Wow. Is anyone else shocked by how quickly the weekend flew by? My weekend was packed: taxes (four hours and five-plus phone calls to my financial-planning dad), shopping, room/office rearranging, a Sephora event, cronuts, a walk to get frozen yogurt, a walk around a local lake/park, making a giant pot of vegetable stew, a flat tire (Liz’s second flat tire this year), and a low-key concert. Needless to say, it was a very busy weekend but a very fulfilling one.

P.S. When it comes to weekend wear, I’m all about denim and stripes. This cropped trench? I bought it a few years ago at F21 and it has worn beautifully — proof that if you’re picky about what you buy at the trendier stores, they can last you a long time. (I couldn’t find a F21 cropped trench online, but here’s a fun trench they’re selling in leopard.)
