It is hard to believe we are heading into July this coming week! After the slowest and challenging 2020, it feels like 2021 is on fast forward. Does anyone else feel this way? I am making plans, seeing friends, and I am headed on my first vacation/work trip this week. I will share more details on the trip soon. It won’t feel real until I am actually on the plane headed towards the sunshine.

How to Get Through Summer Like a French Woman. This is a favorite of mine from this week. Such fun and helpful tips from the woman who started Sézane.

This was such a helpful post on traveling to Europe right now. As I am about to leave on a trip this coming week, it was even more relevant. I will report back once I return from my trip on what it is like to travel in Europe.

I have been using my Madewell transport tote when I am out and about for the last couple of months especially with Henri. See what I pack in my tote and why I love it so much with this post.

This SNL skit is so relatable and hilarious. I saw it last night and I knew I had to share with you.

I ordered a few dresses for the trip and for Summer in general. This dress is currently 50% off the sale price. I got a small one and it fits great. This dress from Sézane is also half off and only $85. I know I will wear this all Summer long and next year too. A great piece to have in your dress collection.

How to Find (and curate) Your Personal Aesthetic

I had to scramble to find a new bathing suit before leaving this week. I ended up ordered this one, this one, and this one piece. I put a rush on the order and should get them before I leave.

I did a fun Q and A with Alyssa my new Brand Manager on the blog. We asked each other a series of questions to get to know us better. She has been a great addition to the team and she has an adorable dog JP.

If you are looking for a new pair of sunglasses, Nordstrom has Ray-ban currently priced matched. I don’t know how long this will last for so snatch them while you can. I got a pair for my trip!

What Will Become of the Pandemic Pets? – I relate to this excerpt, “A recent survey found that three out of four American millennials own a pet, a fashionable generalization being that since they can’t afford to buy homes and don’t want kids, they are nesting instead with their “fur babies.” Little dogs in bags and strollers, on laps at restaurants, in funny hats and sweaters.” Alyssa
