Weekend Recap and Barbour + Stripes

Barbour Beadnell

Anyone else need a weekend from their weekend? I worked three consecutive 12-hour days from Thursday-Saturday for my 9-5 and have so much respect for people who are consistently on their feet for that many hours a day –it’s exhausting!

While laying on the couch all day Sunday was tempting, I forced myself to get to Orange Theory before we headed to the White House fall garden tour (if you’re reading this earlier on Monday, check out my Insta story…it was beautiful!). I was planning on having a really productive afternoon at home right after we got back from the tour, but was craving a good burger and hadn’t eaten lunch so a mid-afternoon trip to Le Diplomate was in order. We went home after “lunch” and spent the rest of the day reorganizing some furniture in our bedroom which and sorting through a bunch of stuff that we’re putting in our new media console. It arrived last Wednesday and is gorgeous–it’s a vintage lacquered piece from One of a Find Charleston so I can’t link to it directly, but will share photos as soon as we get things set up.

I sort of overbooked myself this week which was poor timing with the blog relaunch I mentioned last week, but I have a ton of ideas I’m mainly just excited to execute and share with you guys. If you’re a blogger, you know how much goes on behind the scenes of a site redesign…luckily that part is going to be as simple as it can be, but I’m also renaming the site and switching host companies. I’m hoping to have things up and running next Monday so there won’t be a new post on Wednesday!

And about this top…how pretty is it? You know I’m a big Duffield Lane fan, and I love their twist on a basic striped top. The material is very soft and on the thicker side–thanks to the tailored fit, it’s definitely one of those desk-to-drinks/office-to-weekend pieces that would work for most office dress codes. I’m wearing an XS, so definitely size down. It paired really well with my new Barbour, which has already served me well thanks to the few precious days of fall weather we’ve experienced so far. I’ll go into more detail about it in another post, but really can’t recommend Barbour jackets enough (there’s a reason they’re one of my “closet staples”)–in the meantime, if you’re considering getting one of your own, let me know if you have any questions! Tuckernuck has an amazing Barbour style guide so definitely check that out, too.
