The Weekly Lo Down | 08.28.20

The last week or two I have been re-quarantining at home along in preparation for this weekend! My best friend’s bachelorette party is this weekend & while we were originally supposed to go to Cabo, we are switching it up to keep it safe & going to a house on the lake in Austin. All of the 14 (!!) girls going agreed to quarantine for almost two weeks before so that we could make the trip as safe as possible. The one girl who had to fly in even did so early so she could quarantine! We aren’t leaving the house all weekend (& it’s amazing so no need) & I am beyond excited! I couldn’t leave you all hanging without this week’s edition of The Weekly Lo Down even though I am technically ‘out of office’ right now. But, let’s be honest– I never really am! If you’re new, this is the weekly post I share each Friday where I round up my favorite finds from the week + requests from you all, share weekend deals, compile all my discount codes in one place, share this week’s blog posts, & a charitable cause. Let’s jump into it!

The Weekly Lo Down | 08.28.20

I keep forgetting to wear my blue light blocking glasses & end up with headaches, so I ordered a blue light blocker for my computer screen & one for my phone. Will keep you posted on if it helps!

I got this pearl chain in & love it. It works for sunnies or masks! For cute face masks, see this post.

I shared this berry colander on my story last weekend. It’s adorable, functional, & is such a random thing that makes me smile!

I shared this sweater romper on stories earlier this week that is perfect for lounging around or would be so cute with booties + a flannel tied around your waist. Seriously obsessed!

If you haven’t jumped on the SKIMS bandwagon yet, y’all. I can’t get enough. This is THE best bra.

Questions/Link Requests:

What duvet insert do you use? They look so plush & full.

The trick is actually to use two! We use two of these. You can shop everything in our bedrooms here (master) & here (guest room).

Knit tops.

I like this for a tank option & this one or this one for options with sleeves.

Date Night Dresses.

I love this one, this one, or this one is super versatile & can go from day to night! Would love it paired with a belt.

Black Outfits for Bachelorette Party.

So fun! I love this jumpsuit, this romper, this cute dress or this versatile LBD. Check here for more ideas on what to wear to a bachelorette party.

More Info on the Whole 30. Plan you Followed, Recipes, Thoughts Afterwards. 

I have completed over ten Whole 30s. I usually do one every January & August. I adjust my specific start & end dates just based on what I have going on at the time. You can read my first post on it & what led me to it here. I follow the Whole 30 plan as outlined on their site. I have tons of recipes here on the blog under my Whole 30 tag or I love to make recipes from The Defined Dish or that I find on Pinterest. I also love to keep things simple with just fish & veggies!

Where did you get your pop socket & phone case?

They are both from this site! You can customize my phone case with your initials & choose the colors. Same with the pop socket. I love both!


I just ordered this one & it’s so cute. Also love this one & this one.

What are your favorite neutral lipsticks?

I have this one in three shades. I love it because it isn’t drying at all. I recommend trying the color Salt Lyfe! Also, this lipstick in the shade Pillow Talk is the most universally flattering neutral pink. I love it so much!

Where do you find all the art prints in your house for your gallery walls?

I find SO many of them on Society 6. I also take a ton myself. I also just got some in from Poster Store. I’m working on getting a discount code from both sites for you all so stay tuned. If you want more info on how to create a gallery wall. Check out this post.

The tan Free People sweater that I wanted sold out on the Nordstrom Sale. Any recs for similar ones at a good price point?

Bummer! This one looks soo much like it. I wrote a whole blog post with ‘Looks for Less’ with Amazon finds that look like Nordstrom Sale items if you missed out on something you wanted or if you’re wanting a lower price point. I’ll keep an eye out for restocks, too.

Share the Love

This week I am sharing Cancer Cartel, which was founded by 3 strong, female, cancer survivors who founded a 501c3 non-profit that combines fashion & funding for people fighting cancer.  Cancer Cartel was founded with an important mission to provide financial resources & relief to those fighting cancer. The population of people they have set out to help are in greater need today than ever before. They fund their mission by collecting & reselling donated, luxury fashion items. By creating a “circle economy” in the nonprofit world, & combining that sustainability with philanthropy, they know we have found a niche that people believe in! Additional information can be found on their website & social media platforms: www.cancercartel.com& @cancercartel on Facebook & Instagram.

I hope you all enjoyed The Weekly Lo Down this week! If you ever have requests for things you are shopping for or anything I can include, please reach out! I create these as a resource for you all & want to make sure they are so helpful. Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope you have a great, safe, fun, & restful weekend. XO
