I hope you guys had a great weekend! I started my day today with a gentle yoga class, then Ben and I babysat for a friend (a pre-schooler and an 8 month old). It was fun, but also a bit exhausting:)

This is my outfit from yesterday. It was a beautiful day and the dogs enjoyed getting out for their walks. We got some last minute stuff done before our vacation (haircuts, etc.) and we met up with some friends for drinks/dinner. We ended up staying out a bit too late. I definitely needed my morning caffeine today!

I recently bought this blouse from the Have a Cute Day blog sale. I'm not sure how old it is, but I don't ever remember seeing it online/in-store. It's made by Odille and it has the cutest little lemons on it.

Top: Anthropologie
Tank: J. Crew

I had a work function/party this evening and they had a few "celebrities" signing autographs there. I didn't know who most of them were, but I did recognize Seth Aaron from Project Runway. I haven't seen that show in awhile, but I did watch a few episodes during the season he was on. Here we are with one of his recent outfit creations:

Ben and I are busy planning our trip to Paris (coming up and the end of the month!). We are going to keep it simple and mostly just explore the city, experience the culture, and see where the wind takes us. We have seen all of the big attractions, so this time around we are looking forward to enjoying a less "touristy" trip. Suggestions/advice welcome:)

Happy spring!

We had a beautiful weekend here in Portland. The sun came out and it finally feels like spring has arrived!

I hope you indulged in lots of high quality chocolate this weekend:)
