Another Monday, another post! This past weekend we were adulting really hard and went to the 2018 Colorado Garden & Home show. Our backyard is literally dirt so we thought we would check out the show to hopefully get some ideas on what to do with our dirt patch.
I would suggest going into the show with something in mind that you want to check out. There are a ton of vendors and it is easy to get overwhelmed or just lost in all the stuff. We knew that we were really interested in seeing artificial turf for our front and back yard so that is what we were on the hunt for. I really wanted to get some information from vendors so that I can get people to come out and get us some quotes. We were in luck and there were a few vendors that we were able to get information from.
There were really cool displays that made you want that dream backyard. I thought it was cool and a fun way to spend a couple of hours over the weekend.
For my outfit I kept it simple. I literally wore that camo jacket all weekend (similar one), AG legging jeans (cut the hem at the bottom to get my desired length), and my Tieks.
Have a good week!
Happy Monday! I got lucky and have the day off for Presidents Day so Charlie and I are snuggled up on the couch trying to stay warm while watching Will and Grace re-runs 🙂
Before the chilly weather rolled in G and I decided to head out to Broadway street to check out some of the antique shops. We still need some wall decor in our house so I thought it would be fun to check out the antique shops to see if we could find some unique pieces.
We just parked on Broadway and started walking down the street to check out the shops. Since it was Sunday most places were closed. They hold strange hours but I would suggest going on a Saturday. Some places were appointment only. We ended up going to about 3 different shops and all had tons of stuff so we got our fix of antiques.
We unfortunately did not find anything for the house, but we had so much fun looking around. I could spend all day in these shops if I could. I would highly recommend stopping by if you have a free afternoon. Broadway also has lots of coffee shops and breweries that you can stop into for a drink.
Outfit details: jeans, shirt, shoes, bag
Hope everyone has a great weekend! G and I decided to venture up to Dillon, Colorado to check out the Ice Castles. We were watching the local news one night and heard about these castles made out of ice and they looked awesome.
Make sure you purchase your tickets in advance from their website ($16 per person for adults) and you will be asked to pick a time slot. Unfortunately we had a minor car issue (shout out to the guy that pulled us out of the snow!) and didn’t make it there until a half hour after our allotted time. Luckily they were really relaxed with ticket times and they let us right in.
The castles were pretty crowded for a Sunday evening but still really cool to see. We got there at dusk which I thought was the perfect time to go because you got to see it in the light and when they turned on the colored lights in the dark. Plus it was really cold so I’m glad we were there when we still had some sunlight.
They are open until February 24th so you still have time to go and I highly recommend it. There were lots of adults without kids so it’s not just a kid thing (they even have an adult ice slide that G was very into). They have other locations around North America so check out the website to see if they are near you.
Jacket (mine is from J Crew Factory but here is another option), Jeans, Shoes (so warm!), Sweater (mine is old from h&m but here is a similar option), Hat (mine is from Nordstrom Rack but here are some options. I highly recommend a cashmere one to make it less itchy.)
Here is a round up of my work outfits from the past week. My office is very casual so really anything except for ripped jeans and shorts go. My personal favorite look this week was my striped t-shirt and bell bottom jeans. I felt so cute and Paris chic!
Outfit 1: Jeans, Similar Shirt (mine was from Nordstrom Rack purchased a while ago), Puff Shoes (on major sale but they are not very comfortable, there is a break in period).
Outfit 2: Shirt, Shoes (on sale and weatherproof, highly recommend!).
Outfit 3: Dress (mine is from The Limited from a while ago and need a new one. This looks like a good option), Necklace, Tights, Shoes.
Outfit 4: Shirt (couldn’t find the exact one online but I bought it in the store), Jeans, Shoes (bought on Poshmark so check there first).
