Off Shoulder

romper (on sale) / sandals / hat / earrings

What a weekend! Or really...what a week. The last 7 days have flown by and it's safe to say I am tired. Nothing like kicking off a Monday already feeling exhausted, but it was certainly all worth it. I showed property on Saturday morning, so I came into the office for a few hours before my mom met me and we made our way back to Raleigh for the Miss North Carolina finals. A huge congratulations to Catherine White, Miss North Carolina's Outstanding Teen, and to McKenzie Faggart, Miss North Carolina. I first met McKenzie when she was competing in the teen division my first year competing at Miss NC. And I had the privilege of meeting Catherine last year when I assisted in mock interviews for her pageant prep. My mom and I had such a great time together and I'm always sad to see Miss NC week come and go.

Sunday was spent in the sun, which is my favorite thing to do on a weekend. I should've spent more time resting and being productive, but I couldn't resist a trip on the boat. Sophie loves going on the boat too, so she got to go along (You can follow Sophie the Maltipoo on Instagram here). The sun always drains me - but totally worth it!

One of the things my mom and I always do during Miss NC week is shopping - I'm not in love with the shopping in Wilmington - aside from a few of my favorite local boutiques of course - so it's always fun to pick up a few things while in Raleigh. I snagged this romper and am very glad I did. I don't love how it photographs, but in person, I found it to be flattering and comfortable. It's the perfect weekend romper. It's also on sale for less than $50 - so grab it sooner than later!
