Hey there! A few things:

+ Can I tell you about the worst possible thing to happen to a blogger? When you think you came up with an awesome outfit, only to realize you had actually pinned it years ago? This just happened to me twice. I was so hyped about this look, that came together with a few new-ish to me pieces, until I saw it on my Outfits to Try board on Pinterest (now it lives on my Pin For The Win board.) Oh well. 

+ These jeans! I can't stop wearing them. Should I apologize in advance if my next five posts feature them? I went -WHERE ELSE- to Urban Outfitters, where all the cool kids go, looking for a trendy cut of denim. I tried on both "Mom jeans" (which were the most horrendous thing I have ever put on my body) and these girlfriend jeans, which are an A++. How are they magically the perfect length for me (this never happens!) They are also stretchy, so comfy, and the perfect rise. You don't have to use my affiliate link, but you DO have to buy these jeans. 

+ The best day comes but once a year, and it happened recently! My work friend, Jamie, who is honest to god one of the most hilarious people I've ever met, lets me help her clean out her closet! That night involved Rosé, a novelty print swimsuit, and a LOAD of goodies. I mean, I could have a new signature look with how many oxford button-ups she gave me. Coming soon to a blog near you! #handmedownsarelife

+ Loads more about this purse (that has my name on it!!!) right here

+  I have to give a shout-out to East Nashville, where I've lived on and off since I graduated four years ago (eek!) and absolutely love. Where I live right now, specifically, is my favorite spot I've lived in the entire time I've been in Nashville (I guess I won't say where specifically but, it's right by this mural!) This part of town certainly has its' charms, and I really enjoy a Saturday where I can wander around and don't have to cross the bridge- ha! I've been eyeing this mural for a while, and it seemed like the perfect ode to the neighborhood I love so much!

How cute is my sister?? She's trying to stay off the grid so I won't say her full name. When she came to town a few weeks ago, we brunched at Little Octopus, stopped by this mural, and then spent a long afternoon on the couch. It was pretty perfect.

Since I was off last Friday and Monday, my week has been all over the place (like, more than usual even) but really great! I've had no idea what day it is. And of course there's a long weekend ahead and then another extra short week (because I'm celebrating my birthday in Chicago!) Have a wonderful long weekend and thanks for reading!
