Good morning! I hope all is well and you’re ready for a fun weekend ahead. I realize that lately, I’ve been talking a lot about shopping. I have been on the hunt (and still am) for a few last things for June’s festivities, so more balance to come soon, promise. Someone suggested that I share more of my recipes on my blog vs. on stories, so I am going to capture some this weekend to add. I seriously love feedback from you, so if there’s something you want to see more of, please send me a DM or email and I will (most likely) make it happen!
Starting with a bang! And because they are new in. I saw these via By Far on Instagram and they immediately struck me. I thought about them for a few days in a row and how incredible they would be for my wedding weekend, honeymoon, and beyond. This isn’t a typical buy or splurge for me (luckily I caught a 24-hour flash sale) but I just had to have them. I am happy to invest in a few nice things for our upcoming special weekend. They are even better in person and look so beautiful on! I wasn’t sure how I felt about the translucent trend at first, but I have officially jumped aboard the bandwagon. A handful around the web I like…
I bought my first pairs of Boyish Jeans and I am in love. I got the Cody shorts in ‘Vertigo’ and ‘Don’t Look Now’. I don’t remember the last time I came across a pair of shorts I love this much. The denim is soft, the cut is so flattering, and they are so comfortable. I will be wearing these all summer! I went with my normal jean size.
Alighieri jewels have been hot wishlist items for a year and I finally decided to order a couple of things and I am such a big fan! I got this necklace and these earrings, and they are both some of my favorite jewelry pieces I own now. They are so unique, so special, and the quality is incredible. Such a great jewelry designer to follow and treat yourself every once in a while or add to your birthday wishlist, special occasion, etc.
I am working with their team and have a few posts coming up, so you’ll see more, but I have to share now because most are on sale! I was browsing their shoes and oh my goodness… blown away. In the past month, I have ordered these, these, these and these –– all are so gorgeous. I also love these (so LOQ), these (very Chloé), these (oh hey YSL), and these (just plain fun).
A friend of mine posted about this book on stories and it looked very familiar. I checked my Amazon order history and there it was, a 2017 order that arrived and I sat on my bookshelf and forgot about. This happens every so often with me, haha. She and I have the same taste in books (suckers for self-helpery), so I gave it a go. I swear these types of books find me when I need them most. Similar to when I stumbled upon The Power of Now when living abroad in Sydney and grabbed it from my roommate’s bookshelf to peruse while laying by the pool. It ended up changing my life in a day or two of cruising through the whole book. You Are a Badass reminds me a lot of how I felt back then reading by the pool… weight lifted and perspective changed. One thing that I loved though, is Jen is hilarious. I was lolling throughout chapters and finished the book in 2 days. Please read, it’ll do nothing but make you laugh, life your spirits, and remind you to live presently!
Have the best weekend, friend! x
