Photo Diary: A Day of Indulgence

After an exhausting and stressful week at work filled with software training, designing, and errand-running, I was in need of some serious pampering.  I have Fridays off so I threw on my favorite heels and drove to Little Rock to shop and sip lattes for the day with the promise of a wonderful date with my boyfriend that evening.  Here are just a few snippets from my fabulous day of indulgence. Enjoy!

I started the day with a stop at a The Blue Brick Boutique in downtown Hot Springs. I recently discovered this adorable boutique carries Kendra Scott jewelry so naturally I purchased the Danielle earrings and the Arden drusy bracelet.

The interior is modern and the lattes and baked goods are divine! I sipped a gorgeous latte while skimming an art magazine featuring an article on an annual music festival hosted in my hometown. Can’t wait to don my flower crown for Valley of the Vapors!

There was only one tiny problem with us attending…my footwear. I had worn my favorite nude pointed heels and I was not about to ruin them walking through mud to a bonfire. The solution? Being the gentleman he is, Colton walked me across the street to DSW and bought me a pair of seersucker Sperrys!

Reading our minds, one of Colton’s friends even exclaimed, “This is where the magic happened!” Lights hung from the rafters of the red barn next to the fire and it looked magical, just like the night I first laid eyes on my handsome boyfriend.
