Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Things are finally settling down after the wedding, moving in and the honeymoon. This weekend, Mark and I were able to hang out and really enjoy each other’s company without having to be attached to our computers getting various work done. We went to Roux Tampa for brunch, one of our favorite NOLA restaurants. It was so enjoyable and since I had some extra time you know I found some unbelievable deals for you this weekend. I have been a little quicker to buy lately, how about you? Summer clothes are just so hard to say no to right? All the fun prints, colors and styles……and they take up less room in the closet. Linking up with the beautiful Biana for her Weekending link up.
Since I got my new lens for my camera I am trying to be more diligent and take it with me instead of snapping iPhone pics. Plus, I am really getting the hang of which settings in manual to use, which is fun to experiment with. The Lightning came back in town (I hope they win tonight!!) side bar, I adore hockey. All those years in a skating rink and my brothers all played, makes me enthusiastic about the game. Also, I love when Tampa gets behind a local team, instead of the transplants all cheering for their home teams. It wasn’t that long ago when the Trop had more Yankees and Red Sox fans instead of Rays. That culture is slowly changing down here.
I snapped some outfit pics down by the water. I am so in love with this skirt. The material doesn’t wrinkle, it has pockets and it’s under $20. Yes please. I always stock up on royal blue pieces so I’m ready when Gator season rolls around. These shoes have been on major repeat. Sold out but I found some similar looks here and here. I am pretty much addicted to mirrored aviators but these pink/red ones seem to be the ones I have been reaching for the most lately.
We headed over to Roux Tampa for brunch. I love New Orleans. We end up going almost once a year, tickets are already booked for October.
Let’s talk about this crab eggs benedict and Marks Shrimp Po Boy (which I eat the other half of, shhhhhh).
How much do you want to cozy up to this bar for a drink? I just want to take pictures of the ceiling inside of Roux Tampa all the time. Isn’t it beautiful??
The rest of the weekend was spent catching up around the house, DIY projects for the blog and grading massive amounts of papers. I agreed to teach two classes this Summer…..why????
Last thing, check out these Rag & Bone perfect dupes! They made me do a complete double take.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Local peeps, have you tried Roux Tampa yet? If so, what are your favorite dishes? Make sure you check back tomorrow for the 5 things I am digging lately. I promise you will want all of them after I’m done doting all over them. Check back then! xoxo
