Monday Musings

Hi, friends! Happy Monday. I've been musing over starting a series that is open-ended and can just include chatting with you about whatever is on my mind at the moment, so this is the first...

Today (Sunday) was the first day in three weeks that I had time to work on the blog - take pictures, write posts, etc. That doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about it all of the time, but I still don't have the hang of keeping it going while I'm on the road. A ski trip last weekend turned into a week-long vacation after I got stuck in Colorado for three extra days due to the bad weather.. whoops! It's not a bad place to be stuck, but since I didn't have my luggage, it wasn't very productive. It was lovely to finally be back in Baltimore for enough time to do laundry and get back into my schedule, but now I'm headed to a conference in Salt Lake City for the week. Don't worry though - I finally have a good group of posts lined up for this week, so crossing my fingers that you won't see a long absence from me in awhile. Nothing makes me happier then having new content to roll out!

Work has been insanely stressful over the last couple of weeks, so I've been doing too much online shopping to make myself feel better. Do you do this too? It's not something I recommend, and I usually end up returning about 90% of my orders, but it's still a little too dangerous. I've been waiting months for Shopbop to have their tiered sale, and of course it happened last week while I was trying not to shop. You can see above that I was unable to resist. The Shopbop sale is a great time to order things that you have been eyeing for awhile, because most of their stock does not go on sale anywhere else - Stuart Weitzman shoes, Karen Walker Sunglasses, Clare Vivier bags, Rag & Bone Denim, and much more. I've been wanting a pair of black sunglasses and this leopard clutch for nearly 8 months, so you'll be seeing both of these in quite a few outfit posts coming up!

Last, but not least, I'm verrrry excited to be attending the Create+Cultivate Conference in LA in two weeks!! One of my favorite bloggers, Julia, posted on her Instagram last weekend that she was speaking at the conference, and when I saw the line-up, I couldn't stop thinking about it, talking about it, and generally obsessing about it for three whole days (while I was stuck in Colorado). So! The flight is booked and I'm heading back to LA for a quick trip to attend the conference. Hopefully I'll be coming back with new friends, and some inspiration for this little blog of mine. And obvi I can't wait to see my BFF again so soon!

I'm off to finish packing for SLC, but I'll be back again on Wednesday. xoxoxo
