I don’t know about you, but my spring went by entirely WAY too fast. Who told May that it was okay for 90 degree weather already?! It happens every year, but it never ceases to shock me when all of the blossoms are gone, trees are green, and it’s hot outside half way through the month. I also never seem to remember how busy this time of year can be (currently making a mental note for 2016) – summer is a whirlwind, but gearing up for the summer is just as crazy… which is why it’s important to take a moment and relax. B is constantly telling me that I need to slow down and “smell the roses” and I’m finally learning to take time (even if it’s just a few minutes) for myself.

I love this black peplum top just as much as my white one. (Have I mentioned how much I love peplum??) I have very few “going out” tops, as I am not one who frequents the night clubs and D.C. hot spots on a regular basis, but this top is great for a night out dancing with the girls. Hell, it’s also great for a night in watching True Blood (guilty) with a glass of wine in hand… I have been all about the couch potato life lately on nights that I’m not working. Some say “rest is for the weary, sleep is for the dead”, but I definitely do not count myself in that group. This girl needs her sleep.
