this weekend.

The past couple of weeks have been insane...working on our house non-stop. We finally got to a place where we can take a break from the projects for awhile... and I am so happy with how it's looking, especially now that it's getting warmer and the plants are starting to bloom in the garden :)


One of my favorite details of our house, the Victorian banister.

On Friday we head up to Cleveland for the weekend to take care of a few being a trip to The Brew Kettle to bottle the man's first self-brewed IPA.


What I wore on Saturday...kept it simple due to all the running around we had planned.

Black off-the-shoulder tee from American Apparel
Abercrombie jeans (from probably almost 10 years ago)
Botkier Eden satchel
Aviators (about the only style of sunglasses that I wear)

I wore my favorite wedges the entire weekend, but not exactly by choice...I forgot to pack any other shoes for myself ;)

 At The Brew Kettle - A little harmless taste-testing while bottling 
his creation ;)

Now we are home, cooking dinner and listening to some vinyl...
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend and has a fabulous week...
I know that I plan on taking full advantage of the sunshine and high temps!

missed the boat

There are a couple items that I hesitated on purchasing awhile back and, to this day, wish that I hadn't!
I'm sure everyone knows the feeling...
At the time I had started being very conscious about the money I was spending, really evaluating each purchase I made (since my closet was overflowing and bank account was hurting)
...but I definitely regret not pulling the trigger on these two things...

River Island sequin jacket
Seen here on the beautiful Teresa from Style Drifter (formerly Candy and Cookie)

H&M beige poncho

On the bright side...thanks to ebay, I still may be able to get my hands on these! I have been sure to check every couple of weeks just in case they pop up ;)

Is there anything you regret holding back on purchasing?
