Solo Weekend

This past weekend, everyone and their mother was out of town.  Except for me, of course.  

I started the my ridin' solo weekend by getting to the gym bright and early (I'm still proud of this), showered/washed my hair (even MORE proud of this), and got dressed for a day of "me" time.

I browsed in Barnes & Noble for a few hours (mostly in the travel section) and ended up purchasing Rick Steves' Europe Through the Back Door and Girls in White Dresses, which was on clearance for $5.  I've seen it on a few reading lists, but I'd love some feedback on Girls in White Dresses if you've read it!

Since Barnes & Noble is right next door to Ann Taylor Loft, I stuck my head inside.  The entire store was 40% off (although, when is it not?), so I tried on a few things for kicks.

The Loft's Lou & Grey line really, really impressed me.  The quality is higher than the rest of the store, in my opinion.  L&G is usually not included in the Loft's sale promotions, but it was my lucky day.  I ended up leaving with the striped tee for around $10 or so.

I made a few more random stops, and then 5:30PM I was ready for dinner.
Yes, I have the eating habits of a 75 year old. 

For dinner, I had fro-yo (more accurately, toppings with a side of fro-yo), microwaved popcorn, and Guinness... because I'm an adult and I do what I want, okaaaaay?

The rest of the night was spent cuddling with the cutest pup in the world and reading.

So, yep.  That's what I did with my lonely Saturday.  NOT TOO SHABBY.

Things I didn't do:
Make the bed
Unload the dishwasher
Cook anything (besides the microwavable popcorn, but does that really count?)
Organize my closet
Scrub toilets or showers
Give the dog a bath
Go to the grocery store (well, I did, but only to buy beer)
Call an old friend
Paint my office
Enjoy nature

How was your weekend?*

*I know that it's Tuesday and you people who are on top of everything already discussed your weekends yesterday, but just humor me, please.


  1. you go girl! "me" weekends are seriously the best sometimes and a great way to recharge! I'm pretty obsessed with that Loft blazer and am pretty sure I need to pop my head in myself...

  2. Sounds like a pretty fantastic Saturday!! Love the blazer you tried on :) Loving the selfie outfit!

  3. Your Saturday sounds great to me. I think I need to try some toppings with a side of fro yo - that combination looks pretty tasty! Love that Loft moto jacket you tried on and your solo outfit of the day as well!

  4. I love your grey booties in the first pic! Ice cream for diner....I wish I could tell you it was once in a while....but definitely happens more often than I care to admit ;-)

  5. This sounds like my weekend (last weekend). Complete with microwaved popcorn and all!

  6. I need to stop in Loft and checkout that new line. The striped tee is so cute and I love the jacket! Toppings with a side of froyo is always acceptable in my book; for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  7. Love your outfit! And your honesty. This is seriously my kind of day... froyo included!
