Heat

So hot and loving it!!!! This weather brings me back to my childhood - super hot summer heat, pool days, shorts N' flip flops, BBQ's and bike rides. Now as an adult, those activities are more than just 'fun' they help me reconnect with myself and force me to unplug from the stresses of being 'adult' (ie WORK).  Separating work from the rest of my life is hard - my mindset about work is one that never turns off. I define myself by how I am succeeding at work - not a healthy trait, I know. I'm proud to say for the past month I have been doing lots of 'me' stuff verses my routine of doing things to prep me for the next week. And as hard as it is for me to admit to myself it is what I should have been doing all along.


Saturday Errands outfit {Tank H&M, shorts Target - pooch optional!} // some Snapdragons for the week, Organized fridge - yes I may have a slight case of OCD // Sunday morning decision - which suit to wear to the pool // I went with the mulit-colored sequin {Dress old Elizabeth & James, Bikini old VS} // Brats {boiled in beer before charred on the grill}

How were your weekends? How do you find the balance of personal and work life?

  1. I love seeing your pics on instagram, and you look so cute in your pictures! Totally with you on the arrival of summer. My bf and I grilled some delish veggies tonight, and although my run was super hard in the heat, it was totally worth it.
