Casual Market Look

A while back I went to the Mile High Flea Market to look for some tops like this one. They are perfect for summer because they are breezy, easy to wash, etc. I liked 'em so much I bought three...this one, one in black and one in pink. I wore them to Croatia and they worked perfectly. They don't wrinkle easily and they air dry great. Y'all have seen the jeans and shoes before; I bought the hat for $5 at Target (remember when they used to be so expensive?). As August comes to a close I plan on rocking this outfit to the farmers' market, on vacation days with Jess and to work. What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Bar Tray

A while back I was looking at some blogs and they all had bar carts...and I was like, oh, I'm a functioning adult I should have one too. But I just didn't feel a cart would go with our apartment — it would make it seem too cluttered and I like the way we have the space now. However, we do have a large bookshelf that acts as a sideboard to our dining room table that would be perfect for a bar tray and that was how the idea was born. I shopped at Home Goods for most of the supplies, the tray is from Tahari Home that I got for a steal but I can't find on the internet. The rest of the items are below.
The roomie and I love the tray, it makes making drinks easier and our apartment seem that much more "grown-up." What do we have on it you ask? Aperol for spritzes, Hornitos Tequila for margaritas, Kirkland Vodka for screwdrivers, Makers Mark for mint juleps, Fireball for holiday drinks and triple sec for whatever else we make.
What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Week Re-Cap

After this picnic I kinda want to throw more...
Hump Day!!! It has been such a nice couple of weeks — last week was summer drink week (here, here, here, here, here) so we're recapping quite a bit. There's lots of food in this post, as always, and all of it was great. The roomie and I went to a male strip show and that was...hilarious. They were such good performers and I think I laughed the entire time at the absurdity of it but still, it was such a great night. In other things, I've been doing a lot of exploring by myself and with my friend Jessica. And I've been reading a ton, which I love! Jess and I went to Georgetown and some of northern Denver on what we call "Vacation" days (aka Sundays where we have free time). They've been so nice to just get out of town and explore things that are close to home but that I don't normally have time for. What have y'all been up to? - xoxo darling, Hayden

Quotes of the Week

Happy Monday y'all! And what a happy Monday it is...this week is short for me, my parents fly in on Thursday and we are doing a long weekend of fun. This past weekend was so nice, I read a few books, went on another "vacation day" with Jessica and just enjoyed being alone for a bit. What about y'all? - xoxo darling, Hayden
