Weekend Recap || Getting It Done + A Few Good Sales

(Spring things in CA)

For having no plans this weekend, we certainly made the most out of it…. from a Saturday morning spin + breakfast date with TJ, to backyard fun with Harper…. tasting good wines + bar-b-queing… to quality family time…. we pretty much filled every waking, free, moment. I feel no matter how hard I try to do “nothing” it just doesn’t happen. Yet, I usually can’t complain…. it’s typically these types of weekends were the most memories are made. When there is nothing planned, and most of it is spontaneous…. those small moments that happen seem to stick with you for a while…

Yet, often around this time on Sunday evenings (it’s about 9pm as I write this….) a small sense of apprehension falls over me as I begin to make a mental note and jot down my to-do list for the week…. how will it all get done with a firecracker of a toddler in tow?? Then, I stumbled across this quote… “Some days, she has no idea how she’ll do it. But every single day, it still gets done.” So often, I find myself bogged down by all that needs to get done… and sometimes that thought paralyzes me. Yet, I’ve always found that the best way to get anything done is to simply start (duh, right???). Little by little the list dwindles, and little by little there’s a sense of empowerment that “Yes, I’m going to get this –it done.” So, as I go into this week ahead, I’m keeping that quote in the front of my mind…. that no matter how big the day seems, just starting it, tackling it bit by bit, will get the job done.

Have a good week friends! xx

I made a batch of these pancakes (from last week) for the week ahead, since they were such a hit last time around! I also incorporated these workout bands into my leg-day workout…. #GameChangers. I’m working on some tasty fish tacos for this week, so stay tuned.

Over the weekend, I noticed that some of my favorite items are currently on sale. This ruffle, open back tank, is under $40 (also available here on sale with code FRIENDS). I love wearing it by itself with this bralette, or with this cardigan (which is also one major sale!). My new favorite jeans are also currently 25% off (with code FRIENDS)… making them an excellent price! This spring perfect stripe top (which I wear all the time) is 50% off (making it $20…. for an excellent quality top!). I own this v-neck sweater in slate, but it’s now on sale in 3 color options… love it paired with cut-offs! A few other favorites that are on sale include this simple and practical white cold shoulder top (comes in blush too), and this one shoulder chambray top (so so soft). I also bought this tank, in white, over the weekend and love it… there are several different color options, and it’s such a great throw on and go piece for $15 (I might have to snag it in the black + grey)!

I also stumbled across this oatmeal colored lace-up sweater and think it’s a great option for those mild spring temperatures. I wore it on Friday paired with my favorite cut-offs. We have a pretty casual week planned ahead, so I’ll be living in this grey babydoll tee, cold shoulder top, striped tank, and adorable ruffle sleeve henley (love!). I also purchased this blush + white striped button-up… I plan on wearing with with jeans + cut-offs… front tucked or front tied… or even unbuttoned over a bathing suit (one piece please….). A few items that are sitting in my shopping cart include this adorable white fringed + lace top (such a great price too!), white + charcoal pinstripe bell sleeve top, and this mauve colored bell sleeve top.

Annnnd, since cabo has been booked (So. Excited.) I have my eye on a few resort friendly options… especially this white one piece, lace trim caftan (in rose, but so many different color options), this billowy off the shoulder top (love love love), open knit sweater, and this stripe tie top. I also love these knotted sandals in canary.
