You have no idea how relieved I am to have this week behind me! It's been a doozy! I had a few big deadlines in both real life and blog life that have had me super busy, and the fact that they were all happening within days of each other was not good for my sanity. But, I got through everything I needed to do, and I am looking forward to a regular schedule again this week. WHEW!! In celebration of all my major deadlines being accomplished, the husband and I had somewhat of an impromptu double date night with his cousin and her husband. We went to one of our favorite steakhouses called Popeye's Chophouse. You have to drive through farmland and cornfields to get there, but it's such a hidden gem of a restaurant and it is SO delish.

I decided to wear my new flirty floral top for the occasion. I mentioned in my Nordstrom Anniversary sale haul post on Friday that I wanted to pair it with white skinnies immediately and that I could picture a military jacket over it in the fall. I definitely loved it with the white skinnies, especially this particular pair since the rips offset the sweetness of the top quite nicely. Barely there nude sandals finished the delicate look off perfectly.

I was surprised how much I loved the teal bag against the top! Even though there is zero teal in this top, the bag was still a nice complement. I love when accidents like that happen! It's hard for me not to layer necklaces, and this opal Elisa necklace pulled from the teal in the bag and added a touch of bling at my collarbones.

Of all the things I needed to accomplish this week, my Yoga and Style event was one of them! It took place Saturday afternoon, and I would definitely say it was a success! I will have to recap the event for you later in the week, but thanks for all of you who wished me well before the event took place. I was quite anxious about it to say the least, but it all worked out well!

Have a great week! Don't forget to link up!
