My Latest Snag: Veronica Beard Fall.
This was a big fall shopping week! I’m especially excited about a few new pieces I picked up from Veronica Beard for the season ahead: this sweater (cannot believe the price!), this denim lady jacket, and this reversible quilted jacket. I also ordered these fabulous Western booties that I’ve been eyeing forever. I feel set for fall!

Weekend Musings: What Do You Want to Be Known For?
I recently came across some of the musings from the general manager of Bugaboo, Jeanelle Teves, and she shared that, when it comes to prioritizing the tasks in her workday: “Not every task is created equally. What are the key projects to devote your best energy to? In other words, what do you want to be famous for? Deliver these with excellence.”
This is true in matters of the workplace, and also in life more generally. What do you want to be known for in life? Incredible organization? Healthful lifestyle? Tasteful clothing? Community spirit? Leadership? Intelligence? Commitment to faith? Dedication to family? Of course, none of us are reduced or confined to a single descriptor (a woman contains multitudes!), but I consider the provocation a fantastic journal prompt for a Saturday morning.
What is one thing I want to be known for in my personal network? How might I align my activities with that goal?
The other side of this coin is, of course, that I have limited time and attention, and that trying to be good at everything is a fool’s errand. How might I let go of the things that don’t matter to me? I think this a skill worth celebrating in and of itself.
+Doen launched it’s pre-fall collection two days ago and a few items already sold out (I’m intrigued by how quickly this dress went — prescient intel!), so jump now if you’re into something. They have a few great options for fall family photo dresses: LOVE this and I own and ADORE this dress in a different pattern.
+Those Doen dresses made me really excited for my new boots. I’d primarily been envisioning pairing them with jeans and denim skirts, but now I’m thinking they’d look great with moody fall florals, too. Think I may have just influenced myself to buy this Doen dress…
+Food52 is offering 20% off sitewide with code CURATOR20. I know many of you snagged these Sabre flatware sets last time I mentioned — great opportunity to buy at a discount! — and the cocktail coupes that garner a lot of questions whenever I snap a photo of myself drinking from one are also included. More favorites here.
+Every time I switch back to using this hand soap, I’m so happy I did. Smells heavenly. Great gender-neutral, high-end scent.
+Attractive folding bamboo chairs at a reasonable price — two for $122.
+Cool girl jeans!
+Looks just like the Cult Gaia clutch, but $50!
+GREAT pair of work heels. They give me Dior vibes.
+A chic LS performance tee.
+OK BUT THIS TRENCH COAT FOR GIRLS. Omg.
+Zara is such a great source for striped tees and other basics for little boys.
