I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually kind of excited it’s Monday. This isn’t a typical thing for me, as I dread the start of a new week (I wish every day was Friday). This week though, I’m feeling energized and refreshed after an easygoing weekend in Cleveland. My boyfriend’s birthday is today, so I made the 4 hour trek up I-71 to visit him for the weekend. We did a lot of eating (the usual), a little bit of bar-hopping and played more games of Mario Kart than I’d like to admit. For the birthday dinner Friday, we ate at L’Albatros, a cute little French restaurant on the Case Western campus. Dinner was amazing, but I was most excited for brunch the next day. Every time I visit Cleveland, I insist that we go to Town Hall for brunch. If you’re ever in Cleveland, you need to experience it! I usually treat myself to a mimosa (or two), but we wanted to have a productive day, and champagne tends to make me sleepy.
I also got to experience the Brooks Brothers store downtown, which is one of the most beautiful stores I’ve ever been in. It was two levels, had oversized columns, and was the epitome of old-school glamour. Yes, I get excited about the little things. Anyway, it was a nice little getaway that has me feeling ready to take on the week ahead.
How amazing does this Tara Lea Smith necklace look with my denim on denim outfit? You might remember me wearing it with this outfit, but I loved the idea of transitioning it into fall with something more casual. Double denim is such an easy outfit to wear. I love that you can just add some jewelry and heels and easily transform it into a chic, effortless look.
