Lately 3/22/2018

Jeans (old)// White Sneakers (such a classic, under $100)
Wow did this week fly by! I actually cannot believe it is Thursday already. I'm excited for the weekend, but still have a lot of work to do before I get there.

On Tuesday evening, I spoke at Duquesne University students about SEO (search engine optimization) and it was a lot of fun. I always psych myself out before I speak in front of a group, but once I'm doing it, I remember how much I really enjoy it!

Wednesday I got together with one of my BFF's, Aly. She has been away for a while and it was so nice to catch up with her!

Tonight, if I can make time, I am going to head to Homegoods to see if I can pick up some more 'cheap' toys for Henry to destroy. I've felt a bit guilty/bad for him. He's been cooped up inside a bit more than usual this week becuase of the snow and I can't wait for him to experience warmer weather here and take long walks with me!
Wearing: While in Charleston, Vineyard Vines invited me in to check out their King Street shop! It's a beautiful store with a great location. I was excited to see all of the beautiful pieces in person. I picked up this navy bomber jacket and I am OBSESSED. It's probably not something I would have chosen from just seeing it online, but after trying it on in person, I knew I had to have it! VV has sooo many great pieces out right now, I want them all! Scroll through the widget above to see some of my favorites!

Reading: This was such an interesting article about healthy eating. It's SO hard to navigate eating and nourishing yourself in 2018 because of all of the fad diets and food trends out there. This article is really long, but easy to digest in Q+A style form with a doctor. It's so eye opening. But basically, the overall vibe of the article is to eat less meat and more of a plant-based diet. I kind of knew that already, but I do love my meat! Here's to me preparing more vegetarian meals!

Watching: The trailer for the Mr. Roger's movie, 'Won't You Be My Neighbor' has been released! I absolutely cannot wait to see this documentary. I am such a fan of everything Fred Rogers. He is a truly inspiring man and a Pittsburgh icon. I watched Mr. Roger's growing up as a child, and was fortunate enough to be able to see some of the set up close and personal here in Pittsburgh. My Pappap (my mom's dad) was a musician and he actually used to play with Joe Negri (Handyman Negri!). There's also a biopic with Tom Hanks coming out and I can't wait for that, too! 

Loving: Lilly Pulitzer and Pottery Barn collaborated on a line of housewares and it's realllllly making me wish I owned a beach home somwhere warm and tropical! They do have some understated pieces, though, like this sham and this adorable little gold seat turtle box! I also need to find a place to put this mirror, stat, because it is absolutely gorgeous!

Loving II: Are these not the cutest sandals ever?! I got them about a week ago but haven't had a chance to wear them since it's been ridiculous here in Pittsburgh (read: snowy and frigid). 

Wanting: Scroll through to see some of my favorites from this week. I have a lot!

Quoting: 'Mindset is what separates the best from the rest.' // See more of my favorites, here.
