We made it! This week was a doozy. Long and stressful days, not enough sleep…you know how it goes. I’ll be spending the weekend catching up with friends and my life to do list and I’ll see you back here on Monday! Enjoy this week’s roundup…

  • I saw an ad this week for Kate Hudson endorsing a new line of athletic wear called Fabletics and loved what I was seeing! Anyone bought anything?
  • I read about this site in Lucky Magazine the other week and just love it.
  • This video made me want to slather on the SPF.
  • I loved looks from Mara, Sam and Julia this week.
  • Extra, extra! Shopbop is having a huge shoe sale! (Including my favorite boots).
  • Hallie wrote a post that I just loved and found so inspiring.
  • Alicia visited one of my favorite brands, Everlane.
  • I have such a case of wanderlust
  • I’m feeling the need for more workout clothes and am loving these

In case you missed it…

I always think of the word “flounce” whenever I wear one of these J.Crew skirts (see here, here) but then I had the bright idea to Google the definition of it and was a bit shocked.

flounce1
verb
  1. 1.
    go or move in an exaggeratedly impatient or angry manner.

Granted, patience isn’t one of my strong suites so I guess maybe it is appropriate? Either way I have gotten so much wear out of these skirts that they remain flounc-y in my own mind, mmk? I have been feeling rather uninspired by my summer dresses this season so I’m already looking forward to fall inspired looks. How good with this dress be with these shoes?

And a quick PSA: J.Crew is offering 25% off their new styles right now- a perfect excuse to stock up! (And sister site Madewell has 20% off select styles!)

Outfit: Joie tank (last seen here) and shoes (on sale and last seen here!), J.Crew skirt (similar) and jacketBaubleBar necklace, Ray Ban sunglasses, Forever21 bag

Wednesday Wish List

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 9.50.10 PM

I finally got in some much needed down time yesterday and was able to catch up on the blog and also the ever important Pinterest. I am feeling so ready for fall but savoring summer after 4 days in California. I almost always shop online at the same culprits: Shopbop, Nordstrom, ASOS (psst…huge sale going on right now)…but last night I could not stop pinning things from Revolve Clothing. Several pieces are included in this week’s Wish List but you can find other “wants” here, here and here, too. Just proof that sometimes you need to expand your horizons!

Hope you’re having a great week…!
