no sleep til brooklyn

Over the weekend, we took the opportunity to travel up to NYC (toddler-free) to visit with some good friends who are currently living in Chelsea and meet their new baby.  It was such a fantastic weekend, full of laughs, good food, and lots of really ridiculously cute baby cuddles with one of my favorite cities as the backdrop and with some of our favorite people.  We did a TON of walking, a TON of eating, and a healthy amount of shopping. I do love that city - it's energy is contagious and the weather this past weekend made me long for the Fall and a place there of our own.  Now if only my feet would recover.

Jumpsuits are all over the place these days.  I think that they are great additions to your wardrobe: chic, easy, and versatile.  I had been having an issue finding one that was in petite for my little legs, but thankfully Nordstrom came to the rescue.  Oh and they are also comfortable.  Jumsuits #FTW.

bright lights, big city

Over the weekend, we are headed up to NYC to visit with some friends and love on a new baby.  I'm ridiculously excited because it has been FAR too long since we have visited with these friends, and our old friend NYC.  I'd love to hear about some of your favorite places in the city and some places that we should definitely try while we are up there!

fringe kimono

So I have to be honest, I'm a little intimidated by kimonos. For petite individuals, they are usually a lot of fabric and I wasn't quite sure if they were my thing.  But when I snagged this gorgeous number from Shop Dress Up at the SBS Conference, I thought what the heck and I have to say, boy, was I wrong.  Yes there is a lot of fabric, but what it makes for is a light, breezy, boho chic alternative to my usual summer wear.  I also cannot wait to rock this at the beach during our trip in September!

Currently Trending: Sky Full of Stars

I have a personal affection for star prints, maybe it's my love of the book The Little Prince or maybe it has to do with my maiden name, but most likely it's because peanut is so darn cute when we sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  Regardless of the reason, I love that this print is popping up all over the place for the upcoming season.  It'll be a great print to bring into the holidays.

she's dressed in yellow, she says hello....

I mentioned on Friday that these sweaters were back at JCrew.  I'm not kidding, run do not walk, to grab them up before they are gone.  I loved the mustard as a color, which has not always been the case. Just add it to the list of colors that I'm slowly warming up to.  I'm can't wait to pair it with less obvious color choices like burgundy, teal, or grey.

Also, I've had this song stuck in my head since I wore a yellow dress on Friday so you're welcome for that.

Happy Friday + Link Love

Like many people this week, I've been spending a lot of the past week remembering how Robin Williams, a man who I never met or remotely knew, had touched my life in such an impactful way.  When I look back on my childhood, I grew up watching Robin Williams and those memories of laughter, tears, and life lessons are so woven throughout my childhood that perhaps that is why I find myself so saddened that such a light like Robin Williams is no longer shining in this world.  All of this is to say, depression is a very serious problem that has for far-too-long been stigmatized.  Depression does not discriminate, it takes prisoners, it does not fight fair, often times it hides behind the face of 'alright' and 'I'm OK', and it is something that we all need to take part in making those who are fighting this battle breath a little easier, walk a little light, make their place in the world feel less alone.  Because they are not - you are not.  If you or someone you love is battling depression, or even worse, considering suicide, please help them seek help or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800.273.8255)

As I am sure there's no real good segway into another topic and in an effort to move forward and into our weekend, I'll also be leaving you with a few of my favorite things around the interwebs this week.

- Preach Kelly, Preach!

- As if I didn't love JGL so much already!

-THIS sweater is back in a ton of colors,

- Kate Spade debuted their new swim line & it's everything you'd expect

- Men trying on Spanx - thanks for walking a mile in our er...undergarments!

- I'm starting to plan our family photos for the fall and am dying to try to find a way to incorporate this!

I hope you & yours have a lovely weekend!
