Lately 11/16/2017






Sweater (comes in 4 other colors)// Jeans

As you are reading this, I am in LONDON! This is still going to be your typical 'Lately' post, but just know it's not going to be as up to the moment as it usually is since I had to write it ahead of time!

Wearing: I have been wearing this oatmeal cabled sweater on repeat lately. It's SO soft, cozy and great for lazy days when I have no idea what to throw on. It comes in 4 other colors (including a gorgeous navy blue) and it's under $60! It runs true to size. I am wearing a size small for reference.


Wearing II: If you have been wondering what I am wearing in my Instagrams while traveling and you are not subscribed to Like to Know It, I have created a widget in the right sidebar labeled 'EUROPE' with many of the pieces. You can also go to the top of summerwindblog.com (aka this page) and click on 'Shop My Outfits'. There, you just click on the photo and the products pop right up! No need to sign up for anything or receive an e-mail. It's immediate! Scroll through the above widget to see some of the items I packed!

Eating: Another Trader Joe's Thanksgiving favorite: cauliflower rice 'stuffing'. You guys, it's SO good and has a great stuffing flavor but without the guilt! I like to add chicken for a complete meal. 

Drinking: As the holiday's approach (I can't believe Thanksgiving is just ONE week away), I wanted to link back to the champagne tasting post that I did this summer at the lake. Definitely, check it out if you also like to serve a little bubbly at your gatherings!

Reading: I love being in Pittsburgh and seeing what Uber is up to... If you are unfamiliar, Pittsburgh has Uber offices here and they have been testing self-driving cars here in Pittsburgh for a while. It's fun to spot one, knowing that no one is actually driving it! Crazy, right? Now it's cool to read that they're pairing up with Nasa for FLYING cars! Crazy!

Reading II: Have you guys seen the new addition to Tiffany's flagship store? It's called Blue Box Cafe and let me tell you- it looks incredible! I will definitely be adding this to my list next time I'm in Manhattan. 

Sale-ing: We have about one week away from all of the major sales that will be happening. Even though there are some good sales right now, if you can, hold off for the best sales of the year. I'll be sure to have a full guide to everything. 

Watching:
 I thought I'd share some of my favorite holiday movies with you: The Family Stone, The Holiday, Home Alone, Eloise at Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, and The Grinch (animated version). 

Listening: Tomorrow I'm sharing the ultimate Christmas playlist. Stay tuned!

Loving: I just got this lip color. I've mentioned it on Summer Wind before, and I finally found the color I had been looking for: babe. I think if you only own one lip color it should be this. It's the most perfect shade, it's hydrating, and you don't need a mirror to put it on. Plus, it stays on for a while. You can also control how dark you want it by applying a coat or more coats. Seriously my newest favorite lipstick.

Gifting: You guys, if you are stumped as to what to get someone for the holidays, this steamer is the best steamer I've ever used (even better than full-size steamers). It's great for any age and both men and women! It's under $70!
Wanting: Absolutely loving this equestrian-inspired belt. Belts are having a moment, I find this one to be even prettier than all of the logo'd belts! Scroll through the above widget to see more of my favorites!

Pittsburgh-ing: Tomorrow is light up night in Pittsburgh. I'm sad to be missing it, but it will be so fun to return to my favorite city and see it all dressed up for the holidays! 

Quoting: 'Every experience holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it.'// See more of my favorites, here

I cannot wait for the tiffany expansion and I love that Abercrombie has revamped their sweaters and do an overhaul; I have some great staples from them!

Have you ever been in one of the self driving Uber cars? You can randomly get matched with one there, right?

Yes- please provide the info for the steamer! I need a good one.
