friday musings.

Happy Friday!!! Hope you all had a great week. I’ve had some extremely busy weeks at work so these days seem to keep flying by. November already!?

Hard to believe Christmas is around the corner with these 60 degree temps. I’m not complaining but my closet is a tad confused. We’re going to Richard’s godson’s 2nd birthday party Saturday and I’m going to pull out this merlot dress. The ruffles & color pair nicely together for a casual Fall look 🙂

Some musings from this week worth sharing…

First of all, how exciting that the Cubs won the World Series!!! I don’t claim to be a real fan but I was definitely rooting for them. And I mean, can we talk about how dreamy Kris Bryant is!? He & his fiancée are seriously cute together. If you haven’t already – go ahead and creep on her Insta page. You’re welcome.

On another Cubs note, this article about a man driving to his father’s grave to listen to game 7 together is the sweetest.

Now for non-sports related musings… The Wing is a new space in NYC that was born out of the belief that women need a multi-purpose space designed to make their lives easier, and that magic is created when women gather. A friend of mine was telling us about the space last week and it’s oh so inspiring.

And finally, I started a new podcast series this week {read my podcast post here} — it’s called The Lively Show by Jess Lively. I’m really loving her interviews with women in fashion, design & technology.

The overall theme is about living with intention in your everyday life. Her latest Instagram quote is the perfect way to start your weekend. Because we can all use a little more self love. You’re doing awesome 🙂

Cheers! xx
