Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 30

Happy, happy Friday! It’s been an interesting week over here… My mom visited on Sunday and Monday (celebrating her birthday!) and then I somehow wound up with plans every single night this week, which was super fun, but I’m feeling all sorts of tired by today. And on the other side of things, my site was down for a few days this week, my emails were somehow messed up, too, and it felt like my creativity and motivation went on a little summer vacay this week. To be honest, I feel like I need a summer vacation myself, and I’m getting all of the anticipatory anxiety of how crazy the next four weeks are going to be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s going to be a lot of fun with so many friends coming in town and some exciting work trips on the calendar, but I’m already feeling a wee bit burnt out, which is typically not a good place to be in when you’re heading into one of the busiest months of the year. Ahh! Deep breaths, Jess.

Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

Here are this week’s finds…

If you don’t have a slip skirt yet, this one is only $78 and comes in three gorgeous colors! Trust me when I say it’s the most versatile piece to wear now and throughout the fall. I’m also LOVING this leopard printed one! The colors are so unexpected.

I’m obsessed with these beaded leopard slides. I thought they had sold out everywhere, but I just found them in stock on this site!

And for a fall version of a leopard slide, I couldn’t order these slip-ons fast enough. Truly love at first sight, they’re perfect.

This white eyelet dress is such a perfect piece to throw on when it’s sweltering hot, but you still have to look put together! It reminds me of this dress I used to have, doesn’t it?!

This dress is another fun white eyelet style with more of a shape!

I’m loving all of the fun sunglasses chains I’ve been seeing! Maybe I won’t lose three pairs of sunglasses at Lollapalooza this year… 😂

In love with these leopard workout leggings… Couldn’t order them fast enough.

Oh. Em. Gee. How fun are these personalized hair clips?! And this one, too!

And for some reads…

I loved Meghan’s post about managing her anxiety. Lots of great tips that I use, as well.

A very interesting look into the world of blogging and “influencers.”

So excited for Mackenzie and Will finally finding a house!

HBO is making a documentary on Ralph Lauren and I can’t wait to watch this fall!

    Lots of fab finds! That leopard skirt has my name on it. Keeping my fingers crossed they still have in my size!! I hope this weekend is relaxing for you. Feeling burnt out is no fun at all. It gets the best of us but definitely not impossible to work through. You got this Jess! Happy Friday!

    A healthy 20 year old has only a 20% chance of conceiving each time she has intercourse. So a 15% chance with IVF is actually very good. IUI is cheaper and has a success rate of 8-12%.
