Back today with another installment of this Diary series. I’ve really enjoyed doing them every two weeks! Here’s the last segment.
Some of my favorite iPhone pics over the past two weeks:
Maddie and I knew that it was going to be in the 70s one day so we made plans to find a coffee shop to sit outside. We usually get coffee at least once a week together when we’re both working from home, so we were very fortunate that the good weather lined up with a free afternoon. If you can’t tell from the big smile– it felt so nice to be outside.
This post is pretty much dedicated to spring weather if I’m being honest. I’ve had a near compulsion to snap photos of every bit of green and flowers. Took these linen loafers (c/o, 20% off with CARLY20 at checkout) for a spin.
Dudley Stephens (the company behind these insanely comfortable fleece pullovers) just opened a pop up store in the West Village. I went to a launch party and got to check out the new space! So excited for them. This is their first brick and mortar store and it’s in the perfect spot (400 Bleecker), just down the block from two more of my favorite companies: Margaux and The Daily Edited.
I had a bunch of questions on DM about my pants, they’re from J. Crew a few years ago, but I think these are the same style!
One of the best stoops in the West Village. I mean. The door. The grand entrance. And they nail it in the understated but perfectly maintained flowers.
Meghan and I got together for dinner after the Dudley Stephens event. I was craving a salad, but we ended up at Morandi where we each got cacio e pepe. Much better than the salad I had in mind. I went to bed feeling so full, both from the pasta and from the great conversation we had.
Not the most exciting photo, BUT I’m selling a few things on Poshmark right now. I cleaned out my closet (again) and I’m really trying to pare down what I own. I love each of these items, but I just know I already have too much. Maybe something piques your interest!
I’ve been mostly eating lunch at my desk while working, so to get away from my apartment (which is also my office), I have been taking myself out for coffees to read for about 45 minutes every afternoon I can. If there are fresh almond croissants, I can’t resist one either. Because I’m trying to cut back on my disposable coffee cups, this is forcing me to sit down and enjoy my afternoon coffee versus taking one to go and then just rushing out to the next place. Sometimes I have to skip it altogether because I simply don’t have the time, but it’s made me enjoy the cappuccinos and iced lattes I do have that much more as a result.
Picked up a new book at Little City Books before going out of town. The Great Believers came highly recommended and every review is downright glowing. Can’t wait to really dig into it.
The dogs and I have been greatly enjoying our evening walks around the neighborhood. I’ve been on “leaf watch” taking note of new leaf growth on the trees. It’s THE BEST to witness a street get a little more green with each passing day.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was in Pittsburgh for a hot minute to kick off a partnership with Calia by Carrie Underwood. I am definitely motivated to workout with a cute outfit, haha. Everyone got to pick out there outfit ahead of the trip and my friends and I all showed up in the hotel lobby completely matching!! This is the pink top and the pants (both c/o).
My travel outfit which I wore two days in a row and will probably wear one more time before I’m back home!! Just so comfortable.
In Hilton Head for the weekend and keeping things very, very low key. It’s been nice. On our first day, I had two ice creams. This Haagen Dazs coffee and almond crunch bar was so, so good. I ate it while riding a bike home and it was messy but oh so worth it.
