Holy Monday! Where did the weekend go?!  My weekend was fantastic, but I need like three more days.  Please??  I usually unwind a little over the weekend (Netflix binges on Saturday morning in PJs... Taco Bell breakfast optional... Anyone else?) but this weekend I was going nonstop!  I had a crazy early morning on Saturday so I could get all dolled up for a styling event with CS Gems and The Fashion Lane Mobile Boutique (a store on a truck.  Yes OMG.)  After that Caryl and I slammed some Greek food (being photographed is hard work...) and hung out with my dog and chatted closet organization, blogging, and everything else.  I finished up my day getting some desperately needed groceries, and then falling asleep sitting up trying to watch a movie with the husband.  Then Sunday was another jam packed day!  Started my day with early church (which is 3 hours so that's like half my day lol!) and then a quick nap, making an appetizer to bring over to a friend's for a game night, blog photos, answering emails, and actually going to game night.  
And since this is a style blog... I wore this outfit a couple weekend ago for errands, but just got around to photographing it yesterday.  I realized my black lace-up flats haven't made the blog until now, which is like whoa because I wear them ALL the time.  I am obsessed.  And said obsession justifies buying the olive ones too right???  Because I think I need them in my life.  This inexpensive little leather backpack has seen a surprising amount of use already too!  It's super convenient and the price cannot be beat.  I wouldn't recommend the cognac though, it looks super cheap in real life, while the black looks pretty impressive for under $30.  

That's all for now.  Stay tuned for a couple of my looks from the styling event this weekend, a tutorial on industrial pipe closet systems, and a few other fun posts this week!

    1. They are pretty comfortable, but they're also adorable. So maybe not quite evenly matched, but pretty close!
