Happy Monday! I hope you had a restful weekend. Mine was ridiculous, but I made the most of it. Today is my Friday, so I'll be able to finally catch up on your bloggity blog blogs which I so have missed very much.
 
Ever since I started working, I haven't had a decent weekend at all. I oh so wish I was expected to fully concentrate my efforts on running a massive, opulent countryside estate (English, of course) so I can say ridiculous things like "What is a weekend?" Because, everyday-- EVERY FREAKING DAY would then feel like a weekend. 




How was your weekend?

  1. I didn't get to do much this weekend it rained for most of the day Saturday and then I had to take the Bf to the airport so I've been pretty bored without him here to drive crazy! haha

  2. We should so pool our money and buy a fixer upper estate in England and run it as a BandB!

  3. This is such a great look, I keep seeing people pulling off the look of putting their belt over their cardigan but I have yet to try it. I love the blue of the dress/skirt. You have such fabulous shiny, healthy looking hair and this is the perfect braid, my braids always end up so messy. I know what you mean about the weekend, my boyfriend works Friday and Saturday so I always feel like our schedule or weekend is different from everyone elses.

  6. LOL, often times my weekends don't really feel like weekends because of a church music group we're part of, it can feel like a second job! This weekend was different though!

    I love your gold shoes, they are too much fun!

  17. Weekends don't really exist in my house unfortunately. After working all week, the weekend is spent grocery shopping, cleaning and all that adult stuff. Hopefully you got some R&R today :)

    I do love your shoes! Heather

  18. Sorry to hear about your non-weekend. I'm lucky enough to have my weekends as weekends (I really shouldn't complain) because there's so many who have weekends as non weekends (like my hubs and you). Glad that you're making the best out of YOUR weekend though by relaxing(?) and catching up on blogs (thanks for stopping by mine- BTW hope you get the soy milk I posted it's soooo good..let me know what you think). On to more important things - Lovely outfit. I always love versatile pieces that can be switched up from skirt to dress and vice versa. And the glasses are to drool over! Hellurrr!

  25. I think I'm going to call this outfit secretary glam. Is that silly? Secretary for the glasses and glam for the fab blue and gold shoes.

    I think we should start putting Downton Abbeyisms into our everyday speech. Just for fun.

  26. My weekend was not only uneventful but it was also jam packed with nothing exciting...filing my income tax return? Doing laundry? Cleaning????? ahhhh!

  31. weekends are always crazy for us. It's like everybody is trying to squeeze in every possible thing they cannot do on a weekday on a weekend. So we get birthday parties invitation, dinner gatherings...etc.

    That's a great weekend outfit...i like your gold shoes too much!

  38. Haha, I love that scene. Her delivery is so perfect. I also like the swivel chair scene. I often do office work on weekends and amuse myself swiveling around with Downton Abbey quotes swimming in my brain. Anyway! Lovely ensemble. Those shoesies of yours are adorable. Double straps!
