in the life of P & P!

Hello, everybody! I hope you all had a fun and refreshing weekend (I know I did!). I'm not sure about anyone else, but to me, the spring season always brings with it a little extra hustle and bustle than the fall. There's SO much going on, and it seems like I don't have time to do it all (typical... ;). However, I thought I'd do a quick round up of my recent #ootd pictures from Instagram (if you don't already, follow me at @poisedandpreppy!).

1 // getting ready for a girls' night on the town

I wore this look out with a couple of girlfriends to go get Mexican food and see Divergent (such a good book, btw!). It's so nice to take a night to kick back, laugh a lot (until you get shushed in the movie theater!), and just relax with great friends. I swear they're the only thing that keeps me sane ;)!

2 // mixing it up at spring barbecues 

After my Saturday soccer game, we headed to a family friend's birthday barbecue. The weather was breezy, balmy, and beautiful. There were also lots of yummy treats (coconut bites, Brazilian sausage, and Reese's cupcakes...oh my!). I so enjoyed being able to slow down and relish the company of friends I don't get to see very often. Plus, I got to wear shorts for the first time this season!!

so excited that the weather is (finally) warming up :)

those are actual jean shorts you see!

this ella moss top is ethereal... makes me feel like a fairy!

Blouse: Ella Moss (old!)
Watch: Michael Kors

3 // attending fancy evening functions

That night, I had the pleasure of attending a full night of socializing, munching, and (amazing) singing. It was too fun to play dress up for the night and really made me appreciate the life I'm able to live. Weekends can just put you in the best mood, can't they? :)
