Rabbit, rabbit! This was such a productive week and I’m feeling really good coming into Friday. I have desperately missed this work-productivity feeling. While I don’t define myself by my work output anymore (thank god, those were rough times), I definitely do find work satisfying. Ultimately, I enjoy it a lot as long as I’m not burning myself out that is. My days look a lot different and my #1 priority is caring for Jack, but I’m happy that I’ve been able to find time for work, too. This is something I wasn’t sure about before I had him– I was curious if I’d even want to do this anymore, but turns out I really do! (I do fully recognize the privilege of being able to turn down and turn up work volume on my own schedule– I don’t take it for granted!)
Anyway, just felt like I needed to say that because it really did feel so good this week.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Gingham Bag
I am using all of my willpower to resist getting this bag. I actually have it with the black ribbon and love it! I’m actually obsessed with Pamela Munson’s entire resort collection which just came out. Do I have any plans to travel anywhere tropical this winter? I do not, but I am still over here drooling.
TWO // Jenn Im’s Birth Vlog
Early on in my pregnancy, I started following a bunch of influencers who were also due around the same time. I’ve been loving Jenn Im’s pregnancy vlogs and she just shared a beautiful video about the birth of her son. It’s such a beautiful, and positive, representation of labor and delivery. Kind of wish I had been able to watch it before I myself gave birth!! The nerves, the excitement, the boredom, the joy!
THREE // Quilted Jacket
Saw this Target quilted jacket on TikTok!!! It’s very much on trend right now, but so much more affordable (under $35!) than a bunch of the other ones out there right now. There were a bunch of other prints/colors earlier this week, so they must be sold out online, but it could be worth checking your local store to see if they have more in stock!
FOUR // The Cult of the Nap Dress
Loved this article from Stephanie McNeal about the Nap Dress! You guys know how much I love my Nap Dresses, so I was especially honored that Stephanie interviewed me for the article.
FIVE // Cane Picture Light Sconce
Are these not the cutest picture lights you’ve ever seen? I sent these around to no fewer than six of my friends after I received the email notification about them. I’ve been wanting to have a few picture lights installed (one in our living room and one in our bedroom). Was planning on doing a simple one, but now I’m leaning towards this option for a little bit of interest.
