Back At It













Blazer: H&M (similar); Tank: Obey; Jeans: Gap; Heels: c/o Lulu*s; Necklace: c/o Lulu*s

What did I do on this long weekend?

I waited out the PDX boil at a brewery with whiskey and IPA. I strolled second-hand shops searching for a wall mirror. I spent too long crying about the series finale of Dawson's Creek (I just finally got around to finishing it). I worked on the blog a bit (kinda, sorta) by adding my recently purchased items to a "shop" tab and making a beauty tab.

I tidied the house and enjoyed some gin and tonics. I wandered down the waterfront to watch the Portland City Fair's masses. I painted my nails. I spent a day with a good friend, eating various Portland treats and sharing secrets.

Long weekends are pretty magical. I spent hours on the phone with my mom, wedding planning, without it cutting into precious weekend chore/activity time. And I watched countless episodes of bad TV without feeling guilty. I didn't worry about waking early, or waking late, and ended up waking at the perfect time each morning. I got to watch the sun rise and set in our apartment. Smelled a fresh rain fall.

There's magic and promise in just one extra day, made all the sweeter by the short week ahead as we tie up May in a pretty, sunny bow, and say hello to June.

  10. Sounds like a magical three day weekend! I'be never watched Dawsons Creek. Should I? Have you watched One Tree Hill? It's my all time favorite show and I think it and DC are similar. Now let's talk about your outfit. One of my favorites of your looks! Tee and bf jeans are so cool while the blazer and heels add polish. Love!
