Well, you’d think it would be easy to come back to work after a four day weekend when I already had my outfit all planned out thanks to Two Birds and their Inspiration Monday. White top? Check. Blue patterned pants? check. Nude sandals? Check. Arm party? Check and check.

Yet, somehow, I managed to forget to put on my engagement ring (I remembered my wedding ring, though. But since it’s a wrap ring it looks kind of silly by itself) AND earrings. Seriously. Waking up was super hard after an awesome weekend that included a four mile race, a rooftop BBQ and fireworks watching, planting flowers on our balcony, a 20 mile bike ride, Zumba in the park, a trip to the Taste of Lakeview, and FINALLY checking out the local Goodwill.

Needless to say, I made the most of my weekend and my body wanted it to keep going.

On the plus side, I bought some new curl cream this weekend and this morning it kept my hair curly without making it crunchy. Score!

Also, don’t forget to vote for your favorite outfit of June! So many of you loved my white lace pants but they’re currently behind! Maybe it’s a tough choice…
