Lace Shirts, Banzai, and Summer Lovin'

I would say Happy Monday but I'm really not feelin' it. So, let's just look back on the weekend, shall we?

I've found a new fashion love. Lace shirts. I find them to be quite flattering on me while also being super lightweight which is always a nice thing in this East Coast humidity.


I will tell you right now if you want some... go to Kohl's! I have found four of my favorite lace shirts there and they are always on sale. Double score!
For 10% off until August 24, use the code UBLOGTEN :)

I also picked up my first official Fall piece of clothing. It's "back to school shopping" time so I could justify it even if a) I'm not a student anymore and b) Virginia will still be hot for the next month or two. A light lime green pencil skirt was also purchased. It was the last one on the rack and fit me perfectly. I had to get it, right? ;)

This weekend I also finally got to go to Red Robin. I'm pretty sure it was the first time in four or five years. I'm not much of a burger girl [after all, I was a vegan for two years] but I was craving that Banzai Burger! What's a Banzai Burger, you ask?


It is Heaven on Earth. It's a burger with the usual lettuce, tomato, and all that PLUS pineapple and delicious teriyaki sauce. Ohhh. Myyy. Goodness. I love it so much even if I took one bite, took this picture, and then the whole thing fell apart. I still ate every last bite.

The other awesome thing about the Banzai Burger is that it's named after my favorite beach - Banzai Beach on the North Shore of Oahu. So, just for fun... here I am at Banzai :)


Oh, and the other thing Red Robin is famous for - their Freckled Lemonades. Yum!


The remainder of the weekend was spent either poolside, watching Vampire Diaries, or with that "someone quite special to me." We enjoyed a nice dinner with his mom and spent some time in the city with friends. With all the changes and losses this past year, it is so unbelievably comforting to spend time with someone who's been a huge anchor in my life for years and years. Blessed that we've both been in the same place at the same time again.

Maybe I'll post those pictures someday ;)

P.S. I wonder if anyone has ever used the word "Banzai" as many times in one post as I have...

Love those lacy shirts! I need to get my butt to kohl's! I've never been to Red Robin. We have one here, I've just never ventured in there. I hear great things though.

I just bought a lace shirt and I am at a complete loss on how to style it. It looks ridiculous with a cami under it and I don't think I'm brave enough to wear it with just a bandeau.
