Weekend Away…

And not a moment too soon (oh lordy life is busy!!). We are going to the quiet beach side community of Ocean Isle, NC for our annual high school girls weekend!  I always over pack-so this year I am trying to focus on quality NOT quantity.  Thankfully the weekend will consist of relaxing at the beach house so I don’t have to worry about day and night looks.  My wardrobe (should) consist of comfortable pieces that will work for cocktails at the house or if we head out for the delicious locally caught seafood Ocean Isle is known for.  Weekend EssentialsBillabong Lightweight sweatshirt (available in store at Salty Girls) $45/Joe’s Jeans Vintage Reserve Tammy Amazon.com $98
Jack Rogers Neon Vachetta Thong Amazon.com $98 (I’m totally obsessed!!)/Old Navy Chambray Shirt Old Navy $15

Weekend Essentials 2Other weekend essentials include my favorite necklaces by Melvin and Jennifer Zeuner, Christina Jervey square hoop earrings and gold shoulder duster earrings from II Brunettes.  Sample size skin and hair care products (who needs to carry full size for a 72 hour trip!!) and my Kindle Fire.  I just downloaded Tilar Mazzeo’s new novel The Hotel on Place Vendome. 

We will be making these delicious Orange-Lime Margaritas created by Emily author of one of my favorite blogs- Cupcakes and Cashmere and enjoying tons of tasty treats courtesy of this talented crew!  Maybe I’ll share some favorite recipes next week in Nosh.
Rain is in our forecast so I predict plenty of cocktails, card games, chit-chat and fun for a group of friends with a 25 year history.
Whatever you are doing this weekend I hope it is spectacular!  xoxo,  Catherine
