Fresh Air

(sweater: J. Crew, dress/tights/belt: Target, boots: Ollio)

My bf's mom came up for the weekend, I didn't take any pics but it was really fun showing her around the city! We ate plenty of food, showed her some local spots, saw a lazer show,  and went to a comedy club so it was jam packed! Also moms are the best because they leave your apartment more clean then when they arrived hahaha.  

Sunday me and my bf went to the local arboretum and it was such a nice, relaxing way to close the busy weekend. It is so easy to get distracted by the all the things going on around us so it was really nice to just be outside and walk around in the fresh air and peace and quiet! With all the goings on of every day life there are some days I don't even get outside for more than 10 minutes, and it is funny to think that nowadays you have to almost go out of your way to spend quality time outdoors! I definitely plan on doing things like this more often!

  9. Love your backpack! I haven't been to the arboretum yet, but it's on my to do list for sure. I know what you mean about having to make time to go outside, between work and sleep you really have to be determined to do it!

  11. I don't think I'll ever get over how cool your hair is. It even matches your bright red cardigan, I love that you also have such a cool pair of edgy sneakers, they're something that I definitely need!

  19. My boy and some friends told me that we don't always have to document what's happening or else, we don't get to enjoy those moments. True.

    I can't wait to be going outdoors too. And the beach!
