Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been enjoying time this week with my good friend, Jenna, while she’s visiting me from Brooklyn. We’ve gone to the ocean, picked fruit and flowers, talked for hours, and I’m looking forward to taking her to more shops around town. I’m also looking forward to doing some cooking! Well, light cooking, mostly making salads and ice cream (we have this simple ice cream maker and it’s great!) since it’s supposed to be 100 degrees this weekend. Have a fun one! See you next week. ♥ xo Jen

Hello! Here we go with another installment of Lovely Things! This roundup seems to be feeling the love for tomato red, hot pink, muted apricot hues, grids, black straw, abstract art, mid-century, and cool vintage babes. And shoes. I really want some new shoes and I’m kind of loving those red booties, but I always end up with practical neutrals for autumn. We’ll see — maybe I’ll go rogue this year! Check out more Lovely Things roundups HERE. ♥
Errrrmaghuuurrrrd. I love this beautiful bar cart. I also have a spot for it. Help.
I just love this lounge-y color story and subtle middle finger from Vogue in 1950.
Aaaaahhhhh! This cubist bookshelf is so dreamy. Love the colors.
Flying saucer? Little black hat? Such a great little incense burner.
This is a pretty good defense of carnations. They can be SO LOVELY.
There’s just something about red suede shoes.
These hand-woven recycled plastic bags are so pretty. The large tote, please!
All of these things, please. I like all the cute new takes on tassel loafers/oxfords lately.

While I was working on my pretty Rose-Tinted Visions sunglasses post, I also bookmarked a bunch of lovely black, brown, and tortoise shades that I love. I’m starting to let the autumn vibes in, so this palette is my pick for when those leaves start to fall. No matter what the hue, I always gravitate to that old movie star glamour and vintage bad boy classics. I might be kind of a nerd, but I think those who wear good shades in any season add a little mystery, intrigue, and swag. I love the color of this brown pair (also, my middle name!) and I think they would look good on fellas, too. I own and love this glamour babe black pair that are 40% off. I wear mine ALL THE TIME. Those are the only ones on major sale, but there is a range of price points in that sea of fanciness. You can click the pics in this new roundup, too! ♥
This little online shop Le Market out of Minneapolis, by Megan Jensen and Lauren McGinty, is so cute. I love their selection of interesting new designs mixed with special vintage items. My current Le Market faves are the Eva Dress (of course, made in PDX by OAM!), the Gal Pal Enamel Pin, this straw basket, the Matisse Visage T-Shirt, the Pink Pleated Bags, the funny Working Girl Socks, and the vintage Encyclopaedia of Type Faces book. More HERE.
Happy Friday, friends! I just want to wish you a happy weekend. I’d intended to do a big Friday links roundup post, but got so caught up in the Democratic convention (AMAZINGLY GOOD, like 100% crying for 4 days and feeling all the feelings) and some much needed self-care (I dislocating a rib trying to lift things much too heavy for me to ever be able to lift!!! OUCH.) that time got away from me. There are lots more fun posts coming next week and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. You are amazing. xo Jen ♥
