Last weekend Garrett and I escaped up to Santa Barbara for the weekend. I planned the trip and surprised him Thursday night. We were so in need of a little relaxing break and it was great to just relax and spend a few days together. We ate at some yummy restaurants along State Street, rode bikes along the beach, went for a morning run, and laid out by the pool. On our first night there I really wanted to dip my legs in the hot tub, so we headed over to the pool and were greeted by 13 teenage boys in the hot tub. 13 you guys! It was hilarious. I just sat my prego body on the first step and couldn’t care less (don’t worry, I didn’t get my tummy in). I was just sad I didn’t wear my string bikini 😉
Happy Monday! This week is Bradley’s Spring Break, so we have a few fun things planned. I am still recovering from two 14 hour work days this weekend (see a few sneak peaks here and here), so it will be nice to get to sleep in a bit more in the mornings instead of get out the door by 7:30. Bradley’s school starts at 7:30! Who does that?! Looking forward to a week spent playing at the pool and spending the day with my boys.
I’ve been working hard to fill my wardrobe with classic statement pieces. While different trendy pieces are fun to throw into the mix every so often, it is the simple quality pieces that I go to when putting together a look with only a few minutes to spare (which it the time frame I work with almost everyday). I love how this cream tweed jacket adds a little sophistication. To make this look everyday mom friendly, the heels could be swapped for some comfy sneakers and the jacket could be taken off.
To me, a minimalist look often translates as classic and timeless. I have fallen in love with this Arvo watch (I have it in black and brown). I’ve been on the hunt for a watch just like it, and the price for this one is so affordable. They didn’t skimp on the craftsmanship though, with the straps being genuine leather. I’m happy to make it even more affordable to you by letting you in on a 20% off code by using SUMMER20 at checkout. Their watches are unisex as well, which my husband loves. We’ve had to coordinate who gets to wear what color which day. Never quite thought that my husband would be interested in something from my wardrobe….
