Woah friends! What a busy and wonderful week it has been! As you may have seen on Instagram, yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to speak at my alma mater, the University of Florida, to a class of business & retail students about my career path in retail and my tip and tricks for them to land their dream job. I was such a humbling experience to speak with students whose shoes I was in just 5 years ago (omg time flies!!) I had a blast and it was neat to see everyone respond so positively! So thankful for a great day (and thank you so all the students who attended both in-class and online, y’all rock)!
I’ve been really thinking more and more about why investment bags are so important. When you buy a great quality bag, it lasts for so much longer and has timeless appeal! Now that I bought my first Tory Burch, and I know what awesome quality it is, I’m thinking this cross body bag is next on my list of “big girl investment bags”. This is the Mini Robinson, and I tried it on in store and I feel majorly in l-o-v-e! It’s the perfect size for running around on the weekend! Any of y’all have it? Any reviews?
J. Crew has some seriously gorgeous new arrivals, and I love that even though the beginning of fall clothing is coming, they didn’t shy away from color! You know the pink-lover in me is jumping for joy about that 🙂 Here are a few of the items I added to my ever-growing wish list:
Mixed Stripe Tee (you know I’m a sucker for a stripe!) // Crystal-Embellished Tuxedo Shell // Tassel Scarf // Swing Sweater // Peplum Striped Top // Tortise Flower Necklace // Vintage Scarf Dress (so ladylike- I love!)
I tried this dress on twice in the past month, and I fall in love with it every time! It’s got the absolute perfect fit, and the hardest part for me is picking my favorite pattern (there are 6 gorgeous ones to pick from!) If I wasn’t trying so hard to bulk up my savings account right now, this beauty (official name: the Windsor Dress) would definitely be coming home with me!
Who saw this precious story about the hugging puppies at a Georgia shelter who were hours away from “the end” when their picture went viral and they were able to find a foster home (but are still looking for a fur-ever home). As a puppy mom of a rescue dog, my heart breaks at these pictures and stories (especially because one of the pups is a hound like my beloved Buddy!) If you are looking for a dog, please consider your local shelter- those dogs will melt your heart and bring lots of love to your life! #adoptdontshop
I’m sure I’m a little late in hopping on the “this song is awesome and on repeat on my running playlist” bandwagon, but I can’t get enough of this jam! It just pumps me up!
Hope y’all have some wonderful plans this weekend! It’s supposed to be pretty rainy here all weekend, but I have a casual date night planned tonight so that should bring a ray of sunshine 🙂 Have a fab one y’all and thanks for reading! XO
