Weekend Recap || Passing Time + Weekend Sales (Of Items I Own)

(Weekend workout + caffeine….)

I caught up with a few friends this past weekend, on the phone, and was reminded how quickly time passes…. babies, illnesses, moves, challenges with kiddos, job changes and promotions…. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday we were studying for college + grad school midterms, celebrating with long nights out, making questionable choices that we would never make today, and sharing our hopes and dreams for “when we’re older….”

As TJ and I sipped a little vino Saturday evening, on our date night, we chatted about how even though time has passed, we don’t necessarily feel older. I laughed about how the ages of 33 and 36 at one point sounded so old, and are now realities. We both seemed to agree that age is merely a number in your head… that you are what you make of you place in life…. but agreed that the past fifteen years have seemingly flown by….

Then, when we were sitting at dinner last night, I had this overwhelming feeling of wanting to slow life down a little. A feeling that it was moving too quickly…. like, how will I have a two year old in a mere two months?? How will I be 34? How is it almost Thanksgiving… and the year almost over?

And so, with that, I decided that while time does move quickly, welcoming the changes it brings, enjoying the moments we are given, and cherishing the memories of the past is the best way to proceed. This might sound like rambling, but it’s something that was in the forefront of my mind all weekend long…. So, as we head into the week ahead, I do so with the intention of remembering that life moves fast… (most) bad situations are fleeting, and that good ones should be cherished. Have a great week friends! xx

(These two tagged along with me to the mall…. but I think little miss ended up coming out ahead….)

(A little date night with TJ…. vino + Greek food…. velvet blazer)

(Who is this daughter of mine??! Adjusted to the time change and morning cuddles…. fuzzy shorts, Harper’s sleeper)

(Intentional matching. His + Mine)

(Weekend casual for a Sunday full of errands…. sweatpants, tank, cardigan, sneakers)

We made this pork pozole soup last night and it was seriously so good…. I’m also planning on having this soup again at some point this week.

Nordstrom is having their fall sale and I thought I’d share a few of the items that I personally own that are currently on sale…. This hooded down puffer jacket (that I got last year) is currently on sale and I plan on brining it to Park City this year…. this knitted free people cardigan (that I wore here) is also on sale under $80…. one of my favorite open knit sweaters (seen here) is on sale, as is this new favorite poncho (which comes in 3 colors, and I featured it here) and my most worn bodycon dress (you can wear it with booties/OTK boots + a cardigan to keep warm), and my oversized cardigan from last year (and featured above) in slate. A few workout favorites include this faux wrap pullover + mock neck pullover. This cozy hoodie + this split back pullover are two favorites as well, and both included in the sale.

Urban Outfitters also has my two favorite thermals on sale… this button-up option and this basic tee.

I’m having a moment with pearl embellishments and recently purchased this sweatshirt, and have my eye on these boyfriend jeans (on sale!). I’m also loving this embellished cardigan and these skinny jeans.

I also recently purchased this fuzzy cardigan (love the color) and love this bell sleeve sweater.

I’m looking for a new cami and have my eye on this gorgeous lace silk one, tiered velvet option in wine, and this ruffled wine one (such a great price!).

Annnnnd, a few cozy weekend pieces that I’m looking at include this lace up sweatshirt + jogger duo, cozy open cardigan, and shearling slippers.

I also snagged a few items for Harper at the Old Navy sale this weekend including this buffalo check dress, distressed jeggings, peplum top, and this adorable bell sleeve henley. Oh, and she picked out this puffer vest (as in , wouldn’t take it off… wore it home).
