I'd like to think of myself as a fairly uncomplicated person. It doesn't take a whole lot to make me happy. I don't need big fancy gestures, loads of money spent or to be lavished with anything (other than attention and maybe the occasional sweet treat). Sometimes I just really enjoy doing nothing under the guise of barely doing anything.

So on seemingly the first perfect weather weekend this spring, a lazy Sunday was spent at the park in my new favorite (almost) shoes, drinking too much fresh-squeezed lemonade, laying about while I got my hair part sun burned and stumbling upon a art festival that also happened to have some pretty spectacular guilty pleasure eats - funnel cake and cupcakes on the same day? Yes, please.

What are some things that you like to do that barely takes any efforts but still totally makes your day?

  1. The sunshine makes everything just feel so much better and easier doesn't it. I like to just sit and watch Elodie running about at the park or in the garden squealing "bubbles mummy" or the calm that descends on a Saturday mid-morning when she's napping, husband is at golf and I can curl up with a cup of tea and a magazine. All fairly simple, low-cost pleasures but they make my day :-)

    1. Curling up to read is an absolute luxury, I love it!

  2. Taking a walk on a day with beautiful weather and just enjoying the sights and surroundings. I did that yesterday with the beautiful spring weather that we had in DC and got myself some bubble tea and a cupcake! ;)

  3. hi Lisa! Oh you are talking right down my alley! Visiting family and friends is my favorite thing to do, which we did yesterday. I love to stubble onto Art Shows, too. I'm glad you thought those Tiffany Box blue heels were awesome. I loved them - so had to share.

    1. My first time wearing them was for a trade show (I know, risky for my feet!), but they are surprisingly comfy and well-cushioned.

  5. This outfit is a great mix of girly and tough! Yum on the funnel cake AND cupcakes! I love just talking a walk with my hubby and the dogs on a warm spring day. :)

  9. Great bag! And I love the pink and camo together! I am still waiting for our perfect weather to arrive so I can have a day just like that! I think it might happen this weekend so I'm excited :-)

  10. The artwork is stunning! I am so jealous of your day right now! Funny how you were perusing art and so was I, in preparation of this week's theme (Works of Art Week). Only I bet your experience was infinitely more visceral than sitting in front of a computer and clicking links. :D

    Camo and pink - who woulda thunk it? Why, supermegafoxyawesomehot fashionista Lisa, of course!

  13. I like the pink and camo, what a fun combo. As of simple pleasures, coffee and a fancy bagel is such a treat, or simply being able to watch a chick flick, both of those are such a great!

  16. Your weekend description pretty much says it. Summer is such a relatively short and elusive creature around here, so a day spent lying in the grass, surrounded by sun and the activity of others (plus some kind of sweet and refreshing treat) is the best! I'm not quite there yet, unfortunately. I was misled by Friday's balmy albeit windy 73 degrees, and then almost died the following evening on a night out where it dropped to 23! ouch!!

    I love pink and camo. so much!

  17. I have been in love with that jacket since i first saw it on Atlantic Pacific blog.. one of the best military jacket ever. The fuchsia bag and flower brooch softened and balanced the look perfectly. I have the same jut TOMS shoes.. they are the best :)

  20. I'm dying over that bag! Such a gorgeous color!!
    I'm all about the simple things as well. This weekend I was so happy to have macarons in an assortment of flavors, cook a dinner that was simple to make but still yummy and be able to have dinner outside because the weather was so cooperative. Not so much now with this cold front, but I live for the days when I can leave the windows open or be outside with just a jacket.

  23. Having sunshine can really make or break your day. We have had horrible weather this year for Spring so just getting outside to enjoy it by walking the dog is lovely.

    Also my all time favourite moment of the day is after supper when my hubby and I watch a bit of TV and I lay my head on his lap while he caresses my hair. Nothing feels quite as relaxing or as safe as that.

  25. Ooh I love the pink with camo in your outfit today!

    Anything that is free that I can do outside in the sunshine instantly makes me happy. Or even just being able to open up all the blinds and letting the house air out on a breezy warm day.

    1. I've only got a few weeks where the weather will cooperate enough so that it is actually beneficial to open a window to let in the breeze - soon it'll be way too humid and hot!

  26. I'm so jealous of your perfect weather sunny weekend. It's been rainy and cold here since last Friday, so I just enjoyed lounging around my apartment and watching movies with family/friends. When the weather is nice and sunny, I'm pretty happy eating barbecue with my family on the patio at my mom's house while my nieces and nephews splash around in the pool. I love festivals too....mostly because of all of the food. The funnel cake and cupcake sounds like the perfect ending to a perfect day.

  27. You must've been at Piedmont - it was my favorite weekend place in Atlantic during good weather. There's nothing I enjoy more than outdoor strolls through festivals/events during warm weather.

  34. Masculine + feminine style = cool!

    A walk in the park or mall, or simply a nap totally makes my day. Doing something other than the usual is beneficial for the mind and health.

    Have a great day!

  37. I would never think to put pink and camo together but it totally works! My Sundays consist of sitting on the couch and catching up on my DVR. I even refuse to clean. I think there always needs to be a day of rest in the week!

  38. Looks like you had a great weekend! I love lazy weekends but they don't happen much anymore since we are busy all weekend with your little boy. Lots of fun and can't wait to start lounging by the pool while my son & hubby play. Love your outfit! Your heels are adorable - it looks like they are blue with pink trim? such a pretty combo!

  49. One thing that makes me really happy is crafternoon with my friends. We spend the afternoon crafting (duh!), and as I was recently given some resin and resin moulds, I think we're going to try to make resin jewellery next - that or make plushies! And baking - my friend has a two-year-old daughter and I have a bunch of cute animal cookie cutters, so this is a date destined to be awesome and fun.

    You look so cute, as always, and I really like how you prettied up the army jacket with a flower! It inspired me to put flowers on two of my spring jackets, too! Oh but those (almost) favourite shoes of yours look pretty rad, in a medieval wench sort of way - where did you get them? :)
