It feels like September is flying by. I can’t believe next week we will be halfway through! Today is obviously a day that brings up so much from the past. I remember being in Ceramics class when I heard about the tragedy of 09/11. I’ve visited the museum in NYC & it is such a powerful, yet so heartbreaking. I highly recommend going if you ever get the chance! Since today is Friday, that means it is time for another edition of The Weekly Lo Down. If you’re new, this is a weekly post that I do featuring things I’m loving on the Internet from the week, answers to your questions, link requests, weekend deals & sales, discount codes, recent blog posts, & a charitable cause.
The Weekly Lo Down | 09.11.2020
I just ordered two of these adorable faux fur pillows to put out on the chairs by our fire pit. I love the neutral color! This site has so much good affordable home decor & accents if you’re in the market.
Every Fall I like to pick out a pair of splurgeworthy booties to add to my collection. I just ordered this pair to try. I also love these for a more affordable ‘splurge’ option.
My best selling sweater romper was restocked in new colors! It is heaven & looks cute with sneakers or booties. I wear a size XS.
Who else has been living in cute hats during quarantine?! I saw this one & can’t stop thinking about it even though it’s way more than I’d typically spend on a hat. I like this one for a more reasonable option.
I’m crushing on these under $100 skinny jeans. They come in 3 washes!
It actually felt like jacket weather in Texas yesterday & I was in heaven. That means it’s time to order a few more to wear, right?! I like this casual one, this faux leather puffer, & this utilitarian one.
A shearling meets denim meet suede hooded jacket?! Sign me up.
I just ordered this new necklace that I can’t wait to get in. This brand has become a go to for me! This one will be perfect for layering with other pieces.
Your midi knuckle rings.
I have a few of these in different colors/sizes. They look great layered together & don’t tarnish! I shower & workout in mine because I never take them off.
The snakeskin booties you shared last weekend that were on sale.
I’m so happy this pair is still available from last year. I LOVE them. I get my true size. They are still over 60% off or you can snag the same bootie in tons of other color options here.
Outfit ideas for a Fall trip to Colorado in Oct.
This sounds incredible! Try this look with a jacket layered over (plaid would be so cute!), this look with any neutral jacket, or this blog post for inspo. I’ll have more fall styled looks coming soon!!
Cute staple sweater that comes in a few colors.
Hands down this one! Under $25 & comes in over 20 colors. I got a size S, but would have grabbed an XS if they had it. You can see how I styled it here.
The duffle bag you posted last weekend.
This one! It comes in 8 colors & is under $100. I love it!
Which self tanner did you say doesn’t smell bad?
I’ve been obsessed with this one. You apply like you would lotion (circular motions is key for no streaks) & then wash your hands after. It gives the most natural, gradual color.
King lightweight comforter & cover neutral colors.
We use this one (actually two of them– a little trick for fullness). We have this duvet that we love. It comes in a few colors. I also like this one & this one.
Your hand weights with a handle.
I love these for the arm workouts I do! I linked up tons of my at home gym equipment for you all to shop or check the ‘Shop‘ page under the blog & home by room. EVERYthing in our home is there & I update it every time I make a new purchase.
What was the stuff you put in your water that makes you more hydrated?
Liquid IV! My discount code is: ALOPROFILE. They have several flavors + individual packets (which I love to be able to keep them accessible). Adding one of these to your water is like drinking three glasses instead of one. I was initially unsure because it has sugar in it, but a friend who is a dietician explained that it actually helps with hydration. Same reason there is sugar in a lot of sports drinks.
What mascara do you use?
I’ve been using this one lately. I switch my mascaras up all the time! I think the primer I use is key + a good lash serum.
Cold Weather date tops/dresses.
I personally love a cute & sexy cami with a moto jacket over it. This top is also so pretty (& you can layer a coat over it) + the back is so cute. I love this dress or this little dress with a jacket over it.
I have this higher neck one that I love. I also have this short sleeve one & this scoop neck one that comes in so many colors. This $10 one is also a fav! I LOVE bodysuits & these are all affordable & great.

Booties I’m Loving: September Edition
Share the Love
I thought today would be a wonderful opportunity to share the 9/11 Memorial & Museum as a cause to donate to. This helps sustain the memorial & museum in NYC. There are so many amazing stories shared in the museum & so many incredible families + first responders honored there. It is a great cause to support & an incredible place to visit if you have the opportunity.
I hope you all enjoyed this week’s edition of The Weekly Lo Down! Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope you have so much fun. I’ll be continuing to decorate around our home for Fall & will be soaking up every second of outside time now that the temps have finally dropped in Texas. If you have any requests or anything I can help you shop for– feel free to reach out as always! XO
Thanks for the links! Have a great weekend! 🙂
