What I Wore: Impromptu Getaway

Although my week had a lot of high’s, there were quite a few low’s as well. It was stressful and I was pretty sure the end was nowhere in sight, so when the light that was Friday evening strolled around, I was ready to just relax. I had mentioned on Facebook that I wanted to lay out on a beach and do nothing, but I knew that wasn’t going to be possible. I had a lot of things on my agenda for the weekend, basically leaving me no time to just sit back and relax so I decided to take things into my own hands. Sometimes what you really need to do is cancel all your plans and take an impromptu mental health day. And I did just that.

I grabbed the hubs, we piled into the Cube and we made our way down to The Florida Keys. It was a gorgeous day, and we spent it admiring the scenery, looking at boats we will never be able to afford, drinking girly drinks (yum) and eating seafood (lobster to be exact – double yum) while ocean side. It was a beautiful and perfect escape – I highly recommend doing the same every now and then. Life is too short to not sit back and enjoy it sometimes.

Like my at-home manicure? I was totally inspired by this.
In case you are wondering, I used a Sharpie to create the chevron pattern. ;)

Arm party!


Rum punch always does the trick.

    Love that chevron! I did a chevron nail with striping tape, but using a pen would make so much more sense!
