^ Mitch and I ran downtown yesterday and had lunch while the girls were in school!
Similar Boots here, here and here. I also just got this pair from Boden and ADORE them! / Newer Plaid Coat (Also love this similar houndstooth blazer jacket, and this one, too. Also look into the Belted Lady Day Coat, the Double-Breasted Topcoat, the Tie-Waist Blazer Jacket (SO PRETTY!), and the Daphne Topcoat.) / Goyard Tote / Barbour Umbrella / Newer Sweater
LAST DAY OF RAIN! I feel like we spent the entire week in the car, driving the kids all over the city. Which honestly was kind of fun; it reminded me a little bit of One Fine Day with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer. (Omg. Just looked it up and she was wearing a trench coat, too. I thankfully didn’t end up in a dinosaur t-shirt, though. 😉)
We have a crazy busy + fun weekend ahead of us! Here’s what’s going on:
Friday: Emma’s Halloween parade (she’s being Annie! 😭), birthday party for Lottie (Lucy’s bestie!) at Bradley and Peter’s
Saturday: Neighborhood Halloween party, playdate with new friends from school, visit from in-laws, and a late-night “drive-by” hangout with Jess and Neal at their place because we haven’t seen them in forever (YAY!)
Sunday: Pizza at our friend Alex’s house and then trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with our friends Gretchen, James, Dave, Natalie, Nicki, JR, Ellen and Nik—and all their respective children. ;)
I’m going to go ahead and say that by Sunday night, Mitch and I will be collapsed on the couch… and the likelihood that everyone gets to school on time on Monday is LOW. 😆 (We’ve been so good this year—they haven’t been late once!—but this is definitely going to be the first, haha.)
Anyway, wish us luck—and if you have a similar schedule, god speed.
Here are this week’s “recent finds”:
PRETTY sure I’m going to buy this; it’s my absolute favorite flannel, now available in a light gray buffalo check. SWOON. I prefer my Faherty shirts in a size small for a slightly oversized look, in case that helps with sizing! Order your normal size if you like that look, or go one size down if you’d prefer a more fitted appearance.
My Burberry rainboots are back! I’ve had mine for years and I know I’ll own them forever. They’re great for days when you want to look a little nicer but it’s pouring! I also recommend Blondo waterproof boots.
