have a spontaneous weekend.

30 Sep

this evening some very best friends are coming into town for an impromptu (partial) college reunion. we see each other 2, maybe 3, times a year so it’s a special special treat to have them in town.

there’s LOTS going on this weekend to boot. a concert with the boy on friday night, michigan football viewing with the girls, a birthday party for my rhyming urbanite, and a date with the lincoln park zoo. busy busy busy. i’ll be needing that earl grey latte come monday morning.

but for now, i’m basking in the excitement of putting on my party pants like i’m an undergrad all over again. forget the grocery shopping, laundry, and adulthood responsibilities; this weekend i’m committed to acting like it’s my senior year all over again.

{lets party like its acapulco 2006}

here’s to good friends, fall weather, college football, and birthday parties.

some fun finds to get you in the celebratory spirit:

the perfect guide for matching a dignified adult beverage to your duds

fun party-style and VERY vintage-meets-modern yellow eye-liner

i’d love to give or get an invite like this. reminds me of the stepmom proposal!

it is ABOUT time that i learn how to fishtail braid. leaner mermaid…

refuse to wear pants to the party! no pants!
