Happy late summer fall Friday! My friends seem pretty split on the team summer/ team fall situation, but I know I for one and thrilled that I got to bust out my boots yesterday when it was below 60 as I got dressed for work. Plans this weekend include lunch at the Cathedral and maybe a nap?
My thoughts are with Florida this week. I grew up going back and forth a few times a year and have family and close family friends in both south Florida and the Keys. Please be safe, everyone!

I found a really nifty app called Acorns for micro-investing that essentially lets you set it and forget it by investing spare change from purchases you’re already making. I honestly have no idea how to invest, but would like to learn (and save up for a down payment on a house), so this app seems just about right for me. I’ve read a ton of reviews, and it seems as though the one downside is a $12 annual fee for accounts under $5000. The best review I’ve seen about it is on Budgets are Sexy as it lays out all the pros and cons. Because of the nature of my new job, I’m waiting for approval to finish my signing up process, but I’d love to know if you’ve ever used it! If you’re interested in trying it out, you can use my link and get an automatic $5 with your first investment!
I’m all about shopping local and I’m so excited that Shop Made in DC is going to be a thing come October!
I really, really love trains, probably because my cool af grandfather collected models and took me on an overnight train trip when I was little. There’s a train trip in Canada I want to take with massive windows and NO WIFI so you can enjoy the sights of the country and the stars at night. SO DOWN.
As much as I sometimes get down on myself and my shape, I truly believe that fashion has no size.
There are really only so many ways you can arrange a one-bedroom apartment, but when I get that home, I’ll be taking note of these 14 Things Designers Notice the First Time They Enter Your Home.
Do you have this bootie (or one similar) in your shoe arsenal?
WOOHOO! New arrivals from Stella & Dot are here!
The boots from my Instagram story last night are still on sale at Macy’s for under $100! I’ve discovered that I need wide-calf boots and these could not fit/ feel better than they do!
Have a great weekend! Let me know what you’re getting up to!
