Taking a Step Back + Giveaway!

Maggie a la Mode - ALC Randi Flared Dress, Schutz Anamelia Leather Heels

Bear with me as I sound really cliché here, but the older I get the faster time is flying. How can it already be more than halfway through 2017?! I decided I needed to take a step back lately and focus a little more on my wellbeing as I was just trying to cram too much into my life. I thrive and recharge on those days where I don't do a lot and have time to relax around the house or take the dog for a walk. Jumping from activity to activity just isn't me, but it's what I've been trying to do lately. It's good to remind yourself to take a step back and that it's okay to drop some things or ask for help. I took a break from many different activities to try and catch up with myself, and it's one of the best things I could do. 

As part of that, Nate and I went on a date night last night and took the time to actually dress up! I wore this simple little black dress (perfect for any occasion) paired with these gorgeous nude sandals. I love the uneven hem and how flowy this dress is! This purse is the version of my wooden purse for the summer (as opposed to the ever-popular Cult Gaia purse), and is adding a little bit of an artsy vibe to an otherwise simple look. How did you guys spend your weekend?
