Monday Round Up: Motorcylces + Lace

Monday, April 18, 2016

Happy Monday! Some Mondays are ok to go back to work, but this one is not. This weekend was so relaxing and gorgeous the last thing I want to do is sit inside of an office. Blerg. Oh well, I am looking forward to more gorgeous days now that Spring has officially sprung around here.

Friday was a pretty chill day. After work I hit up the gym and my friendly neighborhood Ulta. My cousin Candice, She's Leaning In, has been raving about Too Faced's Peanut Butter and Jelly palette. After some looks she created this week I was sold. I was rewarding myself for not spending much this week by spending. Makes sense, right? Well, here's the deal: I love it. I literally got the last one in the store. Whew! I won't do any tutorials because I couldn't hold a candle to Candice. If and when she does one (I am trying to get her to, help me beg) I will point you to it. That night we drove up to a motorcycle store to get me a real helmet.  Saturday we planned to go riding with some friends. Last year I used a friend's old one that D spray painted to have a bull breathing fire through his nostrils.

Let that image sink in.

Needless to say I needed a new one. The store we went to was pretty far cause D needed something for the bike too. We headed back to the cities for a drink at our favorite bar, Donny Dirk's, and then headed home and crashed early. This will become a theme.



Saturday we went for a ride. We met up with our friends's and his parents for a bit of a trek in Stillwater. Saturday was super gorgeous here. Sunny and 70s all day. We drove down through Red Wing, into Wabasha and across the river into Wisconsin at Pepin. Our official destination was The Pickle Factory aptly named for their deep friend pickles. Unlike most places that cut them into chips they deep fry a whole spear. They were kind of hard to eat but totally delicious. It was also right on Lake Pepin and given it was such a beautiful day it was perfect for pictures :) All in all we were probably riding for about 5-6 hours. It was long and I was a little sore but it was fun.





By the time we got home we were pretty tired. I debated maybe having a fire but after about an hour I completely lost all my energy. We spent the evening cuddling with our pups and watching Friday Night Lights. We also turned in early. See? Theme.



Sunday I managed to convince D to go to brunch. After dinner at The Copper Hen a couple of weeks ago I was dying to go back for brunch. The site said to make reservations but when we got there about 9:30 there did not appear to be a need for one. Oh well, we sat down right away. Sunday was another sunny and warm day so I got use out of my new lace, cold shoulder dress (details below).  I learned they have bottomless mimosas so I was hooked. D ordered a bloody mary and it came with a small cupcake, so cute. I settled on the omelette and although a little dry , I added some hot sauce and we were good. And the mimosas, don't forget the mimosas. Up the street was a Spyhouse Coffee, which I love so we went there too. 


We headed home and then promptly got in our truck because D wanted to run a couple of errands. I was just happy to be outside. I figure if I have to be in an office all week I will soak up as much sun as possible. When we got home D worked on the yard and I cleaned up the house a bit before settling in to watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I am almost done and I love it so hard.

That was my weekend. Pretty chill overall right? Perfect weekend basically. This look today I am pretty excited about. If you follow me you know I really love off the shoulder and cold shoulder look. I saw this dress at Primp a few weeks ago. I tried it on and it was magic.  It is one of those fantastic pieces that needs very little. I added my favorite marble pendant necklace from local shop Sisu. These flats from Target are amaze. They are from the Dolce Vita collection at Target. Their stuff is on point. Add some small studs and a great crossbody and you have the perfect brunch look. I wore this dress all day and it was so comfortable. It was lined so I did not have to worry too much about how shear it might be. I would wear this dress every day all summer if I could. You could easily dress this up or even pair it with a great pair of lace up sandals for either a night out or day shopping. I plan to live in this. What do you think? Leave me a comment below I would love to hear from you.
