What I Wore: For a Perfect Weekend
What I Wore: Skirt (Hell Bunny), Shirt (Popbasic; Similar Here), Necklace (local boutique; Similar Here), Bracelet (Popbasic; Similar Here), Shoes (Loly in the Sky)
I have been daydreaming of this combination of clothing since last spring when this skirt first came into my life. But then it got hot. And then it got busy. So... this is the first time I've actually been able to wear it. There is something very satisfying in an outfit coming together as you envisioned, but I'm sure it's just preaching to the choir to tell you this. It was actually cold enough for me to have to exchange the skirt for jeans for a bit on Saturday, but once it warmed up in the afternoon, I was right back in this floral beauty. It's a statement piece for sure, but considering the number of times it has been on the blog- and how that is just fraction of how often I wear it- it just goes to show that you will use what you love.
Anyway, wearing this look left me with a feeling of a certain... je ne sais quoi. But it felt perfect for a perfectly good weekend. We got out of town to have Adventures on Saturday- complete with brunch at our very favorite cafe. It was crowded enough that despite the said chill in the air, we had to eat outside and, though neither I nor the Boy ordered the Elvis-inspired PB&J French toast, the food was just as delicious as remembered. We shopped (I got several things from The List! And, boy, does that list make it so much easier to know if an item is what I want or not), and wandered bookstores, and generally just did as we pleased. Then on Sunday it was quite the opposite. I never even stirred from the house. We cleaned and worked and put life back in order for the coming week. As November promises to be even busier than October with two- count 'em two!- work-related trips, and an online graduate class, feeling ahead of the game now means I'll likely just be able to keep my head above water later on.
What were you up to this weekend? Partying? Laying low? Adventures? Something in between?
