Long Dorky Weekends… Long Gorgeous Dresses…

May 28, 2012

Sugar Lips Floral Maxi Dress

Dress-  Floral Maxi Sugar Lips  /  Necklace-  Tiny Devotions Mala Beads /  Sunglasses-  Coach  /  Shoes – Miz Mooz Wooden Sandals from HauteLook

I spent the 3-day Memorial weekend slowing down.  After two busy years of graduate school, nose to the grindstone – I feel like my soul is finally waking up as it’s warming up here in Chicago.

Miz Mooz & Day Satchel from H&M

 I got to sport my brand new beautiful floral maxi dress I got from Sugar Lips Apparel with a pair of wooden sandals from Miz Mooz I’ve been holding onto since I snagged them on HauteLook clearance last winter.  I felt bohemian chic…and I wish I had more pictures of this gorgeous dress but I had some camera issues! (Don’t worry, I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this dress so often you’ll be sick of it!)

Long Dorky Weekend

 Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita  / Ralph plopped in front of the AC  /  Gorgeous hot pink peonies on a neighborhood walk  /  Stocking up on junk food before playing Epic Mickey on Wii (nerd alert!)

I spent the weekend taking it slow, catching up on everything I’ve put off… meandering around the neighborhood, playing video games, catching shows & eating bad junk food but totally loving it!

I also caught a comedy show over at Second City, had to buy rescue flip flops (apparently wooden sandals are hard to break in…they like to break you despite their all-around gorgeousness) and got to spend some time with friends and Ralphie-pug.

Oh…and my inner geek came out.  I finally caught up on an awesome Martha Beck book and got to play Epic Mickey on Wii (I’ve had the game for almost a year with no play time!).  I also realized that another season of My Fair Wedding on Netflix!  That being said I’ll be in the air-conditioned cave all week swooning over David Tutera’s amazing taste and applying for my dream job in amazing new cities…more on that lata 😉

So, what did you do this weekend?

    Very little, actually, but it’s just flown by. I’m just coming back to life after working straight through from the week before and diving into travel for work on Saturday through this Saturday. Spent yesterday marinating on the sofa and some of today as well, watching a movie and catching up on much needed rest. 🙂

      Marinating….haha, love it! I totally did that this weekend so it’s a good word for it. I think 3 day weekends are great for adventure but they’re also perfect for high-activity people like ourselves to rest!

    P.S. Two thumbs up on the outfit!

  3. My weekend was about the same, and I loved every minute of it! I’ve been on the go non-stop for a few months too so it was nice to lounge around. Plus I’m starting grad school in the fall so I’m trying to take advantage of every minute of spare time and relaxation I have left!

    Love the dress 🙂

    I’m still trying to recover from my weekend, not because of hangovers or anything like that but for lack of sleep. We went to a board game convention & geeked it up with some friends at our favorite local board game shop. Then had a family birthday to celebrate Sunday. I was thinking that we might get to relax a bit on my extra day off, but we had an impromptu cook out. Oh well, at least we have a short week this week. The weekend is just around the corner & maybe (crossing my fingers) I’ll get to be lazy for once.

    Sounds like my kind of weekend. Its nice to just give back to you and relax. I had a similiar weekend. Once the new apartment was scrubbed down and unpacked. I read books played wii, wathed movies and went camping. I love the shoes and bag. It looks like they were meant to be together.

    Good lord that strawerry margarita sounds amazing right now, but there’s still three days left until the weekend, unfortunately. In any case, that dress is also beautiful–I’m glad these these long dresses seem to be making a comeback
