Can’t-miss sales, fashionable finds and worthy reads from this week.
Happy holiday weekend, my friends!
How’s it going?
I know, it’s a bit quiet on this end — but there’s been a lot of spring cleaning happening over here, both physically and mentally. I wrote a post this time last year (exactly, almost) on resisting change and the same mindset rings true. Weird how that works, no?
My heart has felt heavy from Monday’s incident in Manchester (Pit) — and it seems like most of us felt or are feeling the same way. One of my playlists from this week resonated really well with all of my students, so I combined them and re-created them for you in Spotify (here). Weeks like this are very emotionally draining for me at work (leaving little energy for my online life), but I love them nonetheless.
I also hit the two month mark of my BFF’s wedding — which is nerve-wracking — specifically because I’m DJ’ing it! Like, legit DJ’ing — I’ve spent most of my spare time practicing, meeting my teacher in the studio and hoping not to get an eviction notice from my building (I have my own turn tables now). Progress is addicting, huh (Peak)?
Here are this week’s links — as well as a handful of Memorial Day Sales you don’t want to miss…
Sale finds & such
Beach, please: This is the beach bag you need this summer.
So festive: Tell me you don’t need this little watermelon candle. So cute, right?
Accessory must: My favorite summer accessory is a gorgeous pair of teal earrings — these are the perfect size.
Insta-worthy: Coconut embellished espadrilles — these are just as cute as they are fun to say.
Cool kicks: Wait, am I the last person to know about blush-colored Chuck Taylors? I love these!
Summer staple: I bought these nude sandals to wear to weddings this summer — the block heel will make them so easy to walk in. (I actually tried them on and loved them but couldn’t justify paying full-price; they’re on sale now though!)
Intermix: Holy holiday sale! This one is worth browsing — including 40% off already everything that’s already marked down. You need this, though: I bought this navy jumpsuit in Miami and I can’t tell you how many compliments I got — it’s a little bigger in size, I bought a 2 and I’m usually a size 4.
And on that note…
