Weekend RoundUp: 03.05.16

Writing my weekend round up post is always bitter sweet! I love recapping what has happened during my days off and quality time with my friends and loved ones but it also reminds me of how fast it went and how much I am going to miss it! 

This weekend was pretty laid back, we didn't have many plans (other than family dinners) and sort of just went with the flow and did what we decided to in the moment. 

I decided to go minimal with my make-up on Saturday and skip the eyeliner..... WHAT! I am an addict to my thick black winged liner ( I even did a post on how I perfect my cateyes)! It was refreshing to change up my look for the day and it actually took quite a bit of time off my getting ready clock! 

Saturday afternoon we went out to visit my parents at their new house that they are currently remodelling. We had an awesome time there just hanging out and looking at all the hard work and progress that has come along since the last time I visited! 

I snapped a quick picture of the main staircase. I am in love with the look of the white classic stairs and the exposed wood of the walls! 

We ended the night with some family dinner and getting together with friends to watch the fights. Sunday morning we had some fun decorating plastic Easter eggs and lounging around the house, with coffee of course! 

We headed out for some lunch at a local sushi place. My OOTD consists of a denim top from Target, blush jeans from Material Girl Line  at The Bay, booties from Call it Spring & watch from Daniel Wellington.

I tried to add a bit of spring into the house and put out some new white tulips in my bathroom. I love the subtle change that it makes.. look forward to a decor post on Spring updates. 

Now winding down from a great weekend makes me feel ready to start another amazing week doing all things that I love. I cannot wait to share my journey with everyone.

Time for some Davids Tea -Movie Night tea and get myself ready for the week. 

I would love to hear about your  weekend! Post in the comments below!

What I Wore: An Outfit Diary

This past weekend I was away on a work trip for three nights and three days. I always find that I pack too many items for the trip (which I still ended up doing this time, but it wasn't as excessive as past times).

Here is a quick look at what I packed for my dressier outfits;

Black Blazer (Forever21), White Peplum top (Dynamite), black & gold belt (Forever21), Olive Sweater (Urban Outfitters), black skinnies (American Eagle), Statement Necklace (Forever21), Clutch (Love Culture), Black Aviators (RayBans), Black boots & Brown boots (Call It Spring), Black bomber (Forever21), Black distressed skinnies (Forever21), Striped dress (Forever21), Watch (Daniel Wellington), White Blouse (Forever21), Beige Sweater (H&M)

The Packing Process

I find that if I try on the outfits that I am wanting to bring and look in the mirror it will help me decide if this is the best option to go with or will I find something better that I would rather bring to wear. 

Once I am set on what outfits I am going to bring I always bring an extra sweater or dress incase I decide I want to wear something different that day You want to have the right amount of outfits but you also don't want to feel trapped in what you brought to wear.

Day One:

When we first got there we had some errands to run and a few things to do before we had to get ready for the night. I chose to wear my olive green sweater with my ripped skinnies and my converse shoes. This outfit was comfortable but also kept me warm in the cold weather. 

For the night it was more of a casual evening so I went with a denim shirt, statement necklace, same ripped skinnies & brown booties.

Face of the Day:

I kept my makeup simple with just a winged liner and some red lips.

This hotel was horribly dry and not only did my skin pay the price but my hair also became full of static. I find that this is a common issue in most hotels that are older and I always have to add oil or double up on conditioner to keep my hair from freaking out. My skin was okay for the first two days but after that I felt very dry and dull.  

 

Day Two: 

This night was the dressier of the two. Even though these nights are dressy we still needed to be about to walk around and do things in our outfits. This is why I am loving the skinnies/booties/blouse combo, it is soo easy to just throw on and not have to worry about how short a skirt is or how my feet will hurt after a few hours in heels. This is definitely my go to outfit combination! 

The Outfit:
I went with wearing my Black skinnies, black booties, white blouse and the same statement necklace from the night before.  (My necklace is from HRH Collection)

The more I packed for weekends away the more I find a certain style I feel comfortable in and what I enjoy wearing. Next weekend I have an event I am also going to so look forward to a new post next weekend about what I wore then!
