Happy friggen Friday! This is a long one, you guys… It’s been about a month since I’ve done a Friday Finds post so there’s a whole lot to share! Some EPIC podcasts to listen to… Clothes to wear now… Shoes to wear later… And some great reads, too! Enjoy. xoxo
Shop To It!
A few things I personally bought this week… This phone case for my new phone (my phone got stolen two weeks ago), these $14 sunglasses (in brown tort), and this $40 handbag. // I really wanted this tortoise case, but I was in a bind and needed one that day so settled on the rattan.
Gimme gimme this dress! We’ve still got a few weeks of summer, my friends. Let’s pump the brakes on all of this fall talk, okay?!
I’m also loving this dress! It’s white, but the long sleeves make it easy to transition over the next few months. (I mean, if we *must* talk about fall…) All about that wear now, wear later element! It would be so cute with sneakers and sandals now, and booties, OTK boots, or even slouchy boots this fall.
I want this custom phone case SO BAD!
I also reallllyyyyyyyyyyyy want these red workout leggings.
How friggen cute are these leopard sneaks?
I love these strappy sandals! Great for wearing now and also transitioning into fall over the next few months.
UM HELLO SKIRT OF MY DREAMS. I need this fun, striped number in my closet! I love it paired with sneakers.
These leather sandals are on my wish list! I have a pair of their ballet flats and they are such great quality.
Pure torture is being on very restricted shopping budget and finding the boots you’ve been lusting over the past two years on sale in your size only.
For my New York ladies — Boll & Branch is having a sample sale next weekend! I literally want to fly in. You can read about how much I love their bedding here!
I’ve seen so many rave reviews about this ice roller… I need to finally order it! (PS: Isn’t it funny how sometimes we drag our feet on a $12 purchase, but have no problem shelling out for other stuff? I find my own shopping behaviors so bizarre sometimes.)
Things to Read
I’m so admire Kelly for sharing her battle with depression! It’s something that so many of us deal with behind closed doors and while it’s not easy to talk about, it’s a conversation that needs to be had more often.
I loved this post from Mary and Laura. I’ve got a laundry list of sites to check out! — The Best Professional Resources for Women, By Women
Making a Case for Being Less Busy — Yes, yes, and yes.
I hate the word “diet,” but this is a great post about figuring out what your body needs!
I absolutely love Grace in this dress… Gorg!
This post takes me back! I had dinner at Galley Beach on Nantucket last summer on my birthday.
Carly looks so cute in this outfit!
Watch & Listen
THIS PODCAST EPISODE, OMG. Please, please give it a listen when you have a chance! “Your mess can be your message” was one of the quotes I tried to scribble down while driving and listening, haha. There were so many things she touched on that resonated with me on some level… family past, addiction, her own personal narrative, dating patterns based on fears, primary and secondary soulmates, relationship to failure and rejection, and more. It’s one of those episodes that I’ll definitely be listening to more than once to soak it all in. I ordered her book, Choose Wonder Over Worry, immediately upon listening to the podcast!
My friend, Kate, has been reading her old journals on Patreon and it’s been SO FASCINATING to listen to!! I’ve been driving back and forth between Chicago and my hometown a lot these last few weeks and nothing makes the time go by faster than listening to Kate. (You can check out her regular podcast here!)
On a lighter note, I was laughing out loud listening to Jared Fried on the Girls Gotta Eat podcast!
