How was everyone’s three day weekend?! Did you take the weekend to spend time with family and friends, to relax, to be productive, or all of the above? I definitely did a combination of all three. Friday I was a bit productive, Saturday we spent the day at the beach and then out by the beach with my friends, Sunday we went to brunch with my sister and a friend, and then Monday we relaxed! Perfect weekend in my books!

Weekends like this are honestly the best. When you can actually fit in all three of the main weekend goals (being social, productive, and relax) it makes going into the next week like 1000x better. I personally stress out really easily and while some of it is for good reason, a lot of it is just unnecessary stress I place on myself. But feeling like I’m living a balanced life (or at least for a weekend) really helps with my stress and anxiety, so no complaining here!

This dress is great! It’s really flowy since it’s a swing dress so it is great for those days when you just need a bit of extra space, you allll know which days I mean. But it also manages to look really nice as well, especially paired with gold accessories to dress it up a bit. I don’t think I could get away with it with heels but people who are shorter will have no issue at all. I’m 5’9″ for reference.

I have been living in these shoes since I bought them. Every summer I try to buy a nicer pair of flat sandals that can be worn with dresses, to work, but also still with casual jeans to run errands. Basically just a pair of upgraded flipflops that I feel acceptable to go anywhere in. Last year I bought this pair and I’m still wearing them this summer but I wanted to add a nice metallic in and this gold pair really struck my eye. They’re super simple but the scallop detailing adds such a pretty and feminine touch. Plus gold is such a wonderful neutral that I highly recommend everyone getting a pair. You don’t realize how much it goes with until you have them! Gold sandals are also dressy enough if you want to wear flat sandals to a summer wedding, which with a lot of weddings on grassy venues they are a huge plus to have! Plus I love them with this particular dress because navy and gold together is so nautical and summery! Basically gold with any navy pieces is amazing!
