Weekending & Wants

Monday, August 3, 2015

This weekend was very low key which was super nice after going non-stop recently. We wanted to get out and play tennis and take some neighborhood walks but it rained 90% of the weekend. Unfortunately, we've hit the time of year when it rains every day in Florida and the quick afternoon storms aren't leaving in the evening.

During lunch on Friday, I ran to a local consignment store that has a lot of designer items (hello $20 Lilly Pulitzer!) and they actually had some good finds! I didn't want to buy anything but I've been wanting to get a military-style jacket for the fall. I found a Guess jacket for $16 that is thin and had some cute details so I snagged it.

Ignore my angry face - I wasn't mad lol

Friday, I came home to a package from my dad & sister. They got us some goodies from their recent trip to Europe. They got Stephen and I some nice scarves from Scotland and Caroline was sweet and grabbed me some postcards of the royals. Now I can't wait for fall so I can wear my new scarf and jacket.

Another item I'd like to get for the fall are a good pair of booties. My sister got the best pair last fall from Old Navy and I'm kicking myself for not grabbing a pair as well. I know it's not fall yet but I'm starting to look for a cute and affordable pair. I found this pair at Target Saturday but I'm going to wait a while to make sure Old Navy doesn't bring back the pair that I loved. 

Ignore my awkward squat, I was too tall to get a picture

These are the adorable booties Caroline got from Old Navy

Tonight, I plan on catching up on last night's Bachelor in Paradise premiere. Did anyone watch it last night? Was it good?

Linking up with Biana


  1. Love your treats from their trip! We were hooked last night watching Bachelor in Paradise – the entertainment looks like it might make up for the bore of this past season.

  2. It looks like you got some great finds! I think low-key weekends are perfect!

  3. I love that jacket! I am dying for a black jacket like that. Also, anything with Princess Kate on it is perfection!

  4. $16 for a military jacket!? Sounds like a great find!!

  5. love those items, I've been looking for a green cargo jacket for the fall but it is still 100000 degrees here in bama so I just can't mentally shop for the fall yet. Yes, I watched BIP and it is a trainwreck so I can't wait ha!

    not a mom

    1. I hear ya! The only reason I snagged it is because it was a consignment store but that's my feeling with the booties... it's too soon. Can't wait to watch it tonight!
