Change of Plans = Blessing in Disguise

Hello and Happy Monday! It’s been awhile… and for good reason.

If you’re following along with me on Instagram, last week was sort of a weird one for me. After a fun sister weekend in Nashville, the original plan was for me to drive home to South Carolina on Monday, attend the Beyoncé/Jay Z concert Tuesday evening, and fly to Chicago first thing Wednesday morning to work an event for one of my freelance gigs.

I did still drive home and go to the concert (and it was AMAZING by the way), but my work trip was postponed last-minute… so I wound up spending the rest of the week in my childhood home of Little Mountain. On one hand, I was disappointed because you know I love any opportunity to go back to Chicago. But on the other hand, it sort of felt like a divine intervention that plans fell through and I was granted almost a full week to unwind. Mind you I still worked remotely, but I also was fortunate enough to spend a ton of time with my immediate and extended family, savor my favorite local food spots, introduce my parents to Costco (lol), and even have a fun night out with some of my close high school friends.

With a new season rapidly approaching, this trip home felt like my opportunity to hit refresh and recharge for upcoming work and travel. A true blessing in disguise!

And speaking of the new season… Fall is almost here!!! At the risk of sounding basic, it’s my all-time favorite season. I’m so excited to share some more seasonal and transition pieces with y’all – like this jumpsuit:


I scored this beauty of a jumpsuit a couple of weeks ago for less than $25 and am loving it as a transitional piece to wear now and well into the fall (just add a cardigan or bomber jacket). The material is soft and comfy with a good bit of stretch. I LOVE the colorful crane pattern and also it has pockets which, as we all know, is critical.

I ordered a medium based on the size chart and it fits perfectly. I will warn you that it typically takes a little longer to receive your items when ordering from this site, but I’ve always had amazing luck on everything from tops, to dresses, to bathing suits. My earrings are from Baublebar (these are similar!) and my booties are oldies but goodies by Lucky Brand.

Here’s to a new week, a new season, and going with the flow!
