Last week, I took a week of vacation. We didn’t go anywhere, and it was really nice. I had a nice mix of productivity (painting furniture for the kitchen) and relaxing (mostly reading). I didn’t look at emails, I didn’t even have my computer on, and I tried to stay off my phone.
I live such a structured life – I try to cram as much in to do as possible, so I am constantly rushing around and attempting to get everything done. Everything is HURRY HURRY HURRY! So it was really nice to take a little break, take a step back and not have to rush around. I told Charlie that I really think my best self is myself on vacation.
Charlie took Wednesday – Friday off, so on Thursday night we went to see a baseball game. The farm team for The Cardinals is in Memphis, and Charlie loves baseball and the Cardinals. I honestly don’t care about either (I am much more of a Memphis Tigers football kind of girl), but I went along for the ride, plus I got to eat at my favorite restaurant Pearl’s. If you even visit Memphis, and you like seafood, you should definitely eat there!
So what do you wear when it is 150 degrees and you have to go sit outside at a baseball game? Something as loose and comfortable as possible. So this Lilly Pulitzer Essie dress was perfect. I didn’t want anything with any sort of waist band or anything tight. You know, I needed to be able to feel the non-existent breeze.
I got this dress last year during the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale. It is my second Essie dress, and I love them. They are so cute and comfortable! So perfect for this time of year. I am hoping I will be able to score another during the August sale!
So it was a nice week off, but going back to work has been a little bit of a shock. There should be some sort of easing back into wrk after vacation.
So what are you doing (or did you do) for your vacation?
