The Best of the Midwest | A Blog by Jen Keesee
If you're a parent, you know that it's hard to get away for 5 minutes let alone a whole weekend! It's truly Harper's world and I'm just living in it... So when a few friends asked me to go with them to a Women's Retreat on the Country Club Plaza in KC for the weekend, well, lets just say they didn't have to twist my arm!
Luckily I have a fabulous hubby who was all for a daddy/daughter date night watching Toy Story 3 and eating popcorn. Now don't get me wrong. I love being a mom. In fact it truly is the BEST job in the world! But there is something about a girls weekend getaway to unwind and refresh that is so absolutely necessary every now and then. You know... for your sanity!!!
To top if all off, I got first dibs on a few pieces hot off the Spring Collection from the Rollin J just in time for the weekend. Like, GET IN MY CLOSET!!
Kansas City just happens to be one of the prettiest cities in the Midwest so it was the perfect opportunity for a fun little photoshoot (thanks to my girls for playing along). In all honesty I can be a total awkward turtle but when you have a friend like Jess singing and twirking to Rihanna's "work, work, work, work, work, work" in the background, you can't help but to have a good time! (I apologize in advance for getting that song stuck in your head!)
This cardigan is super soft and literally goes with everything!!
All the heart eyes for this detailed lace top!
This gorgeous wall mural just happened to be a few miles from where we were staying in downtown Kansas City. It was meant to be!
Give me all the pretty Spring florals!!
Then wouldn't ya know it. The coolest little coffee joint was right around the corner. No girls weekend is complete without a fancy, fresh latte. You know what they say...coffee in one hand, confidence in the other. We'll have to go back in the summer when they open up the garage doors for sure!
But seriously, you know anything Shelly Jo does at The Rollin J is on point. So be on the lookout for new Spring Arrivals coming soon!
