Je t'aime, weekend getaway.

Have you ever had a weekend that feels like a vacation, despite a lack of travel?  The weather's perfect, a mixture of relaxation and activity fills your days, and you're able to set into your zen zone.

After a long & stressful week that was less than ideal, a hometown escape was much needed this past weekend. So I threw care to the wind and set out to regroup (wearing my Eiffel Tower shirt as inspiration, of course). I slept in, went to the farmer's market, visited friends & family, ate plenty, walked around the zoo, took in sunshine while laying in the grass, and had a glass of wine or two along the way. Now, on Sunday evening as I prepare this post, I'm feeling more at peace, which was not what I would describe my mind-frame entering into the weekend.

Peace is a frame of mind, you see. Sometimes you just need to step back, relax, and take a breather.
My weekend getaway was just what I needed.

Pants - Urban Outfitter (previous season). Similar ones here & here
Blouse - Francesca's | Oxford Shoes - Old. Similar ones here & here.
Necklace - Vintage.

Care to dance? Follow my lead.

  5. Sometimes a stay-cation (or weekend spend at a place you consider "home") is really all you need to hit the reset button. I'm in SERIOUS need of one of those, which is why I'm looking forward to Memorial Day weekend!
