Did everyone have a great weekend? After I snuck in my fourth Corepower class of the week (I’m very proud of this fact, if you can’t tell.) on Friday afternoon, Neal and I headed up to the lake house for a couple days.
Then on Saturday, I drove one more hour south to South Bend, Indiana for my college friend Aubrey’s baby shower! I don’t get to see her very often as she lives in Omaha, so it was so good to see her and her family!
Side note: I can’t believe I’m old enough for my college girlfriends to start having kids. EEK! I’m not going to lie though, I’m SO excited to meet that sweet baby girl in a few short months!
Time is traveling so quickly these days. Friends getting married, having babies, holidays flying by so quickly you can’t even keep track of what’s coming up next. Wasn’t it just Christmas? How is it almost Valentine’s Day? (Side note, if you haven’t gotten on your V-Day gift game yet, you’ll want to check out Friday’s post here for some of my favorite gift reccos!) I’m constantly telling myself I need to slow down and enjoy the moment.
Anyway, we snapped these photos on Blair’s roof when I was there along with Kelly and Shaheen collaborating on a fun project and doing a little blogger work day. Sometimes working cooped up in our houses alone all day gets lonely, so it’s always fun to get out of the house and work together! (Even though that means we are all slightlyyyy less productive. Haha, woops!) This is one of my regular workday outfits due to the fact that it’s super comfy, yet still pulled together enough for me to feel like a real human being.
Because temperatures had dropped significantly from earlier that afternoon–this J.Crew coat (which is currently 25% off! FYI–it runs big!) did not come off, you guys. But I figured you would understand. (I am SO OVER WINTER.) However, underneath is one of my favorite textured white sweaters. I love it because it’s a lot different than most of my sweaters, and the additional textured elements make my outfit more interesting! Of course, being a casual work day, I wore my standard high-waisted skinnies (which I love, not just because they’re super flattering, but because they don’t dip down in the back and show my undies when I’m sitting down working on my computer all day. SUCH a big pet peeve of mine!) as well as navy loafers, which are pretty much my shoe of choice lately when I’m inside and/or it isn’t snowing!
I hope everyone has a great start to the week!
