Well hello there Friday! Last weekend I was supposed to be on Nantucket, but we had to postpone our trip. I ended up going down the shore with my boyfriend’s family and it was just a nice and low-key couple of days. I wasn’t totally feeling like myself for various reasons, so it was just nice to have a change of scenery and distractions. (He has a bunch of siblings so there is always something going on.)
We got back early, early Sunday morning and, since I had no plans, I decided to embrace the free day. I went to a 10:30 am movie by myself which was both super weird and perfect. Has anyone else done that?!
I had to include this photo of my friend Rach and me! She does a series on her Instagram where she recreates famous characters. When she asked if I wanted to be Charlotte from SATC, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. It was a super fun shoot, despite a constant drizzle/rain. I bought my shoes and dress from Poshmark and ThredUP. Aren’t the white bow kitten heels as Charlotte as it gets?!
Okay, here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Popsockets
I can’t believe that it took me so long to get on the Popsocket train. Like… where have these little things been all my life. I randomly got one and I don’t think I’ll ever go back. It makes holding a phone so much easier. I thought it would take some time to get used to, but honestly, it felt completely natural within seconds of putting it on. I had a ton of questions about where I got mine– I found it in Francesca’s but you can probably find them just about everywhere!
THREE // Birdies Slippers
Julia did a sponsored post with Birdies at her sister’s bridal shower. As a guest, I received a pair too. Ummm, I’m obsessed. I am a huge slipper kind of girl and basically live in my LL Bean Wicked Good Slippers. But they can get hot for the summer. I love how pretty and feminine the Birdie slippers are, and they look more like shoes than slippers without losing any of the comfort. They are definitely a little bit expensive, but they are totally worth the price if you wear slippers a lot at home!
FOUR // The Summer Edit
Juniper Books (the brilliant brand behind the books with beautiful covers!) reached out to me about their summer edit collection. The three books are gorgeous and I can’t wait to a) read them and b) display them in my apartment. Decorating with books is my favorite! (The books are part of the collab for QuarterLane, a quarterly subscription for books… such a great gift idea!)
FIVE // Wrap Skirt
I don’t know how I missed this skirt when I wrote this post from earlier this week. I was saying how I wanted to buy it in every print and color, and it turns out that it is available in two more colors: navy and coral! Plus it’s 40% off right now! Woo!
