I’m grateful it’s Friday because in just a few hours the weekend begins. Work and home life has been hectic, to say the least. A few friends commented on how I should probably take a break or go on vacation–there simply isn’t time at the moment to do so. I crave the space that weekends bring–it’s a day or two where I don’t have to wake up right away, where I can slow down and hit that snooze button once, maybe twice if I’m feeling luxurious.
To get in the spirit of the weekend, here’s something I made up from the bits and pieces in my closet. Shifting my financial focus onto future travel (and subsequent expenses) has really made it easier to slow my shopping down and think of other things to save up for. My closet is performing well, even if the colors and items do get repetitive at times. It’s too warm for pants, so I’ve been stuck in the same three skirts and three dresses for work and play lately:
I still love this shirt from last year but the fit is awkward now. It’s too loose to be fitted and yet not quite cutely oversized. I’ve been wearing some of my shirts as summer outerwear to get more use out of them. At the Diptyque event, I left the chambray shirt off and around my waist–my version of the plaid flannel tied around the waist, I suppose. It’s good to have around for when that air conditioning/frigid building temperatures come into play.
Just a little bit more to go until relative freedom (for two days anyhow) at 5 pm. I look forward to eating a whole bunch of tasty food, iced coffee drinks, and afternoon naps this Saturday and Sunday. What do you look forward to the most during summer weekends?
