It’s Friday and I couldn’t be happier! This week has really dragged for me. I have felt really tired, unmotivated and depleted, even though I’ve been working out everyday since Sunday. I don’t know if it’s a culmination of pandemic stress or the fact that I was not emotionally prepared for the last few episodes of season 11 of Grey’s Anatomy, but I’ve just felt off.
GLASS BOWL FOR FLOWERS
I got some questions about the glass bubble bowl I use for our floral arrangements. I believe I got it when I actually ordered flowers – but I found some on amazon here and here.
WHAT I’M REALLY WEARING
Let’s be real for a moment – I truly admire those who get dressed everyday despite being home all the time – I really do. But for me, it’s more convenient to wear athleisure because I can go right from my work day to my yoga mat with no interruptions to change. It seems like such a small thing, but it’s one less “obstacle” in my way of a daily workout. Also, legging are supremely comfortable and I’m always freezing so I wear sweatshirts and sweaters every single day – I just can’t deal with the AC. Here’s a breakdown of items I wear most/use daily
tie front bra | black crop bra top | Spanx workout bra
I wear sports bras every single day. I work out in leggings and a sports bra only, so it just makes sense. Plus, they’re comfortable and supportive.
pink leggings | colorful leggings | paint splatter leggings
I’ve been purchasing more leggings and these three caught my eye! Aren’t they so fun? I’m usually one for neutrals, but these colors are so pretty!
We got for family walks in the evenings and my trusty Karen Walkers are always with me. Other than my blue light blocking glasses I wear while I work, they’re pretty much my only accessory.
pink sleep romper
Honeydew Intimates is one of ray favorite sleep brands. I love their rompers – I always wear long sleeves and shorts to sleep. I have a few short/short sets, but I am usually cold, so I like to have sleeves when I sleep.
silk sleep mask
I can’t sleep without a sleep mask (really – I need total darkness and now that I’m used to it, I even bring it when I travel). My current one is on the fritz, so I’m ordering this one next. Love the pretty pink color.
no show socks
I like to keep my feet warm, so socks are an everyday must. Especially with our hardwood floors.
Sweatshirts are not something I typically buy a lot of given the climate in Houston, but working from home has made them my #1 staple to get through summers of being inside with AC all day. I love this beautiful lilac color.
madewell flower studs | flower stud | pastel floral studs | heart studs
It’s rare that I have a day where I don’t wear earrings. I favor studs and really love all of these floral styles. So whimsical for summer and a way to feel put together even while wearing athleisure.

Other items I love:
Long sleeved rashguard
I am so fair that I like to cover up on super sunny days when we use our pool on weekends. This print is amazing and the suit fits like a dream. Wearing a small.
Ruffle trim suit
This suit reminds me of it’s much pricier designer counterparts. The sleeves are such a fun touch – I’ve never not loved a ruffle. Wearing a small.
OUR WOVEN SHADES
I don’t think I’ve shared our upstairs shades on the blog yet! All of the information about our shades is saved here – just tap through until you get to the part about our shades! We got the exact same style and color as our downstairs, but we did blackout liners for all bedrooms. I love the look and you can really see the color of the shades more. We did no liner on our downstairs shades since we keep them up 99% of the time, but I do love the look with the blackout liner because you can really see the true color of the woven shade. I am so happy with the final look. You can get all of the info about our curtains here and here.
Have a great weekend!
