SO! It’s officially summer and getting hot here in good old MN. I approve. ;) That said, I’ve pulled a few items on my wishlist ( literally, some of these are on our wedding registry ) that fit the bill. This cotton v-neck tshirt from J.Crew has quickly become a staple in my closet. Seriously. I have it in grey, but am basically looking to buy ALL of the colors. Because really … when you find a good tee that fits you just right, you gotta capitalize on that. PLUS, they are 30% off right now. The other thing I’m thinking about purchasing ASAP is another pair of Saltwater Sandals. I got some last summer for our trip to Europe, and literally walked 100+ miles in these guys without my feet hurting once. They’re affordable, too! Feel free to shop around these pieces below :
Last weekend, while shopping with my mom, I found myself grabbing three colors consistently : white, black, and various shades of neutrals. My mom kept pointing out other colors that would “look good on me,” but my plain jane self stood firm in her comfort zone. I’m not sure when all of this happened, but my style preference nowadays is a far cry from the fun + bright dresses I used to wear just a few years back. So as I was putting together today’s wantlist, I landed on white. Good old white. With summer on the way and a chaotic schedule piling up, perhaps this is my way of seeking simplicity? The more I think about it … that may just be the case. Happy weekend to you all! Relax + enjoy.
PS. My good friend Cassie of The Veda House is off getting MARRIED this weekend!! So while she’s away celebrating, I am guest posting on her blog today with another wantlist for her notables column. So basically, you get two in one. ;) Feel free to head on over and see what goods I’ve picked out for the home.
I’m slowly becoming into that whole “vintage meets modern” look – maybe even slightly more towards the vintage side of things. Surprise surprise. As we fill our home, I’ve been holding out for more unique pieces, whether we take the time to find them or build it ourselves. And being the impatient person that I am, it’s been difficult to say the least. What I love above everything pulled above is that they still stay fairly warm, neutral, & simple, while having a whole lot of texture. I’m excited to fill our space with more pieces like this! It’ll just take some time, first. Shop everything below :
Even if it’s been a little cooler than preferred, I’ve been so lucky to spend the past week in much warmer weather than back home. And now that we’ve gotten a taste of spring ( to us ), I’ve got my eye on a few new pieces. Since purging my closet a couple months back, I quickly realized that I didn’t have much left for the warmer temps. Woops. I picked up a few new pieces before we left ( like this ), but am left making a list of a few things I need. All of the above, which apparently live in the neutral + denim world, are what I’ve got my eye on so far. These pocket tees from Cuyana look SO unbelievably comfy and this petra bag from Everlane is the perfect size. I mean, you never know when you’ll need to sneak in some food to the movie theatre. Right? You can click through all of these below!
Up here in good old Minnesota, we’re in our THIRD polar vortex. And I’m not here to talk about the weather, but maybe to get a little sympathy. ;) I swear, I’m about ready to drive south on 35 and see what happens. But if I wait patiently enough, we’ll be heading down to New Orleans shortly. Thanks for all your tips about things to see / do there, by the way! I truly appreciate it. But back to today! I’ve curated a little cluster of items I’ve been lusting after, all of which remind me of warmth : both in the literal sense, but also in appearance + tone, too. I’m ready to get warm over here! Please?
