I’m Loving: Transitional Pieces

This is definitely one of the most awkward times of year to shop, especially if you’re like me and like a good bargain but would still rather shop for fall than summer. The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is on Monday (more on that to come) but other than that, I’m in complete fall mode save for any exceptional summer sale that comes across my radar.

Anyway, I’ve rounded up some pieces that mostly fall into the wear now/wear later category, and they’ll stick with you for years to come because they’re pretty timeless and versatile (the best kind of investment!). Everything except this blazer is under $100 and you can consider this my first wishlist as summer winds down!

A Great Weekend + A Easy Outfit

And just like that, it’s Monday again! This weekend was really one of the best. I’ve been in and out of town pretty much constantly since the beginning of July, and this was the first weekend during that time in DC where we haven’t really had many structured plans or obligations. As much as I love to travel and pack my days off with fun + productive things, something I’m trying to get better about is learning to relish downtime. It’s not something that comes naturally, but I’m so glad to be trying to prioritize it right now. More on this in another post, but a little more about my weekend + this outfit after the jump!

Friday Things

Friday Things

Man, what a week it’s been. The past few days have been especially rough with the horrifying things that have been happening in the world. It’s hard to imagine that so many senseless issues and acts continue to be our reality in 2017, and we can only try to optimistically hope the world becomes a better, less scary place. Seeing the violence in nearby Charlottesville–a city I visited last fall and one that friends have called home for years–is heartbreaking. Stay safe and strong, everyone.
