Inspiration Monday - Lazy days

Annnnnnd it's Monday again.  These weekends pass by too fast sometimes.   Ok not just sometimes, they pass by too fast all of the time!  I'm linking up with two birds for Inspiration Monday today - I absolutely love this laid back look from Gwyneth Paltrow.

I had intentions of doing a similar look for today with the boyfriend jeans and everything but then hit two problems - one, the boyfriend jeans I ordered from Old Navy haven't arrived yet and two, we spent the majority of our weekend in pajamas/yoga pants!  So instead, I made it work for work today.

It was one of those nice weekends where we didn't have anything scheduled so we just kind of did things as we felt like it.  And while we were having our nice pajama morning on Saturday, The Pants Monkey came up with a great idea to take Ollie over to one of our Farmers Markets, buy some of our favorite local meat from local farms and just wander around a bit there.  So we got dressed - and by that I mean pretty much a step above pajamas - and headed over there.  Oliver loved it.  Mr. Monkey carried him in our Ergo carrier and he just looked around and took it all in.  He even fell asleep!  We packed him back up and decided to hit our favorite restaurant for a late brunch/early lunch.  After that we headed home, I met up with my mom and we sold some of Ollie's outgrown items to Once Upon a Child.  We had a little wine/cheese night for dinner after Ollie went to bed and we sat out on our deck for a long time because it was a beautiful night.

Blazer - American Eagle (thrifted), Tank top - Liz Lange nursing (Target)
Leggings - Simply Vera (Kohls), Shoes - Steve Madden (consignment), Necklace - Lia Sophia

I won this necklace at a friend's Lia Sophia party!

Sunday was more of the same - more lazy time in pajamas, more time outside because it was gorgeous.  Mr. Monkey got some yard stuff done, including re-painting the light post at the end of our driveway that has been rusted and ugly looking for quite some time.  We took Ollie to the park near us for a walk.  We grilled for dinner.  It was just a nice and relaxing weekend overall!  I'd had a less than ideal week last week, so it was very much needed!

  9. That weekend sounds like perfection! I'm hoping this coming weekend is like that for us--no plans, just do as we please! I love this look--you gave Gwenyth's casual look a bit of glam, and I love it!
