I’ve been really struggling to stay organized lately. The month leading up to our move to Connecticut was hectic and chaotic. It was right in the middle of back to school (big blog time!) and we had a trip out to Indiana. Then we moved and pretty much immediately hit the ground running with a week-long trip to Bonaire. I feel like I was barely keeping my head above the water work-wise. There was just so much to do and I was doing the best I could!
I’m relieved to have a little break in terms of travel (for now… oy.) and can finally really dig my heels back into my daily routine and schedule. While the actual tasks I do during the day vary, one thing remains the same: I love a good list.
Writing down what I have to do not only keeps me organized and ensures I don’t forget something, it relieves some of my stress. Knowing what I have to do and when it will get done makes me feel confident and ready for the day.
Whitney, the creative behind Heart and Arrow, sent me one of these notepads (use code “CARLY” for 10%!) a while back and it remains a favorite of mine. I tend to keep my agenda-ing digital nowadays, but I still like writing down my tasks. Especially if I don’t have any meetings and need to get through a lot of desk work.
I also like how the notepad is flexible and you can use it for all kinds of days. You’re not limited by the text at all. You can use it to plan your weekends. You can use it every now and then without having weeks worth of blank pages (my biggest pet peeve about planners). You could even use it to plan and keep track of a trip’s itinerary!

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
Fall for me means tailored blazers, touches of corduroy, and cozy sweaters… @jcrew, as always, has us covered with all the classics! Shop my head to toe look with @shop.ltk #liketkit https://liketk.it/4iOR7 #injcrew #ad
