Straight From The Garden

We canceled all of our plans this weekend and turned it into an epic staycation, one for the books! Honestly, I have no idea why we don’t do this more often, it was so much fun! We slept in, brunched at our favorite place (The Oxford Exchange), went shopping (Hello, J.Crew sale!), drank wine with friends, and put a dent in our novels. Also, my rose bush exploded on Saturday, making it feel extra special.  Is there anything better than fresh roses from your own garden?! I think not! More weekends like these, please!

 

5 Things I’m Loving:

1. Center Stage – I pulled out an oldie but goodie this weekend, Center Stage. If you haven’t seen this movie, you need to stop what you are doing and go watch it. I think I’ve seen it no less than 150 times. I love it so much, such a good classic!

2. Love & Gelato – Speaking of Novels, I started this one over the weekend and I love it so far. It’s super cute and a total beach read, or in my sister-in-law’s terms, it’s a “popcorn book“!

3. The Perfect $15.00 Tee – I snagged a few of these t-shirts over the weekend and I am OBSESSED. I was in desperate need of basics and these tops are not only super comfortable, but also extra flattering. Definitely worth the buy and you really can’t beat that price! (I got the white and pink in an xs, perfect fit!)

4. Dish Towel Obsession – I know I mentioned this on Instagram stories a week or so ago but I am OBSESSED with these dish towels, so much so that I ordered another set and officially tossed out all of our old ones. I’m NEVER going back to anything else. Also, this will now be my go-to bridal shower gift. SO. GOOD.

5. Raffia Sandals – I spotted these at Nordstrom over the weekend and instantly added them to my wishlist! I have a pair of raffia slides, but honestly, they are a bit too yellow for my skin tone and these were PERFECT. I’ve got my eye on them!
