Happy Friday, you guys! What are your weekend plans? As of right now, I don’t have any and I sort of love it. Now that I’m back up on my feet more and more, I’ve been getting tired really easily. Usually around 6 pm, I am ready to lay down and go to bed! I guess that’s what happens when you’re totally inactive for 14 weeks. I’m just embracing it though. I’ve never been a good sleeper, so the fact that I’m able to sleep a lot and often now is great.

Here are a few of my favorite reads of the week:

the friday edit. pink velvet mules, embroidered graphic tee, new herbivore botanicals toner, rachel comey earrings.

Happy Friday, you guys! In case you missed my update on Instagram Stories, I finally have good news about my leg. I saw my doctor 2 days ago and he’s really happy with the results from last Friday’s small surgery. The gap between the broken bits has closed more and it’s definitely looking way more promising in there. And here’s the best news: I don’t need to wear the clunky, heavy boot around anymore! I’m beyond thrilled about that. It’s still hurts a bit to put weight on my leg, but my mobility is improving more and more each day. It finally feels like some progress is being made in my healing and I couldn’t be happier.

Here’s some stuff I’ve been eyeing lately…

Velvet is still a huge trend, so I’m kind obsessed with these pink suede mules.

I’m happiest in a tee, especially one with a sassy message. This one says You Little Shit and I love it.

I pretty much love anything from Herbivore Botanicals, so I’m stoked to try the new Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner.

This bag. OMG.

I desperately want these statement earrings.

Have a great weekend!

the friday edit. block printed pillows, floral wrap dress, mini white pitcher, and more on jojotastic.com

Happy Friday, you guys! I really feel like I’m in the home stretch of healing my broken leg. Next week I’ll see my orthopedic doctor again and get another set of x-rays, hopefully showing that I can stop wearing my boot completely. I’m still working on that whole ‘walking’ thing, but each day I make more and more progress.

Here’s some stuff that is inspiring me lately…

Block Shop makes some of the most gorgeous textiles I’ve ever seen. Loving the Sunrise Black Pillow and Magnet Indigo Pillow a LOT.

Wrap dresses feel effortless and romantic these days. Loving the flattering silhouette and print on this Alice + Olivia dress.

The most perfect little cream pitcher ever.

I’ve been on the hunt for easy summer tops to wear with my trusty cut offs. Loving this gingham top so much.

Without being aware of it, I have run out of my Aesop balm, so I’m eyeing a new one in Reverence Aromatique.

SO sad that these mustard flats are on backorder. I desperately want them for when I can wear cute shoes again!

My pals Turntable Kitchen turned me onto these amazing candles and I’m positively obsessed.

Have a great weekend!

Happy summer, you guys! I’ve heard in other parts of the country it is actually summer… but in Seattle warm days are sort of new to us this week. They’ve finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier about absorbing some extra rays and working on my freckle collection. This week brought about a few updates with my broken leg situation, specifically that I can finally start bearing some weight on the leg and can begin physical therapy. I’ve heard that this will be the hardest part, but honestly I’m just glad to finally feel like I have some control over the matter. I still have a lot of healing ahead of me, but it feels good to know I’m on track.

Here’s some stuff that is inspiring me lately…

Wow, it’s been a while since I did one of these! Admittedly, by the time Friday rolls around, I’m exhausted. The business of healing a broken leg has been quite tiring and, being totally honest, I’m feeling rather uninspired lately. It’s tough to do photoshoots which means that sharing really awesome unique content with you guys is hard to do. Round ups sort of feel ‘pat’ if ya know what I mean, but for the moment, it’s the best I can do. I’m getting better though and my mobility has improved, so I’m hoping to share some really good stuff with you guys in the next few weeks (ahem, the bedroom makeover reveal… finally???). Thanks so much for bearing with me as I get my shit together.

I also wanted to thank you guys so much for your feedback in the 2017 survey! Here are some results: Continue reading “the friday edit + reader survey results!”
