Monday Morning: December 5, 2023

Dec 5, 2023

This weekend, I got two hours to myself for the first time in months. Really to myself. My child was asleep. My dogs were asleep. Kyle was off playing cards with his friends. My house was clean, and there was nothing else to do but sit in my bed and scroll Instagram. It was glorious. Here’s what I found.

I love this Staud sweater the second I saw it.  It’s bold.  It’s fun.  It’s colorful.  It reminds me of something Atlantic-Pacific would wear.  I couldn’t find a similar option for less, but if you just want a sweater with bold color, try this one.

These magazine shelves fall into the category of things “Pinterest made me buy.”  I love the look of them.  I may use them to store small children’s books or I may put them in my office to corral old issues of magazines that I’ve saved.  Either way, they’re great.

I am on the hunt for a casual scarf, something that I can wear one a sweater solo or with a puffer vest.  This boucle one from Anthropology is my first choice.  I love the giant size.  I saw it in the store and it’s very soft.  And it comes in a nice selection of colors.

This velvet blazer from Mango is perfect for the holidays.  If you need some tips for how to style it, I went looking on Pinterest.  I particularly like it over a graphic tee.  For a fancier look, it would look great over a satin slip dress.

My handbag collection falls firmly into the <$750 range.  I’ve never been able to carry expensive purses because I worry about damaging them every time they leave the house.  But this Mulberry Pimlico is very tempting.  Simple, classic, with a little something extra.  For a more affordable alternative, I will probably be buying the Demellier Vancouver.  I ordered one a while back and it arrived damaged, but it may be time to try again.

    A Mulberry is my dream, someday, maybe bag. They have an outlet in Sommerset England and I keep telling myself that if I make it to sommerset, then I’ll bring home a Mulberry with me. So beautiful and timeless.

    That handbag is gorrrrgeous! I am so ready to splurge but, sadly, my finances are not! Please keep sharing these pieces, though… it’s a fun dream 🙂 And I’ll happily keep clicking and get you an extra 2 cents each time!

      Sadly, the blog no longer earns money off clicks. All the affiliates switched over to a purchase model a few years ago. Ah, the good old days.
