The weekend went by in a blur. The sun didn't come out once, and it rained on and off. I came down with a cold on Thursday, so I spent most of my time in PJs, save for the couple hours when I got dressed to catch up with Meg and Christine.

I thought I might use my time in be to get ahead on blogging, but instead I slept, and read a book cover to cover. I've missed reading. I feel like I've been giving it a backseat to everything else, but it was nice to just give myself permission to relax with a cup of tea and a box of tissues and enjoy a book.

Thankfully I'm feeling better today and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

  3. I love a good weekend of relaxation and doing absolutely nothing. The scarf is a lovely touch with this top - they look like they were meant for each other.

  4. Seems like it was raining everywhere this past weekend! Love your accessories and shoes!

  5. Loving this outfit! The scarf is a perfect finishing touch!
    And yes, I need to read more often, I was doing well before my vacation but now I'm slowing down because work is so crazy. But I have 4 books to read and give back to my sister, ha ha...

  6. Glad to hear you're feeling better. I'm loving this casual chic look and the delicate jewelry.

  7. So glad that you are feeling better! When I read that one book like three months ago (that sounds so ridiculous), I really realized how much I also loved reading. It is such a nice escape! Love this scarf and hat!

  8. Even though you didn't feel well and it rained, sounds like you had some good "me" time. I am in love with your top and the way you're wearing your scarf. Gorgeous!

  9. I love a great weekend of me time! Stay looks like such a good book. This is a great simple, chic outfit. I love that scarf!

  10. Sorry you were sick but I'm glad you're on the mend now! I think it's great that you gave yourself a break and just relaxed with a book. Sometimes you just have to take time off from all those "must dos." Love this simple, chic summer look!

  11. What a great outfit - hope you're feeling better.
    I have not read a book in about 4 months…

  12. I know just how you feel about this weekend, although admittedly I don't have a cold as an excuse, just excurciating heat. In Vancouver, air conditioning is a pretty rare thing to find and the temperature has been around 90, which has made doing anything productive relatively challenging. This is a perfect summer outfit as far as I'm concerned, so much so in fact that I'd like to steal all of the pieces I don't already have in my closet to wear it myself, but alas, I'm pretty sure right now I'd be way too hot in it. And who ever thought I would be complaining about that?!

  13. Sometimes a good book is all you need! Thank you for the reminder not to neglect my scarves this summer. Yours is so pretty with your outfit!

  14. I love this! SO happy to know I should still be wearing my scarfs!

  15. This is the perfect summer outfit! I'm loving your scarf and panama hat!


  16. I love that flowy white tank! It's perfect to wear with jeans, and it looks so flattering. I've been looking for a similar one!

    I'm glad you are feeling a bit better. I haven't read a book in quite some time, and I miss it too. Reading is so healthy, but it takes a backseat to blogging which is not the same!

  17. super cute casual look on you and I love these jeans.


  18. this look is the cutest! Love that printed scarf, adds a chic touch

  19. Sounds like such a nice and restful weekend and I love this casual look! Those jeans fit you perfectly!

    Wishes & Reality

  20. Sounds like you did some good relaxing. But don't you know you can't mention that you read a book without telling us what you read? Love this outfit!


  21. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I love reading and wished I had more time to read. I love how you rolled up your scarf this way - such a pretty outfit!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion linkup.

  22. So glad you're feeling better, sweetie. What a fantastic outfit. Kisses

  23. I love how easy breezy this outfit is. After dressing up all week, I sometimes love an easy weekend outfit to run errands etc.

  24. Casual & chic. Love the look.

  25. Glad you are feeling better! I love this casual summer look. Love the scarf! (and necklace of course :-) )

  26. I tried this hat on, I have been searching for a hat like this and I felt like it was too small and the larger was way too large. What size do you have? Lovely look as well!
