Weekend Vibes

Oh how I love the weekend.
Whether my day is jammed packed with fun events (like the previous weekend was due to NYFW) or wide open, except for the occasional blog photoshoot (Sorry Paris), I always cherish my Saturday & Sundays.

This weekend was really chill. As I mentioned I was coming off New York Fashion Week, and although I ditched more events then I attended (oops) juggling my 9-5 and NYFW events was a lot to handle (I know, tough life right? #bloggerprobs). I was in a constant fog last week, barley sleeping, not knowing what day it was and feeling so out of it. I even re-wore the same outfit to work two days in a row, haha double oops!
Needless to say, I really needed the little breather this weekend to recover. I kicked off the day by spending a half hour on my hair trying (and failing) to master milkmaid braid - the style is not short hair friendly but you'll see my best attempt in these pics - blogging from my bed (there's a really big post coming your way Friday, here's a hint to hold you over), and talking my monster of a todo list. Then I stepped out for brunch with Paris & my Best Friend, Sheree! Fun fact she's a super awesome actress in the making and my bestie since High School all the way in AZ, I totally love having her in the city. We couldn't be more opposite, but we do have a few important things in common, our fat girl tendencies, love for tween novels (divergent, hunger games, maze runner ... you name it we read it), our sense of humor and our Teen Wolf obsession. After brunch, this photoshoot and getting caught in the rain, we went back to my place to catch up on our favorite awful TV show (teen wolf, duh!).
Caught in the rain mid photoshoot without an umbrella, don't worry, I shared with Ree... That's what besties are for (more here)
Later Ree went to work & I went back to blogging, and errr online shopping. After feasting on sour patch kids, binge watching PLL (I hope you aren't judging me on my TV choices.... you know you love awful teen Television too!) I stayed up later than I would have liked finishing up Friday's big post, it was a true labor of love so I hope you enjoy! Sunday was a lot of the same, glued to my computer, but I did manage to sneak out to do some damage to my bank account for fall shopping with miss Daisy (she's back to blogging now, so swing by) check out this killer find!!!
I am loving the denim on denim trend (Paris disagrees, sorry agin P) so I took the look a step further by going on blue with distressed denim, a tied chambray and a baby blue baseball sweater. Side note about this sweater, I got it in every color and will be wearing it all season long. It's also a little nod to a fun collab I'm working on with Baseball Babe, Krista of Covering Bases - be sure to tune in Wednesday for that! Because I didn't want to be all blue, I added a dose of leopard with these new pointed toe pumps, I love that they have a thicker heel making them perfect for walking around in NYC!

Well that's a wrap for this weekend, sometimes it's best to just rewind (especially when bad TV and good friends are involved), what did you get into this weekend? I would love to hear all about it in the comments below XO
