We made it to the end of another week! The weather has been absolutely perfect here this week – I’m definitely trying to get all the patio time that I can. Otherwise, the week has been fairly uneventful – I’m hoping to make it out this weekend to celebrate a friend’s birthday, but that’s the only thing on my agenda. I’ve been feeling extra exhausted recently, so I’m trying to be good about making sure I leave myself plenty of time to rest. My SleepNumber app did compliment me on my improved sleep this morning, so I guess I’m doing something right! It’s just hard when I went to say yes to things but know that I should say no. A constant struggle that I’m always working on.
And with that – on to this week’s favorites!
Okay, this week’s classroom wishlist is one that’s close to my heart, because I went to school with Ms. Hense! It’s so funny to think that people I went to school with are teachers now, but I am certain that she is an excellent one. She says: “I teach First Grade Reading and love providing my students with a diverse classroom library. I strive to provide books that are “windows and mirrors” for my students (so they can see themselves and others represented). It’s also important to me to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere where my kids feel safe and excited to learn.”
You’ve all been so generous with your list-clearing. I know that Ms. Hense appreciates any help you’re able to offer to help her students have a great year.
I actually downloaded Spotify onto my phone so that I could listen to the conversation between Serena Williams and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex in her new podcast Archetypes. I love a conversation about ambition and balance, and loved how real the conversation felt, too. It didn’t feel staged; it really felt like two friends sitting down to chat, and we got to learn a little more about both of them and their lives. Also very excited to listen to the next episode with Mariah Carey, too!
Sadly, I can’t really wear heels – my ankles are too weak and bend inwards really easily – but if I could, I would love these Sarah Flint pumps for fall! The navy suede is so beautiful, I love the rounded toe, and the block heel makes them so easy to dress up or down. A great chic and classic shoe!

I wasn’t kidding when I said I loved things about women and ambition! I thought this was a really great article looking at what ambition and success means to women right now. Sometimes, it doesn’t mean promotion after promotion – it means flexibility and balance. It’s really interesting to think about what we each personally value, and what being successful means to each of us.
J.Crew has an excellent sale on their sale going on right now – if you create a (free!) account, you can get an extra 50% sale items with the code PASSPORT. I especially love this jersey dress, this tie-shoulder maxi, and this tie-back poplin dress.
