Wednesday Round Up: First Day of School + End of Summer



Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. I am back from my mini-hiatus and in full swing now, a little to my dismay. I am not totally ready to be back in the saddle but here we are. 

Over the weekend we headed up to the cabin for a last taste of summer. I was hoping for some warmer weather, but it was just a hair on the chilly side the whole time. Either way though we had fun. We got up there late on Friday and stayed up for a bit before going to sleep. Reese did not sleep well the whole weekend, waking up every couple of hours to cry before we put the pacifier in her mouth. I am not entirely sure what got into her but it was pretty frustrating. 


Saturday we went up to the local watering hole as they were having a bean bag tournament. We thought Sunday was supposed to be the warmer day and this would be fun. We let D and his dad play on the same team because D's mom and I are awful at this game. They actually got pretty far, we lost twice. Pretty epically I might add. It was fun to watch people play and Reese slept a good chunk of the time.

On Sunday we sat around a bit until the sun came out and did a little later afternoon fishing on a smaller lake. They caught a few things but nothing worth keeping. We had dinner at the resort the lake was on before heading in.  Monday we got up and headed home.

Side note: I realized the only pictures I took were of Reese or Reese and someone, so sorry for the lack of photos.

Tuesday was the first day of school where I work so things were a little crazy with school staff. I kept pretty quiet and basically tried to stay out of the way. I am partially ready for this but at the same time I have not had a consistent work schedule since before Reese was born so it is little weird to think about too. 

I eased myself into this by thinking of a fun first day look. I was a little inspired by my 'first days' and went a little 90s retro. I had to buy some new jeans the other day. Some of my old jeans I can totally wear and some old jeans just aren't going to work. Gap had a big 40% off sale and I really like their jeans, especially on sale :) I was drawn to these boyfriend jeans. I have tried a bunch of times to wear boyfriend jeans and with some encouragement from a friend I committed to these. For a looser fit pant I knew I needed a tighter fit top. I dug out this old tank from Target that I bought on a whim and it matched perfectly. When I paired these two items together it just had such a 90s teen movie vibe I knew it would be a great "back to school" look. I updated it with the peep toe booties and what is becoming my staple grey cardigan plus a little mixed metal necklace for a little dressier appeal. Welcome back to school class of 1996! ;)
