A Late Summer Outfit

It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to an end soon, especially since it’s still sweltering here in North Carolina! Since it will still be warm for another two months (at least!) I’m trying to stay in a warm weather mindset, although I am very ready for fall. I haven’t done much shopping this summer, but when I have purchased pieces I have made sure to buy items that I can wear next summer as well as transition them into cooler weather.

When I saw this midi skirt earlier this month I immediately fell in love. It’s colorful and comfortable, so I immediately purchased it for my Toronto trip. I like that it can be dressed up or worn more casually with a tee. I think it will be really cute with a light sweater or even add a denim jacket to this outfit for early fall. I also really loved this summer sweater. It’s a color I don’t have much of in my closet and I thought I could pair it with jeans and easily throw a cardigan or jacket over it as we transition into fall. I’ll call that a win! I can’t go without talking about this bag and these chunky heels. These two have been standouts for me this summer. I wear them both all the time! The crochet bag has surprised me because it’s held up much better than I thought it would and it actually holds SO much. And the chunky heels go with everything and are so comfortable, even for walking or standing for long periods of time. I’ll be sad to say goodbye to them come fall!

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
