Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Mine was really, really nice. I have to tell you, I could not be enjoying this wellness challenge more.
Yesterday I went to yoga at 10am. When I got home, I felt a little bit sleepy so I got back into bed and read. What was supposed to be 30 minutes (I had grand plans of getting to Ludlow House to work/eat avocado toast/people watch), turned into three hours and finishing this heartwarming book. From there, I took a little nap and then a bath… (and then I worked, but that part is boring). I just felt very… cared for, like I was listening to my body and giving it what it needed. I gave it yoga, I gave it rest… and that felt really awesome. I have been getting to bed a lot earlier than usual (in bed by 10, 11pm at the very latest… this is someone who likes to stay up til 2am when I’m left to my own devices!) but the funny thing is I only get up a little bit earlier… so I have been getting SO much sleep… like nine or ten hours a night.
While we are talking about the wellness challenge, our first wellness check-in went amazingly – you guys are ON FIRE! I am going to choose 5 commenters today to send a treat to (I will email you!) but in the meantime don’t forget to pop over and check out this week’s challenge! I can’t wait to hear from you all again on Friday!!!
We took these photos at Kinfolk Coffee in Williamsburg. It’s quickly becoming a new fav for coffee and not just because of the plant wall. (Okay, the plant wall helps – I love my botanicals!) The coffee is really good, the staff is always friendly… it’s a nice little spot!
And this off the shoulder sweater is the greatest. It’s from Free People of course (I say of course because I tend to want every single sweater Free People makes – I’m also coveting this cozy looking cowl neck, this chunky v-neck (it looks like an Acne sweater I’ve been wanting, and the pale blue is so pretty), and this lace-up sweater (perfect with leggings!!).
Seriously though… If you are looking for the perfect cozy but still slightly sexy sweater (good for date night?) to wear this winter, this off the shoulder sweater is a good one… and it comes in so many colors – I feel that I need the blue and the rose! It’s too cold to show much skin this time of year but you can get away with a little sliver shoulder which is why I love this one.
