The Weekender


There’s something about a crisp men’s oxford, classic Chuck Taylor’s and a fun fedora that screams weekend comfort to me.  And this weekend, it was a good one for me. I got plenty of Christmas shopping done, got laundry done (finally), and spent quality time with the boy and the pups. It was kinda perfect if you ask me, and I’m really upset it’s come to an end. Oh Monday, how I loathe you.

For the last month or so my style has done a 360. Lately I’ve been gravitating towards simple, relaxed ensembles and shying away from, dare I say it, mixing prints. Arm parties? I’ve declined to attend. A blingged out collared necklace to polish off a look? Nah, I’ll pass. I don’t know what’s gotten into me, it’s like I’ve become a different person.

My Weekend in Photos: Birthday Party

Yesterday I celebrated my 27th birthday (today is officially my birthday!). Last year the fella and I did our own thing and went to Vegas for a couple days, so this year I wanted to spend it with friends. We still don’t know many people here in AZ but we both have gotten to know co-workers at our respective jobs, so we had ourselves a pretty good guest list. With our backyard finally complete we thought what better way to debut the finishing product than to have a Cinco de Mayo/birthday party. And that’s exactly what we did!

If you follow me on Instagram (joannealma), then you’ve already seen these pics. But if you don’t (which you should), here are some snapshots from the soirée, complete with sombreros, margaritas and homemade quesadillas. A great time was had by all and as the birthday girl I couldn’t have asked for more. Stay tuned later on this week for a breakdown of my birthday outfit!

Weekend Uniform

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a good weekend! My weekend was full of food, fun and bonding. My cousin Jenny was in town from VA and boy did we enjoy ourselves, it was nice to have a familiar face around. I wore this outfit on Saturday, the perfect ensemble to take in the beautiful weather we had in AZ. The day was spent eating Mexican food (and beverages), strolling around the downtown Scottsdale waterfront and my first visit to Scottsdale Fashion Square. That alone was quite the experience.

A maxi dress it the perfect weekend uniform. It’s easy and simple - no mess, no fuss. Add a cardigan, comfy sandals and small cross body bag to carry the essentials and you’re all set! What is your ideal weekend uniform?

My Weekend in Photos: Football Sunday

As part of the ‘paper’ gift for out first anniversary K got me Cardinals vs Giants tickets (the New York Giants are my favorite team). Unfortunately we were out of town for the game but he was able to exchange the tickets for yesterday’s game versus the St. Louis Rams.

After church and the marriage course we headed North into Peoria for the Cardinals game. It was a fun time but they ended up losing, at least we think so, we left at the start of the 4th quarter. But it was great weekend regardless.  

How did you spend your weekend? Do anything fun?
