Happy Monday lovies! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston, Layers & Lipstick, Style Elixir, and Trend Spin for today's post! First and foremost, I hope you guys like the blog's new look--I am so happy with how it turned out! I was in the mood to sort of "re-brand" everything and this new template was a perfect fit.

This weekend was super fun and relaxing. Friday night, we just stayed in and watched movies because Steven didn't get home from work until late. Saturday, I got to meet up with Rachel and it was so much fun! She is an absolute sweetheart and it's sort of crazy how much we have in common. So glad I got to meet a fellow blogger in NoVA! When I got back, Steven and I went to get acai bowls then we picked up the materials for our dining table. I don't think I mentioned this yet, but Steven is actually going to build our dining table! He's super handy and I was struggling to find one I really loved that wasn't several thousand dollars. This way we can get the look I'm going for (hopefully) for only a couple hundred! I think I'm going to blog the whole process in case any of you guys are moving and like to DIY.

This top from Madewell is just the cutest. It's business in the front and party in the back! I love the structure and silhouette of the blouse but especially love the cut-out back detail. Also, these flats from ASOS are my new favorites. They're only $13 and I love that they're nude with a little bit of a blush undertone. They're also INCREDIBLY comfortable. I highly recommend! Lastly, these Paige Denim dark wash jeans are a new addition and I couldn't be more in love. I was looking for a very dark pair and you guys know I'm all about Paige jeans. They are the perfect fit and length on me and if you're in the market, definitely check them out! You can also find discounted Paige denim at Nordstrom Rack (just a tip)!

  14. I love the updates you've made to the blog, so clean and chic, you did a great job, girlie! I also love your outfit, the white tank is super cute, I love the slit in the back, which is so unexpected. I need to try a pair of Paige jeans, I've heard nothing but great things about them, so they have to be good (thanks for the tip!) and they look SO good on YOU! I would definitely be interested in you sharing the DIY Steven will be doing FOR the table, definitely a better option than purchasing one! I'm glad both you and Rachel had a great time, it's so much fun when you meet someone that shares the same interests, especially blogging, only we can truly understand one another, haha! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the best week ahead!
