Weekly Wishlist

So I’m clearly in a very Fall mood these days. Sweaters, coats, and comfy tees for layering are definitely all on my radar right now. I’ve mostly been “window shopping” or I’ll fill my shopping bag online and then just leave it after realizing the total is into the thousands. I did, however, purchase a couple things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I linked them in the little widget below if you’re curious. The red Tory flats above are included in the sale as well, so if you’re in the market, go grab these (they come in black and gold, too!). I hope everyone’s week is starting on a high note! Check back here tomorrow!

Weekly Wishlist: #NSale

Click to Shop!

Long time no see, ya’ll! I took a week or so off after July 4th to just kind of enjoy summer a bit. I’ve been frolicking around Madison, shopping, and working this past week, but I’m back with some fun things planned for the next few days. First up is the Weekly Wishlist, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale edition! Everyone touts this sale as the best of the year and that’s no joke, plus it’s prime time to stock up on fall essentials (jeans, boots, coats). The sale is open only to cardholders until the 16th, but I would definitely recommend applying for a card if you don’t already have one. You can even be a peasant, like me, and get a Nordstrom debit card. Apply here. Anyway, here are my sale picks! It’s seriously all I can do not to snap up all of this stuff right now, but I think my bank account would audibly cry out in pain…whoops. Happy shopping!

Life Recap

Hellooooo! Sorry I’ve been such a flake these days! This past week has been a whirlwind and I’m just now catching up on life! A few days out on the town and your body starts to hate you, I swear. I spent the weekend in Chicago with my best friend, Gabby (aka the brilliant person who named this blog), and our boyfriends! It had been a year since I’d seen her, so it was a much needed reunion. We basically just sketched around town for a couple days and it was the best. On Saturday night, we took in game 7 and celebrated the Blackhawks’ win. Y’all probably could have guessed I’m not the sportiest gal but I got pretty fired up along with everyone else in the Windy City that night! I forget how close/easy of a trip Chicago is for us Madisonians, and I definitely want to spend a few more weekends there this summer. I surprised myself this weekend and didn’t shop too much, which I’m sure came as a relief to my poor bank account. I did, however, pick up this little number on the last day of the Nordstrom sale! I’d loved this BaubleBar gold tassel strand online, so when I saw it in person, I knew it was meant to be. It’s a really fun piece for summer and is a nice deviation from the typical single tassel necklaces we’ve been seeing. It’ll also be a great necklace for layering, if I feel so bold haha. Unfortunately, I can’t find it online (and on sale) at Nordstrom, but it’s still available on the BaubleBar website, so click the picture if you’re interested! It also has a sweet little matching bracelet which might need to be mine as well. I hope y’all are having a happy hump-day!

PS: The coffee table book pictured is one of my faves. It’s not only great for inspiration but also really helped me outline my style. Get it here.

My New Fave Animal Print

Hi y’all, happy Friday! I’m headed to Chicago later this afternoon to see my best friend from college and spend the weekend sketching around the Windy City! If y’all have any suggestions on places to eat/drink/shop let me know! For now, I’ll leave you with this little trend I’ve been into lately. I love most animal prints (except zebra, say no to zebra), but especially this speckled dalmatian/cheetah print. I’ve not been sure of what to call it, as it’s more abstract than straight-up cheetah, but not quite reminiscent of 101 Dalmatians either. Regardless, being a natural design, it’ll fit in with almost any look, plus, it’s a fun way to add some interest and texture to an outfit. What patterns and prints do you gravitate toward? I hope everyone has a great weekend, I’ll meet you back here on Monday! Until then, follow along on Instagram!
