Saturday Morning Daydreams // Changing It Up

source: Vogue UK

I decided to change things up a bit with Saturday Morning Daydreams this week.  Normally, I post several pretty pictures of things of which I happen to be daydreaming on that particular Saturday.  And although they usually appear to be unrelated to one another, they have a common thread, and that thread is the "theme" for that edition of the series.  It's one of my absolute favorite posts to work on each week.  It's kind of a special little project, and of all my posts in a given week, it's the one I usually spend the most time on.

But on this Saturday morning, I decided to simplify, and just post one pretty picture that effectively sums up exactly what is filling my daydreams this morning.

This past week has been even busier than usual work-wise.  Between adding new goods to my online clothing shop* and starting to prepare for production on the fall collection, creating some new pieces for my art shop, working on the blog and guest posts for other blogs, and a million other random work projects, it's been a little crazy around here. (*Speaking of my clothing line, today's the last day of a special 3-day sale we're having - yes, another project I worked on this past week!  If you want to check it out, you can read the details right here.) 

planning is also starting to kick into high gear.  The fiance is home for a a month, and then the band has fall tour right up until our wedding, so we're definitely feeling the pressure to get things done.  I love the fact that we're making it almost 100% DIY, but as many of you know, than can be a lot of work!  I finally finished designing my invitations yesterday, so now it's just a matter of a whole lot of printing, cutting, gluing, stuffing and addressing.  My shower is next weekend too, and I have my little sister and two best friends coming to Chicago to stay with me for a few days to help work on wedding projects. I'm beyond excited to see them, and can't wait to share pictures and stories with you!  I definitely have another very busy week ahead.

Robbie and I are going to hit up some estate sales, and then I'm going to take the rest of the day to be as  L A Z Y  as possible. For my fellow busy bees, there isn't much I can recommend more highly than making sure you give yourself a little break now and then.  Recharging is the absolute best way to boost motivation and feel re-inspired.  I hope that whatever your plans are for this weekend, you have a little R and R time of your own.


  1. Wedding planning is so fun but so exhausting! What projects are you working on? I can't wait to see what the two of you come up with!

  2. I love the simplicity of the fact that you just posted that one pic today instead of a lot, it makes a statement and I think it's awesome you are taking a day to relax!! You do so much!! Enjoy it!!


  3. I have been really busy lately too - I agree it is important to schedule some time to just be, & not work all the time, all those little side projects add up!


  4. My goodness, you have had a busy few weeks! Good luck with all your projects- you deserve a relaxing day with your love! :)

  5. You are so right, breaks are so important! Such a lovely photo and I hope you got to have a nice recharging weekend!

  6. sounds like you deserve a rest! I also hit up some estate sales on Saturday but they were a bust. Sometimes they are run by companies who overprice the vintage items.

  7. I <3 relaxing.... some people think I can't do it, but that's not true! I actually love to luxuriate in it. :) Slow time is good time.... just makes me dread returning to "reality" that much more though.
