Over the weekend

Jacket: Forever 21 (19.00) Dress: TjMaxx (24.00) Tights: TjMaxx (4.99) Shoes: Forever 21 (13.00) Sunnies: Fred Flare (11.00)
(Chris does not like to have his photo taken)
How was everyone's weekend? I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday in particular, it was 74 degrees! So amazing! Chris and I went out for breakfast and then spent the day in Rockport, which is just 20 minutes north of us. Warm weather always makes me thoroughly appreciate living where we do, I love being able to walk to the beach in the summer or drive north to appreciate even prettier beaches. Those of you who have never been to Rockport may recognize it from somewhere else: it was where Disney filmed the movie "The Proposal"! Chris and I did the usual Rockport things: walked down Bearskin Neck (where all the shops are), took photos of Motif No. 1, and people watched. I took advantage of the warm weather to wear a new spring dress and jacket, though I wasn't quite ready to show my bare legs! Chris and I took a short hike up this seaside cliff which overlooked the whole harbor, it was beautiful! But windy! I'm so glad we got out of the house too, since it cooled down considerably on Sunday and today. I think it'll be cold for the rest of the week.

Sunday was much quieter as Chris had to work and I had some catching up to do after being sick all last week. I want to say a big thank you to everyone who left me get well soon comments, it meant a lot to read them all!

have a good night!

Love the outfit, as always! Glad to hear you're feeling better. I'm still trying to figure out if I have allergies for the first time ever, or a weird cold.

Rockport is one of my favorite places around here! They have the best clam chowder.

I love your dress and shoes! It looks so pretty where you live - I'm so jealous of your 74 degrees! I can't wait until we get those temps!

Andi said...

I agree - having 70 degree weather on Saturday was amazing! I was so sad to wake up to overcast skies and drizzle this morning... I keep running into the wind factor at the beach, too! This is a great, springy outfit.
