Happy Friday, friends! I’m so happy to report that it’s been such a good week here in Bogotá. Nothing that eventful, which ha been a very welcomed change. I joined a spin studio here (less than $100 for one month unlimited 🙌🏼) and have gone the last six days in a row, Sunday through today (Friday), and it’s felt so good to get back into a workout routine that reminds me of home. I absolutely love my apartment location this month! We live right by Parque El Virrey and the area kind of reminds me of a mini Upper East Side or something… Everything I need is a 5 minute walk away, it’s amazing. And I got #blessed with the master bedroom and bathroom in this apartment (I had the smallest bedroom the last two months) so that’s be amazing, too. It’s been a much, much needed fresh start and I’m finally feeling like myself again after a rough few weeks.
We’re playing Tejo tonight, going rafting ~3 hours away tomorrow, and I’m going to a concert on Saturday night so it should make for a fun weekend! Hope yours is, too. xoxo JRS
Here are this week’s finds…
OMG — this new MZ Wallace print! I’m obsessed.
I did a webinar with a few other people on Remote Year about building a personal brand on Instagram… You can watch it here! (And you can find the rest of the ‘Knowledge Drops’ here!)
J.Crew has so, so many cute leopard pieces right now. And everything is on sale, too! I absolutely love this dress for holiday parties. I really wish I had this beach shirt for my trip to Cartagena that’s coming up! I’ve mentioned this before, but I am drooling over these leopard nordic boots. This bow headband is super cute. This tee is a fun take on a black and white print. Absolutely obsessed with this jacket! Also loving this burnout velvet leopard print. A leopard print pleated skirt is a must for the season! And last, but not least, this printed shirt makes me so nostalgic, as I had the same one back in 2011! (Seriously, I’ve styled it on the blog 100 different ways back in the day.)
A really great read… I Am Not Responsible For How Others See Me
I almost fell over when I saw this collab on the Gucci website! So unexpected. But if you’re a Yankees, Angels, or Pirates fan… You might want to add one of these pieces to your wish list. (There’s mens, too!)
I’m such a sucker for face oils, but I have only tried one of these! So many to add to my list.
This new SoulCycle collab has me excited for so many reasons!
This belt is such a staple!
Another great read on phone addiction!
How freaking cute are these bow-tied ribbon mules?!
I can’t tell if these slides are so ugly that they’re cute, but I actually really like them, haha. Same with these fuzzy sneakers!
I’m on such a Vans kick… I want every pair! (First thing I’m buying when I’m back stateside!) Effing obsessed with this gold pair.
You’ve probably heard me rave on and on about my UltraBoosts by now. I love this green and pink pair!
One thing I miss right now is just getting to be able to pick out OPI colors for my nails. (Our nail salon in Lima had a decent selection of OPI colors, but I couldn’t find any familiar brands in Medellin. TBD about Bogota!) OPI’s fall Peru collection came out at the perfect time, when I was spending a month in Peru. (I love all of the names!) I really want to try Como Se Llama.
I seriously want a posture brace. My posture used to be so good when I was growing up (from horseback riding lesson), but every time I catch a glimpse of myself, I’m slouching.
How cute is this pink puffer? This one (made from recycled water bottles!) is cute, too.
Loving this leopard print skirt! (So much leopard, so little time.)
Mackenzie looks so dang cute in this classic fall outfit!
