Summer White

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all spent the long weekend surround by friends, family, sun and some good grillin'! I was lucky enough to spend my weekend with all of the above & my Laguna Beach sunburn is now peeling 50 shades of brown as a result -- eek! To cap the weekend the honey and I got dressed for a date night at one of my favorite places in town.

This gal loves a flowy summer dress and some wedges in the summer time and this quick ensemble is ready for a some dinner and drinks.

Memorial day is not only for beaching, pooling, and grilling -- if you've turned on a TV in the last 2 weeks then you know Memorial Day Sales are in just about every store. Lucky for me I was able to make it to the mall where I popped into Express for their 40% everything sale. I posted about this same sale a few months back where I scored some great summer items that I couldn't quite wear yet. Well, I've worn those goodies {and loved them} and I had to head back in for more. 

These pictures were snapped right before dinner and both our tummies were growling so iphone quality will have to do. I think there comes a point in every bloggers life where you step back and say "ahh!"  so this is what other bloggers feel like when you have just about a million things on your plate and blogging has officially taken a back seat. With our move quickly approaching and the school year quickly ending I feel there are just not enough time in the day. 

School countdown -- 12 days {thank you Jesus! Mama needs a break} 
Number of things I have to get done in that 12 days -- 154,453,398
Can you see where my stress level is at? This long weekend and date night were well deserved and much needed! 

Don't leave just yet -- I will continue to be posting {& I have some fun ideas coming, too!} so bare with me while I juggle all this craziness and keep checking back! 

White Dress -- $25.00, Express 40% off sale. | Wedges -- Target, old. | Teal Necklace -- $12.00, Francesca's. | Long Tassel Necklace -- Lauren Conrad. | Clutch -- H&M last season. 

Although I have only snuck in a post or two a week I am still an instagramin' queen so head on over and follow me at @xochristinemarie! I hope you're all enjoying your sundress and flip flop weather as much as I am.
