Weekend Recap || Hitting The Reset Button

(Saturday evening salty dogs….)

We hit the reset button this past weekend, and it felt so good. We grabbed take-out Friday evening, and resumed our tradition of a little vino and John Mayer Pandora station…. and then woke up early for a morning spin class and brunch. There wasn’t anything on the agenda, so the rest of the weekend was spent lounging by the pool (tiring little miss out), bbq-ing, and sipping a few libations. We reconnected with family. Cleaned the house. Ate clean and slept in our own beds. Literally putting us back on track.

So, while the weekend wasn’t anything extraordinarily memorable, it was necessary. Reconnecting with loved ones, returning to routine, and getting life organized pulls me back to my roots and helps me feel centered…. which is exactly how I feel as I head into the week ahead. Everything is in line, and now, we just take what the week brings…. tantrums and curve balls included.  Have a good one friends! xx

(Summer whites for an evening sipping libations…. tank, shorts, cardigan)

(Family pool day, followed by little miss’ first ever top knot.)

(Someone thought the 6:30am wake-up call was funny…. lounge shorts, lounge pullover)

 We spent most of this weekend outside bbq-ing, and one of my favorite meals included these salmon burgers. I wrapped mine in butter lettuce, and topped it with avocado. So light and delicious. For the week ahead, I plan on making salsa verde shredded chicken… will share the recipe this Wednesday.

A few items I purchased over this weekend include this cute bell sleeve thermal (can’t wait to wear it with cut-offs now and layered later), lace inset cami, lace flutter sleeve tank (both black and white…. and super cute worn backwards), twist back open sweater, and these casual overalls (not sure how they will look, but I have a few thoughts in mind for styling… so we will see). Also, my favorite oversized floral sweatshirt, and open back blush pullover are both back in stock and great everyday basics for a cool summer night or fall day. I also snagged this gauzy stripe button-up for warm summer days. I also think this thermal top has such pretty detailing on the sleeves, and this ruffle off the shoulder top is super cute for a date night!

I am currently looking for a basic black dress that will transition me through fall and have my eye on this slip dress and this blouson sleeved maxi dress. I think it’s a great closet staple to have, and mine is currently lacking one!

We still have a few warm weather getaways on the calendar for the end of summer and fall…. so, I’m not yet filling the wardrobe up with all cool weather pieces. I am absolutely loving this pink bathing suit, as well as this cut-out option…. and the print of this maxi dress, and this shorter version, is so fun for the end of summer…. and sipping a few libations. I also think the color of this ruffle sleeve dress is gorgeous… a great dress for day or night. This button down polka dot top would be adorable with cut-offs and I’ve had my eye on it for a while now. I also think this stripe romper and embroidered maxi dress are gorgeous!
