What I'm Loving

One more day 'til the weekend - happy dance! This Thursday morning calls for a little celebration of the things we're loving lately, don't you think? Here are my loves...

One. Cutest rain boots ever!

I am pretty obsessed with my new Joules rain boots. I love the big bows on the back of them! I'm tempted to wear them everywhere. I actually have my fingers crossed that it snows this year so that I can wear them out in the snow.

Two. This is what my mornings have looked like lately.

A cup of hot chocolate on a sparkly coaster, my Kate Spade planner (that I can't live without), my gold dot notebook I keep all my "to do's" in, and of course those cute bow paper clips. I have really enjoyed taking some time each morning to breathe and plan out my day - it helps me feel much less stressed and overwhelmed! The first thing I do when I feel overwhelmed is make a list and I immediately feel better.

Three. This little trinket bag

I'm loving this origami pouch from Swoozie's. When I traveled to Chapel Hill this weekend I took it with me and it was the perfect size to hold all of my jewelry! It's small enough to fit in your purse but roomy enough for everything you need. I also think it would be perfect for nail polish.

Four. Amazing mascara.
I have recently been asked a lot of questions about the mascara I use! I am sold on L'Oreal's Double Extend mascara... it is better than all of the designer mascaras I've used in the past. I'm a firm believer in priming your lashes before using black mascara, and this tube comes with primer and mascara in one. And it's also super easy to take off - I can't stand mascaras that are hard to get off my lashes at the end of the day!

Five. This J.Crew sweater

How perfect is this sweater with jeweled llamas all over it? I seriously need.

And finally, I'm loving my little Prince George!

Prince George has been sick this week and I had to take him to the animal hospital Tuesday morning. Thankfully the doctor was able to treat him, but he's still not back to his normal self. Isn't it weird how when you have a furbaby of your own, they become your CHILD? You should have seen me on Tuesday morning. I was bawling like Georgie was a real boy. He has definitely needed a lot of love this week!

What are you loving?


  1. those boots are adorable and your mornings look amazing! Mine look kinda similar, but with an 11 month old running around :)

  2. Those rain boots are so cute; I love the way you wore them! Also, I am so sorry about George. I know exactly how you feel! When my cat got sick, I was so worried, luckily everything turned out alright. Tell George that I hope he feels better soon :)
