it’s like someone drew this specifically for me…. summer described in one image!
Cheers to Friday!!!! Short weeks are the best aren’t they?!
I wanted to share two steals I found over Labor Day Weekend.
There’s a store in Brookhaven called Dress Up that I stopped into and really liked. It reminded me of a Francesca’s in terms of price (everything is a steal!) but they have a lot more inventory. They were having 25% off everything in the store and I ended up getting these mules for only $19!
I’ll be doing a post tomorrow with similar steal styles because I absolutely love them and am now on a mule kick!
Another $15 find is this maxi dress from Target.
I saw online that they also have it in solid black which would be a perfect go-to to have in the closet.
This would work for everything from work to the weekend.

I updated Coffee Talk yesterday when I saw that Arie had been announced as the next Bachelor. I for one am relieved, because I was getting very nervous when I realized Peter wasn’t happening! I liked him when it was Emily Maynard’s season (and thought she should have picked him over Jef), so hopefully he will be a breath of fresh air (somewhat fresh, God forbid they get someone new!) I know not everyone has seen every episode of every season in existence like myself (hashtag blessed) so here is a rundown of him from Emily’s season. And yes, I remember him looking like THE BEST KISSER EVER. Also, I think it’ll be refreshing to have someone that didn’t enter the Bachelor franchise looking for their 15 minutes of fame. I know there are already haters of him out there and all the dirt on him will come out, but I think it’s just all you newbies not giving him a chance! I saw this article about why he will prove the haters wrong and loved it. I really don’t think I have been this happy about a Bachelor in years….. this is as close to my beloved Andrew Firestone as we are probably ever going to get, so I am jumping for joy.
editors note: don’t ever pick someone named Jef with one F. I mean, seriously?!

New York Fashion week has begun!!! I’m looking forward to seeing all of the images, but the hair on Kendall and Gigi in the Tom Ford show is haunting me.
A guide to finding the perfect self tanner. Why must summer come to an end!? I love that this ranks them on everything from ease, depth of tan, how long it lasts, and most importantly smell!
I am still not on board with the new Taylor Swift song (are you all hearing what I’m hearing?? because I’m confused) but I do like Zayn Malik’s new song with Sia.
We watched the Documentary What the Health (ugh. great but alarming) and have been trying to reduce our meat and dairy (but I can never quit it…. ) so I loved some of these high protein vegetarian recipes.
A low impact, but high intensity, workout to try this weekend from home.
