Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 6 & 7

Happy Weekend, friends! I haven’t been online much over the last few weeks and it’s been pretty glorious. Hallie and I have been making our way through Australia and have been cramming so much into each day… sightseeing, creating content, and setting aside some time to unplug and enjoy ourselves, too. We’re about 2.5 weeks in and so far we haven’t made it out past midnight… There have been quite a few nights where we’ve been lights out by 9:30. 👵🏻 I just haven’t had the energy to open my computer and crank out some work once I crawl into the sheets. So with that being said, this week’s links are kind of light! Hopefully you, too, can spend less time online and enjoy your weekend. xoxo JRS

For my Chicago gals… If you’re looking for something fun to do on a Friday night, this Yoga in the Sky event at Willis Tower on 2/26 looks pretty awesome!

I’ve been *living in* these cropped wide leg pants on cooler nights in Australia… I absolutely love them and just ordered a second pair (knowing how messy I am). They’re surprisingly very flattering and are such a great price, too!

Hallie bought this hat at a little shop in Melbourne. I really want to order this one in black… It’s the perfect size and shape!

While I was browsing other Aussie designers, I found this neutral hat that I’m also obsessed with.

This double pom beanie is on sale!!

How cute is this tiered gingham dress?! Need.

My striped swim suit is currently 40% off! (Here are the matching bottoms, also on sale.)

Omg… These J.Crew new arrivals… 😍 I must order this bag once I get back!

One of my girlfriends in Australia had these sunglasses and I actually *love* them on! I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of this style of sunglasses, but they always look so, so terrible on me. Ordered these immediately after trying hers on!

Speaking of another Australia favorite, THIS IS THE BEST SUNSCREEN EVER! You guys, truly, I’ve never felt anything like it. My two Aussie girlfriends (and one of their boyfriends!) loved it just as much as Hallie and I have. I need to order a few more tubes ASAP! It’s perfect for wearing under your clothes  because it’s not smelly or greasy AT ALL. Trust me, buy this immeds. (It says it’s for your face, but we’ve all been wearing it all over our whole bodies.)

This hair product has been a must for the humidity! I actually chose not to pack mine (#mistake) and then found an Aveda salon in Melbourne and bought a new bottle.

Another beauty favorite… Hallie had me try this face mask a few times and I love it! Super moisturizing and the smell is to die for.

    That tiered dress is just the cutest, I can definitely see myself in that this summer! I’m going to try and get offline this weekend and get out and visit some new places – thanks for the inspiration. Time to unplug!

    We howled with laughter as we were taken back to our own childhoods in the Aussie beach suburbs.
