Weekend Errand Wearing

Summer stripes

This post should probably have been called “Another Striped Shirt, Vol. 12,” but instead let’s acknowledge just how easy it is to create a pulled together outfit with something so basic as a pair of pull-on shorts (#elasticwaistforthewin) and a loose striped tee. Wearing long sleeves is pretty much the worst in the summer months thanks to DC’s humidity, so I’ll take any chance I can get to pair them with shorts this time of year.

A Casual Dinner Look

Casual summer style

Heyyy friends. Starting this week is tough because this weekend was awesome. I had a Saturday Funday of sorts (no, not quite the Fraturdays in years past #college) but a bunch of us went to the 1pm Nats game, drank some beers + yard margaritas, and hung out together for the rest of the day. We went to a bar for the first Caps playoff game, still got home by 9pm, and woke up early ready to tackle Sunday…seriously the perfect kind of weekend. I never really end up taking a day fully “off” between the blog + school, so it was a fun and overdue treat even though it wasn’t productive work-wise! J and I got brunch at Tupelo Honey yesterday and had a quasi-failed attempt to pick up a few things for the apartment…turns out way more stores are closed on Easter than I thought! Some free shipping deals came through for us, though, and we snagged a couple of things from Crate & Barrel (like this utensil holder) and The Container Store.

I’m Loving: Springy Things + A Can’t-Miss Sale

It finally feels like spring! As much as I love the cold and am bummed we didn’t get a “real” winter here in DC, the 80 degree days have been pretty splendid aside from the allergies they bring. I wanted to share a few things I bought recently + some more spring and summer finds to hopefully help fill some gaps in your closet! Because don’t we all need a few new goodies this time of year? :)

PS: One of the biggest and best sales of the year starts today, too, and of course comes out after I made this entire post! So the deets are at the end!
