Saturday Shopping 8/18/2018

This week was a bit of a doozy because I was sick in bed 3 out of the 5 days. Ick. But I've finally started feeling a lot better and I feel like a new person! Using this weekend to relax before a lot of travel this week!

I didn't get to browse too much since I was mostly in bed but there have been some really good fall pieces catching my eye and I can't help but be so excited for fall!

Cashmere Favorite

Shop the Look:

I wanted to share a new-to-me cashmere brand that I came across recently called, La Ligne  (also here). The stripes are what originally caught my eye and when I ordered one, I was blown away by the quality. The cashmere is so thick and soft and all of the seams are just so well constructed. 

It's kind of dangerous because there are so many different striped versions- right now I'm eyeing this one and this one. They're expensive, but the quality matches the price! 

I wore this on a cool morning this past weekend. The Strip District is so close to my apartment so I often walk there to grab meats and cheeses! I was so glad to have a few cool days. It started getting me excited for fall weather and alllll of the beautiful sweaters!

Lately 8/16/2018

I think the health Gods are up against me or something. I was sick last week with stomach issues and on Tuesday I woke up with the worst cold. My throat started to hurt Monday night and then Tuesday I was almost totally out of commission. What on earth! I almost never get sick so this is just wild to me! 

I have an extremely busy next week so this week has been spent at the computer trying to plan ahead. I am headed to Cincinnati and then a separate trip to Nashville next week. As I am planning ahead, all I can think about is FALL! 

I keep seeing the cutest stuff online and I am just itching for it to cool down! We actually had one of the best days weather-wise on Thursday of last week. I wore this pullover because it was cool in the shade!

This week I also booked a trip for September and another for November both of which I am so excited about! A group of us have even started talking about New Year's plans (any votes on where to?!).  

Wearing: Everybody's favorite pullover is back in stock! I have two colors and wear both so often. They are cozy and cute and the price is always great. Also, the black shorts I am wearing in the photos above are amazing. They're kind of like Nike tempo shorts on the bottom but the waistband is higher waisted and in a different material. The waistband sits super flat so the fit is just so insanely comfortable!

Reading: Last week my high school alma mater was ranked 15 out of over 10,000 high schools and now this week my college, James Madison University is ranked 39 out of 727 colleges. Not bad, not bad!

Eating: The weather was gorgeous on Saturday so we took Henry for a walk in Frick Park and then we headed to D's in Regent Square. They seriously have the best hotdogs! I can't decide if I like Franktuary or D's better- it's a toss-up!

Sale-ing: Tuckernuck's sale is still going strong with lots of items available! Can we also talk about their Maine editorial? It is drool-worthy from the outfits to the scenery. 

 I just finished The Staircase documentary on Netflix. The first half of episode one was a little confusing and the footage looks so dated that I couldn't get into it. But, as I kept watching I was totally into it! If you like crime/murder mysteries, this is totally for you. I still can't decide on whether or not I think he did it or not! 

Listening: This recommendation isn't going to be for everyone, but Mac Miller's new album is really good. I'm a huge Mac fan- I might be a bit biased because he is from Pittsburgh but his Blue Slide Park album is one of the best in music (I literally love every single song on the album). I didn't love his last album so I was really glad to love most of Swimming.
Loving: My cute little Hen! I have so many nicknames for him it's kind of ridiculous.

Wanting: I go through periods where I love Tory Burch and then don't find anything I particularly enjoy. Right now, I am loving TB! The new clothing and shoes out for early fall are gorgeous. They have a prim and proper, Jackie O vibe that I just love. I could see Jackie wearing this beautiful white dress and coat! Can we also discuss this wine-hued bag by Ferragamo? Every single season, they just knock it out of the park with their designs and this season is no different.

Traveling: Next up Cincinnati for a quick trip with Olay! I'm so excited. I have actually never been to Cincinnati. I have driven through many times so I am glad to get 24 hours there!

Magic Dog Hair Remover

Magic Dog Hair Remover

Henry sheds like a crazy dog! Mac did, too, so it shouldn't have come as a surprise! However, dog hair is hard to manage. It's especially hard for me because I have lots of light-colored linens, furniture, etc. and Henry has dark hair so the contrast is very noticeable. 

I'm very accepting of his shedding, I mean he's totally worth it! I vacuum several times a week to manage. In between vacuuming, though, I still have my neat-freak tendencies and make sure I use this magic little pet-hair remover. Best $10 ever spent. 

It's like a reusable lint roller. You just brush the wand over the fabric and it picks up the hair. I use it on my bed, pillows, couch, clothing, etc. It really does work. 

Do you have any many tricks for getting rid of dog hair around the house? I'd love to know!

Also, the pajamas I am wearing in today's post are the Lake Pajamas that I am always raving about! They are so well-made, the fabric is the softest and they are so comfortable. They're expensive, but to me, they are worth it.  

Whenever I talk about the Lake Pajamas, I'm always asked about sizing. They run big, so when you receive them in the mail, you'll pull them out and think they are huge. However, they are sized like this to account for shrinkage. During the first wash, there will be a bit of shrinkage (not much). I take my regular size small and they are just right- not too tight! I have tried the medium, too and there is honestly not too much difference. These are meant to fit loose as you can see in the photos above!
