Odds and Ends


1. Do you end your texts with periods? Well, I guess you’re totally off-putting then. (I totally do!)

2. Do your friends really like you? Eye-opening read.

3. Sexism while reporting the Olympics. Shocker. This made me laugh so hard. Congrats, girl!

4. The body keeps score. Oh yes, the body keeps score.

5. Olympic divers or porn stars? You decide. (You do know there is a diver named Steele Johnson. Heh.)


7. Ooh, finding your purpose by Hunter S. Thompson. I like it.

8. Simone Biles is perfection. Love these.

9. Oh man, I think it’s time for another Moms Escape. This is a great offer.

10. Plogging? I get it, but plogging? Come on now.

11. Oh lordy, here we go with the fall boots. *averting eyes*

30 Days of Dresses-Week 1

I’m wearing a dress every day this month because it’s hotter than Hades outside. I’ll be posting to my Instagram account daily, so please join me! #30daysofdresses


Loved this one from J. Crew, although it’s not available any longer. This one, however, is similar!


Another Madewell classic from my capsule last year, but here are a few options.


Everyone should have a red dress in their closet.


Psst…this dress is only 72 dollars. Feels so much more expensive on.


Oh yes, and skirts with tops count as dresses in this challenge. Top. Similar Skirt.


This dress by Joie is on sale right now at Shopbop. Woohoo! (Hurry, though. One left!)


Finally, a tunic for the pool counts, right?

See you next week!


Odds and Ends


1. Emotions we all feel, but don’t know the name of. Monachopsis is a common one for me.

2. Who said it – Donald Trump or Jenna Maroney? Classic.

3. Hey moms, did you go on a vacation this summer? Did it feel just like home, except closer to a beach? Ha.

4. Just in case you were wondering what Hillary has done in her many decades of political service.

5. What is up with this cat? FOR REAL, WHAT IS GOING ON?!

6. As an avid-yet-boring water drinker, La Croix has pretty much changed my life. Here are the flavors, ranked by taste. (Which I totally disagree with…Pamplemousse is THE BEST.)

7. Speaking of La Croix, what your favorite flavor says about you. Hey…I don’t pronounce it “la kwah!”

8. Do you think Trump might quit? Seems some are starting to wonder…

9. The BBC accidentally broadcasted Aziz Ansari subtitles over a nature show. So hilarious.

10. Oh, this is so important right now. How to listen when you disagree. Love this.

11. 3 more days before the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends, and if you must know, I bought this, this, this, and this.

Happy weekend!
