It’s always so much fun to wear my little flower pot purse! Yes, I know, it has a name; but it looks like a flower pot to me so that is what I shall call it! haha

The weather has been fabulous, so I took my kids to meet some friends at Santana Row for a stroll along the Row, and also a yummy lunch at The Counter. I had a southern fried chicken burger with provolone cheese, and dried cranberries, on a brioche bun with a side of shoestring fries, and pesto sauce. It was a really good combo! I’m going to try it with beef next time; or the impossible burger. Have you tried it? It’s so good!

This outfit was perfect for a relaxing afternoon with friends. This might be my new favorite “throw-on” tee for the spring and summer seasons. It’s really comfy and I love the loose fit. It comes in a few additional colors, so I might pick up one more!

Are you enjoying the spring weather we are getting? Hopefully it won’t get hot too quickly; this weather is perfect!

Happy spring! Our weather is FINALLY jumping into the 70’s and 80’s! It was so nice to be able to wear my warm weather clothing over the weekend! I wore this outfit to church on Sunday, and for a meeting later in the afternoon. This skirt is so comfortable and perfect for warm spring weather!

My daughter is taking a photography class through school and she took these pictures after church on Sunday. She had me twirling, and moving my skirt like crazy! I think some people on the sidewalk thought I was insane. haha That being said, it was really fun having an eleven-year-old direct me in my photos! She really loves photography and is having so much fun with it. She has a really good eye for nature photos, and her landscape photography is beautiful. We live in the perfect place for those types of photos!

If you are looking for a comfy and casual spring outfit, which isn’t made out of denim, I highly recommend this skirt! It looks really cute with a basic tee, or a twist tee. You can wear it casual with flip flops, or dress it up with espadrille wedges like I did. Well, by “dress it up” I mean “put together casual” versus “just threw this together casual” haha if that makes any sense Maybe I’m babbling? OK, I’ll stop.

I hope your spring weather is warming up too! Thanks for stopping by!

Have ever had one of those days when you wake up and something hurts, you’re exhausted, and your schedule is full? Ugh, that was me last Friday! I woke up with an aching knee, I was exhausted-as if I ran a marathon, which I did not, and my schedule was jam-packed!

My knee threw me for a loop. Since it was spring break, I thought it would be a good idea to do a few volunteer hours with my daughters since I am trying to teach them our responsibility for the community around us. Since the weather was nice, I thought an outdoor volunteer job would be nice. So, I took the girls down to the Rose Garden in San Jose and we joined other volunteers to help maintain the garden. Our job was weeding. Now, I have a gardener at my house, so although I know how to weed, my body isn’t used to it. We worked for three hours, and afterwards it felt like I had done squats for three hours straight! Eeek!

I could barely walk the next two days, and on Friday I woke up with a pain in my knee. Ugh! I had to cancel my plans of attending spin class with a friend, and just concentrate on getting through the day without aggravating my knee even more. I met up with my fabulous friend Laura from Have Need Want and snapped pictures of our outfits, played with her cute little toddler, and ate a yummy lunch at Tacolicious. I’m so thankful I had this athleisure outfit in my closet to help me be comfortable throughout the day! Three cheers for the athleisure trend! Hip, hip, hooray!

There is nothing like wearing super comfortable sneakers and soft track pants to help alleviate exhaustion and pain. I never want to take these sneakers off! Or these pants! haha, they are so comfy!

Do you ever have days when your body just wants to stay in bed, but you have so many errands to run, you have to get up and go? What’s your favorite way to dress on those days? Mine is definitely athleisure!
