Friday links 6/14/19

It’s been a HOT minute since I’ve done a set of “links I am loving” on this site. They honestly have always been one of my favorite posts that bloggers write and were one of the reasons I really wanted to start a blog! I may not have the creative juices or energy to produce content every living minute, or week with my past semester schedule, but I can more than happily share what I have been loving browsing at via others!

{one} The most fun and flirty LWD for all your summer needs.

{two} Just maybe the sweetest music video of all time by Us The Duo. Their baby girl is absolutely precious and this song is one of my all time favorites, so hearing their rendition is just perfect.

{three} I have loved Outdoor Voices for awhile now and own two pairs of their leggings that QUICKLY took over the spot of favorite in my closet. This pair of color block ones may be next on my list. If you haven’t tried out OV yet I highly recommend. Their leggings, in my opinion, are far more breathable, durable, and better fitting than any others I’ve ever owned…even beating out my previous favorite ‘wunder unders’ from Lululemon which is saying a lot!

{four} This post by Cupcakes & Cashmere had me adding far too many things to my mental cart. 10 things worth buying that will change your life…? Okay, fine, sold!

{five} I’ve been TRYING to get into meditation for, I don’t know, years. It’s all the rage for mental health right now and with my mind going a million miles a minute just about 24/7, I probably should try a bit harder. However, no matter what I do…it’s just NEVER something I am able to find myself loving! I have tried everything from the well rated Headspace app to aromatherapy to literally forcing myself to sit in quiet…I am still on the search for tips so leave a comment below if you have any! Until then, this article from The Everygirl on meditation for skeptics is my help.

That’s all for this week! Tune in next for more things I have been loving!
xoxo , Ally

{one} incase you haven’t already been made aware, it’s officially holiday season at Starbucks and ya girl has been waiting ALLL year long for the return of Snickerdoodle Hot Chocolate. I’ve linked a list of all the menu items just so you can make aware of what you wanna sip on while listening to your Christmas music

{two} If you didn’t already catch up, my entire St. Louis recap is now up on the blog! Make sure to check out PART 1 and PART 2 !!!

{three} Evelyn Henson will forever be one of my favorite artists and her newest HOLIDAY greeting cards hit her shop the other day and they’re seriously TOO darling and I want every single one! Specifically eyeing this cutie!

{four} J.Crew is having 40% off with code “BOO” right now and I mayyyy have to use that as an excuse to snag this fleece!

{five} After Brenna and I made a pit stop at the tea house in STL, I’ve been dying to find some teas to make in my room in Kansas! Shoot me an email or drop a comment on this post with any good loose leaf tea brands!

{six} I had to update my phone to the newest iOS after it was freaking out on me earlier this week, BUT there are SOO many new emojis involved in the update! Hello, meet your newest most frequent user of that bagel emoji!

{seven} One of my favorite things in the blog world is getting to watch bloggers I’ve loved forever team up with brands I’ve loved forever. Julia from Lemon Stripes will FOREVER be one of my favorite gals to catch up on, and her daughter Amalia is the stinkin’ cutest as well. She recently collaborated with Dudley Stephens to make an ice blue version of their pieces and I am OBSESSED.

{eight} I don’t even have words to explain how badly I want this.

{nine} I’ve started to be super interested in the faux leather pants trend that was popular last year but looks like is gonna stick around for this year too and these Free People pants (UNDER $40 RIGHT NOW) may be the perfect way for me to try it out…thoughts?

{ten} It’s Dad’s Weekend for AXO here at KU and I am SO excited to get to hang out with my dad! There will be plenty to catch up on via the Instagram stories so make sure to follow over at @xoxoallisonnicole to follow along!

Until next time, xoxo, Ally

Happy Friday once again my friends! March is speeding on by and bringing me a bunch of good weather and even better outfit inspo! (Isn’t that what it’s all about anyways?!)

1// Starting off with a shameless self promo of a blog post from Monday that I am still implementing into my brain every single second. Stop waiting to be your best self. Yeah, I’m talking to you!

2// With my family in Sanibel island in Florida (yeah they left me here, yeah I’m not over it) and Carly venturing through Bermuda I have been having major island fever. But seriously, I’m dying over the blue and white look she sported here.

3// IN LOVE with these Sam&Libby sandals. The pink ones are 100% on my spring break shopping list…Target you never fail me.

4// Yet another spring break lust list item…

5// I need these donuts in my mouth right now immediately. Not to mention lemon/blueberry is potentially my favorite flavor combo of all time.

6// It’s March but we all still need the boost…

Until next time, xoxo, Ally
