fashion // fall spectacle.

do you remember when braces were cool? or was that just me? there was a point in my life [around 6th grade], all of my friends had braces. and gosh dang it, I wanted a pair. Luckily, I didn’t have to wish for them too long. at my very next dentist appointment, I was told I had a 30% overbite [which is nearly nothing & practically normal] but it was recommended I get braces. after one fancy colored rubber band change, I was over them. and two years later, threw a party the day the came off!

my point is, I occasionally suffer from “want what you can’t have” syndrome. a large shout out to warby parker for making swoon-worthy eyeglasses. and their fall collection launches today! [see the full collection here].

while I do not wish for my 20/20 vision to vanish, I cannot help but love how stylish they make corrective lens. thank goodness for their sunglasses. and having a fiance who is on board with me dressing up his face spectacles.

but let’s pretend for a minute.

 although I am sad to see the summer go so quickly, I cannot wait to dive into sweater + boot season.

happy wednesday.

life as of late.

oh, hello friday.

do you ever reach the weekend and think ‘oh crap, I have so much to do’?

I’d say .. that’s me.

but I tend to get distracted by lazy, chocolate chip pancake mornings.

do not forget you need to celebrate st. patty’s. maybe [J] can make our pancakes green? or I can make shepherd’s pie.. yum.

I just want to share a couple scenes from my week, c/o my telephone.

1 // my business casual shopping trip to kohl’s. and this bow blouse. [under $20].

2 // [J] + I started the car buying process last week. as in we, began to look. and immediately went for a beer afterwards. it’s not exactly my favorite weekend activity.

3 // our master bedroom is coming together. [we still have not hung anything on the walls yet. yikes].

4 // these ‘just mango slices’ from trader joe’s are my candy. they’re dried mangoes. and I ate the entire package in one day. on accident.

have the best day.

and an even better weekend :)

see you monday!

wear your heart on your sleeve.

if the sun is shining, go for a walk.
if the temperatures are under 60º, dress warm.

but still go for that walk.
