We’re over here in crunch time before we head to New York next week! No doubt lots of party prep ahead this weekend, but here’s what we’re thinking about:
I found this book
a few months back when a friend gave it to another friend at a baby shower. Shout out to Annie (the best book giver) and Jenna (the mama to be, any day now!) I bought it for the design, like usual, but my kids have LOVED learning about the speeds of boats, tennis balls, planes, the earths orbit and more!
I find myself buying a new trench
each fall. Silly, I know. But i always find a new one I love most. This one arrived this week just in time for the rainiest weather. I’ve loved it! // And just like a good trench, I always fall for leather
jackets around this time. This fall, it’s this one
Listening: to this song
on repeat. And this one
too cause I CANT HELP IT. I just love me some Justin.
Okay, for decorating: my obsession for watercolor has reached the next level. So much color happening in my house. It’s therapeutic, refreshing to add more color to my white walls that typically don’t have much but blacks and neutrals for their decor. I feel liberated, guys! Join me!
I’m opening a new photo studio! It’s almost open, just adding the final touches and I can’t wait to share it with you all! pssss, it’s going to be open to a few of you photographers that want to shoot there with me! Stay tuned!
Feeling: Fresh faced with this face mask at night. You know me and night routines, and omggggg guys. I swear it’s clearing up my acne scars. Get on it!
Wearing: This top
and this tunic
. ON repeat all week. It’s still mega hot here so I’m not welcoming Fall fashion yet.
Worrying: About juggling everything. I always have a lot on my plate but it feels particularly heavy lately!
Anticipating: Our upcoming trip to New York with Munchkin
and June & January
. Some of my favorite people in the world are going and I can’t wait to connect!
WEARING: Old Navy producing some good stuff for me this Fall season! Adding plaids galore on the cheap. Here’s some items that I’ve picked up: Boxy top // Clogs (I have the t-strap but it sold out online!) Floaty Plaid Midi Plaid split midi // Plaid pixie pants // This pretty mesh back tank for work outs!
READING: I loved watching Call the Midwife on PBS and finally read the first memoir. I love learning about a time period in such an all encompassing way – from all walks of life and from many perspectives. Definitely a good read!
LISTENING: Nothing I love more than a new album release from a favorite band. I listen to it all the way through and then drag my favorites into a playlist for later. Metric (good!), Beirut (lovely) Beach House (let down).
WATCHING: I normally can’t deal with 1920s London settings, maybe it’s the accents and the dialect that have become overdone, but Peaky Blinders is legit. And I haven’t been this wrapped up in a love story in YEARS. Definitely gritty at times, but such a cool story about family above all else. Netflix (what else?) and only 6 episode seasons so it’s not overwhelming to dive into.
FEELING: Content. Absolutely nothing that was causing me stress is resolved, but maybe the control freak in me finally broke! Such a good feeling.
