Weekending – Tampa Style

Happy Monday dolls!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  This weekend we were home and took advantage of some fun local events and restaurants.  I was off on Friday and ran a bunch of errands.  If you followed my Instagram stories you saw that my morning started off not as planned.  I had to get my license and registration renewed…..the joys of my upcoming birthday.  Well, the first one was closed for renovation, starting the exact day I went.  Lovely…..so three hours later at the other one, I am the proud owner of a new license picture and a two-year registration.  I will say at least my picture is better now that it was one I first had it taken when I was 18.  After that, I met my friend Julie over at a great new lunch spot in St. Pete called Freshii.  It is a healthy and quick lunch spot.  I got the Oaxaca bowl and added chicken.  It is a little on the pricey side but had great flavors and super fresh.


I wore this adorable peplum top with these white skinnies.  The exact color is limited in sizes but they just came out with new color combos here.  I know they are pricey but seriously, they are the only white jeans that are actually flattering.  If you can find these Banner sandals by Joie grab them.  They went on sale and sold out so quickly.  They are so comfortable.  Just make sure to size up a little bit, I went with a 9.5 or 39.5.


Saturday morning I woke up and headed to barre class.  I really tried to hit the 2o classes in 30 days but with the move, it proved a little more difficult.  I’m trying to stick to a solid 3 classes a week with a few little at home workouts thrown in.  I chatted about these leggings last week and I’m still totally digging them.  The capri leggings are super breathable, I love the long mesh leggings and this tank.


That night Mark, myself and a few friends headed over to a Beer Fest over at the Tampa Theatre.  I’ve never been there before and what a pretty venue.  The theater was built in 1926 and currently is being used for movies and events.  I have been to quite a few of these beer fests in Tampa and this is the first one that you could actually breathe at.  It wasn’t overly crowded, there was plenty of good food and lots of samples.  I also liked that there were plenty of places to sit and get off your feet to enjoy the bevs.  It was so dark in there I apoligize for the picture quality.


I wore this denim dress.  It definitely runs big so make sure to size down.  It’s insanely comfy.  These sunnies are $65 and the “It” sunglasses of the Summer.


Sunday morning I was up and ready to get to barre.  Then, followed by the Home Depot, Lowes, and other various home outing places.  We weren’t ready to retreat for the rest of the weekend so we walked over to Roux for brunch.  I love our walkable neighborhood!


I spent the rest of the weekend getting ready for the week with blogging, Instagram planning, and finishing off grading.  This was definitely a great mix weekend of fun and work.  I will say we have plenty of boxes left to unpack but they will wait for us right?  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Can you believe June is basically over?!!?  This Summer is flying by!  We just booked a trip to Boston for our birthdays in July.  I can’t wait to squeeze Biana and Christina up there.  Do you have any Summer travels planned?  I hope you had a great weekend!

    What a fun weekend, and it looks like you had perfect weather for it all, too. Hitting up all the home improvement stores on a Sunday definitely make you sound like a homeowner now, lol. :)

  11. So good to spend a weekend home and around town! I’m sure the house projects will keep you busy but it’s nice to get out and have lunch with a friend or go out for brunch on Sunday…both places look amazing! Love LOVE the white distressed jeans!
