Whenever a long weekend is coming, I’m counting down the minutes. Because even if you don’t give yourself over to rest and relaxation, so many things are closed that you have time to catch up and just breath.
Long Weekend Ready
My last few weeks have been pretty crazy; I’ve been feeling like I just don’t have enough hours in the day to get everything done. It’s been an exercise in prioritizing and giving myself strategic breaks. At this point, I’m thrilled with the long weekend. I’ll probably still have a ton of stuff to get accomplished but with so many places closed, I’ll have to prioritize less and won’t be struggling with what’s more important.
On another note. There are a lot of items that I buy, but don’t expect to be the first dress I pull out of my closet; not all dress are created equal. This was one of those dresses – I liked it, but didn’t expect it to become an instant favorite. It has literally become one of the first dresses I reach for these days. I love the lace detail in the back (which means that if my hair is up it looks intentional rather than lazy) and the floaty light silhouette. The dress came with a matching slip, but I prefer the contrast of the black slip to make the lace details on the back stand out – the color is so close to my skin tone! I basically need to hide it in my closet so I don’t wear it everyday – because I completely would. It’s sold out in the nude color, but still available in black.
