Another week has flown by! We have date night tonight at a fav Italian spot & then tomorrow evening we have an engagement party to attend. A nice mix of down time & safely socializing. Before we jump into the weekend, it’s of course time for another edition of The Weekly Lo Down. This is the weekly post I put together to share my favorite online finds from the week, answers to your questions or link requests, weekend deals, discount codes, recent blog posts, & a charitable cause to consider supporting. Kinda everything! It’s so fun to put together & you all have said it’s a great resource, so let’s get into it.
The Weekly Lo Down | 10.09.2020
I have been living in this under $35 loungewear set. The quality is amazing & it comes in several colors. I got a size Small.
Oh, hello perfect cold shoulder sweater. Need this!
I shared on stories that I already ordered some Christmas Decor! With all the shipping delays this year, I figured better safe than sorry. You all wanted links to what I got so I rounded everything up here.
If you need some new cute date night ideas– check out my Fall bucket list or 10 Fun Quarantine Date Night Ideas. We recently had an outdoor picnic by the lake (with this cute picnic basket) & it was so fun to switch it up!
My new office chair finally gets delivered next week! I’m so excited I could cry.
Affordable teacher work clothes/shoes.
This sweater would be amazing for a teacher! So versatile & so many colors. Also love this cardigan or this blazer. You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of flats or I these booties look so comfy. I also have tons of great pieces linked up in my LTK if you need more!
Styling leather joggers? Thanks!
How to style a bookcase with links.
I will 100% work on a blog post about this! We have two of these bookshelves on either side of our TV. My advice is to buy a ton of decor + books you like to start with. You can return what you don’t end up needing, but I find it’s best to start with a good amount of stuff & work to balance them out! 1 item on some shelves 2 items spaced on others. I will literally help with virtual styling if you want, but I’ll work on a post/video about this ASAP.
So random, but a tie dye PJ set. I need one for a bachelorette weekend.
Cropped non-turtleneck sweater!
All home decor! Adirondack chairs/Patio furniture.
I have tons of home decor by room under my ‘home‘ tab on the blog. You can also follow my home account @alo_abode for more inspo. For patio furniture, see this post! We have some Adirondack chairs I linked in there that we love.
Foundation & eyeliner suggestions please!
I use this foundation the most. I also sometimes will use this one or this one! I really like using darker eyeshadows (like from this palette or this palette) as eyeliner. If I’m going liquid though, this one is my go to.
Tan/brown booties under $100.
Black booties to wear with black jeans for going out. Dressy & comfortable.

Share the Love
This week I am so proud to share Brookwood. This is such a special place, y’all. One of my good friends from college (who actually lives on the next street over from me. We were also neighbors in our sorority house, so it’s so fun!) has two brothers who have Autism Spectrum Disorders. As you all may or may not know/remember, I worked with children with ASD for almost ten years as a School Psychologist. This community provides work opportunities & living opportunities for adults with disabilities. Truly, if organizations like this did not exist some of these young adults would not be able to live without their families taking care of them full time. It teaches so many amazing skills & gives these incredible individuals an opportunity to love their jobs, be self-sufficient, & feel successful. I cannot say enough good things!! If you all are interested in supporting (EVERY bit helps) you can do so HERE.
Thank you so much for reading another edition of The Weekly Lo Down. I hope it was helpful! Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope it’s fun, safe, & relaxing. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way! XO
