Here we are in September, and I have no idea where the summer months went. I remember the winter days were icy, freezing and treacherous, Spring brought blooming peonies… and now it’s Fall?! What?? Crazy. But I’m not complaining – new seasons bring new changes, and we’re ready for a change.
Also, can I just say something about this Oak + Fort kimono – it is the perfect summer to fall transition piece – its lightweight material and relaxed fit can be paired with any simple dress during the warmer days and then layered with sweaters and leggings when temps start dropping. Love it.

I had so much fun designing these cute prints for Ashley’s surprise lunch notecards. Succulents have been my inspiration this summer (who am I kidding, I love succulents anytime of the year) But anyway, as everyone’s heading back to school, I love the idea of sneaking in sweet little notes into lunch bags, backpacks, whatever it may be. Head over to sugar & cloth to download the printables – as well as check out Ashley’s awesome photo styling ;)
Well, my summer outfits are looking pretty much the same these days – tanks, tees, shorts, tshirt dresses, birks… To be honest, I start sweating the minute I step outside, so I avoid going out as much as possible. And if I must, I try to wear the least amount of clothes, but still looking put together and you know, covered up. This look right here is probably one of my favorite summer looks – casual, simple, effortless, and you can’t go wrong with classic black and white pieces.
I don’t know why it took me so long to get a bucket bag, but so glad I finally did. I’ve been eying these Baggu bags for awhile but could never decide between black or tan. And then I came across this cream one on Need Supply Co and you know there was no hesitation. I love everything about this bag – its simplicity, classic shape, neutral color, buttery soft leather… everything. So perfect.
Introducing an amazing collaboration between Parc Boutique and Solid Mfg. Co. I’m sure you all know my love and admiration for both these companies – Parc’s exquisite style and aesthetic, Solid Mfg. Co’s impeccably handcrafted leather goods. Put them together and of course you’ll get nothing but beautiful creations. I’ve shared a few pieces from Solid Mfg. Co. before – in my favorite black and nude tones, but this collection right here is in rich indigo, and they’re only available exclusively at Parc Boutique. Can we say gorgeous!?
I need to get active. I’ve become a sedentary bum and starting to feel pretty crappy – physically and mentally. We used to go on evening walks / jogs after dinner, which was my way of working out, unwinding, and clearing my head all in one. Now that I’m working, I literally come home, eat, shower and knock out. I’ve never wanted to let a 9 to 5 get to me, but here I am using it and making excuses. So, I started incorporating these 7 minute workouts into my evenings, and it’s made such a difference – trust me, a little goes a long way. And I’m going to start getting back into yoga soon – my body and mind will thank me for that. Even in all the busyness and exhaustion, remember to find time to take care of yourself.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! You may have seen this on my Instagram, and when I say I could live in this dress, I mean, I could really live in this dress. I was looking for something simple that I can lounge around in, but also something I can wear to brunch, shop, run errands, etc, and I’m so happy to say this is the one. It is simple, soft, can be dressed up or down, and the light, flowy material is so perfect for these hot summer days.
Unfortunately, this particular one is out of stock, but there is a similar, longer version oak + fort dress BB8.
| nude pink & white marbled necklace
you know I normally gravitate towards small, delicate accessories, but I would make an exception for this A Merry Mishap beauty – the nude pink + marble combo is both unique and gorg.
| zara wool coat
I know it’s 100 degrees outside, but I’m already mentally preparing for the cool Autumn days, and I foresee this exact coat making its way to my closet and becoming a staple piece.
