Happy Friday! + weekly roundup

Happy Friday guys... In short, this week was freaking awesome! I took part in a couple of pretty amazing meetings with incredibly talented friends and cannot wait to share even more exciting news for Chelsea & The City.

If you follow me on social media (Instagram, Twitter & Facebook) then you already know about a little secret I've been hiding away for the right moment. I'm honored to appear in No'Ala Magazine's September issue as one of Huntsville's most stylish. Stay tuned for outtakes and my full interview on Monday!

In the meantime, here's what I loved this week:

Beauty Tips with Jenna Lyons

A longtime wearer of J.Crew, (I even sported the brand head-to-toe in Tuesday's post) I have to admit that I've fallen off the jewel-encrusted, half-tucked wagon lately. By the looks of her moody/minimalist inspiration board, it would seem creative director Jenna Lyons has too. As I evolve into a slightly more bohemian, easy style I've left a few things behind (i.e. statement necklaces and the trademarked "shiny pony" aka the extravagant heel in colorways like leopard and "neon flamingo") but I'll never forsake my beloved Jenna. Her sense of style is second to none and I'm lapping up any and all advice she has to offer. Thank God for this interview with Into The Gloss, now you can revel in secrets whispered only in hushed tones around the J.Crew offices. Whew!

What do you think? Did all of the blogger hype surrounding the brand these last few years kill J.Crew a little bit for you too? I have to admit, I'm still eying a few pieces from their newest crop of Fall must-haves...

Maxi lengths are so easy in the Summer. Although I do love a great pair of shorts, I've been living in long and flowy dresses + skirts lately.... All the better to break into a nursery after-hours and go exploring with my best friend!

I mentioned a while ago that I was dying to start a little terrace garden for our apartment but I'm still just admiring nature from afar. I feel like I may have missed the mark this year. Is it too late to get a few herbs (I've got my heart set on basil, mint and lavender) going?

In other news, it's definitely not too late to shop J.Crew's sale! I didn't intend to step out in head-to-toe "j.crack" this weekend but it happens more often than I care to admit. I can always score great basic pieces on sale and I find myself reaching for them more and more lately.
