Happy Friday, friends! This week has been a busy one. I’m leaving town for 5 nights on Sunday & that has made me feel like I’m running around like crazy getting ready. It’s funny to look back on how much I used to travel before COVID. It really can be very stressful! The perspective after stopping so much has been great. Regardless, I’m excited for a change of scenery & a road trip! Before we head in to the weekend, I wanted to share another edition of The Weekly Lo Down with you all. If you’re new, this is my weekly post where I share random things I’m loving online or that you might have missed on stories, answers to your questions & link requests, weekend deals, discount codes, recent blog posts, & a charitable organization to consider supporting. Let’s jump into it!
The Weekly Lo Down | 10.23.2020
I found this French wine bottle riddling rack & I can’t stop thinking about it. I love the vintage feel! I have no idea where I would put it in our house, but I’m trying to find a spot because I love it so much.
Have you all seen all the rage about this pan online? It’s supposed to be able to replace 8 different ones in your kitchen. I’m thinking we need it to see what all the hype is about! I’d love to know your thoughts if you have it. I also think it would make a great gift!
If you’ve been wanting these sherpa lined lug sole boots, but they are out of your price range, check out this pair! They are an amazing ‘look for less’ option.
I just ordered this henley shirt dress that looks like heaven. I can’t wait for it to come in. I also ordered this sherpa jacket & this oversized hoodie from the same site.
Seriously crushing on this dark floral dress. I think it would be so cute with booties or knee high boots for Thanksgiving!
I told you all I got this new curling iron on Amazon Prime Day. I’ve been loving it so far! I had been using a 1 inch & got a 1.25 inch & have been loving the subtle change. The curls last so long & it heats up super quick.
Have a Fall wedding coming up? This dress is a splurge, but OMG it is stunning. I wish I had an occasion coming up to give me a reason to splurge on it.
Want to get in on the shacket trend? This one is a great price for the brand + quality & it will go with everything! It looks so freaking cozy.
ICYMI on stories & need a new mositurizer, I’ve been using this one AM & PM for a few weeks & it is so so good. It hydrates & smooths your skin out so it acts like a makeup primer, too! I love anything that helps me skip a step.
I am dying over this denim dress! I wish I would have found it sooner. It’s adorable & I can’t believe it’s under $100!
Small office desk
A good trick that I’ve used is to search for console tables. I just switched out my old ‘desk’ for this one & it works great. Especially when I just use my laptop on it. I also think this desk or this desk are great WFH options! For more WFH desks & essentials, see this post.
Affordable work clothes. WFH & office
I always look at this site for good work staples! Everything is 50% off right now, too.
I’ve been wearing this one the most! I also have this one & love it + just got in this one that I need to try on & style!
Ah, adulting is so fun, right? This one is the one we have & it is worth all the hype. I bought it as a gift to myself last year! Cordless is key & all the different attachments make it so functional for so many different jobs.
Christmas gifts for a Dad who has everything!
I would usually suggest some sort of experience over a material gift! However, I know that can be tricky with COVID. Check out my gift guides broken down into SO many categories that will hopefully help you find something he doesn’t have or at least could use an upgrade on.
Outdoor furniture // Outdoor dining chairs // A heat lamp
You can see all of our outdoor furniture in our patio reveal. I also love this dining table, this outdoor set. I like this dining chair or these dining chairs, too. This outdoor heater seems to be the best bang for your buck. Now I’m thinking I need to order some for our patio! We also have this fire pit & love it.
Dress for a work event
When in doubt, I always go for a classic black dress. I like these options: one // two // three
Your watch bands
I have this leopard one, this chain one, & also just got this one & this one in.
Closet storage! Sharing with a boy for the first time- need to organize
You got this, gf! I have some of what I use here in my cloffice reveal, but also check here for tons of organization pieces. Slimline hangers are a must to save space & make everything look more uniform & neat!
Nonfiction books you recommend that are towards Psychology?
I am a huge fan of any sort of ‘self help’ book that helps me make improvements in my daily life! These are all sort of Psychology based because they involve personal growth & change. I have some recent recommendations here & here + will work on an updated post for this season. I am currently reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Since it is October, which is breast cancer awareness month, I wanted to share the Breast Cancer Research Foundation as this week’s charitable cause to consider supporting. Breast cancer has affected so many people & families. It’s such a horrible thing & I know that the BCRF does so much to help further what we know about it so we can prevent, respond earlier, & have better treatments when someone is diagnosed.
I hope you all enjoyed this week’s edition of The Weekly Lo Down. Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope it’s wonderful! I am headed to Austin on Sunday & then am doing a road trip to West Texas for a few nights next week. I’m going to Marfa & Big Bend! I can’t wait. Send any recs you have my way! XO
Have a great trip! You deserve the time off! ❤️✨
