Life generally has a nice ebb and flow to it, but what happens when the ebb doesn’t come back to relieve you of the constant flow? Suddenly you’re drowning in a sea of to-dos, missed plans and billowing anxiety.
Add the early arrival of your first niece and any order you were trying to instill in your life goes straight out the window – with good reason, of course.
I had to remind myself last week that I can do anything, but I can’t do everything. The tide of life doesn’t always play nice and there are factors you can’t control. Sometimes it’s best to release the reigns and give yourself time to regroup.
All this to say, I took a mini hiatus from the blog to reorganize, recharge and love on my sweet niece Camilla.
I’ve been combating my jam-packed summer schedule with laid back neutrals that offer up maximum comfortability (all while taking time to decompress any chance I can get).
These distressed denim shorts are an investment, but they’re so good that they’re the only pair I own. Match them with the softest nude flats – which will wear well as we move into fall – and a breezy cami and you’re set.
We spent the past few days wandering the Farmers’ Market, trying out a new-to-us pizza spot, celebrating a birthday with Pete’s coworkers and catching up with the fam.
A weekend well spent brings a week of content (quite literally, when it comes to blog posts). Monday, I’m ready for you!
