How was your week? Overall it was a fantastic week of productivity and fun. Balanced all the stuff I needed to get done with some fun stuff too. Now that I’m two-weeks past my second vaccination, I felt comfortable booking a few things that I am *so* looking forward to. I got a haircut yesterday, booked a prenatal massage, and (!!!!) made plans to go visit my family in Florida at the end of the month!!!!!!!! My parents, aunt and uncle, and grandma are all fully vaccinated too. I am beyond grateful and so excited to see everyone safely. Hallelujah!
ON MY RADAR 4.9.21
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
ONE // Freedom Moses x J. Crew
I am obsessed with my Freedom Moses sandals (here’s my full review of them). They were my go-to shoe all of last summer and I am already anticipating a similar situation this year. Especially since I imagine I’ll be hot and swollen during the peak summer months. I have the silver pair already…. but couldn’t resist adding the J. Crew gingham version to my cart! I can’t wait!
This was a fantastic listen for parents. Even though Mike and I are quite a ways away from having a teenager, we have been having the conversations within our family of how we’ll handle conversations around drugs and alcohol with our children. This podcast episode has realistic and important takeaways for how to handle this as a parent– from how we talk about our own relationships with alcohol and drugs to giving teens the toolbox for handling their own choices when they are with friends.
THREE // Jollie Yoga Mats
I recently received a press release for these new yoga mats. I was so impressed with the designs and the cause, I knew I had to share with you guys. The hydrangea print is absolutely darling. The best part though is that for every mat sold, Jollie donates one to a pediatric cancer patient. You can even send them your old yoga mats and they will recycle it for you!
FOUR // The Jane
Oh man, I have so many great wicker bags for the summer months, but it doesn’t stop me from lusting over more. (I swear every year, they just get better and better.) This one from Pamela Munson could not be cuter. I love the Liberty lining and Jane Birkin-inspired shape.
Everyone loves pockets, right? When I find a dress with pockets, I know I have hard time not telling everyone who walks by, “It has pockets!!!!” This first grader wrote a letter to Old Navy as part of a persuasive essay lesson at school on why the jeans should all include pockets and they agreed! The jeans should have pockets– they even sent her a few pairs.
