This week has been relatively “normal.” I think it was the first (almost full) week of normalcy since our move. Of course, we left for Mike’s family’s lake house last night so now we’re traveling again…. but still, I am here for feeling a bit closer to normal!! And I’m so excited for the next few days at the lake.
I went down to Ocean City on Sunday to see Kelly, Mitch, Emma, and Lucy! So fun! We did not plan on matching, but loved it nonetheless. My dress is super old but available on Rent the Runway (+ the long sleeve version is on sale) and Kelly is wearing this Lilly dress (which I also have, ha).
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
I have a few of these scarves, but this colorway is hands down my absolute favorite. It goes with so many of my favorite outfits, is under $50, and looks like a Hermés! Looks great with basics (e.g. white blouse + jeans), navy anything (like how I wore it here), and neutrals (e.g. a camel coat). It transitions so well from late summer all the way through fall.
I thought this was such a great piece to read both as someone who experiences anxiety and as someone in a relationship. Even if you don’t have anxiety or have a romantic partner, chances are someone that you have a relationship with (family member, friend, coworker) does. Lots of valuable takeaways from this that anyone can implement.
THREE // Little Free Library Flower Boxes
I bought a Little Free Library. I couldn’t resist– I’ve been dying to do it and since I get so many great books sent to me, I think it’s a fun way to pass things along. Naturally, I also succumbed to decorating it and taking it up a notch with these flower boxes. Am I nuts?! Maybe. But I can’t wait. I can already picture decorating the boxes with different seasons– mini pumpkins and mums in the fall, pinecones and poinsettias in the winter, etc.
FOUR // Harlowe James– a new to me blog
I tend to keep my Feedly (an RSS aggregator and how I read blogs) a pretty tight ship. I don’t overload it with blogs and look forward every morning to catching up on my favorites. Most I’ve been reading for years and years, but I just love finding a new one to add into the mix. While looking for home inspiration, I found Harlowe James on Pinterest and OMG I am in love. She’s an interior designer by trade and I am just in love with her style. I love finding a blog where I want to be friends with the author, you know?!
FIVE // Humidity Shield
My friend Janelle is a hair tester for Living Proof. (I know, dream side gig, right?) While at Nicole’s bachelorette, she had the entire lineup in the bathroom and let everyone play around with the product. She swore by the Humidity Shield– I was #skeptical because my hair and humidity do not get along. While it didn’t magically transform my hair in the insane mugginess (like basically raining), I noticed a significant difference. Like what would have been a 10/10 frizzball night was more like a 3/10 on the frizziness scale! I’ll take it!
