (aka Harper), we decided workouts were a must (I headed out for a 6 mile run… the longest in many months), and when I returned, we decided that after little miss’ morning nap we’d head up to LA for brunch and the afternoon. We took off without a plan, made one up on the drive, and it couldn’t have been more fun (minus the obscene amount of traffic on the drive home)….

And, so, given how much can change in a week, and the adventures that can come when we welcome a little spontaneity into our lives, I go into this week looking forward to what changes it may bring! Hope you all have a great one!

For the next week or so, we’re expecting pretty mild weather… mid-70’s… which is a nice change from the cooler temps we had for a few weeks. Of course, this weather gets me thinking of warmer weather clothing. I still had some birthday money left over (not sure how that happened….) and snagged this gorgeous open knit pullover…. and thinking about this crystal cuff or this crystal bracelet as simple pieces to dress up my everyday basics….

And, speaking of basics, since I think you can never have too many, I currently have this front tie white tee, ribbed henley (in grey), open shoulder white tee, striped popover top, and basic black tank in my cart. I also love this loose fitting grey tank… such a perfect layering option. This open shoulder pullover, which comes in so many color combinations, is also a great transitional piece and perfect for everyday living. I’m also thinking this sleeveless sweater would be great paired under a suede jacket now… and alone in the warmer months…..

 I have my eye on this shorts/ribbed henley set (don’t know if I like the black or grey option better)… and these color block leggings, pink hooded pullover, and long sleeve top for working out…. I’ve been enjoying longer runs as of late and these items would be perfect.

I’m also in the market for a new pair of jeans… I haven’t bought a pair since before Harper was born! I’m currently looking at this high-waisted, raw hem pair, this classic high-waisted option, and this lighter wash girlfriend jean. And, I’m looking to pair them with some cute slides in warmer weather…. I’m loving this rose gold sandal, espadrille slide, and cognac colored kitten heel slide.

Two items I’m loving for little miss right now are this striped dress and peplum zip up jacket. Both are just so cute.
