wear it // thirty-eight

February 12, 2014


Jam packed weekends have kind of been my thing for, well, for ever. In school my Saturdays and Sundays were spent working. Through college I managed to spend more hours at Fitz’s on a weekend than in my actual apartment. Then this full time job thing happened, and I no longer needed to spend weekends working to make rent. At first weekends were a foreign concept. What was I supposed to do with all this new found time? I’ve got days to just…be! And then, like magic, all free time disappeared. Weekends were filled with trips to the grocery store, birthday parties, brunches and…exercise?

As is indicative of the seasons, i’ve been staying in a lot more on weekends (so much for all that exercise!). Sitting on my couch with a mug of coffee and the newest Kinfolk is better than stepping out into 15 degree cold to run errands. Though I really wish the winter torture would end, it’s been nice to be home instead of running about town every Saturday. I’m averaging about two baked goods and three naps per weekend in 2014.

How are you spending your weekends – do you pack them to brim with activites, or go with a more relaxed approach?

    A bit of both! I usually try to get all school / work stuff out of the way on Friday and then relax during Saturday. Going out or having a great night in with friends on Saturday night and then relaxing again on Sunday is my favourite way to spend a weekend.

    Hi, Jessica!
    I’m a brand new blogger (although not unfamiliar with a lot of those in the blogging scene in STL), and I just wanted to stop by and say hi and follow you!
    I love the stripes and printed pants. Printed lounge/jogger pants are on my list of things to buy for sure!

    My weekends are usually packed to the brim as well, but I prefer a simpler weekend! I appreciate those so much because they are rare.
