Weekend Recap: Date Nights & Heater Lights

Preppy and Pearls: Mint Striped Sweater, Skinny Jeans, Pearls, Tory Burch

Hey all! Hope you guys had a great weekend! First, thanks to all of you who left jokes in the comments on Friday's post. I love them so much! :)

So with Hawaii looming over heads (in a good way), we are itching for vacation. So much so that we planned our weekend to be sort of a mini-vacay. We planned TWO dates nights, got a much needed heater for our deck so we can extend happy hour & cocktail hour a little later AND got in a beach walk.

Friday night we had our first of two date nights and went to a newer local pizza place. For absolutely no reason whatsoever, I felt it was a super preppy pizza night. Pearls, stripes and skinny jeans (see outfit above)...and lots and lots of wine (the bartender's fault - not mine!).

Saturday, we spent the entire day getting a heater for our deck. Yes, an entire day. First a trip to Costco to look at one. Then a trip to Home Depot where we bought the propane and another heater instead. Then we returned that heater and went back to Costco to get the other one. Then we spent a good 1.5 hours putting it together (there were a lot of screws and a lot of plastic). But eventually it came together and we got some good use out of it!

Heater!

Sunday was spent catching up on my favorite Bravo shows (who else is happy Rachel Zoe is back?), having a very successful Lululemon haul (more on that later) and uploading some new necklaces to my Etsy store (coral here - pink here).

Coral Lace Necklace and Bright Pink Lace Necklace

Speaking of necklaces...did any of you see the gorgeous Annie from The Other Side of Gray wearing a raspberry lace necklace last week? If not, check out her post and see more pics here!


Don't you love her Canadian Tuxedo!?! I can't pull it off but she totally did!

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

  1. That was such a smart idea to get the heater for the deck! I need one of those since it's still very chilly here at night.

  3. Sounds like you had a fun weekend! I'm so jealous of your heater for the deck! It would make being outside so much more enjoyable on blustery nights! Also LOVE the pearls and stripes!
