Hi everybody! These pictures were taken last week during a vacation in Portugal! It was my favorite kind of week – full of great friends, delicious food, and sunshine. And it was so relaxing! This dress is a soft silk and it packs super well, and these shoes have been seen many times over the past few months, and easily made the cut because of their comfort and versatility. Which is of course super important to consider while traveling.
I tend to pack my daily schedule full, and I am all for taking advantage of every opportunity possible and keeping busy and productive. It makes it hard for me to really unwind, since I’m always planning for the next task or deadline. This week was fortunately not one of those times. It was such a great reminder that carving out time and pushing pause on responsibilities is so rejuvenating. When you’ve earned your breaks, take them. Take them, revel in them, and ride it out. It’s important to carve this time out, since it helps you rebuild your energy stores and makes you all the better when you return.
I hope you’re all able to carve some time out for yourselves this fall to relax, even if it’s only for a few hours. Thanks so much for stopping by!
