Still missing the kids so much, but I keep getting reports from my parents and Lanier’s parents that they’re having a blast.
Last Friday, I snapped this pic of Wheeler in her new kicks. She’s been begging for a pair of pink “hike-ups” as she called them. When I ordered all their shoes for back-to-school, she finally got her pair. She swears she can run waaaay faster now that she has them. I told her to jump, so I could snap a pic, and she was clearly over it…so this capture happened. Don’t ask, I still don’t know exactly how I did it, but I guess the timing was just right. Levitation.
Speaking of back-to-school shoes, I just scooped up these grey New Balances for the boys and these grey ones with a hint of pink for the girls. Yes, the girls know how to tie their shoes, but you don’t know how much time this saves in the morning when there’s velcro involved. I ordered mine off Amazon, since I couldn’t find this particular pair anywhere else. There aren’t many left, so shop soon if you’re interested.
Last week, I checked out Caviar & Bananas’ new summer sandwiches and they’re all super delicious, but this one was by far my favorite – brie, arugula, turkey and marmalade. Yum! // Kendra Scott Andy Bracelets // J.McLaughlin Wicker Crossbody
Last Thursday night, Lanier and I headed out to the grand opening of new restaurant, Le Farfalle, located on Beaufain Street downtown. For locals, it’s where Leaf used to be. Chef Toscano’s Italian bites were absolutely delicious. We can’t wait to go back soon! In the photo above, can you spot me?
We had the best time!
I wore this dress, part of the anniversary sale. It fits true to size.
Yesterday, I headed out to a blogger brunch hosted by Show Me Your MuMu (based out of Venice Beach, CA). And their vibe is just that, a very laid-back California style. They were in town shooting their latest lookbook for next year, and graciously hosted all of us at The Park Cafe before they headed back home. It was great getting to catch up with some many fellow bloggers in town.
And you can’t go wrong with a little avocado toast. Loving this floral tunic and this dress from their line.
What I Wore

As I mentioned on Monday’s post, I haven’t changed up my make-up or make-up routine much over the past few years. But I was excited to see that the Anniversary Sale carried many of my favorite shades, some I’d just run out of, all in one compact. Not to mention that this blush set and this eyebrow set are both almost 50% off during the Anniversary Sale. Couldn’t pass either up! The blush set actually has a bronzer too. I’ve always used Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Powder in Golden Light (shown above), but now that I’ve see the one that comes in the NARS set, I’m going to give it a try. Especially with packing, it would be so nice not to have to carry so much make-up with me. Same goes for the eyebrow set. I’m used to carrying individual eyeshadow compacts, and now I won’t have to, and the brushes are also included. Bonus.
As for the Dior Overcurl Mascara, this is hands down the only mascara that gives my lashes curl. Trust me, I’ve tried many others and I still always goes back to this one. Granted, I still use an eyelash curler to give it extra curl, but the Overcurl is still the best out there if you want your lashes to curl. My lashes are stick straight. Over the years, my melasma has cleared up a little bit, but I do have some sunspots and blemishes. The YSL concealer I’ve been using works wonders. I can apply it and top it with my bronzing powder and you can barely see any of it. I never like layering on too much make-up, and this looks the most natural because it blends in so well. For my make-up routine, check out this post from a few months ago.
Today is the last day of Kate Spade’s Surprise Sale.
These pave bow studs are some of my favorites. I actually have them in a few colors. These are on sale for only $19 right now and won’t last long!
My white Kate Spade Crossbody is now on sale! Over $100 off!
I’ve loved using mine all summer long!
I’ll leave you with THE cutest watermelon Jacks that just came out! I always love light green and red together. These would be a fun pop of color to add to any outfit. Such a fun mid-summer pair!
And great news! My pineapple Jacks have just been reduced from $148 to $99!
Hope y’all are having an awesome week so far!
