We took our first road trip since being back in the US over the weekend. We visited Mike’s family in VA Beach to see his little sister’s play- it was (more like, she was) adorable!! I wasn’t too excited about the drive down there since we decided to leave mid-afternoon on Friday (hellooooo peak traffic jams). Luckily someone suggested to me that I check out the Serial podcast (I know I’m a little late to the game on this but, hey, I was in Europe for the last 6 months!!) and the 4ish hour drive ended up really only feeling like a quick 30 minutes. It was just so… g r i p p i n g.
On Sunday we said goodbye to the fam a bit on the early side so we could get back home to attend a baby shower for a good friend of ours. While at VA Beach my mother-in-law took me and the girls to her favorite consignment shop where I bought these JCrew heels for an extreme discount! At 75% off from the original retail price of $298 they seemed downright reasonable! I wore my lightweight peter pan collar top and new-to-me floral heels to the baby shower, hoping my springy look would somehow will some warmer weather to be a reality. (spoiler alert: it didn’t work).

Although quite chilly, it was a very pleasant weekend cheering on our family and friends whether they were on the stage or gearing up for a new baby. I couldn’t help but feel as though the audience giving a standing o at Mike’s little sister’s play and hearing all the guests say congrats to the momma to be at the baby shower, was somehow also giving me props for my successful purchase of those floral heels at 75% off!!
