My Midweek Recap
Hi everyone! Welcome to my second midweek recap!
My Monday started off like most of my days: running errands! It was extremely hot out this past Monday so I wanted to stay cool, but look cute at the same time, of course. I wore these shorts from JCrew. I just love this pattern! I love it so much that I went and bought the matching top! Both the shorts and the top are on sale right now! While I was out, I obviously had to stop and grab Starbucks! I am one of those people who can’t really go a day without Starbucks (sad, I know). My go-to drink is a venti non-fat iced vanilla chai! I think I’m addicted. Although, this past weekend my boyfriend’s sister convinced me to try it with cinnamon dulce instead of vanilla, and I must say, it was delicious! After I got back from running errands, I wanted to take full advantage of my day off. So I put on my bathing suit and my Sun Bum sunscreen and relaxed by the pool for a few hours. Later on that day, I went to my boyfriend’s place to watch True Detective and hang out for a few hours. I wore this dress from JCrew which I am loving this summer! To find out more details about this dress, check out my post here! For those of you who watch True Detective, what are your thoughts of this season?? Let me know in the comments! We also took a walk to Dairy Queen and celebrated National Ice Cream Day one day late! Better late than never, right??
My Tuesday was not nearly as eventful or fun as my Monday was. This is because I spend the majority of my Tuesday’s and Thursday’s in a classroom. Again my morning started with running errands. I wore my JCrew denim shorts with a Ralph Lauren button down (similar here). I realized that it was still so hot out so when I got home I changed my outfit into something lighter for class. I kept on the shorts and changed into this JCrew tank (on major sale!!). So I sat in class from 1-3:30 and had a little break until my next class. I ate my lunch in my car (how sad, I know) and decided to capitalize on the break to take a photo of my favorite Bauble Bar bracelets (similar here) because I thought they looked good with my shirt! My next class was supposed to go from 4:30-7:10 but we got out at 6:15! Does anyone else love when that happens?? I definitely do. I was excited to get out early because my mom, my sister, and I were going out to dinner with my cousin and aunt to celebrate my cousin’s 21st birthday! We ate at 1020 Post in Darien, it was delicious! I ordered French Onion Soup and some sort of chicken dish (I forget what it was called!) The mashed potatoes were SO good, and I of course ate like 5 pieces of bread (what can I say, carbs are my weakness!) I wore a maxi dress from JCrew (I got it last year) and my Jack Rogers Sparkle Sandals. It was a fun night celebrating!
Well today has been another uneventful day (except for one thing that I’ll mention at the end). I worked today from 10-2, not a bad shift at all! I wore my new cargo pants from JCrew and let me tell ya, they are SOO comfy! I want to wear them everyday from now on! They come in a few colors and I plan on buying the other ones! If you plan on buying them, I suggest buying a size smaller than you usually are. They run a little big! I paired the pants with my chambray shirt from JCrew and my Michael Kors sandals. After work I stopped at Sephora to buy a few skincare items that I am almost out of. I also went to Starbucks (surprise, surprise!) for an afternoon pick me up. Now I am sitting here enjoying my Starbucks and writing this post! Tonight I plan on doing some school work and relaxing. I have a long day ahead tomorrow–work 8:30-12:30, class 1-4, and class again 4:30-7:10.
And I said that when I hit 500 Instagram followers I’d be hosting a giveaway. Well today’s the day! Check out my instagram, @simplylaurenrose, later today to see what the rules for the giveaway are!
