What a weekend! So jam-packed and fun filled, it just sparked some life back into me. Sometimes I can be a very introverted person, which I know probably surprises some people to read that. However, sometimes being social freaks me out and I just want to hole up in my apartment, usually with my man, and hang out just us two. That said, if I push myself and go out, I often have an amazing time and feel more energized. I'm not saying I never want to be social, only sometimes, and this weekend ended up being quite social and felt so great.
Onto the recap...
On Friday night I picked up some groceries & beer and headed to my man's place. I made burgers and a strawberry spinach salad for us (he did the grilling). It turned out perfect and we watched some men's volleyball while we ate. The perfect summer dinner (with beer; important not to forget that part).
For my mom's birthday she told my sister and I that she would like a birthday lunch on a patio with us two. So, Saturday was that day and we took her to Jack Astor's. This is what I wore, which was not planned as I had another outfit I was so excited to wear until my bf's cat peed in my overnight bag. So. Pissed.
Outfit deets: D-Tox crop top (new!), DIY maxi dress & various bracelets (from bottom: garage sale, unknown, from my trip to Dominican Republic & F21 x 2).
I had the Kung-Fu Steak Salad.
Saturday night was so exciting; we attended the Governor General's Award Gala. I had never been before (nor heard of it) but it was an evening of free food, drinks and a great time. A friend works in advertising and got tickets and kindly took us all. The awards ceremony was a little dull, to be honest, but the party before, during intermission and after into the wee hours of the night was so much fun.
Outfit deets: vintage dress, Walmart shoes (I'm not kidding; and purchased like eight years ago and this is the first time I've worn them & I love them...and so did everyone else-bonus!), Asos clutch (sold out unfortunately, but similar ish HERE) & Swarovski bangle.
A friend brought along a baguette for Baguette Me Nots photo-ops, too funny! I'd never heard of the site but we got lots of funny shots.
The next day I didn't bring another purse with me so out to breakfast with my feather clutch I went!
That afternoon I met up with a client for a wardrobe consult & edit. We went through her closet, purged items & styled several different outfits for her to wear to work and on weekends. It was very successful. Our next session will be a shopping trip this week to add some staple pieces in so we can style more outfits to take her from work to weekend.
Outfit deets: the same Gap denim jacket that I bleached years ago, Joe Fresh tee (old) , Sirens shorts (old), vintage necklace & Urban Expressions bag.
Sunday evening ended up being an impromptu date night with amazing thai food in my neighbourhood.
Hope you had a great weekend!
