loving lately

Started rearranging some things around the house and used this sideboard as a holding ground for some paintings + photos while I figured out where to put them permanently. Ended up kind of loving them all stacked there so decided to leave it for now!

Got to try some new lipsticks by Kosas. All of her lipsticks are hand crafted and are free of preservatives and synthetic fragrances. The ingredients are carefully sourced and are proven to boost collagen, soften and plump lips, and protect against environmental damage. These are hydrating lipsticks, but worth noting—I don't find that they glide on super easily. The best way to apply from my experience is by dabbing the lipstick on your lips. If you do that, the color looks great and blends super well, the formula feels hydrating, and it wears a long time. 

Loving the Stardust shade. It's described as a sheer neutral nude with pink and brown undertones. It's one of those "my lips but better" shades. (Also wearing this Kate Spade W pendant.)

Three pairs of sunglasses priced really well. Apparently it's almost impossible to not be reflected back in the lenses. Well, I tried! The bottom two are my favorites, but here are the links from left to right (or top to bottom?).

ARCONA Triad Pads! I have talked about how much I love these before. I mix them in with my Beautycounter Nourishing skincare routine. During the month of October, ARCONA will be donating 25% of the proceeds of sales for ARCONA Triad Pads to Cancer and Careers, an organization that empowers and educates individuals with cancer to thrive in the workplace.

Lastly, really loving this little lion. Heart melted into a puddle. (You can save 25% off Halloween costumes at Chasing Fireflies with code ZOMBIE01)


what i wore: blue on blue

I think I've found the best blue button down ever. I've been on the search for years. Something that's relaxed, but doesn't look sloppy. Nothing business-y either. Well here it is: The Blue Shirt Shop Nassau and Manhattan Oxford by DL1961. And it's on sale for 30% off, so hey—get it while ya still can. 

I paired it with my new Citizens of Humanity Principle Girlfriend Jeans and these fun Le Specs No Smirking Sunglasses that come in at under $80. Using my beloved Gigi NY Carly Clutch and these Schutz Enida Sandals that I oddly bought when I was super pregnant and are finally getting a little use.

pumpkin patch

Something I love about being a momma is being able to experience things through my baby's eyes. We get a pumpkin every year, but I normally just pick one up at the grocery store. Now that we have Watson, we couldn't not take him to a pumpkin patch at a church down the street from us. I mean, after seeing how his tiny face lit up at the apple orchard last weekend, I was really excited to see how he would look at all of those orange pumpkins! So Brandon took a long lunch break and we headed over to the patch to let Watson pick out a pumpkin. We ended up coming home with three because we're an indecisive bunch. And of course I had to dress him in his pumpkin jon jon. Anyway, here are photos from our time there! In typical mom style, I took about 300 pictures.

This picture below seriously makes my heart melt big time.

Outfit details:
Tory Burch Flip Flops (this is the updated style and it's 25%-30% off with code MAINEVENT16)

things I own that are on sale from shopbop

Good Thursday morning! I'm sharing some pieces I own today that are included in the Shopbop sale I talked about yesterday. All of the items I am linking below are 25%-30% off until Friday with code MAINEVENT16.

Happy Shopping! (I've already placed two orders and am having to practice restraint from not going on the site anymore. I feel like I'm still catching up from 9+ months of not really buying much and I'm still rebuilding my wardrobe after a recent purge! So hey, I have an excuse.)

the event of the season (shopbop 30% off and my picks)

I literally checked Shopbop right before midnight last night because I was wondering if I had missed their big 25%-30% off everything sale. Didn't see anything about it. Then this morning, the sale started! Crazy. 

Just use code MAINEVENT16 at checkout.

This includes high end designer styles—things that never go on sale! Shop quick though. Things sell out fast. 

I'm going to be adding my favorite picks to this post continuously, but here are my initial favorites.
