A Sock Bun, a Romper and a Road Trip | Style Savvy Weekend Rewind

So much fun with friends this weekend, as my kid free summer kicked off. It is bittersweet each year when my young man heads to the shore to spend the summer with my parents; because I miss him a ridiculous amount--but, I’m also grateful for the break, and I try and use the extra time to both work harder and play harder (call me, we’ll hang out!). After his and my last road trip together for awhile, I headed to a fight/playoffs party.

Temps were in the 90s so I went for a cool and comfy romper with wedges, a silver arm party and my very first sock bun (which I learned how to do by watching this super easy tutorial at the Wendy’s Lookbook YouTube channel)! It came out great, and it will likely be my summer bun staple—it’s so much easier than shaping the hair around itself.

On Sunday, an LNL Book Club road trip ensued to the home of this month’s host in PA, where she graciously hosted us "Breakfast at Tiffany's" style, while we discussed 50 Shades of Grey. The spread, which included Greek yogurt parfait, cranberry French toast, scones, turkey sausage, two quiches, eggs Florentine, tea sandwiches, tomato/basil/mozzarella skewers, fruit salad, cupcakes, wine and mimosas--was as beautiful as it was delicious.

Thanks to The Momo Momma, one of our fearless LNL leaders, we were also treated to an impromptu fashion show. She brought fabulous vintage dress finds for us to view and try on—which resulted in our host trying everything on, adding her own accessories and modeling. She looked gorgeous in them all.

In an effort to beat the heat that was sweltering again on Sunday, I was modeling a cute little yellow and black strapless number for the day, with black and wood wedges and my sock bun.

As an aside, I could not WAIT to get home and pop the cork on this delicious little Moscato number on Friday evening—it is one of my absolute faves and I highly recommend it if you like dessert wines. And on Saturday morning, for T’s going away breakfast, I made these delightful little pancakes—they came out so pretty! Love it when that happens.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
