Friday Finds || Week 38

Bows & Sequins working at the Waldorf Astoria with a Gigi New York monogrammed leather notebook.

What a week! This was my first ‘normal’ week since the end of July and it felt good to be back in a bit of a routine. Eating healthy, working out, sleeping well, settling into my morning groove, catching up on work, planning for the season ahead… Sounds pretty mundane, but it was a nice change of pace. And oh my gosh, THE WEATHER! I hate to be one of those people that always harps on the weather (both the good and the bad), but my mood is always so affected by it. I’ve been on cloud nine this week, you guys! We’ve been so, so lucky in Chicago… It truly feels like summer! (Honestly, it’s like 90 degrees.) The forecast is calling for 88 and sunny all weekend long so I guess I got my wish with one more pool weekend before the seasons shift for good. You know where to find me… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! xo JRS

Here are this week’s links…

PSA: Nordstrom Triple Points is happening now through Sunday!!ย (You don’t have to be a cardholder to take advantage of this, fyi. Perfect time to hit purchase on fall items that have been lingering in your cart!)

I’ve made my bed every day this week… #SlowClap I realize it’s only been five days in a row, but it really does set the tone for a more productive day! 5 Reasons You Should Make Your Bed Every Day

Thanks to Kelly, I fell in A-M-O-U-R with Parker Thatch this week! Monogram heaven, right this way…

Seriously… Can you even handle how good it is?! The custom options are ENDLESS!

In love with this tartan phone case for the fall! (Plus, it’s monogrammable!)

Obsessed with these delicate stacking rings! They’re available in both gold and silver and only $45 for a set of three.

These Friday, Saturday, Sunday rings are so cute, too!

Super into the animal ring trend lately… How fun is this jaguar statement ring?

Graphic tees, sweaters, and sweatshirts are another trend I’m feeling for fall… How funny is this sweater from H&M? #CurrentMood

A fun play on the Gucci sunglasses, but these are only $89. Usually round styles look awful on me, but I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of navy sunglasses (these come in four colors!) so I’m going or order them and give them a try! (And these are under $10 if you want to try the trend…)

Also loving the color combination of these Gucci glasses!

I’ve long been a fan of the Emily and Merritt collection at PB Teen and they just launched a more ‘grown up’ line for Pottery Barn! Some favorites below…

Honestly, though, the ‘teen’ collection still speaks to me a bit more… Love all of the gold accents, stripes, and blush pink Parisian-inspired styles.

I need some help from you… Looking for a chic magazine rack that coordinates with my living room! Any ideas?!

Banana Republic’s new arrivals are G-O-O-D!

Call me crazy, but I already ordered my 2018 Simplified Planner!

I’ve been on the hunt for fall booties this week… So far, I think this pair and this pair are the front runners for price and a walkable heel! A few more affordable finds below…

Dry Brushing 101 | I have a dry brush (two of them actually), but I need to be better about incorporating this into my routine regularly!

Taking notes from this post from Danielle about keeping your home tidy!

J.Crew new arrivals have me like 😍😍😍

This post was so sweet… Would you do anything different on your wedding day? (Mackenzie linked to this last week… Don’t worry, not perusing wedding things on my own accord. 😉)

Love all of these looks on Jess!

H&M is another one that has been pleasantly surprising me lately!

How friggen cute are these scalloped flats?

We all know I’m a sucker for anything in hunter green and I’m literally drooling over these strappy heels… So good!

These criss-cross mules have major Gucci vibes!
