Early Fall Wish List

We got teased with some cooler weather yesterday and my thoughts immediately went to the crisp Fall air that's coming - shame on me since all year we dream about warmer temps, but I've had my fill of the heat, I've got a pair of new boots that are just asking to be worn and I'm ready to enjoy my favorite season! Since I don't partake in back to school shopping, I decided it would totally be appropriate to indulge in a little "it's a new season" shopping! That should be a thing, right?!
Quilted Vest || Felt Hat || Long Cardigan || Wrap Around Apple Watch Band || MAC Lipstick "Blankety" || KS "Elisa" Necklace" || Leopard Flats || Olive Skinny Jeans || Dark Wash Denim Jeans 
I may or may not have walked my leopard flats to the bone earlier this year so I'm in desperate need of another pair. If you recall from this post I had a few animal print flats on my mind since they go with everything and the best part is the pair I had is on sale for under $40!! Thankfully Macy's is still carrying them! 
I wasn't really sure about felt hats, but as you can see from my profile picture on the right - I'm actually pretty into them and how they look on me! I like the grey color of this Leith one and the best part is the price - $15!! When it's a trendier piece like this, I want to make sure I'm not over spending in case I hate how it looks on me! 
Can I tell you that I've had a quilted vest on my "wishlist" since I moved to Boston 7 years ago...that's right I've been searching for the right fitted vest for that long!! Apparently I'm not as easy going with clothes as I thought I was - BUT quality is key here so I'm willing to pay a little more, to get a better fit! I love the look of the faux leather accents on this Ralph Lauren navy vest! 
I love the fit of Ann Taylor jeans, I've actually gotten rid of most of my other pairs because the fit of these is so great! I love these olive colored modern skinny jeans and this darker wash - I have the lighter wash and I love that it doesn't loose the shape after a couple of wears! 
I love cardigans for two reasons - they are incredibly cozy and perfect to just throw on and you can wear them with leggings and not have to worry about showing that booty! 
Dainty necklaces make me so happy and the new Kendra Scott collection is just that! Dainty, pretty and girly - with a little bit of grit! My boss actually has the "Elisa" pendant and I always admire it - especially since it matches with practically everything! 
I tend to wear my eye makeup a bit heavier as it gets colder so I like to keep my lipstick pretty neutral and guess who just ran out of their MAC lipstick?! This girl, so that means another one is needed!! Trying "blankety" - you guessed it, another nude pink! 
I've had my Apple Watch for almost a year and I am not going back to a regular watch for the foreseeable future - no need when I can switch my bands out whenever the mood strikes! The one type missing for me is the leather wrap around one and I go to Amazon to get all my bands! 
You'll notice a new bag is missing from this list and that's because I'm still completely in love with my Regan Satchel - I have been wearing it non-stop for the last month and that will continue on through the next season!! 
What's on your Fall wishlist? Do you miss back to school shopping?

Friday Favorites Round Up

Well hello there friends!! Between gearing up for our Bridal Pop Up this weekend (Sunday) & a few weeknight outs - it's been quite the week and I'm so excited for the weekend.

Signs by Posh & Prep - one of our amazing vendors this weekend! 

Shake Shack's 100th Restaurant Opening || 


On Monday night Gary and I went to the grand opening of the newest Shake Shack in Boston in the Seaport! Before heading to the opening, we stopped by the Envoy Hotel to take in some views...and drink some wine!! It's usually jam packed, but I guess the trick is going on a Monday! 
If you haven't had a shake shack burger yet...you're absolutely missing out - they are so good!! Also really good...their cheese fries - now I think it's okay I forgot to eat lunch that day! 

Favorite Dinner ||


So that truffled mac & cheese might not look pretty, but I assure you it was decadent and delicious!! Wednesday night my friend Heather and I decided to have an impromptu dinner and met up at Smith & Wollensky! Their outdoor patio was perfect at night & we didn't even realize that it was restaurant week - that was a nice surprise! 

Professional Photos ||




We got the professional photos back Keen Photography and I can't even tell you how happy I am with how the photos turned out from Carolin! She did such a great job dealing with the craziness of the hour and taking all the photos we wanted - and then some! 

Favorite Celebrity Look || 

I love this effortlessly put together look from Sarah Hyland  - from the bronzed makeup to the colorful heels - I love it all!! It would be so easy to recreate too! 

Favorite Links ||


|| We're going to Nashville in a couple of months and this guide could not have been more perfectly timed!

|| This makes me want to get my mom and dad on snapchat 

|| I think I can master the "S" wave

|| This is slightly terrifying news about water bottles

|| As soon as we move - I'm making this salad


That's a wrap on the week friends!! Hope you all have an amazing weekend and I'll see you back here Monday for some weekending action! 



Confessions

In almost three years of blogging I've never done an actual confessions post so I thought why not?! The truth is, this entire year has been one of the busiest that I can remember, and I feel like I need a little brain dump to let some things out! Let's start right now...I'm actually eating a freeze pop as I write this because it's so hot in my apartment! 

I Confess...

Weekending | Quick Trip to Florida

Happy Monday friends!! I'm back from a long weekend in Florida celebrating my grandmother's 90th birthday!! I couldn't believe that it had been over a year since the last time I went back home...does anyone else wonder at what point your hometown stops being your home?! Regardless, I saw some friends, met their babies & fit in a lot of family time! Here's a few snaps from our pseudo vacation!
