I have been in a bit of a fog this week! I had such an amazing weekend, and it just made Monday feel like an extra letdown. On Saturday, I got a severe sunburn. I’m pretty sure it was more in the category of sun poisoning. (I am very angry with myself for letting it happen because I know better!) Anyway, between the sunburn and high pollen counts, I haven’t felt myself completely.
The absolute highlight of my week was playing with the dogs in the park. I’m so thankful for the huge green space (even if I feel like a walking allergy medicine ad right now) and the pups agree. They know when we’re pulling into the parking lot, and you would think they were five-year-olds going to Disney world. I added a few photos to their Instagram account as crazy dog ladies do.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Tennis Prints at Anne Taylor
Earlier this week, I had lunch in Westport. I was walking to my car and passed the Ann Taylor. They had gorgeous tennis print shorts in the window, and I popped inside. I love the shorts, and then I saw that they have an even more amazing tennis racquet eyelet dress. Or you could go for a silk scarf or a skirt. I can’t choose!
I fell in love with this suite when I saw a sneak peek on Instagram. It’s everything you could want in a Lilly Pulitzer hotel room and more. I’d be afraid to stay there only because I think I’d want to move in and never return.
THREE // Two Tone Bow Flat
HOW CUTE ARE THESE FLATS? So chic and the price point is not bad at all. I do not need another pair of shoes, but these are very tempting.
FOUR // The Joy of Having Boys
I can’t be the only girl on the planet who has dreamed of future children, right? For years, I could only picture myself having girls. Between having a little sister and a borderline obsession with dolls, I really couldn’t imagine having a boy. Boys seemed so foreign to me! And then I spent time with my friend’s younger brother, and I remember this lightbulb going off in my head like, “Oh! Having a boy would be so much fun.” It sounds so lame to type out, but that’s the truth. Now one of our family friends have two little boys whom I adore so much, and one of my best friends has a curly-haired sweetheart boy. I’d be the luckiest to have a boy half as cute as theirs.
Okayyyy… That’s all to say that I read this post from A Cup of Jo (one of my favorite blogs) about the joy of having boys and I loved the honest and thoughtful remarks from moms.
Ending on a heartwarming note. This little girl received a new sports blade prosthetic leg, and when she returns to school, she gets a warm welcome from her friends. I love how she shows it off with such pride, and her friends are SO excited for her. The world needs more of this.
