Summer Pace

What's your morning routine? Chris wakes up early and drinks a strawberry smoothie while watching SportsCenter. Never snoozes. Mornings are harder for me (snooze city), but with the earlier summer sunrises I've started going for a quick 30-45 minute walk after rolling out of bed. I make coffee before I leave, it's ready when I get back, refreshed, and I let myself enjoy a cup and watch GMA before jumping in the shower. Because it's something I would do on the weekends, it makes week days feel a bit more "mine" before I head to the office—actually, a bit like vacation—and that first alarm is starting to sting a little less. It also leaves evenings free for rosé. All about balance over here. 

This wasn't a rosé night, but hot dogs and Coronas are right up there. The biggest downfall of our apartment is not having a balcony, so after work on Monday Chris and I headed to the lake to get our grill fix (Chris diligently chopped pickles and onions for relish and adorably packed the cooler and for some reason I can't get over it) and we ended up catching this gorge sunset—such a great change of pace for a Monday. It's not Porto, but it's pretty freaking good. Hope you're having a great week! 



P.S. This maxi skirt is so great (and on sale for $40). It's kind of the equivalent of joggers—dresses up or down and is all about comfort. Also, stretchy and light. Thinking about wearing it with this embroidered peplum top and these slides for dinner on Saturday night.
