this friday, i’m in love with…
peony season || it’s the most wonderful time of the year! peonies are back at trader joe’s. i picked up a bunch on my weekly grocery run last sunday (as evidenced by the photo above) and it’s silly how much joy those blooms have brought me. run, don’t walk and go snag yourself a bouquet or five.
lace-up flat espadrilles || after seeing alicia wear them on her recent memorial day getaway, i can’t stop thinking about snagging a pair of flat lace-up espadrilles for myself. while her version are sold out in my size, i have found a few great (and more budgetary) alternatives, including this soludos pair which is under $60!
little victories || there’s really no way to say this without it kind of sounding like a brag, but three pretty exciting things happened to me this week with regards to blogging and i thought it might be nice to share them with all of you! first, i was featured on the liketoknow.it instagram feed which has 2.5 million followers! it has been a personal goal of mine to have one of my outfits posted there, and i can’t believe it finally happened. then the popular photo editing app, @acolorstory regrammed my photo of these cute little succulents in front of the pink wall and will feature the photo in an upcoming email out to their subscribers. color me flattered! finally, i did an interview with jennifer henry-novich of the fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blog, just add glam for her new series, glam girls collective. in the interview we discuss everything from how i got started blogging and my go-to beauty products to what women empowering women means to me. i’m so happy with how it turned out! click here to read.
when it rains, it pours –this time it was in incredible blog-related blessings. thanks for letting me share!
favorite outfits from the week include: natalie’s off-the-shoulder denim dress, julia’s cotton midi dresss, shannon’s off-the-shoulder blouse and cut-off jeans, alicia’s casual sweater and jeans look, and marissa’s black and khaki green ensemble
