Antique Finds

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.

Casual Weekend Chic

Happy Friday! Today I thought I would share my weekend look. This outfit is pretty much what you can find me wearing on any given weekend if the temps are a little on the cooler side. The layers are perfect for our ever changing Colorado weather.

Pants – Love these leggings! Everyone raves about them for a reason and I think they are a must have! I am wearing a size medium.

Jacket – I have had this jacket forever, and it is a closet staple. I find myself reaching for it with almost every outfit, it is so versatile. Mine is real leather and had held up so well. It is also surprisingly warm. I can wear it to and from the office in the snow and still stay pretty warm. Real leather jacket optionFaux leather jacket option.

Shirt – Oh the chambray shirt! Why is it so hard to find one that is the perfect color and fit?! This one from H&M is almost perfect but I am still on the hunt for one that is just right for me.

Shoes – OK I love these shoes! They look good with everything! I love being able to throw them on and be cute and comfy. Just beware that there is a break in period (they tore up my heels when I first got them).

Have a good weekend!

Ice Castles

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.)
