Weekend Whimsy Vol. 104


A real quick post sine we’re up at the Cape for a long weekend this weekend. We drove up last night after the Hubs got off of work. We’re in for a super relaxed weekend which is the cherry on top of my week off of work. I spent most of the week getting my 401ks in order, really relaxing and getting my work closet in order since my new job is a little more dressy than TT was.

I’m obsessed with this denim jacket, despite me already having one. Do I need another?

Kind of can’t stop thinking about these denim skirts. Especially this one.

One of my favorite brands just did a complete showroom makeover! It’s SO absolutely gorgeous and if you’re in NYC you should definitely stop by and check out the ombre wallpaper in their dressing rooms.

I can’t rock the off-the-shoulder look, but I also can’t stop admiring it on others.

Loving this casual shirt dress with a structured vest look. If my office is trendy chic, this outfit will definitely be making an appearance.

This company has capsule wardrobe for traveling down to a science!

Have you ever thought of using Tatcha products? Here are three must-tries from their lines. The oil cleanser is on my list!

When was the last time you sat in a bean bag? They’re definitely more stylish and would be great in a finished basement or rec room.

For my pregnant or soon-to-be pregnant, your skincare survival guide when you’re pregnant.

Do you like face wipes but cringe when you think about the impact on the environment? Have no fear, there are some eco-friendly ones out there.

The before and after to this hallway is amazing. I definitely need to incorporate some of this since our upstairs hall is so dark.

My thoughts on disconnecting and taking some time.

When you know it’s time to move on.


  • I can’t do off the shoulder, mainly bec my boobs are too big and need to have a completely supportive bra with straps lol. I also don’t like exposing too much of my upper arms. I can pull of a cold shoulder so i can at least wear a bra.

    As for Tatcha, I find the brand overhyped, overpriced and filled with a lot of fragrance which is something I try to avoid in skincare.

    • I just feel like I’m too broad and the shirts cut off at the fattest part of my arm, just below the shoulder… no bueno!

      • oh that too for me as well.

    HI Beck! Thanks for linking to my post :) I didn’t think I could rock the OTS look either but I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe you just haven’t found the right one :)

    • Of course! I haven’t given up hope of finding one, but I’m not holding my breath either ;)
