this friday, i’m in love with…


j.crew’s latest fall arrivals || the weather did something kind of funny this week -it cooled down a lot. there were a couple mornings when it even sprinkled. i know not to get too too excited about the slight change in meteorology (because it’s bound to heat back up again very soon) but the slight reprieve from the heat did make me VERY excited for fall. and mostly just sweater weather. speaking of that, j.crew released their fall collection on tuesday and i want all the things! in reality, i only ordered this sweater (in deep moss!), but there are some seriously cute pieces that would make any closet smile (you know, if closets could show emotion). here are my favorites:


aerie’s bra collection || after falling in love with aerie’s (the lounge wear off-shoot of american eagle) pajama collection last winter, the brand has been on my radar ever since. so when i saw they were having a BOGO event with their entire bra collection, i was intrigued. being small-chested, i surprisingly have a hard time finding bralettes and sports bras that are flattering. most styles have all sorts of bells and whistles for support (which is awesome, just not for me) so they always look a little silly on my body. with that said, i ended up ordering four bras -two bralettes and two sports bras (since two of them were free!) –this one, this one, this one, and this one. hopefully they work but even if they don’t, aerie has free returns (and free shipping) on all bras and bralettes. i’ll keep you posted.


hard knocks || what can i say? this show combines my love for reality tv with my love for football. this season, the acclaimed HBO series follows the tampa bay buccaneers through training camp right up to the start of the regular season. similar to big brother (another summer vice), the show is almost shot in real time which makes following along that much more interesting. though there have only been two episodes so far, my favorite player by far is gerald mccoy –here’s just two examples why.


favorite outfits from the week include: jacey’s work attire, lisa fine’s tips on styling a button-down, jess ann’s boho look, samantha’s gingham dress, and natalie’s cozy sweatshirt dress


a sneak peek of what’s coming next week:

styling my newest natalie borton creation (see her entire collection here)

coffee date at succulent cafe

a NEW fitting room fables post (i plan on visiting j.crew to try on some of the above styles in person)


three things i’m looking forward to this weekend:

friday night date with my husband and our DVR (and take-out from here)

a double date with my parents-in-law here (so fun to have back-to-back dates with our ‘rents!)

a little R&R on sunday afternoon -it has been an exhausting week!


and in case you missed it, here’s what appeared on the blog this week:

favorite bags for fall

end of summer, not quite fall


with packed weekends (and even busier work-weeks, it has been a struggle to sneak in enough photo shoots on the weekend to produce blog content during the week. i apologize for the scattered posts over the course of the past month or so. as we move into fall and eventually the holidays (my favorite times of the year!), i hope to be able to devote more time to creating fun and engaging posts, so hang with me if you can! as always, i appreciate the love and support.

have a wonderful weekend.
