LATELY - JUNE



Hi, friends. How are things?
I know I say this way too often, but I feel like time is flying by this year.
Is it really already June? I'm definitely not mad about it — rooftop patio season is in full swing!
Because there's just something about a crisp glass of rosé on an open-air rooftop that's just...better. 
On that note, let's get into this month's installment of the "lately" series!

WEARING: One trend I've given into: athleisure. I never really though I'd be into mixing athletic and casual clothing, but it's happening. I think my newfound fondness of the trend has stemmed part out of necessity, part comfort and another part laziness, haha. I've been traveling non-stop lately, and I can't even imagine catching a flight in anything other than my Lululemon Run Inspires (they're seriously the best!). My go-to recently? Pairing my Lulu leggings with this chambray and a basic t-shirt.



WATCHING: The Bachelorette! The Bachelor franchise has been one of my guilty pleasures for the longest time. I remember religiously watching it every week with my mom in high school and making an entire Monday night out of it with my roommates in college. This year, I'm apart of a Bachelor Bracket League with a group of friends! It's something I've been hypothetically talking about for years, and so I'm glad my long-running "joke" has finally become a reality! 



CONSUMING: Well, it's officially iced latte season. I love a good matcha latte, but hey, sometimes only a Bloody Mary will do!


COVETING: Between me and you, I've needed a new pair of white Converse sneakers for months... mine may or may not be a permanent shade of grey (ugh). I've also really been into delicate & feminine Eliza J dresses lately — namely this super adorable two-piece set! I picked up this jacquard floral fit & flare dress for Easter a few months ago and it's seriously stunning. If I could have it my way, my closet would be chock full of as many Nordstrom & J.Crew dresses that I could fit!

    1. I haven't purchased a pair of non-lulu leggings in three years and I can't see myself ever going back to something else!

  2. I've been totally enjoying watching the Bachelorette, too! I think JoJo is just the cutest ever and I NEED her closet. That's so cool that you have a bracket going - I need to do that next season!

    1. It's such a fun idea and something I've wanted to do forever. It's super easy — grab a group of girlfriends & sign up for a league on the bachelorbracket.com!

  4. I love this post! I am traveling in a few weeks and my chambray shirt is something I know I'm definitely packing. It's so versatile and I love that I can throw it over almost anything for another layer! This is my first season watching the Bachelorette, and I'm so hooked! I can see what all the hype is all about now :) Who is your favorite guy in the house?

  9. I've been basically living in athleisure lately- that bachelorette bracket is too funny (and seriously what a great idea)!

  11. Bank Tracker Bot Review

    A simple answer to the question would be, "with patience". Yes, Patience is King. But many never get to see the fruits of their labor primarily because most people quit too soon or they quickly get into something else. Patience is King, but if I want to make money online, how, will patience help me, you may wonder.

  12. I lived in leggings and a chambray and tee while I was in college, especially paired with my white converse! I had to throw mine out after graduation because it honestly was the grossest shade of grey and there was no coming back from it! The purchases you want are definitely on my list too! Fingers crossed I can pick up a new pair soon!

  13. I love pairing my leggings with chambray too! It's perfect for travel, like you said, because you're comfy but you arrive looking at least sort of put together!

  15. I'm so with you on athleisure- nothing better than looking cute and being comfy at the same time! I'm also on the hunt for white Converse, so we're definitely on the same page this month :)
