Happy Monday!!! Hope you had a good weekend. This was a dressier week of outfits as I had a lot of events and parties for work and such. Out of everything I saw during fashion week I think the Veronica Beard presentation was my favorite. Everything they do is just. so. good. Pretty pastels and (per ush) such good jackets. Vogue called it “Barbie Gone Bad” and I love that!
I was really happy to have a quiet and very low key weekend. Especially after a week that was jam packed and a little hectic, I read two books. I started with The Testaments (Margaret Atwood’s sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale) which I LOVED – it was incredible and I tore through it, and then moved on to what may have been the scariest book I’ve ever read: American Predator! This was the story (all true!) of serial killer Israel Keyes. You won’t be able to put it down (and you won’t ever want to leave home again). Highly recommend both books (though I wouldn’t call either light or fun, which is what I need next… tell me your fav rom-com books in the comments!!!

aw thank you so much Jess!!!
Ooooo I love the headband! Just ordered some–they are perfect for fall!
Arent’ they great? I want to get more but nobody needs 6 velvet headbands!
Do the bauble bar earrings turn over time? I’m looking for a pair of gold hoop earrings that won’t turn over/fade color over time? I know this may require real gold. Any recommendations?
Hey Carlee, Mine haven’t! I’ve had this pair for over a year. (I double checked and I bought them in Feb 2018!) xo
Oh I love everything!

Love these! Don’t you get seriously freaked out reading books like that? It affects my daily life too much to read stuff like they!
Hahahahah no – I love them! I am weird though!
hi!! so, books-wise, I loved two books I read a couple years back by Books Are Magic owner, Emma Straub: The Vacationers and Modern Lovers. Super easy to read, fun, not necessarily overly romantic but very entertaining.
I love Emma Straub! Thanks for the suggestions!
Hi! I always love your taste. Will you do a date night tops roundup again soon? I know I’ve asked you before and you came up with some great suggestions. I’m ready for another round—seems like I always need more cute tops to wear with jeans!
I will try! Thanks for the suggestion! xo
You looked SO incredible in the green VB suit!
thank you so much!
I especially love the red dress with the red faux fur! You look so glamorous!
Thank you so much!
