Being on maternity leave has a lot of benefits, one of which is being able to dress down just about every day. And while I’m currently wearing workout clothes as I write this, I sported this easy summer look for a lunch and shopping date in New Albany with my mom while she was still in town post-baby. Had to stop by Dress & Dwell for some new clothes to fit in this weird in-between time.
We hit up The Exchange and sat on their patio for a boozy Tuesday lunch – another perk of maternity leave, cocktails at lunch. I rarely get over to New Albany but the patio at The Exchange, plus the delicious cocktails (I had the ‘Crimson and Clover’ – a super refreshing mix of vodka, cucumber, lemon and more) has me wanting to go back for happy hour or dinner. Seriously, this is not sponsored, I’m just convinced they have one of the best outdoor spaces in the area. If you go, make sure to try the Goat Cheese Fritters and get a side of fries no matter what. So delicious.
One quick comment on this bag – I’ve gotten more compliments on it than any expensive bag I’ve ever owned. This pretty pink cross-body was $25 at Old Navy (got it on sale) but looks WAY fancier. The pink is sold out but the brown is equally cute and looks luxe (and it’s 20% off today). Plus it’s big enough to actually hold your wallet, phone and other random crap without being stuffed to the gills.
