Weekending – Jetting Off Again

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Monday.  You are not seeing things.  This space of mine is getting a big upgrade/update!  I have switched over to wordpress.  Please bear with me as the OCD person in me continues to tweak and change the design….it is still in the very early stages.  I love all the plugins that is such a huge difference with wordpress that I have already noticed and I think the pictures look a lot crisper and brighter!  If you still land here with my old blogspot page make sure to update to https://meetat-thebarre.com Linking up with Biana and Meghan!

Mark and I were off again this weekend!  This time we actually stayed in the state of Florida.  We headed over to his parents house on the other coast to get some visiting in and some work done on my baby car.  On the way down we stopped by Cakes by Ron who made our wedding cake and cupcakes.  Since Mark’s dad did not get get a chance go try the cake the night, of we got his own for him.



After we dropped off my car we headed over to Morton’s for happy hour.  I just got these shoes up in New York and I am obsessed.  They go with everything and no lie the most comfortable heels I have ever worn.  The leather is so soft and the foot area has great padding.


Dress Charlie Jade old similar here + here  |  heels (on sale!) here obsessed with this pair! | Purse LV Neverfull here |  Mirror Sunnies here |

Trust me I needed one of these after this week.




Got to take this badboy for a swing.  My father in law said this could be our child’s car when they turned 16.  Even though it doesn’t have airbags.  70’s Corvette for a 16 year old?  Clearly he never read this story.  I paired those above shoes with a vintage 70’s leather suede skirt from Mark’s mom and the end result was fantastic.




Eat way too much this weekend.  Salads and water all week long I’m telling you!


The rest of the weekend was spent trying to figure out how to install lots of new plugins and making a running list for my blog designer (sorry girl!) plus trying to get ahead for this week.  Also tried my hand at finally baking chickpeas (recipe to follow this week).  So good!



I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  xoxoxoxo

Follow me on!

  7. April 13, 2015 / 12:22 PM

    what a fun weekend! and congrats on the move to wordpress! FYI you can set up a redirect so your old url forwards to the new one. This is especially helpful with any old pins etc.

  8. April 13, 2015 / 12:36 PM

    YES TO WORDPRESS!! Finally website soul mates haha. I am LOVING the new design!! Also looks like you had a fab weekend girl! Cheers to having fun while staying in town. Also can’t wait for that recipe! xo

    I have been SO curious about baking chickpeas–I cannot wait for your recipe!

    What an awesome car! And yeah… first car for a teenager? Uhh… no. Haha

    Have a great week, lady!

  12. April 13, 2015 / 1:06 PM

    Yay for the blog facelift! Love it! You kinda make me want to make the move to WordPress… then I remember what a pain in the butt it would be and how expensive it is to do it and then I realize, I’m just going to stick with Blogger haha! Glad you had an awesome weekend with the in-laws and by the way, now I want a mojito! Happy Monday love!

  14. April 13, 2015 / 1:22 PM

    The new site looks great!! Definitely has a different feel to it but I like it :)

  22. April 13, 2015 / 3:18 PM

    Such a clean look …
    but I’m not sure if it will automatically work on Bloglovin’ but I don’t see your new address over there.. it just takes me back to the blogger site link.

  23. April 13, 2015 / 3:34 PM

    Loving the new look gurlie! I’ve thought about wordpress for a while now, but am so afraid to make the switch :-P

  24. April 13, 2015 / 4:15 PM

    Yayyy so exciting!! I love this new blog look and your whole new space :) That Corvette is awesome – my husband would LOVE it! Have a great week.

  25. April 13, 2015 / 4:19 PM

    I LOVE the new look. It is perfect. We are doing our business site/blog on wordpress. Which will hopefully be up and running in the next couple months! xo

  26. April 13, 2015 / 5:54 PM

    That’s amazing you all booked it to NYC recently just for fun! Love that. Your new site is looking awesome, girl. As is that profile pic! Excited to see the final looks!

