Weekly Roundup

September 4, 2020

J.Crew Sweater Blazer Styled I wit & whimsy

This week I felt so invigorated. As trite as it sounds the near arrival of Fall is bringing me more joy than usual as I look to find ways to still enjoy it despite the ongoing pandemic. And all the Fall content! Man oh man did I have fun working on so many fun posts, projects and collaborations I’ll be revealing very soon. I feel like I am *finally* coming out of the burnout I was feeling so deeply the past two months. And it felt really great to see all the comments and get all the DMs this week about how much you guys are already loving the Fall content I started posting this week! Thank you for the warm reception – it made me so happy.

I’m finally taking some time off next week so I’ll be on a limited posting schedule – you can keep an eye out for a fun Home related post Wednesday and then of course the Weekly Roundup but otherwise I’ll be a bit quieter around these parts and on Instagram (and turning off my DMs but always feel free to email me!) I am so looking forward to some much needed R&R.

My Monthly Highlights newsletter goes out tomorrow – if you’re not yet on the list you can sign up here! It always includes a little status update on the month and then I spotlight a few of the month’s favorite posts + share the top 3 most-sold items for that month.

This week’s roundup is a length one – as they always are for holiday weekends! I added in a section specific to items I own that are now on sale, too. Hope you guys have a wonderful long weekend!

WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:

  • A reader shared a fundraiser she’s working on that I recently donated to and would love if any of you are willing to join me in doing so! It’s raising money to help Black Owned Restaurants and feed those in need.
  • Tested out the new Ilia Beauty Balmy Gloss. It’s part lip oil, part lip gloss. The texture is super smooth and it feels hydrating with a nice sheer wash of color. The brand was kind enough to send them to me at launch and I have only managed to find the shade PETALS in my post-move mess but it was the perfect pinky-peach for my skin tone. If you’re not familiar with this clean makeup brand you can find my whole review here.
  • Finished Majesty. I read it in five nights and absolutely loved it! If you liked American Royals you’ll definitely enjoy this book.
  • I also finished the French TV series Call My Agent that I had mentioned a few weeks back. I absolutely loved this show. I found myself laughing out loud every single episode. It was also such a fun way to help me practice my French (there are English subtitles however when needed). They are releasing a fourth and final season and I can’t wait to see how it ends!
  • Updated my Home Shop to include the pieces I’ve been buying for my new spot. So many good finds!
  • I also totally updated the Seasonal Favorites and the Cozy & Casual portions of The Shop!
  • I finalized my window treatments with Everhem! I am so excited to be working with this female-founded small business that launched in 2019 to take the headache out of styling your windows to make them both beautiful and functional. I am really so excited to see how what we chose will bring life to my new space.

  1. As a fall-loving reader I have been here for this week’s content! Thanks for noting the updated Common Projects post – I just ordered a pair of white sneakers and have been thinking of how to style them for fall and that post is great styling inspo. Hope you enjoy your time off!

  2. Meghan – quick question. For the &other stories oversized beige sweater – is it scratchy at all? Do you wear a tank underneath it? I love how cozy it looks and think I am going to order.
