weekend indulgences (interesting links)

Grilled Lobster

In honor of the gorgeous weekend we're about to have here (and all the chores we've recently accomplished), B and I have a fun weekend planned with very few to-do items on the horizon. Hope you all are up to something irresponsible too!
  • A good friend of mine is getting married in Portugal this coming spring and these gorgeous photos of the town of Sintra are getting me so pumped to go!
  • Apparently clever pandas have been faking pregnancies for snacks (and I can't say I blame them).
  • This recipe recently inspired B and I to pick up a couple lobsters at the store and indulge in grilled lobster - highly recommend.
  • And if you're not into cooking, Washingtonian has a round-up of 8 summer restaurant specials to try. I've got my eyes on Iron Gate's Mediterranean feast.
  • In my opinion, restaurant decor makes for some of the best eye candy, so I loved this kitchen renovation inspired by a home-owner's favorite restaurant.

Trying my damnedest to channel what I imagine a French pregnant lady might wear while frankly feeling a little bit like a large-sized grape with legs. Ah yes, we've finally entered that phase - the one where you feel like you've swallowed a bowling ball. We're on the home stretch now! Have also safely transitioned out of harboring any delusions of purchasing new clothing at this point and hoping to ride out the rest of my pregnancy on the clothes I already have. This saves the shopping budget for all-important shoe purchases like these new Tabitha Simmons beauties that I know I'm going to wear for years to come. I think my favorite part about them is that they look like the detail on a dressage bridle, no?

Fast growing bump alert! Boohoo recently asked me to style a look for their #WeAreUSA campaign and I couldn't be more pleased with this curve-hugging bohemian dress. It's nice and breathable, which is key now that I've hit the all-important third trimester mark and easy to throw on with very little thought process required. I wore this for an impromptu mini golf date with B when we totally lucked out and had the course pretty much to ourselves. Kind of nice to have a little throwback-style date night during these last few months when it's just the two of us :-).
