I Want Love In The Afternoon

I ended up chasing my hat not once, but twice through the park yesterday afternoon! The temperatures were hot but there was quite a strong breeze and it blew the hat right off my head and it tumbled across the grass and I literally had to run to catch it. Twice. Between that & the picture taking, I'm sure other park go-ers though I was crazy! Quite a sight to be seen!

I won these beautiful earrings recently in a giveaway through From Skirts to Skillets - the earrings are from BrooklynThread and are so, so pretty! They are the perfect size and I know I will end up wearing these with everything! Yay for giveaways!

The long weekend is almost here! Do other provinces/countries have a long weekend this weekend? It's New Brunswick Day on Monday, which means three glorious days off! Spending a quiet weekend at home, hoping to detox a little, cook & eat healthy meals, get outside & get lots of sleep! Beautiful!

What do your weekends hold?








Vero Moda dress, H&M hat, Brooklyn Thread earrings, SmartSet ring, Aldo Shoes, Unknown belt (Winners)
