Happy Friday! I made the short drive to Shreveport on Wednesday to spend the rest of the week and weekend at my parents’ house. That’s where the photo above was taken (by my sister) earlier this week! 🙂 The weather has been so nice since I arrived! Cool in the mornings and hot in the afternoons. It’s been nice to have a change of scenery and to be here for a bit longer than just the weekend!

I hope your week went well! Either way, it’s Friday, so I think we can all cheers to that!

This Week’s Blog Posts

A light week of blog posts as I worked on a few backend updates to older posts this week. A funny post that I updated with current copy (but the original photos are still included) – this post from 4 years ago reviewing Maho Sunglasses!

Tips for Dining Out During Covid-19 Pandemic // Michael and I have been incorporating one patio dinner date each week over the past few weeks in Houston. It’s been so nice to get out and enjoy a little slice of normalcy. I included all of my tips for how we’ve been dining out safely!

Nordstrom Sale Open to EVERYONE! Cute Fall Outfit Ideas 2020 // The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open for everyone to shop. While a lot of items sold out quickly, keep in mind that most everyone is shopping online this year, so there are likely to be restocks as returns come in.

Weekly Workouts

This week’s workouts …

My workouts were a little sporadic this week. I did at-home Orangetheory on Monday and long walks on Wednesday and Friday. The weather in Shreveport has been so nice this week so I’ve been taking advantage and getting outside!

Weekend Plans

I’m looking forward to a low-key weekend in Shreveport. Hoping for lots of sunshine so I can squeeze in some pool time! I’m heading back to Houston on Sunday so I’ll be soaking up time at home until then!

My Favorite Things this Week

Topshop Space Dye Sweater // I snagged this sweater from the Nordstrom Sale and shockingly it’s still fully stocked! I ordered a size small and my mom ordered a medium. We agree it runs TTS. It’s SO cute in person! And so cozy!

cabi Coffee Shop Cardigan (gifted) // Obsessed doesn’t cover how in love with this cardigan I am! It’s cute online, but it’s 100% cuter in person! It has colorful threads all woven through the cardigan and a touch of sparkle yarn too! You can’t really see these features in the photos online, but trust me! It’s so freaking cute and cozy and a piece I’ll be wearing all fall/winter! It’s oversized. I have a size XS and love the fit, but I could have easily gone to a XXS too.

Have a great weekend!
