Can you believe it's August 23rd already? It blows my mind how quickly this summer has flown by, though I'm not complaining about the cooler mornings and evenings we've been treated to the past few days. Right now, I'm listening to the Grateful Dead (Box of Rain - listen to it and I dare you to not get emotional), while it drizzles outside (which is especially awesome because it means there are no children playing in the park across the street screaming bloody murder...I'm officially a crone), and a stick of campfire incense burns. It smells campy in here and it's the best.

Today we're heading out to Terrain to their Heirloom Tomato Festival. I'm excited to take some pictures for work, and also to pick up these string lights for the bedroom (they're so, so pretty). I'm feeling more centered than I was the other day, and excited for the weekend ahead. What are you up to?

Here's what caught my eye this week:

// The perfect Vintage 70's blouse for fall from JessAmity
// Classic tortoiseshell sunglasses
// Lapis hoop drop earrings from Black Crystals - save 15% off w/code "ORCHIDGREY"
// So smitten with this vintage D&B purse from Wolf Mama Vintage - save 15% off w/code "ORCHIDGREY"
// Love the button-front of these jeans
// Three soft-focus lens effects you can make ON the camera
// This made me laugh
// Really digging these minimalist black slip-ons for fall, also these lace-up Docs would look so cute with a mini and an oversized sweater (like this one)
// Really digging Ashley Monroe's Dolly-style country, especially this song (the video is also pretty kitschy and genius as well)
// Homemade Nutella? Yes please!
// This cute girl makes me miss my long hair so bad!
// I am absolutely making this this weekend
// Dream home.
// These are most definitely on my fall wishlist
// I, too, am not afraid to admit that I am obsessed with Taylor Swift's new song and video.

Seriously though, how is it almost September?! This whole year is whizzing by... it's freaking me out!! Time, slow down please!! Love the Taylor Swift video (she's adorable!!) and I'm all over a good pair of bell bottom jeans. My favourite!! <3 Plus, rain, incense, Grateful Dead?! Why do you not live closer... I'd be right over with a bottle of wine! ;)

I'm exactly the same about the screaming children outside! Lol. I always say that I'm like a crabby old lady ;). Have a great weekend! It sounds like it's off to a lovely start.

Pretty much nothing sounds more adorable than an Heirloom Tomato Festival. I want to go to there.
