reading this week.
two of my favorite things right now: domino magazine and la croix.
jeremy and i may or may not have matched the other day when we went to the grocery store. whoops!
my newest plant. aloe vera.
the curling iron and i had been having a rough week. (three burns too many) so i broke down and bought this guy. it makes that burn go away as soon as you apply it to your skin.
one of God’s natural miracles.
hope that you are having a lovely week. we are dreaming of cooler weather, football season, and life to slow down a little. fall hurry up! i am ready for you!
hello! happy thursday!
1- i just ordered this book. i’m always up for new recipes and cookbooks! my mother in-law started my collection and i’ve totally become a cookbook addict!
2- so, i lost my make-up bag on the way to spain. at the time i thought it was the worst thing that could possibly happen, BUT to be honest its given me a chance to research and find awesome new beauty products that i love. and this bb cream by dr. jart is a new favourite.
3- ok, confession. i LOVE netflix. jamie and i have been watching dawson’s creek, but lately i’ve started watching felicity and i’m loving it. ben is pretty dreamy and the late 90’s and early 2000’s were absolutely awesome. do you have any old shows that you watch?
around this time of year, i always get a new planner. i guess, it’s always with the changing of the school year- even thought i’m not in school. new planner in august. new calendar in january. confession, i live circa the dark ages. yes, i still use a planner. i have tried to move from using a planner to having my schedule all on my computer and phone, but it just doesn’t work. i keep a much more detailed schedule in my planner and put important things on my phone so that it can pop up as a notification reminder.
i just can’t give up my planner. anybody else like me!? there is just something about having it all down on paper. something about writing it down.
but as i have been searching for my new planner, i have realized how picky i really am about what my planner looks like and how it functions. are you like this, too? well, in my search i have found some pretty cool ones and thought that i’d share- for those of you still in the dark ages with me.
Of course, Martha Stewart has a DIY on making a leather planner. Martha, just come out with a planner already. We all know it would be perfect.
these planners from poketo are completely customizable. and HOW CUTE. that pink one is to die for.
both of these planners can be found at the paper source, which is easily one of my favorite stores to browse around for hours.
and this is possibly the cutest thing that i have ever found on pinterest. blogger of take two they’re small is brilliant.
what is your favorite planner? i’d love to know! have a wonderful wednesday- the work week is half way over! yay!
I thought that I’d also share my Madewell favorites!
stripes on stripes. plus a cardigan. i am in heaven.
sidewalk skimmer in leopard
i would wear these every single day this fall.
softshade sweatershirt dress
comfy sweatshirt material, but qualifies as office clothing.
comfy office attire? it kind of feels like cheating, but in a way that you don’t feel the least bit guilty.
ok, so you know there are some of those stores that you admire and admire for a long time but never buy anything from there?
well, confession madewell is that store for. I LOVE THEIR CLOTHES. seriously love them, but i’ve never bought one stitch of clothing from them.
i mean how many times have i posted about their barnwood boot?! i feel like x1000. (here)
i don’t know if its because i’ve never set foot in one of their store or what (pretty sure they have one in ATX too)– but all i do know is that needs to change asap.
i mean, come on! look at those denim shirts! i could practically live in those everyday.
well, anyways, here are three of my favourites (besides the barnwood boot – we all know i love it.) :
silk tealace tank
the sanddrift platform
rivet & thread popover & western jean shirt in desert willow wash
thought i’d share a few things that were really inspiring to me lately-
(all images can be found on my pinterest)
i’ve been craving order, simplicity, and streamline neatness + tidiness. black and white give me a sense of those things. i like the uniformity it gives.
in order to try and create a little slice of this need for order in my life i’ve started getting rid of tons of stuff at the house. it feels pretty good to get rid of things you never use/ wear.
the most recent thing i’ve done is go through my closet – i have things in there from high school. let the purging begin!
hello! this past weekend mary and i have been away in jekyll island, ga at our good friend lauren’s wedding! she looked divine and her wedding was a nautical dream– complete with navy monograms, seersucker bridesmaids dresses and lawn games (croquet + bocce ball)! seriously, martha stewart would be impressed.
anyways, here are some pictures from the weekend. hope you had one as filled with love, laughter, and friends (that are like family) as we did!
tomorrow i’m headed to nashville and couldn’t be more excited! wednesday= friday for me. yay!
mary, jeremy, jamie, and i are going on a roadtrip from nashville to georgia.
i’m going to be honest- i’m not too fond of roadtrips. i’d much rather fly. wouldn’t you?
i’ve asked everyone create their own playlist– so hopefully that will prove to be at the least entertaining.
any suggestions for a good roadtrip song?
summer is one of my favorite seasons, but once it hits july and august it is TOO HOT unless you are by a pool. and i have been so busy this summer that i have not had the chance to take a day and relax by the pool.
next week, we are headed down to south georgia for one of our very best friend’s wedding. when we are not at wedding festivities, i plan on relaxing at the pool and the beach in all my spare time! cannot wait! our trip to spain was very busy and such an adventure, so i am looking forward to some r & r in georgia.
what is your favorite way to relax during the summer time?
happy wednesday, mary.
+1 – my friend beth had this nail polish on last weekend and i fell in love with it. looked all over for it — and finally ordered some online. should be here soon it’s called bikini-so-teeny!
+2 – because even though it is the worst day ever doesn’t mean you can’t go through it stylishly.
+3 – fell in love with this cuff by youngfrankk
