Weekly Wrap Up // Life Update

Happy Friday! So sorry for the hiatus the past week or so, I've been celebrating my 21st between my mom who came down to visit and of course the big day - including drinking around the world! (If you'd like to hear more about that process let me know in the comments below)

Overall August has been a great month for me, but now that my birthday has passed I'm officially in fall mode. Pumpkin spice lattes officially return September 8th but my local Starbucks had the mix yesterday and I got my first one of the season. Disney World has also started putting up the Halloween decorations at Magic Kingdom so all I'm seeing is orange and I love it. Also picked up a blanket scarf and a new pair of booties yesterday and I'm super excited for fall fashion this year. 

My boyfriend was super sweet and picked up these gorgeous pieces from Kendra Scott. Ever since then all I've been seeing is marble and I'm SO tempted to pick up this cover for my MacBook.
It's been raining non stop at work lately (thank you Florida) and working outside is no bueno when you're soaking wet. I recently picked up this rain jacket at North Face (and on sale!) and it's been an absolute life saver. I've been looking at it for a while now and so happy I finally bit the bullet - it's definitely a new favorite.

I'm slowly but surely getting into the tie up gladiator trend and I really want these shoes but it's also almost fall so I'm trying my hardest to restrain myself. Just a quick show of hands is anyone else really into this trend? It reminds me of middle school for some reason but I absolutely love it. You can also see some of my favorites from this trend below:
I've been wearing OPI's Mimosa's for Mr. and Mrs. on my nails nonstop and I'm convinced it's the perfect neutral.

I've been writing lots of thank you cards from my birthday this past week and I forgot just how much I love stationary. Currently I'm using a gorgeous Kate Spade set I received from my friend Hill over at Salsa but I'm also seriously considering ordering all of these for when I run out.
What's been on your radar lately? Let me know! Happy Friday!

  2. Yay so glad you're using the stationary! I'm glad you said that about getting a new rain jacket because it reminded me that I need to send mine into North Face to have the lining replaced. Their lifetime warranty is seriously the best!

  7. Happy belated birthday, and even though I don't drink - drinking around the world sounds so awesome! I'd love to hear what you drank in each country! :) I am loving the marble too, I've been so tempted to get a keyboard skin in the same style for my chromebook!

  8. Happy belated! I really like the gladiator trend , but I've never seen shoes in anything other than leather. Those silver metallic sandals are pure awesome.
    Never heard about drinking around the world - do tell!
