GOOD MORNING! By the time you are reading this, I’ll be away on my girls’ weekend with my mom and sister (and hopefully SLEEPING IN)!!! We planned this to celebrate my sister’s 30th birthday, and I’ve been looking forward to it for months. This is my first trip away from Nora (other than an overnight once or twice), which is hard, but I think it is so good for all of us. *Sam told me yesterday that he would probably forget what I even looked like while I’m gone. Direct quote from him: “It will be like I didn’t even come out of your tummy.” Awesome buddy. I’m glad it just takes two nights for me to be erased from your life. 😉
Anyway, this is a shorter list today because I wanted to get it ready in time to go out of town, but there are some good ones nonetheless. Enjoy!
“Two Questions to Refine Your Personal Style” – this goes nicely with yesterday’s post. (I’m drapey/matte, I think.) Also, “Fashion in the Thirties” – I think Anne and I were on the same page this week. 😉
“Dear Worn-Out, Run-Down, Absolutely Exhausted Teacher” – I shared a similar message for teachers in my newsletter on Thursday (before I read this), but she says it so much better.
“A Short History of Too-Short Skirts” – My students love to talk about dress-code (and by “talk about,” I mean “complain about”), and I found this pretty interesting. (See also: “Don’t We Have This Modesty Thing Backwards?” from Kendra.)
“Top 6 Finger Foods That Are Safe & Delicious for Infants” – I’ve done baby-led weaning with Nora and LOVED it, but I still worried about choking sometimes. This is a great list of worry-free foods to feed your baby
How cute are these summer snow globes?
I saw this new book – Everyone by Christopher Silas Neal – on Cup of Jo and think it looks excellent.
The Brunch Buffet Dress from Modcloth basically combines everything I love.
How great at these muslin swaddles?
A friend of mine just started a great new Etsy shop called Witty Fox. She’s selling hand-made and repurposed jewelry and many of her styles are designed to be used with essential oils. Check her out!
Finally, I just bought this dress to wear out Saturday night, and it is perfect! (I think it’s cuter in person.) I also bought a shirt that I shared on Instagram last night (here). I can’t find it online, but I love it!!
And there you have it! Have a great weekend! (Follow me on Instagram for pics of my weekend getaway – a selfie-stick will definitely be making an appearance.)
