What I Actually Wore: 10.12 – 10.18

What I Actually Wore: 10.12 - 10.18

happy Monday! I had the best weekend. It was incredibly TV heavy which I felt a bit guilty about but whatever, it was GREAT. I was pretty tired when I got home from Philly on Friday afternoon so I laid really low. I finished watching Succession and it was SO GOOD. On Saturday I decided to try Orange Theory and absolutely loved it. I ended up getting a membership! I’m so excited to have found it, they have locations everywhere (I’ve booked a class in Atlanta which is SO great) and I really enjoyed it – the workout reminded me a lot of the workouts I would do when I had a personal trainer.

After that I got ready and went down to the Candy Shop Vintage popup (yesterday was the last day) to host a reader meet-up (it was really fun getting to meet some of you!) and headed home to (you guessed it – MORE TV). I watched the entire season of Modern Love and LOVED IT. I don’t remember the last time a show got me to cry that much (maybe This is Us?) It was really good and definitely pulls at the heartstrings. I can’t recommend it enough!

As for yesterday, I slept in, did some work, read a bunch (currently reading this book but only medium on it), recorded with Becca, got a massage, and went to bed early. My perfect weekend!

What I wore: Anine Bing Blazer (from last year; this is similar!) // Monogram T-Shirt (the best – it says “no photos”) // Re/Done Jeans (from 2 years ago) // BaubleBar Hoops (bought these so long ago and they have not tarnished!) // Margaux heels (fav, so comfy!) // Out of Print tote
