I have not been a very good blogger lately, or throughout the Winter really.  In December, I got approval to work from home full time.  This was an absolute blessing.  Prior to that, I had been driving over an hour each way to work, three days a week, for about a year. It wasn’t always that way, but when my boyfriend got a good job in Richmond–a place we both wanted to live–I made a sacrifice.  Working from has been great for me in so many ways (more sleep, less stress, etc.), but it’s also helped me slack on blogging.  When you don’t have to leave the house to work, there is no sense in getting dressed in anything other than leggings and a sweatshirt.  It’s dark outside when my photographer (aka boyfriend) gets home from work and our weekends have been so busy that it’s just been difficult.  In the coming weeks, I will be making an effort to post more.

We had some nice weather this weekend (for about 24 hours).  Saturday was spent doing some painting around the house but Sunday was a lovely day which included brunch with my family.  I took the opportunity to wear bright Spring colors and open-toed shoes before the cold weather returns this week.  When I said these were my favorite pants, I meant it.  I just bought them in the polka-dot print and I am sure you will be seeing them sometime in the near future.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

I wasn’t kidding last week when I said these were my new favorite shorts. They are so comfortable and I have been wearing them so often that anyone who sees me frequently is probably starting to wonder if I own any other clothes. I’m only slightly exaggerating. They are THE perfect pair of Summer shorts. I wore them out to dinner last night after taking in the view on the Sound side, which might be just as pretty as the ocean.

Statement Piece

28th June 2013

I love the simplicity of this dress.  It makes it easy to add statement pieces like this chunky necklace and straw bag.  Not to mention it’s super comfortable and easy to throw on for just about anything.  What would I do without TJ Maxx?
