And Reg is planning on popping around town, enjoying the last bit of summer in the city. xo.

Can we talk about those dope sneakers for a moment? We’re feeling the spring closet itch, we want new everything – shoes, skirts, dresses, bags – you name it, we want it. Something about this crisp spring air invites the need for new clothes, ha. But we’re also trying to be good with our money, so we gotta stay strong, think about inventing new outfit combinations.

What’s goin’ on this weekend? We don’t really have a whole lot planned, and we are totally okay with that. Making some dinner, watching a movie (or three), and just embracing some down-time sounds great. We’re not huge sports people, but we’ll likely find a way to get some game-viewing (and chip eating) time in there.

Have a happy weekend! xo
