Coffee Conversations

Bracelets • Leggings • Sneakers

A big hello to the weekend! My one goal for the next two days: stay indoors. We’re experiencing the heat wave that many of you may also be affected by and it is no joke! We’re spending the weekend in Charlottesville with our friends, which I’m so looking forward to. We’ve got some wineries we want to visit, a few restaurants on our list, and some “sightseeing” to do (which we’ll do from the car, haha), so it should be a fun weekend!

When packing up clothes for this weekend, I was trying to find the lightest weight and most breathable things in my closet. This $23 dress definitely fits the bill! I bought it for our trip to Mexico in January, which it was perfect for, so I’ll be wearing it again this weekend. (I wear a small, for reference)

I tried my hand at shrimp & grits for dinner this week and it turned out really good! It was one of the meals in our Home Chef box, so it was pretty foolproof to start with, but I was impressed with the flavor. That’s one of Mike’s favorite dishes, so I’ll definitely be making it for him again!

I’m still using this palette everyday! I love to mix the two blush shades for that perfect, summer pop of pink.

I started listening to a new podcast this week, called 22 Hours. It’s true crime, story-telling type of podcast. There’s only a handful of episodes out, but it’s particularly interesting to me because it took place in DC.

Have a great weekend!

    Hi Lauren! I, too, am from Northern Virginia (although currently residing in sunny San Diego) and it’s always nice to find other bloggers from my hometown. I’ve heard from family how hot it’s been and just wishing you a fun time in Charlottesville and to stay cool!

    Can’t wait to continue following along here on the blog. You have a gorgeous site!
