Army Navy

Jo Totes Gracie


Good morning! Hope your weekend was wonderful. I wore this simple little outfit when we went out to go shopping for new bedding on Saturday. So thrilling, right? Haha. It was a windy day, so my hat kept trying to blow right off my head...

yes, that is the word 'love' written on this wall! the things you'll find in brooklyn...

But seriously, back to beds... we'd been using the same ratty comforter that I thrifted at Bedford Salvation Army forever ago. It was always cute, but never quite warm enough, and we always had to layer other blankets. While shopping, we ended up getting a down comforter and duvet cover. (Wow, I have never felt as adult on this blog as just now, when I typed "duvet cover" ... :P) Anyway, have you ever experienced a down comforter? My oh my, it is heaven. Also, I'm looking forward to sporting a new look in the bedroom, with the new clean and modern off white bed cover! Coziest room evar...


Okay, sooo clothing. The lovely people at Choies sent me this wonderful military trench to call my very own! I'm super stoked about it... I've been wanting a coat like this for years! I've always had this problem... I never have enough jackets when the seasons transition- only a few hoodies and a jean jacket. This one is great- it is lightweight, yet I can tell it will keep the chill away. I'm so excited to wear it more as the days get cooler!

Also, I'm foraying into new hat territory here, people. I still do and always will have a special place in my heart for my beloved beanies. However, new styles are just so fun! I have to admit, I was inspired to pick this one up after seeing the same one on Melissa of Bubby and Bean.

I want a bigger variety of hats...
