Monday Morning Musings | No. 48

Better Late Than Never…

I had all of these grand plans to write today’s blog post on the plane home last night, but after a day of walking around Brooklyn in sub 30 temperatures I was too exhausted. I was so cold all day (I blame my Florida blood) and by the time I was settled into my seat on the plane it was warm and cozy and I fell right to sleep! Whoops! 

But these Monday posts are my favorite, so I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to get this one published, plus there were so many fun things I just HAD to tell you about. 

Also, I will pick back up on our New York Diaries (catch up on day 1, day 2, & day 3) starting tomorrow… I have a few more to publish and I’m loving seeing how much you all enjoy reading them. They feel like very old school blogging, which I have to admit that I love! 

Anyway, happy Monday! 

5 Things I’m Loving:

Favorite New Hoodie

I picked up this wool/cashmere blend hoodie from Vineyard Vines while in NYC last week and I am so glad I did! I’m obsessed with the fit, it’s slightly cropped but also extremely cozy!! I love that it’s a twist on a classic crew neck sweater, and it will for sure become a staple in my closet for years to come! 

Note: I’m wearing a size XS and in the photo above I have a t-shirt under it… fits like a dream!

The Cutest Phone Case

While bouncing around Bleecker Street in between meetings we stumbled across The Daily Edit shop. I instantly wanted everything in the shop and this phone case was on the tippity top of my list. 

I’m pretty sure if I hadn’t just bought an overpriced cookie (ha!) three shops earlier this would have come home with me. I can’t stop thinking about it! 

Note: If you are into personalized anything, you will LOVE The Daily Edit!

Comfiest Ballet Flats

I know I talked about these ballet flats last week, but they arrive tomorrow and I’m so excited I can’t stand it!

If you are looking for comfortable, chic, and affordable ballet flats look no further.

Polka Dot Suit

I was going through our mail late last night and flipping through the new Boden catalog. I stopped dead in my tracks when I came across this polka dot suit. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. 

Seriously, do you shop at Boden?! I never really have, but this set is going to be my first purchase. I am legit obsessed. 

Shop Jacket & Pants

February’s Book!

Another fun mail surprise last night was coming home to February’s book club read… I am so excited to start it tonight! Have you gotten your book yet?! So excited to see so many of you have already ordered. 

Also, I extended the Year of Books Giveaway until Wednesday of this week, make sure you enter to win!
