Current Favorites: Podcasts, Slides & Dainty Necklaces

For today’s post, I wanted to do a roundup of some of my current favorite things: podcasts, slides and dainty necklaces.

PODCASTS

First things first: Podcasts.  Recently, whenever I’ve needed some background noise, some inspiration or just some food for the creative / entrepreneurial soul, I’ve turned on a podcast. Some of you recently asked how I prefer to consume podcasts and for me, the most convenient way is though my phone. I click on my “podcasts” app and all of my podcasts are there. I’ll either subscribe to one that I’m loving or I’ll search for individual episodes that I listen to.  Today I want to share with you my favorite podcasts that I’m listening to right now:

PINEAPPLES & Creativity with a Side of Shame and Guilt

Pineapples are having a major moment right now and I’m ALL about it! I’m loving the pineapple tees // tops // shorts.  Banana Republic has some really cute pineapple-embellished shorts right now, which I’m wearing in this look.  This top is also really comfortable and a great staple for work attire.  It’s light enough and can be worn in the summer (and in this Texas heat!), but also made of merino wool, which is perfect under a cardigan or blazer in the fall/winter.  I think I’m actually going to grab the one in hot pink soon. 🙂  Both items are on sale right now:  top is $40.50 and shorts are $37.99.

In addition to this fun summer outfit, I wanted to talk about something a bit more personal on this Monday…a topic that is near and dear to my heart: Creativity and the shame and guilt that can come with it.

PRODUCT REVIEW: PIKOLINOS WALKING SHOES

Hey y’all!

When we were planning our trip to New York, I started looking for some cute walking shoes.  From my experience, that has been an oxymoron. 🙂 However, I felt determined to prove myself wrong.  [In the past, I had purchased Clark’s that my husband made fun of me for because they looked so nerdy! So comfy, yet so nerdy!] So I started to scour the internet for recommendations for comfortable walking shoes where you didn’t have to sacrifice on style.  I looked at various shoes and settled on the Pikolinos Alcudia sandals. They are gladiator-style sandals and I got the ones in ‘Brandy.’  I have to say, these are a little more “outdoorsy” than I typically tend to go but I actually love that they’re a little more rugged.

So here’s the scoop, brass tacks:

New England Vibes // Weekend Roundup

Happy Monday! 🙂

Hope y’all had a peaceful and restful weekend. I certainly did and it was much needed.  Don’t get me wrong, I still ran around town getting all of my errands done but I felt so accomplished as these were things that I just hadn’t had the time for these last couple of weeks.

Taking time to relax this weekend, I got to soak up some goodies.  Here were some of my favorite finds from this weekend:
