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.

Friday Things

This week can probably be summed up by the following phrase: gorgeous weather and horrible allergies. I’m sure many of you know the feeling! It was a busy one with work and homework but I snuck in a happy hour on the W Hotel patio–they have bocce and are right next to the Treasury!– and caught up with a friend over happy hour last night. We’re heading to a Nats game this weekend and I’m going to be organizing more things around the apartment and buckling down to crank out a lot of work since the next few weeks are already filled to the brim. Hope you have a great weekend, and Happy Easter to those who celebrate!

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!
