Weekly Rounds Vol. 43

Ah Friday, I’m so happy you’re here!ribbon-tie heelsAside from the insomnia I’ve been experiencing these past few weeks (if you have any remedies/suggestions, send them my way!), this week was really, really good. My to-do list is dwindling and I did even more purging, if you can believe it.

I don’t have much on the agenda this weekend, so I’m just going to see where it takes me 🙂


  • From as far back as I can remember, I’ve always been fascinated by all things money, so it should come as no surprise that I’ve been binging on this Money Diaries column.
  • “I want to be fearless in work, life and in love because, my god, time is flying by and I don’t have a second to waste.” Beauty Bets‘ take on being brave was such an important reminder for me.
  • I have a Marysia gift card burning a hole in my pocket and I’m thinking of pulling the trigger on this Palm Springs Tie Top (in white) and the Antibes Bikini Bottoms (in rose). What do you think of mixing and matching the colors?
  • Truer words have never been spoken. I have two siblings who are in high school (and one in grade school!) and I’m always astonished at how much faster they seem to be maturing. Thinking back to when I was their age, awkward would be an understatement.
  • Bows on my toes, please! These are so darling.
  • For all my Kansas Citians…it’s Red Friday! If you’re looking for something to cheer on the Chiefs in, localE. has so many unique pieces! I’ll be wearing this sweater to my workout later this evening.
  • This song has been on repeat all week. And this one, too!
  • On the blog: My favorite purchases of 2016 and a little blue dress.

Have a great weekend, friends! I’ll see you back here next week.

I originally shared these heels in this outfit post.

    Ah, I’m glad you reminded me! I still need to get on localE still and order a new shirt. Since I ruined the beautiful one you gave me last year. I loved that one so much! As for the insomnia, it runs in our family on this side. I wish I had a magic cure, but no such luck. Reading sometimes helps, but then I personally end up like Grandma, and find an amazing book I can’t put down. This leads to me reading through the whole night, so maybe that’s NOT such a great idea after all. 🙁 Love you! Hope you have a great weekend, sweetheart!

    I love mixing and matching swimsuit pieces. It’s fun! Now if only I could get rid of the damage my 2 kids did on my body and wear a bikini again!!

      Thank ya! I’m so glad that you love them because I really like putting it together 🙂 I think you deserve a little getaway…and a new bikini!

    Hey sorry to hear about your insomnia. I work shift work since I work in the ER and it can really mess up my sleep cycle. I’ve found that melatonin about an hour before I want to sleep plus making sure that I don’t look at any screens (tv, phone, etc) also about an hour before bed helps. I do drink tea and try to read a book to put me into “sleep mode” though. Try just changing up some pre bed habits to see if it will help. Good luck!

      I can imagine that it would! I’ve steered clear of melatonin because I’ve heard it can give you some crazy dreams and I already get those all on my own! I really think that eliminating the screen before bed will help me, so I’m going to give that a try tonight thanks to you 🙂
