Happy Friday + Link Love



Hey folks! It's Friday (already and thank-you-baby-Jesus) and that means you get your daily dose of what I'm loving around the interwebs today.  I hope you & yours have a fantastic long weekend and I'll catch you on Tuesday when we return to our regularly scheduled postings.

Pleated Leather + Sparkle

With temperatures dropping, I am chomping at the bit to break out the leather. Over this week, I took a little liberties since this skirt was burning a hole in my closet.  It really is a great piece that I can't wait to pair with black tights & booties when the temperatures drop even more.

And, of course, our little peanut had to get in on the action.  Seriously, he's just too much sometimes.

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.
