Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

The Office Twirl

Oh hey dress, fancy seeing you again! In my most recent post, I gave this dress a casual make-under. Toned down the softness of this twirl dress with a denim vest, studded flats and a sloppy side braid. It was the perfect ‘run my errands’ kind of weekend outfit. And if you know me by now, you know that I love transforming pieces between work and play. It’s just a mental way for me to justify any purchase. Two (or more!) for the price of one.

Change of Shoes

A few of my non-blogging friends have asked. Maybe a few of you have wondered. So I am addressing it now. Indeed, I do wear all the outfits you see posted on the blog. I do not put outfits together for the sake of the photos. Every now and then I pre-shoot an outfit (mainly my work get-up) but you bet it gets worn within the week. This actually saves me time at least once a week when I am crazily getting ready for work and wrack my brain over what to wear because I am convinced I have nothing. So there is the blogging truth. Well, part of the truth. You see, there is one thing that does get changed behind the scenes.

The Brimfield Experience

Finally, I made it to the Brimfield Antique Show! After years of enviously hearing about other people’s trips to the show and all the great pics on IG, I decided that it was time I put this event on my calendar. So, this past Saturday, my friend Steph G and I jumped into my Mini and headed to the antique show where we met up with my friend Steph W, who drove in from Brooklyn. We spent about 4.5 hours browsing the varied wares offered by hundreds of vendors; definitely something for everyone. I think I spent half of the time there asking: “what is this” or “what does that do?” Luckily the vendors didn’t seem too annoyed with me as I’m sure they get those same questions all day long. And the furniture! So many pieces I wanted to bring home but because Dan and I live in a 725 square foot condo and I drive a Mini, I could only dream about where they could go if we had more space. Anyhow, here are a few snaps from my day trip to the show. You bet I’ll be going back for more!

To all the mom’s and mom’s-to-be out there, I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day! I was lucky enough to spend it with my mom and mother-in-law. On Sunday, Dan and I hopped into the Mini and zipped our way to Amesbury. Had no idea it was going to take us an hour to get there. Needless to say, we were a tad late. We brunched at No.8  Kitchen & Spirits, where I indulged in the duck confit hash accompanied by the best iced coffee, eva. That alone made the drive worth it! Once our bellies were full and gifts exchanged, it was time to hit the road. But before embarking on the hour-long drive, a mini photo sesh was in order; obvi.

Let Loose

Simply comfortable in a loose fitting T and jeans with my all time fave pair of espadrilles. As I sit here on this beautiful Sunday, I am already dreading that tomorrow is Monday. Why does it feel like the weekends go by in a blink of the eye? In the interest of enjoying what is left of my Sunday, I am going to keep this post short and sweet. Hope you all had a great weekend and let’s gear up for a new week!
