This weekend was a godsend. I was just starting to doubt our decision to move to the suburbs when the temperature finally gave a little. My new life advice for anyone who is thinking of leaving a big city to move to the ‘burbs is to wait until the spring or summer so that the first hard months of change are at least soaked in sunshine.
On Saturday night, Anel and I drove upstate to visit our friends’ new home where we took these photos with no jacket required (isn’t that a novel idea?)! My friend Shannon is the most amazing cook and she made us incredible tacos that we ate paired with one too many bottles of wine for one of the most fun nights I’ve had in a long time.
I wore this outfit for the casual evening and both Shannon and my husband commented multiple times on how great these DL1961 jeans looked on me. I don’t know if you can tell from the photos but they are probably the most flattering pair that I own and the thickness of the denim is on fleek (is that actually a thing though?). I kind of need them in every color.
The next day, we visited Tod’s Point beach for the first time which got me seriously excited for summer. We spent the afternoon walking along the beach as we passed kids flying kites and families eating picnics in the sand. It was a magical site that helped me begin to forget about this snowy winter.
Overall, the weekend was incredibly restorative and something that I needed after a rough week in my personal life.
