Well, when you have a full work week every weekend seems special, but, this weekend was especially special. This weekend I got to spend time with my family, reflect, laugh, share stories and make new memories that I can tell my children someday. It was my dad’s birthday and my Aunt’s birthday month so I spend the whole two-day weekend celebrating with food, drinks and laughter. Though this was a special weekend, I opted to wear a comfy, more laid back outfit for a casual birthday breakfast.
Now, ‘laid back’ doesn’t mean that you cannot add some flare. It just means that you are dressed a bit more casual and a little more comfortable than the button-down or up look. For this look, I went with stripes and not in the common colors like navy, red and black…but olive. And, not just olive stripes but asymmetrical stripes. Then, I paired it with some skips (aka skater sneakers) and cropped jeans, which are perfect if you want to show your legs without going for the Nair full short, shorts look.
I have been meaning to post this a while ago as it was during labor weekend, but life happens, right? I usually do not go out much on big holidays, but a good friend had invited me out to a New York traditional attraction, Coney Island & the Boardwalk, which had hosted a fireworks show. I know…I have seen fireworks before but it is a different experience when you are experiencing with a larger crowd, especially those who were as excited as I was. The people were friendly–no pushing or shoveling to see the fireworks. It is an event that is family-friendly, dog-friendly and made for the kids at heart. I had not been My friends and I went out a when on a ride. Aside from the weather going straight turning into fall as the night fell while I was decked out in my summer gear, it was a great night. To see the awesome firework that I saw feel free to check it out on my Google+ page. The footage was too big to upload for this post. It features two of my favorite songs by Katy Perry and P!nk (not together, but that collaboration would be interesting, wouldn’t it?) I hope you all had a wonderful summer and now a great fall.
