Weekend Recap {Lunch Dates & Tailgates}

Last Friday the girls and I kicked off the weekend with a fabulous lunch al fresco.  Apparently there was a sale going on, the real kind of "Back To School" sale most parents probably wish for, 


and after a few glasses of refreshing sauvignon blanc and excited chatter about the weekend's upcoming events, we decided to head to the mall to run a quick wedding errand for L who's getting married next spring (yay!) and for a little "window shopping."

Before we got far, we were sidetracked by Sephora.  How could you not be?  I swear that store has a magnetic pull that draws you in whether you like it or not.  It's like the girly girl's ultimate playground, and within seconds we found ourselves puckering our glossed lips, batting our lengthened lashes, and complimenting each other on the funky eyeshadows we bravely tested (below), but would never really wear in real life.  Let's just say green and blue never looked so cool and K-wow, you should get a part-time job as a make-up artist.  

 {Sephora's New Colorful Palette.  13 different compacts featuring 4 coordinated eyeshadows, a matte liner, and application how-to's, $24}

We then decided we wanted "grown-up" friendship bracelets.  Studs, glass crystals, and leather beats (by a long run) cheap thread braided bracelets of elementary school's past.
{J.Crew's Jewel Stud Double Wrap Bracelets, $29}

Of course no trip to the mall would be complete without a little shoe shopping fun, and I wanted nothing more than to prance around in these fierce little babies.  Sexy suede and dangerously sick spikes would be the cherry on top of any rocker chic ensemble. 
{Sam Edelman's Lorissa Peeptoe pumps, $200} 

I almost escaped purchase free, but the last and most tempting stop proved to be too much for my willpower too handle.  $10 off the orig. price was enough for me to whip out the visa, and I headed home with a much needed basic in hand.
  {Urban Outfitter's Ankle Cigarette Pant, $49, but currently $39 in-stores and online}
  
The rest of the weekend was full of friends and football fun! 
  What did you do this weekend?  Happy Monday, loves!
