SALE ALERT!: Remember those jeans I couldn’t shut up about in this post? They’re currently part of Shopbop’s Big Event sale — it’s a tiered sale, so if you spend $250, you get 15% off your entire purchase, then the savings scale up from there. Use the code BIGEVENT15 to get the savings! I took advantage of it this week and bought another pair of those J Brand jeans (they really were that good, y’all), as well as these Sam Edelman booties that I’ve been eyeing forever. I’ll basically wear them year round in San Francisco.
YES, I JUST SAID SAN FRANCISCO: If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen the big news. Joe and I are moving back to SF at the end of this month! I have been working on a post all about the when and why for days now. I have a lot to tell, but it’s almost hard to figure out how to tell it. Look for that early next week — I’m forcing myself to get it all out this weekend! We’re very excited.
OPTING OUT: I read this essay earlier in the week about opting out of motherhood and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. If you’ve ever been in the camp of wondering if you wanted to have kids, you’ll enjoy this.
DECORATING INSPIRATION: Moving (to a 6th apartment in 5 years. Send help.) means we get to decorate again! We’re probably keeping much of our furniture and only adding a few new pieces, but this week, Tobe’s beautiful home tour on Design*Sponge got me inspired. Her home is so colorful, feels lived in, and has lots of brass. What’s not to love?
ROSE & IVY: I didn’t get to tell you last week, so I’m a bit late here, but to put it on your radar, the new quarterly issue of Rose & Ivy has been released. Remember when I talked about it here? Alison has done another gorgeous job of putting together what’s very obviously a labor of love (and good taste). I know you will enjoy browsing through this!
DON’T ASK, JUST DO: Every single one of these suggestions for how to truly be there for friends in need is on point. Bookmark this one, and then live by it.
OR ON FLEEK: I almost wrote “on fleek” at the end of the first sentence in the previous bullet, which led me to Googling where the hell that phrase came from and how it wormed its way into my vernacular. Here, a brief history.
LIKE RAYS OF SPRING SUNSHINE: I love this simple DIY for copper and white succulent planters! Something to try if you’re feeling crafty this spring (it’s super easy, too).
It snowed in New York twice this week, and some days, it honestly feels like winter will never end. It was fun for two seasons, but I’m glad I’ll never have to put up with an east coast winter again! There has been so much going on the last two weeks I don’t even know where to begin. We basically decided we were moving two Mondays ago, and in that time, listed our apartment in NY, rented a new one in SF, and hired movers (along with lots of other little moving-related tasks). It’s been crazy. More next week…
Until then, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
