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:

Shop the Look

  1. Chrissy Teigen’s Glamour Article – I almost cried a few times while sitting at the nail salon reading this piece.  She’s so open and vulnerable about her postpartum depression, and is as relatable as always.  It’s amazing that she’s bringing this topic to the forefront and making it more acceptable for woman to talk about.
  2. The Smartest Person in the Room Podcast – I recently discovered Laura Tremaine through my blogging journey.  She was a successful blogger and is now “podcast-ing.” Her episode with Mike McHargue about how he lost his faith and then found it again in a completely different way was fascinating.  I think everyone can relate to questioning their faith at some point in their life (regardless of religious or lack of religious affiliation).  This interview is honest and inspired me to continue to think about my own evolving feelings of religion and spirituality.  I have to be honest, I didn’t think I’d enjoy this series that she did on religion and I loved this episode.  I’m excited to listen to the rest.
  3. If you live in the North Dallas area, this will excite you: Eatzi’s is coming to Preston & Royal! After moving further north from Uptown, I cannot tell you how much I have missed this gem of a grocery store & restaurant.  That’s not all…Sur la Table is coming too.  In addition to my office supply obsession, I have an abnormal love for kitchen supplies.  I could pretty much move in to Williams Sonoma and / or Sur la Table.  I am stoked!! Steel City Pops just opened up as well but I have not been yet to this location. More info here.
  4. Brunch at Saint Ann in the Harwood District is legit! I had only been for dinner and I tried their brunch for the first time yesterday, and it was delicious.  Saint Ann’s is definitely a place to see and be seen, but their food does not disappoint!  It’s also in a super cute part of town which is expanding.  Other places close by that I recommend are Mercat Bistro (for breakfast / brunch) and Marie Gabrielle (for a wedding venue ;)).

On another note, today’s outfit gives me all of the New England feels and matched this weekend’s tranquil vibes. It feels coastal and cozy. I love this XX look because it can either be dressed up or down, taken from day to night.  Here’s where I paired this bell sleeve Madewell top with Tom’s wedges to give it a more casual feel.

To dress it up, I just changed the shoes to a darker heel and added a bracelet.

If you’re listening to any great podcasts or reading something inspirational, I’d love to hear about it! I hope y’all have a wonderful Monday!
