It’s Friday! Hurray! God bless the weekend! Let’s get this party started! etc.
Seriously, though, who doesn’t love the weekend. For a work at home mom like me weekends mean going running at 7am and feeling like I’m doing something to be healthier this year. It means coming home to freshly washed, changed and breakfasted children (amazing!) and a whole two days with the Husband. We’re big on staycations these days- every weekend we try to see the city in some sort of “we’re locals but also tourists” combination. We’re still so new to LA and there is so much to explore. It always feels good to step out looking somewhat polished compared to the run-around-in-last-nights-clothes hurry hurry vibe of the rest of the week. In between working on this blog and working on my business, play dates, house work, cooking, groceries, library and park time, school runs, adventures in teething, bath times and bed times (occasions in and of themselves), there’s not much time for taking my time to get prepped. Luckily, I have a quick beauty routine down but on weekends I like to do a little bit more. Maybe sport my favourite red lipstick (Poppy by Joe Fresh Style) or break out the blow dryer to actually style my bob. And if I really want to aspire to some down time, nothing beats settling down with a cup of tea and a good book.
So this board is dedicated to my weekend style- simple pieces, not always expensive, but statement-worthy. Polished but relaxed, and always with a hint of gold.
Tell me about your weekend style! What are some of the things you like to do for R&R, and if you’re in LA, where do you like to go? And for more travel inspiration, check out I Want to Go To There on Pinterest.
Happy weekending, lovelies!
