Happy Friday everyone! Do you have fun weekend plans? It looks like Pittsburgh is going to have some beautiful weather, and I can't wait to get outside and enjoy it. This weekend I'll be running the Color Me Rad 5k (so excited!), volunteering on Saturday night to help with hair and make-up for the Gilda's Club Fashion Show hosted by ModCloth, and visiting Mandy at her yard sale. Between all that, I would love to get some thrifting in, and maybe go on a hike (or even just a walk through Frick Park).
August has been a stressful month, between going to the doctor for myself and having to bring both cats to the vet (Zeb had to go yesterday- he's fine), I feel a little wound up and touchy. I'm looking forward to September's cooler days, and maybe getting out of town again. I don't have any fashion week plans, every year I tell myself to stay home, but now I'm starting to think it might be nice to just go to New York for a couple of days to get away (and go to Beacon's Closet). With my stress level so high, I've been relishing the early mornings lately, getting up at six when it's still a little grey outside, making coffee, and watching the fog burn off with a cat close by.
So, this weekend will be all about getting centered, getting caught up on sleep, and just generally getting back to myself. Every Friday I feel as if I come to you sounding like a frazzled, insane person, and well, that's not entirely untrue.
Here are a few things I'm enjoying from my sponsors, and from around the web this week:
This dress from Spotted Moth has the perfect transitional colors in it, wear it now alone, and later with tights.
The perfect studded jeans. Don't forget to enter the Lulu's giveaway!
Loving this decades-inspired lookbook from Ruche!
After yesterday's post, I'm a little bit obsessed with kimono-style jackets. Loving this one from Bluesville, USA. Receive 15% off with the code orchidgrey at checkout!
Love this crystal dagger pendant from InfinEight!
I would love to have this salt bird in my kitchen to make me laugh every morning.
Sorry friends with babies and those-who-are-easily-offended-and maybe-don't-like-cats-as-much-as-me: Unbaby.me sounds pretty awesome.
Animal jewelry. Are those corgi cufflinks on...lima beans?
Sleep jumpsuit. This would probably be the worst to sleep in, but awesome just to wear.
Mandy started a plus-size clothing line! I'm so excited for her, and knowing her personal-style, the designs will be amazing.
Do you want to feel truly uncomfortable? Watch this.
Embrace criticism and be happy, even if things aren't perfect.
I want this tiger sweater.
Happy (almost) weekend!
