Weekending and Beaching

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Welcome back Monday…..I think I am going to start taking some of my PTO days off when it comes to Monday.  Seriously aren’t you just that much of a happier person when you can have a 3 day weekend?  Mark was gone this weekend and I had all intentions of staying home, getting my house cleaned and a few posts ready to roll this week.  Instead I went to my parents house where I got spoiled, slept and got my car washed.  Then I came back and met my bridesmaid Abbey at the beach and got some well deserved vitamin D (face and highlights covered) but it felt so nice to be outside!

I’m linking up with my girl B for her weekending linkup!  Let’s get going with some of those visuals!

I took over thebloggercloset over the weekend and started off Friday with a little work action outfit. I love this striped shirt perfect transition staple from Summer to Fall.

Top old similar here splurge///save here and here///necklace sold out similar here

Cannot get enough of OPI Mod About You.  The formula is a little weird the first coat but coat 2 is a perfect matte pink.

I stopped at the CVS where my parents live and came out to this.  You know you live in Florida when……

I mean seriously that is how the old man parked his caddy.  Did he think he was in a spot or is he suffering from “old man don’t give a damn” syndrome?  Needless to say I got out of there before he could back that boat right into me…..

Finally got all my goodies from the past few weeks that were ordered up to Jersey (with no tax) and brought back by my parents from their trip back down the coast.

These shoes from the Nordstrom Sale.  I mean…..they are perfection.  They look gorgeous with a dress or with cuffed up skinnies. I am in love.

I finished up some bridal duties including the save the date magnets and our website!  I can’t wait to share those both with y’all!  I even played around with my dress while I was down there.

Sunday I got ready for the beach..

Romper old Marc Jacobs///similar save here

Then the rest of the day was spent here

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I needed that relaxation and catching up with a good girlfriend.

I also have a fun giveaway for the local Florida Peeps.  I am giving away two sets of two general admission tickets for the Summer of Rum Fest this coming up Saturday!  You can tweet about it daily for an additional vote!  Winner will be announced on Friday good luck!  You know where I will be this Saturday for sure

Check back this week I’ll have the products I’ve been digging, a true 5 minute makeup routine and other fun things this week! How was your weekend?  xoxoxo

    Beach days are just the best!

    What a perfect weekend!! I love all the goodies you got from the sale and that romper your wearing to the beach- I’m obsessed!! Can’t wait to see the save the date magnets – I’m sure they are amazing!! Happy Monday and I agree – take some PTO to make them into 3 day weekends! xo

    I’m in love with that striped romper, but I would look like like a pear with arms and legs. So freaking cute, though. I have to ask, what do you think of nespesso? Steve and I have the Keurig Vue, but they are discontinuing it and eventually Vue cups won’t be available. Is the Nespresso worth the splurge?

    SO jealous you made it out to the beach this weekend! I still haven’t had a beach trip this year! LOVE that striped romper and your OPI polish! Perfection! And glad you finally got your stash from Jersey! Can’t wait to see those Hunter’s…. actually I kinda can because if I see them it means it’s raining and I rather enjoy our sunshine right now! :)

    SUCH a lovely weekend! So glad you got some good sleep and relaxation in. I’m pretty sure that guy is just suffering from “old man don’t give a damn” syndrome for sure!! Too funny!

  7. August 11, 2014 / 12:06 PM

    Looks like a fun weekend! That nail polish shade is calling my name – it looks right up my alley. Can’t wait to see your save the date magnets and wedding website!

  8. August 11, 2014 / 12:07 PM

    I’m sooooooooooo with you, no more mondays :)!

    Love that nail polish, beautiful color. you are so smart, to send things up to NJ!

    YAY wedding stuff! So very excited for you!

    So jealous of your beach weekend! It’s been raining here all weekend and looks like this week isn’t going to be any better! I agree not having to work Monday’s are the best. I’m currently off today and it’s so nice to be able to get stuff done without feeling like you have to rush because the weekend is almost over! Horrible car parking must be a South Carolina thing too because I see cars parked like that way too often! I think some people got their licenses from Wal Mart!!

    Life as I know it

  10. August 11, 2014 / 12:55 PM

    That polish is soo pretty! xo

  11. August 11, 2014 / 1:16 PM

    Love all your new goodies. Those shoes are fantastic!! I spent the weekend at the beach as well but sadly ended up with sun poisoning. It’s misery. And I was wearing SPF 50!! Isn’t that crazy? Happy Monday!!

  12. August 11, 2014 / 1:21 PM

    HAHA Omgsh that Caddie tho–hilarious! And look at all those goodies–what color Hunters did you get?!


  13. August 11, 2014 / 1:29 PM

    Those heels are amazing and I love that romper in the last picture- so cute and beachy! Looks like you got some other fantastic things- I’ve been wanting a nespresso!

  14. August 11, 2014 / 1:30 PM

    That parking job is hysterical! And love all your tax free haul! Can’t wait to see your reviews and that 5 minute make-up routine! :) xo

  15. August 11, 2014 / 1:44 PM

    oooh i love your romper, so cute! i want to see the hunters asap lady. and those shoes are gorgeous!

