August is truly one of the weirdest months I’ve lived through. Between deciding to move on a whim, selling our house, and buying a new one… woof. I haven’t done much shopping, except for a few summer essentials. I realized at one point that it’s been a long time since I really bought any clothing (especially underwear), so I picked up a few inexpensive, easy dresses from H&M. Also, I read Untamed, which was SO good. So let’s dig into my 9 things of note from the past month!

When I received our new outdoor dining area on the deck, I got loadsss of questions about our lighting!

And of course, I chose a black outdoor sconce… I am so predictable! Our light fixture was gifted by Lamps Plus, but in case it’s not your style, here are a few more chic black outdoor sconces that you might love for your own home!

This post was originally slated to publish last week, but it didn’t feel right to talk about shopping. Don’t get me wrong: there is still a lot of work to be done to support equality. What I am saying is that you can support a movement, continue educating yourself, and speak your mind while also indulging in superfluous ‘fluff,’ like this post about 5 products I enjoyed last month. So let’s dig into May’s 5 things of note, including the True&Co. bralette that I am obsessed with.
