I’ve been feeling really grateful for these long summer days recently. && even though our nights and weekends seem really busy (as they do to everyone I’m sure) the extra daylight always helps.  I think that’s a big reason why I always feel like doing more things in the summertime–opposed to going home and curling up in my pjs like I tend to do in the winter haha.  So I figured I would share some fun date ideas!  None of these are ground breaking ideas but they are all casual, realistic, inexpensive & things that would put me in a happy mood!

1:  FARMERS MARKET STROLL & BRUNCH— I love this idea because it’s something you can do after a Saturday morning workout.  Buy some fresh flowers to take home (I kind of fell in love with these sun flowers for warm days) and then find somewhere to grab food at an outside table!

2:  MIDWEEK MOVIE NIGHT— I love going to the movies on a week night!  It’s the perfect way to break up the week.  We like to catch a 7:30-8:30 showing.  That way we can still get in a workout & dinner after work.  It feels good to disconnect for a couple of hours and then go home and hop in bed.  We always pick a theater where we can get a glass of wine while watching too!

3:  COFFEE SHOP SITTING—  On Saturday/Sunday mornings we love to go to our favorite coffee shop and get our lattes for here instead of to-go.  It’s so nice to just sit down and have a coffee instead of rushing out the door with it.  We people watch or look at silly videos on our phone and just take some time to remember it’s the weekend.

4: NETFLIX & CHILL WITH A DOCUMENTARY— There are so many good options out there that aren’t a tv series or movie.  We love to switch things up with a documentary.  Our favorites recently have been The Defiant Ones (it’s actually on HBO), Making a Murderer & The Queen of Versailles.

5: NEIGHBOORHOOD STROLL AT DUSK— Taking the dog for a walk after dinner is one of my favorite things to do.  I always feel better if I move around after I eat and it can be so relaxing.  We ususlly talk about all the different houses we pass, pointing out things we like or don’t like and sometimes we have a little glass of wine in hand too!

Let me know if you all enjoy any of these same things!  We find that simple date nights are often best!

&& I do want to share a little about my jewelry in these photos with you all too!  I have been a long time fan of Margaret Elizabeth.  Their pieces have a 24k gold overlay and the most gorgeous precious stones.  I think I love the brand so much because the pieces are unique AND high quality.  I wear mine with anything from jeans and a v-neck tee to a lace dress and heels.  The newest addition to their collection?  This three stone Bixby bangle.  I am LOVING mine.

Off the Shoulder Love

OE-6390 OE-6398 OE-6409 OE-6426OE-6459OE-6419OE-6437

Off the Shoulder Top || Black Jeans

Necklace || Lace Up Heels, similar || Sunnies

I got this off the shoulder swing top a couple weeks ago and I have worn it wayyy to much already!  I love the style of it because it is flowy so it’s cool enough to wear now but I think it will be a great transitional piece too.  And this color is what really sent me over the edge!  It’s SUCH a great dark neutral color–just a little different from the typical black.   I wore it last Friday with the black denim and heels that you see above and I also included a couple pics below from when I wore it with white jeans and sandals–since the month of September is all about the “wear now and wear later” items.  && side note, those white jeans are definitely worth adding to your cart [[especially for only $23]]!  You will be so happy you have them to pull out come next summer.  They are a straight leg fit (more modest than the painted-on-legging look) and the fabric is the perfect thickness so it’s not see-through but yet still has some stretch.  Those Margaret Elizabeth bracelets I am wearing still give me all kinds of heart eyes, btw!  I have had them a while and they are still my favorite bracelets to throw on.IMG_2935 IMG_3105

Off the Shoulder Top || White Jeans (Only $23)

Gold Choker Necklace || Sandals  (40% Off)

Gigi New York Clutch || Margaret Elizabeth Bangles [still my FAVORITES]

I hope you all are starting off your Saturday right–aka, with some goooood coffee and major weekend vibes! Muah!


High-Lo Tee


High-lo tee || Shorts || Flatform Heels

Margaret Elizabeth Bangles 1, 2, 3 || Thumb Ring

I found this little high-lo tee from Express last week and I am in love!  I’m always a fan of anything that is soft knit, yet has a good shape to it and this one definitely fits the bill!  I have it paired here with my new FAVORITE white shorts and these majorly comfy Marc Fisher flatforms (that I can’t stop wearing).  But seriously–you all know how hard it is to find the perfect pair of white shorts, right?  I usually run into pairs that have a thick pocket outline that stands out [eye roll] or a bulky button that makes shirts lay wrong [eye roll] or are sheer and a little too risqué in the back [double eye roll].  But, I’m happy to say that this pair doesn’t have any of those unwanted qualities!  I’m for sure that I’ll be wearing them all summer.. starting with this coming weekend!

Speaking of–y’all we’re inching closer & closer to the long weekend.  Ahhhh, Memorial Day Weekend here we come!  Thank gosh!  Who has fun plans to kick off the summer?  We leave for DC on Friday and I am so ready!  ..Well not really, because I haven’t packed a thing BUT tonight me and the Housewives on my DVR are tackling laundry and then tomorrow night I’ll get all my ducks in a row and be ready to head out and have a cocktail come 5 o’clock on Friday!  🙂  Here are the new goodies that I plan on packing to take with me.  SIDE NOTE:  lots are on sale as of today [40%!] so shop them fast!  Most are cute basics that you can mix and match and do a lot with!
