The Weekender: 6 September


It feels so strange to type September up there in the title. That means my favorite season, fall, is just round the corner!!! I feel like I talk a lot about the weather on here…probably just out of awkwardness. I’m just excited for it not to be 100+ degrees on my mile long walks to class. (Hopefully people just stop going to class soon and I can park closer, ha) And well, my mostly black wardrobe will be less of a chore. I’m a little nervous for tomorrow’s football games. It’s a bit of a nervous excitement. What used to be just me screaming at my team is now just going to be me screaming at players on my fantasy roster and obsessing over halftime stats. I don’t want to jinx anything…


Noteworthy 003


Music: I won’t lie, I’ve been listening to two things lately: 90s alternative radio on Pandora and Amnesia by 5 Seconds of Summer. There’s just something about Amnesia that makes me think of summer. Granted it’s clearly about unrequited love but I just can’t put my finger on why it makes me feel that way. Besides, the video makes me want to loiter outside gas stations.

Phone Cases: I realize throwing my phone into my car cup holder probably isn’t the wisest decision, but it happens far too often. My last case broke so I’m in the market for a new one. These are two of my favorite contenders unless I decide to go ahead and print my own design. ONE: Bobbies // TWO: WWA Tour

Dinner Tonight: It’s a bit stormy today and I would love to have soup. Sadly, it’s a summer storm so not chilly at all. Next best thing? A sandwich. This pastrami baguette looks absolutely delicious, doesn’t it?

Style Inspiration: All black is a pretty tough look to pull off round these parts, but I can’t wait till fall to try it. It’s simple and actually makes wearing 90% of my wardrobe easier, ha. See the way I would wear it below.

Coffee Talk: (SPOILERS) I love coffee. What? Shocking. That’s why I was so excited to find out Blueprint now makes a coffee drink! Blueprint makes amazing juices. The lemon is my favorite, but I can’t wait to try this. I never thought I needed a floating coffee mug but after seeing this I want one. The design is great. There’s no need for a coaster (which I rarely use anyway) so it saves precious pieces of furniture. And it effortlessly hold the weight of a half a gallon of water. Need I say more?

Sugar Rush: I think I found my new favorite fall food: Pumpkin S’more Doughnut Muffins. Yes, 3 different foods all in one and probably loads and loads of sugar. I was genuinely shocked when I saw the recipe for these, but I can’t wait to try them. Recipe: Pumpkin S’more Doughnut Muffins

Jump Into My Closet: A new day, two new items I want in my closet. This time it’s the H&M New York pullover and this Mango zip tote which is sold out.


Shop the look: Topshop Washed tee / Mango Quilted Bomber jacket / H&M Skinny High jeans / Mango Zip tote bag / ASOS Odobo cuff bracelet / ASOS Little Rock Pointed ballet flats

The Weekender: 2 August


This is the part where I’m supposed to write about some personal stuff, right? So, I was caught in the middle of a rainstorm last night and my favorite shoes are now ruined. See, when they say it’s going to storm (20% chance) I never believe it and that is why my favorite studded flats are a sopping wet mess on my porch. That’s what I get for trying to dress nicely for a birthday dinner, isn’t it? Psh! I think I might just adopt a new policy of carrying another pair of shoes in my bag or in my car. I think you can probably tell this is not the first time this has happened to me.

But on to the real reason for this post…the most fascinating things of the week!
