Weekend Edition: Girls Weekend

Happy Memorial Day all!

Memorial Day weekend here in the States is  the unofficial start of Summer.  While that might be true, the weather on Saturday was more like late March! After days of stifling humidity and 80+ degree heat,  a cold front swept in dipped temperatures in the high 50s! Although the weather was less than ideal,  I still went to see “Star Trek: Into Darkness” (LOVED IT!), ran some errands and met up with my girlfriends for dinner at Redstone American Grill.  The chilly  Saturday evening air didn’t stop me from getting a little gussied up  by wearing one of my favorite ASOS maxi dresses.  Dinner was a blast and the food was excellent.  It was great hanging out with Bridgette, Andrea, Kim and Theda.



Dress: ASOS Curve (bought last August)

Jacket: Old Navy

Sandals: Nine West

Bracelet: H&M

On Sunday Latasha, Tamera and I went to Washington DC for the day.  Knowing that we were going to do A LOT of walking, being comfortable was more important that being cute!  While we did walk a lot, we had a great time together. The weather was perfect for a day in Washington DC.    By the end of the day I was completely pooped!



Pants: Talbots

Shirt: Ann Taylor Loft

Jacket: Old Navy

Necklace: Forever 21

Sandals: Steve Madden

Here are some of the  highlights of the day.  If you haven’t been to the Smithsonian Museums definitely put it on your “to do” list.  A day was simply not enough to take in all the museums and multiple exhibits. The next time I go to Washington DC, I’m going to go for a weekend so I can see all that I missed.

How  has  your holiday weekend been going so far?

Have a great day!

    Looks like a fun weekend and I LOVE that maxi dress. (But then, I love all maxi dresses!) Glad you got some girlfriend time. We’re having rain and flooding so we did inside stuff.

      Sorry about the rain & flooding. Hope you and your family were safe & didnt suffer any damage.

    Too hot here for outside activities, so Saturday we went furniture shopping and Sunday we went thrift store shopping. Today we’re staying home, cleaning house, and waiting for the new sofa and chair to be delivered. 🙂

      Hope the weather cools down where you are. It sucks when its too hot outside to do anything. On days like that I do stay inside too.

        It isn’t going to cool down here until maybe Sept or Oct now. 100+ starting Sat for the next few days. I hate summer!!

    You are WEARING the animal print maxi – how did I miss that one?!? It looks perfect with your jean jacket though I think it would be just as nice in the winter with boots and your leather jacket (that’s how I always wear my maxis in the fall/wnter.) Have to put DC in my too visit list – so many places, so little dinero! Great post Ms. G.

      I like the leather jacket & boots idea! I would have never thought to wear the dress in the Fall. Thanks for the ideas!!!

    Looks like a very fun weekend! 🙂 Love that maxi so much.

    Spectacular dress, and I don’t even usually like animal prints but you make it work! I wore a maxi dress with a jean jacket this weekend too.

      See great minds think alike! I used to avoid animal print but now I love it!

    That is one foxy dress! Very nice. I love all your other photos, too, of your weekend. 🙂

      Thank you! I was lucky to get that dress b/c it was sold out for so long.

    Really needed that dress last year, unfortunately my size ran out quickly 🙁
    I love animal print … you have nicely ensembled the dress with that denim jacket to get a nice and relaxed look. Amazing look 🙂

    Please check my post on animal print tomorrow. Cheers
