I have been on a mission to get work, chores and errands done during the week, so that there is nothing left to be bothered with come the weekend. It’s always a challenge to get everything done in five days, but it is well worth it when I make it to Friday with two stress-free, fun days ahead. This weekend was exactly that – all fun. I spent quality time with my mom and younger sister (visiting from college in northern California). We had a productive craft day (many exciting DIYs to come) and an afternoon of shopping.
In the evenings, my boyfriend and I had friends over. One of the highlights was playing the celebrity game with friends. The game is a mix of taboo, charades and a memory game (aka awesome). We played guys versus girls, and quickly realized the charade part was not the guys’ strong suit. It was beyond entertaining to watch them act out difficult concepts through convoluted clues, all while steering their teammates completely off course.
In one such escapade, our friend crouched down and started shuffling back and forth like a hermit crab. He paused to look up with a silly grin on his face each time he started in a new direction. After a full minute of this, we were all in hysterics and had no idea what he was doing. His time was up and he fought off laughter to announce that he had been acting out Ashley Olsen. Apparently, crouching was meant to signal being short and the shuffling was supposed to convey that she is a twin, like “hey, it’s me here,” shuffle, shuffle, “oh, hey there is another of me.” It was incredible.
I wore this outfit during the day with flats and later at night with heels. I can’t get enough of denim/chambray shirts. They go with everything and are great for layering. I’m equally fond of bold, yet wearable prints like the one on these shorts (also seen here in dress form).
Chambray shirt: Gap, printed shorts: H&M, heels: Zara, necklaces: DIY (will have tutorial later), bracelets: Nordstrom (cuff), vintage (triple strand), Sheila Fajl (thin bangles), studs: H&M, rings: Suzanne Felsen (moonstone/white cocktail ring), Ariel Gordon, Gorjana and XIV Karats (gold bands).
Beauty note: I am in love with sock buns! Yes, I have a real sock in my hair here. I will have a tutorial up on Friday to get this oversized, ballerina-inspired updo.