  27. April 13, 2015 / 6:05 PM

    The new site is looking so good! Selfishly I’d love to see a rundown of the plugins you use and love sometime in the future – it would make things a heck of a lot easier for if/when the transition happens for me! I was so jealous of all your outings during the winter – the weather is finally nice enough to enjoy time outside here, so I’m looking forward to get out of hibernation!! P.S. You are looking AMAZING in your sidebar photo!

  28. April 13, 2015 / 7:37 PM

    New blog designs are so exciting!!! But super stressful. lol It looks great so far! And how awesome was the Florida weather this weekend?! Even with a little rain it was gorgeous.

  29. April 13, 2015 / 8:48 PM

    Yay for new blog designs! Making the switch from Blogger to WP last year was the best blog decision, ever!

  30. April 13, 2015 / 9:02 PM

    I hope you have a smooth transition to WordPress. I switched about a year ago and while I love the functionality of WordPress, it was hard to get used to! I’m still learning new things every day but glad to have other bloggers I can chat with about it! The new design is so classy and pretty!

  31. April 13, 2015 / 9:19 PM

    Whoohoo! I’m likely making the switch later this year… It’s just so daunting! But Blogger has really been driving me nuts lately – so limited with what I can do! And the plugin situation is awful. Anyway, your weekend looks like a blast! I’m right there with you on the salads and water diet…

  32. April 13, 2015 / 11:05 PM

    Those shoes are fabulous! Baked Chickpeas, sounds really good. Congrats on moving to WordPress!!

  33. April 13, 2015 / 11:07 PM

    LOVING the new design, girlfriend! It’s so chic and clean.
    Also loving this post – those pictures are incredible and you look GORGEOUS as always and with all the ways you styled your gorge heels. That is hysterical about the car! Totally sounds like something my dad would say (he offered to teach me to drive stick on his M5, which was too much pressure for my anxious self). You look great in it! :)
    Happy start of the week – I’m with you on the salads and water after a food filled weekend :)

  34. April 13, 2015 / 11:15 PM

    Love the new look lady! Hahaha… the seventies corvette reminds me of growing up in the Motor City when everyone drove Corvettes, Trans-Ams, Camaros and Mustangs! Vintage clothing yes please!!!

  35. April 14, 2015 / 12:43 AM

    congrats on the wordpress change girly, moving up in the world ;) those shoes look amazing on you, and yeah i should think maybe any child of yours should stay away from cars until 21? haha jk!

  36. April 14, 2015 / 1:38 AM

    Sounds like a great weekend. That’s so sweet that you got his dad his own cake since he couldn’t try any of yours.

  37. April 14, 2015 / 1:42 AM

    I loveee your new design! Especially your photo on the side, it’s gorgeous!
    OK, so tell me (or please do a post about) your switch to WordPress! Are you happy? Who did it for you?

  38. April 14, 2015 / 2:42 AM

    Love love the new update! I have been thinking about moving over, but I’m too lazy to do it. Haha. Those shoes are to die for, friend! You’ve paired them up so perfectly with your outfits!

  39. April 13, 2015 / 11:25 PM

    Love the new design! And yay for WordPress! Looks like such a fun weekend! I’m loving your Charlie Jade dress. :)

  40. April 13, 2015 / 11:59 PM

    Yay for making the switch! It looks fantastic!! You will be so happy you did! Sounds like a fantastic weekend. That car is awesome!

  41. April 14, 2015 / 8:51 AM

    Hey girl! so sorry I’ve been MIA. Sometimes life gets nutty. Anyway, the blog looks amazing, you look amazing. I adore your dress and hat!
    Can’t wait to catch up on your posts.

  42. April 14, 2015 / 4:26 PM

  43. April 15, 2015 / 11:36 AM

    I really love the new look. Did you have someone design it or did you do it yourself? It looks amazing!!

  44. April 16, 2015 / 8:03 PM

    Looks like a fabulous weekend! How thoughtful of you to get your FIL a cake from the same place as your wedding since he missed out on it! I would die if my child was given that vehicle for his 16th birthday! :)
