Weekend Warrior

My week days start at 6:30 am with a 3 mile run (only if I’m really on it, 7:20am and no run, if I’m not) and they end at 12:30am with me putting the finishing touches on a blog or a tweet or a post or something that requires brain power that I usually don’t possess at that hour. I fully work full time. Day to day outfits are skirts and dresses and heels and intentional outfits – attempts to subliminally make people respect me and think “hey, she should probably style our next campaign.” But the weekend is when the magic happens.

Weekend warrior. That’s what I am. Rather, that’s what my new summer obsession called THESE OVERALLS are. Only recently have I started experiencing this thing called “weekends” and, glory be, those two days off in a row are life changing. Saturday and Sunday lay open before me and my closet. So here I am, with two days of adventurous, city-life bliss up for grabs and this denim hero. You better believe I am wearing them TO EVERYTHING. Beach trip – over my bikini. Day at park – make it french, opt for a Breton striped shirt. Concert in Brooklyn – racer back tank and platform sandals. Fourth of July Weekend in Connecticut – still not sure, but will report back about this on Monday. I think my husband is a little over the ‘alls, but I honestly can’t stop. I feel younger and cuter, I feel patriotic, I feel gutsier, I feel this weird mix of nostalgia and the pride you get when your outfit is actually ‘on-trend.’

I guess if I had an Independence Day wish for you, I would wish that you find what I’ve found. Whether it’s overalls, a vintage army-green jacket, or a sundress that just won’t quit, I hope you stop thinking about what you need in your wardrobe so much and just buy what makes you feel happy. Make my July 4th wish come true (please, sorry mom) – shop these pieces I’m loving and experience the Overall Attitude life change. Be the weekend warrior you’ve always dreamed you can be. And then let that bleed over to Monday.  Deal? Deal.

OVERALLS

Hoping God blesses you, your closet & our lovely country this weekend.

Happy 4th ya’ll.

Holidays in the big city are the best because FRIENDS COME TO TOWN!

The past few weeks have been amazing as three, count em, THREE sets of friends have been to visit, which means we get to play little tour guides and visit places that we don’t normally visit. Yes, it’s true, it’s easy to get disenchanted with the Big Apple or any other place you dwell.

One of Ryan’s best buddies came to town and luckily, this best buddy is married to one of MY best buddies so it was two days of LAUGHTER and ADVENTURE. We picked them up on Tuesday evening and headed straight to Madison Square Garden to watch the New York Knicks play the Brooklyn Nets and film a little bit for the Radio City Rockette’s Spring Spectacular.* As a Brooklyn newbie (we moved to the hipster burough in August) I felt it was only fitting to pull together an outfit that would support my team but would look just as cool as Beyonce does when she sits court side.

It’s not holiday-inspired, but girrrrl, I felt festive when the Nets scored that final point to win the game!
