The weekend is here! And it’ll be about Haris’ social calendar (he has a birthday party to attend), taking Yaz to the ortho, and running errands as usual! Another thing I hope to get done this weekend is cleaning and organizing around the house. Yaz last day of school was last week and he’s brought all the school supplies and whatever was in his locker back home. So it’s feeling a little unorganized right now. I think I’ll make it easy for myself and toss as much as I can. How do you feel about tossing your kids’ school work? Do you keep it all or just get rid of it? I can be a lot of… paper after a few years!

Now about my outfit… i waited and waited and waited for this Banana Republic blazer to go on sale, all while hoping my size wouldn’t disappear by the time it did! And when Banana Republic had a sale with no exclusions (cause you know how those exclusions always include all the things you really want 😁) a couple of weeks ago, i did not hesitate! The PERFECT SUMMER BLAZER. It’s linen, and when under a severe heat warning like we are this weekend in MN, it’s the blazer to reach for to elevate your casual look!

The jeans… i never thought I would do embroidered jeans. I always thought they looked dated. That was before I spotted those ones on the Express website. I don’t know if it’s because they have some destruction detail, a higher waist as I like it, or a contemporary wash, but the embroidery didn’t bother me. On the contrary it added to my visual interest. And I have zero regrets for snatching this one! Those jeans are form-fitting but very comfortable and provide the coverage us moms need (yes we need to ditch the low rise pants) to keep up with the kiddos!!!

Enjoy the weekend friends and check back for more style and life posts!!!
