Weekend Notes: July 29th.

It’s hard to believe this is the last weekend of July. What is it about being an adult that makes summer fly by quicker than ever?

With Keith opening up a new studio and some projects in the works, we’re kind of winging August and making small travel plans as we go. To be perfectly honest, I’m craving a city/walking trip to Europe so badly. I don’t want to go during peak summer, but sometime in the near future. I want to be able to wear a light jacket in the early morning to sit at a cafe and people watch, walk around for hours, eat amazing food and do some shopping. Whether that’s going to Paris, London or somewhere I’ve never been, I just know that it’s something I almost need to do in the upcoming months. In an ideal world, I’d have one of these trips with the kids and one without. Is this likely to happen? Who the hell knows, but I’m surely putting it out into the universe.

The #1 trick to enjoying family travel.

On that note, the endless pursuit of trying to have the perfect vacation (and ruining it for everyone else).

I had to get this white jumpsuit for some upcoming life events. It reminds me of something Michelle Pfeiffer would wear in Scarface and for anyone that knows me, knows her character is one of my ultimate style icons.

My weekly top from this past week is a good one.

All of a sudden, Jennifer Lawrence and her fabulous outfits have been everywhere. I find myself saving all of her looks and I thought to myself “since when has Jennifer been a style icon?” Here’s why.

    The shoes and the bag are really my favorite! The bag is so small and cute. The shoes are really chic. Under the blazer I would have worn a more low-necked top
