Happy Sunday! After being stuck in bed with a migraine all day yesterday, I’m feeling extra perky and eager to take advantage of my pain-free head today. Alex and I are heading to brunch in Ballard, followed by a wander through some of my favorite shops. I’m on the hunt for some new office supplies: a pretty plant to fill an empty ceramic pot on my desk, and a new go-to pen (unsurprisingly, I’m very picky about my writing utensils). While I’m off shopping for sundries, give this week’s links of interest a scroll, why don’t you? Hopefully these pretty things will help ward off your Sunday scaries.
It’s that time of year: time to pack away the breezy silk tank tops and unfold the cozy wool sweaters in an effort to stave off the nascent chill in the air. And the first sweater I aired out was this one. I snapped it up last year because of its similarity to a certain Gucci style, and its colorful stripes still make me smile. Last weekend, my striped sweater and I took a trip to an apple orchard to pick some Jonagolds that will soon find themselves baked into a pie.
This is the face of a woman who has purchased nary a shirt, dress, shoe or earring for nine and a half months. For those of you just tuning in: one of my resolutions for 2017 was to abstain from shopping for one whole year, and two-thirds of the way in I’m still going strong. Well…strong-ish.
