Wearing II: This bralette has to be the best I've ever worn (under $20!). It's beyond comfortable, so flattering, and actually offers a decent amount of support. I bought all three colors after I had ordered one because I loved it that much. It runs small, so size up at least one size. I got a size medium!
Reading: Did you hear? J.Crew is coming to Nordstrom. This article from Bloomberg is an interesting read, especially for those who like to follow brand strategies. It's no surprise to me, considering Nordstrom has been carrying Madewell for a while now. I don't typically shop at Madewell.com, I almost always shop through Nordstrom's website, so to me, this is a welcome change!
Wanting: I would love this pullover! Since moving downtown, I do a ton of walking. I really love waking up in the mornings and throwing on something super casual and heading into the Strip for breakfast or a coffee. It's great exercise, refreshing, and a fun way to get my day started. I then go back and change, but this piece seems like the perfect addition to my closet for crisp mornings! I am also obsessing over this longer grey cardigan. I need another sweater like this like I need a hole in the head, but it just looks so cozy and effortlessly chic!
Watching: I saw someone post the trailer for Mr. Church on Facebook and instantly fell in love. It looks like a gorgeous film and a heartwarming story. It comes out soon!
Watching II: Ok, I got caught up with this algebra equation. It's going viral all over social media, so I sat down and tried to figure it out. I finally gave up after I realized I got the wrong answer twice. But then when you watch the video, it's really way simpler than it looks and I, apparently, was not paying attention to the number of boots and horseshoes (whoops). This entire paragraph will make no sense to you unless you watch the video/try to solve the problem!
Loving: I caved and ordered the Gucci mules that are super trendy right now. I'm typically not one to go for major trends, but I really couldn't resist these. I think they'll be my go-to flats for the fall season. Not to mention, a loafer/mule is really a classic, they're just having their moment right now. So I am sure I will personally wear these for years and years to come! I'm a little bummed because they're hard to get a hold of. I ordered mine straight from Gucci but they're back ordered until October. On Nordstrom, they're even back ordered until December. Yikes... but just in time for Christmas, I guess! Since the Guccis are a major splurge, I found a similar pair that is under $100. It' a great option if you want to wear the look without breaking the bank! It's also a great idea if you're hesitant to buy the Gucci shoes because you're unsure you'll get enough wear. Add these to your closet and see how much you are reaching for them in a few weeks time, then you'll know if it's smart to go for the splurge!
Listening: I've been working on September's playlist for a little while now, so I'm embedding it here this week for those who don't have Spotify! Besides all of the 'new' songs on September's playlist, I've (oddly) been listening to Rosanna by Toto on repeat, a lot of The Police and Into the Mystic by Van Morrison on repeat.
Quoting: 'I realized I was thinking of you and I began to wonder how long you'd been on my mind. Then it occurred to me: Since I've met you, you've never left.'// See more of my favorites here.
