Wow–it’s so much easier to face a Monday after being home for the weekend. It was a productive weekend of cleaning and purging. There was also a decent amount of laying around and coffee drinking. Pretty much the stuff weekends were MADE for!

How about some hellos?

Hello boyfriend jeans. These have been my go to lately. So easy and comfortable. If you shop for them, order your regular size.
