Mixing Patterns

My favorite thing to do lately is to mix patterns. I just love the way they clash together, but somehow work at the same time. Since it's almost the fourth of July, I haven't taken off all my red, white and blue outfits all week. I really love the nautical colors, and I feel like they work so well together. July 4th is one of my favorite holidays, and I can't wait to watch fireworks & BBQ all day.

This week is already going by so fast and believe it or not, I am back in the gym. I decided that it's about that time to start working out again considering I took about a year off because I was so busy. I joined this beautiful gym near my house that just opened less than a year ago and I love it. I'm really excited to get back in shape, and feel healthier now that I have the time to do so. It's always important to take care of our bodies and considering I am still pretty young, I want to make it a priority. 

So what do you guys have planned for the weekend? I'm spending the fourth around the house and watching fireworks at night, but Friday and Saturday I will be dancing the night away down the shore and in Atlantic City for Bill's birthday. Pretty excited to get away for a few days! Hope you all have a great hump day!
