Another week of highs and lows. As much as I love real rollercoasters, I’m very much over the rollercoaster that is 2020… Mike had some relaxing days up at the lake which was a high, but my family’s cat Pookie passed away which was very much a low. Ugh.
My mom and dad had a cat named Puffy before my sister or I were born and she lived to be 20! When she passed away, we didn’t think we’d get another cat for a while, but life had other plans. A few weeks later, our eye doctor called us to say that they had found an orange and white tabby cat in their backyard and asked if we wanted to rescue it since they were all allergic. That’s how we ended up with SoHo… but when we took him to the vet, there was a crate of kittens up for adoption and there was little Pookie. He had the loudest purr my mom and I had ever heard and though we walked in with one cat, we walked out with two! We will miss him ❤️
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
ONE // Parent Trap Reunion
You don’t want to miss this! Katie Couric interviewed the cast of Parent Trap in a Zoom reunion! I hope they do something similar where they can all be in person, but the video conference is still pretty good. I want to rewatch the movie ten times this weekend, it just is the best kind of nostalgia.
TWO // Dreamwell Flounce Dress
I am all about the comfortable dresses every summer, but particularly now. I ordered this one this week and, fingers crossed, it’ll be a great lounge around the house dress that can double as a coverup when needed. It looks a bit like a nightgown and I’m not sure how opaque the fabric will be… but it still seems cute and I’m excited to try it on!
Okay, this is for all my Normal People fans out there! Paul Mescal (aka Connell) just did a duet with his sister and, um, it’s amazing. They’re both incredibly talented but it’s also very sweet to see the brother and sister sing together.
FOUR // Tie Shoulder Linen Top
Had to share this super cute linen top with bows at the shoulders. It’s currently 25% off and seems like the perfect summery top. I’m leaning towards the black, but it also comes in white, pink, and a chartreuse.
FIVE // Kim Kardashian on Mental Health
Kim Kardashian released a statement about mental health after her husband Kanye West experienced another manic episode as a result of his bipolar disorder. Honestly, I thought it was so, so brilliant. Even though mental health is much more celebrated now than it has been in the past, sometimes the stigma is still largely there for individuals. I think a lot of families can relate to the struggle of caring and wanting the best for a loved one who is struggling.
