Weekend Musings: Causes and Consequences.
I came across some really stirring words this week:
I think this might be not only true of anger but other unsavory sentiments. A good reminder to live with measure, proportion, forethought…!
+Just discovered this wildly popular Tonies box is still available to arrive by Christmas! I bought one for mini but am saving it for her birthday in March. I have heard so many great things! Screen-free storytelling toy!
+In a similar vein: this chic tweed cardi is now on sale for under $100.
+Why I was looking at swimsuits the other day, I do not know, as have no plans for warm weather travel, but I love the new style of this Marysia bikini top! Might buy and pair with some Marysia bottoms I already have to update the look!
+But! This is one of my all-time favorite swim styles — so glam and unexpected! — and I wear it season after season in the black and it is on super sale for only $160!!! Also personally eyeing this pink scalloped one-piece to add to my ever-growing Marysia collection…so pretty!
+These popular slippers are on sale for like 70% off in the prettiest pink.
+This Horror Vacui dress is 60% off and would be stunning for a family portrait or newborn shoot. I have bought so many high-end pieces on ridiculous sale at Matches, including my small collection from Horror Vacui and Emilia Wickstead! The prices are SO good!
+OMG YES to this mini. Wow. One of the ages.
+This would be such an unexpected gift for a new mom / baby shower. The packaging is beyond!
+Treat yourself to an unexpected pastel beanie.
+This classic field jacket for a little one is on super sale!
+You can twin with your mini man in this.
+OMG. I’m set for Christmas for my children but I just impulse-added these vintage-style Barbies to my cart…I want them. Haha!
+Simple, classic mules to wear with everything in the new year.
+Another great closet organization set.
+More home organization finds.
+These might be the chicest sandals I’ve ever seen. Bottega vibes.
+Fun plaid coat, 50% off!
