Keeping it casual


Top:Old Navy | Shorts:Gap Outlet | Sandals:Target | Belt:Target | Necklaces: F21, J.Crew, Accessory Auctions | Bracelets:F21

Sometimes it's nice to just keep it casual and that's exactly what we did this weekend.  For the first time in weeks, we didn't have any scheduled plans or events and just went with the flow.  Friday night we celebrated Cinco de Mayo early with some Mexican food and ritas (remember I love to pre-party), Saturday we lounged by the pool, Saturday night turned out to be a last minute crawfish boil (never turn those down) and Sunday we smuggled an overload of snacks into a movie..and few naps were sprinkled into the mix too! Nothing better than a little bit of rest and relaxation.

A laid back weekend calls for a laid back outfit post.

And since I am keeping it casual today, I thought I would share some of my Instagram (@becauseshannasiadso) photos from the last week or so. I told you we have been taking it easy...just trying to sit back and appreciate the simple things in life. It's good for the soul.


1. Ross is a hard working man..notice what he's holding
2. A butterfly landed on Logan's hand
3. Our impromptu crawfish boil on Saturday
4. Clear SOLO cup...I fill you up with cerveza, limeade and vodka...such a great concoction...PROMISE!


5. Ross and Landry eating the mud bugs
6. A few bracelets from The Webster for Target that launched on Sunday...super cute stuff.
7. Smuggled movie snacks. Anyone ever mixed Milk Duds and popcorn....DEE-LISH!!
8. Logan caught a lizard...this can't be my child!


So, how was your weekend?  Crazy or casual? 


Cheers to taking time to slow down and recharge.
