scenes from the weekend

08 April 2013
hello, friends! did you have a nice weekend? after a very busy week at work, i was so ready for a break this weekend. starting with a shopping trip on friday...

banana republic was having one of their amazing 40% off sales, so i picked up this adorable dress, this cardigan, this tank, this necklace, and these cropped pants. i went a bit nuts, but i know i'll get a lot of wear out of these pieces.
and of course for date night, i had to try out a few of my new purchases. we went to frida's for dinner, which was fun; the drinks are amazing, the ambiance was upbeat, but the food was just OK for the price.

on the way to hot yoga (you can read about why i love it here), i snapped the photo below. even though james is the photographer in this relationship, i often see photo opportunities in my head, so i decided to start snapping away and seeing what i get.

and probably the most exciting part of the weekend was finding amazing fabric to recover our wingback chair and the seats of two desk chairs. we scored a fantastic deal on upholstery grade navy blue velvet at joann fabrics - $115 for 7 yards! i'll post photos when it's all done, but the image below is the inspiration for the wingback.

Can't wait to see how the chair turns out. Saw your adorable outfit in Instagram - it's too cute and sounds like date night was fun!
