BRB, The 90’s Called

This past week was slightly insane on the work front since returning from Chicago. I found myself very burned out once arriving home basically everyday last week, so I was looking forward to a more low-key weekend.

After getting a much-needed bang trim and Starbucks/Target run in in the morning Courtney’s sister Gina graced us with her presence for a fajita and margarita party our apartment complex was throwing at the pool. It was such a nice afternoon to sit by the pool and sip on some lime margaritas without sweating profusely.  After a little bit of r & r and another Courtney joining the group, we were off to HiHO Brewery in downtown Cuyahoga Falls for a bunch of shareable food from Beef & Barley’s food truck and flights of beer (my personal favorite being the oatmeal stout). I wanted to wear something comfortable that evening and since it was cooler than normal this past Saturday I thought this Abercrombie & Fitch dress was perfect.

As soon as I saw this dress I immediately thought to myself that this dress is straight from the 90’s and I must have it. This dress fits like a glove but is flowy in all the right places. The buttons down the front of the dress are functional if you don’t want to slip it over your head and what I love about Abercrombie dresses is that they usually have a sewn in slip to provide additional coverage and quality. I paired this dress with a pair of medium hoop earrings that I got early in the day at Target. I’ve been wanting a pair of hoops this summer and I honestly never thought I would want another pair after my high school hoop phase. But these bad boys are the perfect size with not being too big or too small. I love when I can pair a cute summer dress with my black basket sandals that I got from Old Navy last year, they just remind me of another era. I was hoping Old Navy would bring them back again this year but unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it.

This past weekend was just what the doctor ordered; sleeping in, the company of great friends, and delicious food and drinks through out the weekend. I am facing Monday fully recharged and ready to tackle anything thrown at me.
