The husband went off on a fishing trip with his dad and uncle this weekend, leaving me all alone. Freedom! j/k. Truth be told, I had a lot of work and stuff I wanted to get done, so I took this opportunity to do the things that I know would have taken time away from our couple time together anyway. I'm usually the one that takes off for girls weekends or business trips, leaving him alone for the weekend, so it was nice that this time he got to go out. I'm always encouraging K to take more trips with his friends...it's good and refreshing (speaking of which...gotta get on planning my next girls' weekend).
Saturday is a good example of one of my style goals for myself: dressing more intentionally and working nicer pieces (not just tees, tanks, and jeans) into my weekend wear. I've done this before with a blue and white striped shirt, but since that wasn't in my 30, I went for this one instead. I liked the end result. The french braid (coming out to the side) is my new favorite hair-do for summer...I wonder if it will fly for the office?
Sunday is a more traditional outfit for me. It was supposed to be 100 degrees, but I spent the morning covering an event for work (photographing and taking notes for a story), so I couldn't go with the shorts. I actually ended up tossing my cardigan on top of this, since it was actually a little too cool this morning for just a tee. And after the event I rolled the jeans up to capri length.
How was your weekend?
