Checked Out

I can’t believe that it’s September 11th. 16 years after 9/11 and I still remember being in my dorm room, lazily waking up and watching the second plane hit the towers. I remember watching the buildings smoke, not quite understanding how a plane could be suspended up that high after flying into a building and then with horror as the buildings fell to the ground.

But today I choose not to be maudlin. There’s nothing like an upcoming trip to tickle your senses and take over all of your focus. Our upcoming trip to Scotland, yes again, and our voyage out to Orkney is what I want to think about right now. I already have my suitcase packed mentally and am looking to add in a few pieces for some mucking about in the highlands. These lace distressed jeans are a definite must!

If you’ve ever done a driving tour of northern Scotland, please send your recommendations. We’ve already done a ton, but a good scenic view, or a particularly yummy dinner is never wasted on us.

Summer Reading Part II

Full disclosure, unlike my previous post, this one contains less of my favorites and more of the books I struggled through this summer.


Summer Reading Part I

It may be the end of summer {no!!!!}, but there’s still some good reading days ahead.


Jumpin’ Jumpin’

Do you ever see something on someone on the street and instantly like it and then go hunt for it? That’s what happened with this jumpsuit! I saw it on a woman at the grocery store one weekend and then during one of my evening browsing sessions of ShopBop I found it!! Of course it’s a brand I’ve never heard of, but it’s super on sale right now, crazy comfortable, and the straps unknot so you can adjust bodice length as necessary {key for us petite girls}.


Soft as Suede

Hello September! Can you believe that the summer has just flown by?! It feels like just yesterday we were in Scotland at the beginning of May and now it’s September and we’re going back at the end of the month.


Show Me the Love

Guys, it’s been ages! I can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by. Before you know it, I’ll be donning my favorite leather pieces and putting away these lighter layers. sundry top // coach bag
