Monday Round Up: Zara Off the Shoulder

Happy Monday! Hope you all had another great weekend. I had quite another busy weekend myself and am pretty tired as I write this so I will keep it short and sweet.

Friday was a quiet day. I got my hair done that morning and met a friend at the mall that afternoon. She has a baby four days younger than mine so it was nice to be out with someone who is experiencing the same exact thing as you. It was a really fun day except it seems it was a little much for Reese. She was pretty fussy that night and it took awhile to get her down. Lesson learned: temper her exposure to others.

Saturday was the busiest day of the weekend. That morning I had a bridal shower for my younger sister. Given what happened the day before I left Reese at home. They had a little brunch complete with mimosas and a gift opening. I love brunch so much I was so happy to eat it. It was the perfect little shower just long enough and no games. The best. Oh also, my aunt bought her the funniest gift. My sister hates bees....hates. She screams when they are anywhere near her. Everything my aunt gave her was bee related and she had been collecting items for a year. It was hilarious!







That night was my dad's big 60th birthday celebration. That we did want to bring Reese to and courtesy of my sister she had the perfect little outfit. We had a big party over at my parent's house with a really great turnout. I was so glad to see so many people come to celebrate my dad. I really could not have asked for a better father in life as a supportive parent and role model. To see that many people come out is just a testament to the person he is. 



My niece, Arianna, and Reese.


Sunday we went up to D's parents house. The whole fam was there including all my nieces and nephews. There are officially seven grandchildren on that side so it gets a little rowdy :) But it is fun to see them all play together. A few really wanted to hold Reese and that was kind of adorable. The kids roped Grandma into making cookies, which of course we all benefitted from so I was not complaining. 

Look how cute they are!



Overall it was a successful weekend. I also got to finally wear my Zara sale score. Zara is having a big sale and I snagged this off the shoulder top for $10!! I have been wanting to sport an off the shoulder for a while but kept wondering where I would wear it. Well for $10 I figured I would find a place. I took my dad's birthday party as an opportunity to wear it. This top is perfect for this time of year. It's a sweater but very thin material so it will transition well into the warmer months. I did buy a larger size, seems like Zara sizes everything pretty small. I paired it with these light wash jeans I got from Target. I was not sure how committed I would be to this color so figured for $28 I could commit to just about anything. Top it off with these new Gap sunnies and Justfab snakeskin loafers it was the perfect party look.
