Holiday weekends are my favorite part of the summer. They’re a great way to relax, recharge, and spend time with the people you love. I got to spend the weekend with family at the beach and it was the best weekend of the summer. I love the feeling of being at the beach; waking up on the water, lazy mornings, and beautiful sunsets. Not to mention family barbecues are incredible; in our family we love our smoker and we’ll smoke everything – lobster tails, ribs, you name it – I definitely gained a few pounds this weekend but it was well worth it.
one // Phones off, family on – Speaking of family time, making the most of it is so important. I don’t get to see my extended family enough, so I love that when we all get together for special occasions we go by the motto “phones off, family on”. For at least part of the time we’ll all put our phones away or turn them off and focus on each other. I’ve been trying to keep my phone put away more because I know I’m addicted to it, but it’s a work in progress!
two // What do you meme? – I’ve always loved board games. When I was younger and got sick half way through my day at home I’d be begging my parents to play games with me. Friday we broke out “What Do You Meme,” a new board game that’s like a visual Cards Against Humanity. When it’s your turn to judge you get to pick the meme card (a picture with no caption) and then everyone plays a caption card, the judge reads out the captions, and picks a winner. The captions are gold. It’s a hilarious game. I would say it’s only downfall is it leaves Justin Bieber’s “What do you mean” stuck in my head for days.
three // A feel good movie – I recently watched Trolls and was pleasantly surprised. It was really cute! The highlight of the film is definitely the soundtrack, which should come as no surprise since it features Justin Timberlake. It won’t be the best movie you’ll see all summer, but if you’re looking for something to watch on Netflix it’s a cute option.
four // Tory Burch sale – The Tory Burch semi-annual sale is happening right now! There’s still a bunch of cute pieces out and they’re all an additional 30% off! I linked some of my favorites below.
five // J.Crew Factory – I posted the skirt in the main photo a while back as part of my Building a Work Wardrobe post. I love J.Crew Factory for work clothes because it’s so much more affordable and cuter than almost anywhere else. J.Crew Factory is having a major sale right now and this skirt is part of it! It’s on clearance for $44.99 but it’s an extra 50% off with code FOURTHFUN. It’s almost entirely sold out in navy but its still available in every size in the green! It runs true to size and is so cute! Perfect for work or play.