  16. August 11, 2014 / 1:51 PM

    Pretty jealous of your Ninja…and that romper is adorable!

  17. August 11, 2014 / 2:05 PM

  18. August 11, 2014 / 2:14 PM

    A beach day sounds fabulous! Sounds like a fun weekend and I’m jealous of your haul! Seriously wish I could take every Monday off work. I think the US just needs to go to a 4 day work week. :)

  19. August 11, 2014 / 2:19 PM

    What I wouldn’t give for a relaxing beach day right now! Good for you for abandoning everything you had to do over the weekend and just enjoying it :) And I totally laughed out loud at the old man park job… ha!

  20. August 11, 2014 / 2:33 PM

    Much needed rest is always necessary. I love tax free shopping, I am so excited to do some damage this week!

  21. August 11, 2014 / 2:36 PM

    Sounds like you had a great relaxing weekend! Look at all those goodies, how fun!

  22. August 11, 2014 / 2:37 PM

    ahahh…oldies driving are the worst!
    That romper looks so cute! And those shoes…love!!

  23. August 11, 2014 / 3:10 PM

    what an awesome weekend! those shoes are to die for- so pretty! and i love that nail color! i cracked up at that old man’s parking job!

  24. August 11, 2014 / 3:27 PM

    Your weekend looks like so much fun! Your parents spoil you! I am totally jealous of those Hunters!

  25. August 11, 2014 / 3:42 PM

    When I worked full-time I wished that every weekend was 3 days. Would be fab. Sounds like a great weekend though! That beach day sounds great and those shoes are hot! That is funny about the old man and his caddy too. Poor guy probably should not be driving anymore… Hope that you’re having a great Monday!

  26. August 11, 2014 / 3:44 PM

    I know the pain of the Caddys/Buicks not even close to being in a parking spot! I’m from Hilton Head and home for a few days and just about every where we go there’s a land yacht taking up a third of the parking lot! Absolute craziness! I can’t wait to hear about what you think of your Ninja blender, I am in desperate need of smoothies in my house.


  27. August 11, 2014 / 3:52 PM

    Looks like you had an amazing weekend! I’m obsessed with that Marc Jacobs romper! Seriously, so so cute! Can’t wait to see your save the dates!!!

    xo, Jen

  28. August 11, 2014 / 4:03 PM

    What a fun weekend and so glad you made it to the beach. I loved following along on the Bloggers Closet! Those Joie shoes are adorable!

  29. August 11, 2014 / 4:15 PM

    I can’t talk – I virtually park the same way everywhere :)

  30. August 11, 2014 / 5:15 PM

    Sounds like a great weekend. The stuff you got looks amazing!

    Great nail polish color and such cute outfits (per use). I want to come drink rum in Florida! Plane tickets included?? ;)

  32. August 11, 2014 / 5:40 PM

    yahh im glad you had a good weekend! i visited my parents too and they spoiled me with lots of good food :) isnt that the best?! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  33. August 11, 2014 / 5:57 PM

    I have got to get that polish, I love it! What a great weekend :) Your new pumps are perfection girl.

  34. August 11, 2014 / 6:14 PM

    I hear you about the PTO, although my work weeks are shorter. But PTO always seems to be more worth it when you use it on a Monday! I love that color of polish – so girly!!


  35. August 11, 2014 / 7:04 PM

    OPI Mod About You is by far the best and most opaque light pink out there! Love it!

  36. August 11, 2014 / 7:48 PM

    loving those shoes from the sale! & you need to do a full review on that ninja. i’ve seen it on tv & wondered if it lives up to the hype??? and GRRRRRRR at people who park like that. makes me wanna take my car & ram them straight in their parking spot.

  37. August 11, 2014 / 8:00 PM

    Ahhhh I love that pink OPI color and I must get it now!!!

    Love your outfits! So fun! I have a Ninja, it is the best! And those shoes! I die!

    And the beach. I am totally jealous of your beach days! I need some more of those in my life ASAP!

  38. August 11, 2014 / 8:18 PM

    Get ready to fall in love with the Ninja. It’s amazing!! The parking job had me cracking up… I’m convinced after 80 you should have to re-take your drivers test to see if it’s still safe for you to be driving.

  39. August 11, 2014 / 9:02 PM

    omg. your shoes though! I need them! Those are just perfect.

  40. August 11, 2014 / 10:47 PM

    What a great weekend!!
    Those Joe’s heels are gorgeous!! Can’t wait to see how you style them!

  41. August 12, 2014 / 1:49 AM

    I want to do all of this please. Especially the spoiled part. That sounds great.

  42. August 12, 2014 / 1:50 AM

    i love that nail polish color! it’s so barbie pink

  43. August 12, 2014 / 4:05 AM

    Ninja!!! Those are the best! :) You look adorable in a romper AND Mondays are the very best day to take PTO in my opinion!

  44. August 12, 2014 / 5:14 AM

    Love the OPI colour and is that park for real? He could not be serious!

  45. August 14, 2014 / 5:02 PM

    Looks like the perfect weekend!! Love those shoes! :) Glad you were able to enjoy some relaxing at the beach and visiting your parents! Oh, and getting some wedding duties done! :)
