Weekend Recap + Weekend Wishlist

It was a fun and festive weekend for us. With the recent engagement of my little sister (who used to write this blog with me), we spent Saturday evening celebrating her and her fiancé. It was a much anticipated event, and it didn’t disappoint. From the delicious tacos, great libations, elaborate churro bar, and good company, it was an event to remember…. Which reminds me that we are entering that time of year…

A time filled with fun festivities and celebrations. Where family + friends gather together to celebrate the holidays. It’s one of my very favorite times of the year, and I eagerly look forward to all of it, especially now that we have Harper. I can’t wait to see her in her first halloween costume, have her help us carve her first pumpkin, and experience her first trick or treat (even if it is only to one door)! So, here’s to a week that is filled with much anticipation and excitement for the first holiday of the fall season! Have a great one friends!!

 I was looking for a little bit of inspiration in the kitchen, so I perused pinterest a little. We ended up making this delicious stew for dinner last night, and these amazing paleo pumpkin cookies for dessert. I am currently in the process of whipping up my favorite baked oatmeal batch for the week.

I was working on a future post, and came across some excellent, everyday options that I thought I would share with you. A few outerwear pieces that I have my eye on include this faux leather jacket in a gorgeous cream color (I really like cream tones for fall), this white puffer vest, and this camel colored wool coat. I also think this hooded cable knit wrap is perfect for layering. I also stumbled across these faux suede leggings (that come in three colors) and will be picking them up later this afternoon! I think this grey pair is gorgeous too, as they have a little more structure. I am also loving this striped cold shoulder tee, as well as this blush colored option (which comes in a few other colors as well). I think they are a great option that can be dressed up or down. These high-low tees are also a great option for everyday, or evening… I like this grey v-neck option, coffee colored scoop neck version, and this poncho shaped top. This v-neck tunic has the cutest front pockets, and this relaxed peplum long sleeve top is so feminine (love it in black + cream) with an excellent price point.

I was so bummed when these slides sold out immediately (because these simply aren’t in the budget)… but now that I have found them again, I’m not letting them go! These studded cutout booties are super cute too (and a cheaper version of this designer pair). And, these mauve colored sneakers are perfect for everyday life.

Thinking ahead to the holidays a little, I think this red ruffle top is gorgeous! I also think this velvet lace cami + this cream colored beaded blouse are stunning!


  1. Cutest way to ask a maid (of honor) for sure! The stew recipe looks like a winner (I’m all for maximum taste with minimal effort). Travelling (baby) question — did Harper have trouble sleeping during/after trips? I have a feeling our nomad lifestyle (though so much fun) has taken a toll on our little one who now won’t sleep without us. Ok me. Forgive me if I asked this before #mombrain

      Hi Marcia! Yes, Harper had some difficulty sleeping during/after our trips. It was mainly for the trips that had a time change. I read somewhere that it takes half the time of the trip for a baby to get acclimated back to their routine. So, when we were in Hawaii for 5 days, it took her about 3 to get readjusted. I can imagine your little man got used to being in the same room as you and loved it! Harper had difficulty sleeping because when she would wake up she would see us and think it was time to be up for good… whereas if we were at home, and she was in her own room, she would have just gone right back to sleep. I hope that helps momma!
