Happy Friday! I’m excited that the weekend is almost here so I’ve put together three things I think will make this weekend fit and fab. Hope you enjoy!
- Stripes and leather: I write about my love of stripes pretty frequently on this blog, and thus I’m very excited they’re big again for spring. Now, I realize much of the United States has been enjoying warmer than usual weather but here in Seattle winter just doesn’t want to let go. So, for the weekend I’m into pairing my spring stripes with a leather jacket, dark skinny jeans, infinity scarf and pointy toe flats to create a style that’s great for transitioning between the seasons. It’s a little edgy but still has an effortless and classic vibe perfect for running errands or doing some shopping around the city.
- Peach Bellinis: How fabulous is brunch? I love it! Sweet and savory combinations, breakfast pastries, great conversation and of course,bellinis. (Or mimosas…it’s up to you). I love the color of bellinis so much in fact, the peach and golden champagne colors actually inspired my wedding. You can make your brunch this weekend extra special with some simple prosecco (less expensive than champagne) and a splash of peach nectar or some pureed frozen peaches. Or you can do orange juice instead if you’d prefer a mimosa.
- Get some “you” time: We can all get super busy. There’s constant information always coming at us from smart phones, television and the internet …and while work projects, home commitments and family are wonderful and incredibly important, it’s also important to get some you time. Even just a few minutes of silence and relaxation have been shown to reduce stress levels, making you healthier and happier. A beach like the one in the picture is my idea of paradise but unfortunately making it to one is not the most practical choice, so instead I try and find at least 5 minutes everyday to enjoy flipping through an InStyle or just listening to some relaxing music. Try to find just a little bit of “you” time this weekend and you’ll start the week feeling more relaxed:)
