Good morning, hello and welcome to August! This post was h-a-r-d to write. Not because I don’t have any recent loves, but because we’ve been so ridiculously busy (with mostly fun stuff!) that I’ve barely taken two spare minutes to think about what I’m into lately. Luckily – for me and you! – I pulled it together and came up with 6 things I loved in July. Let’s jump into it!
+ Cuisinart Toaster Oven. You know that you’re an adult when … 😉 But, seriously – I LOVE our new toaster oven. Not kidding when I say I’ve used our real oven only a handful of times since we bought this. It’s great for reheating leftovers, making veggies and cooking frozen foods (think chicken nuggets, tater tots, etc.). I imagine I might even use it to make a small batch of cookies in the near future!
+ Threshold Halsted Wicker Patio Set. I briefly mentioned our backyard makeover in my last coffee chat, and it continues to be a work in progress! We found this small patio set on clearance and knew we couldn’t pass it up. It’s the perfect size for just Ryan and I (Finn also manages to squeeze himself into the chair with me), and oh so comfy! Better yet we can add to the set with other pieces in the future.
+ Kona Sol Scoop Back One Piece Swimsuit. Isn’t the color combination of this suit so pretty and slightly unexpected? I wasn’t sure about it on the hanger, but it is SO flattering on. I imagine it would suit a lot of different body types. The straps are adjustable, there is padding in the bust area, and there’s high/full coverage in the back. Basically the most perfect one-piece suit ever to be created.
+ Universal Thread Maritza Multi Strap Toe Slide Sandals. Hands-down my favorite casual sandals. They’re comfortable for a basic flip flop, and the style goes with a variety of outfits. I have them in both white and black, and they’re pretty much all I wear these days.
What we watched
+ Stranger Things season 3. We thought this season overall was way, way, way better than season two – minus some of the gross/graphic stuff that really creeped me out. Beyond that, the overall vibe was nostalgic and super fun. I also want Nancy’s entire wardrobe.
+ Queer Eye season 4. It has previously been established how much I love this show and the Fab 5, so I won’t ramble. But, if you haven’t gotten to the new season yet you need to ASAP. I feel like Jonathan and Antoni really shine, and there’s some really incredible people in each episode. Get your tissues ready!
What I’m looking forward to in August: A quick trip to Chicago to see my brother and knock off John Mayer from my concert bucket list; my hair appointment – thinking Lily James’ bob might be my inspiration!; and soaking up the last month of summer!
