Weekend Links

by Brooke Kiernan McCallion

Weekend READY! I plan on putting up a little Halloween decor outside (I LOVE Halloween), eating pizza from La Morra (a mobile pizzeria!), going to the gym (hi steam room), and going on many walks with Charlie (#nug).

The photo above is from a new favorite account @californiaweekend! Those gorgeous homes on the hills are in small cities called Tiburon and Belvedere, which are located directly across the Bay from San Francisco. It's such a dreamy place to live and you can catch the ferry into SF all day everyday! Goals for sure.


• Can't wait to make these toasted quinoa, dried fig, dark chocolate, nut-free granola bars!

• I've been trying to learn this choreography all week lol the girl in the purple pants SLAYS!

• HOW TO: clean your cashmere and keep your houseplants alive!

Michelle Obama on the cover of T Mag is unbelievably beautiful, classy, chic, etc. Capricorn goals <3333333

• Wait... this Gmail hack is so cool. It lets you know if your email is too long, negative, readable, etc.


• Velvet obsessed: Sneaksjumpsuit, shirt dress, and camisole!

• Love this Susana Monaco dress. Her fabric is amazing and lasts for years.

• Perfect black block heels for the holidaze. Block heels are soooo comfy.

Studded loafers for under $50!! Avail here and here.

• Topshop jeans FTW (and for $70-80). Cropped denim in dark blue and black!

PS: I added lots of pretty things to The Shop!

Today is the last day to shop Loeffler Randall at 25% off! No need to explain my <3 for this brand and all their pretty shoes, bags, design, art direction, photography, etc! Here's a list of my current faves:

• These platform oxfords might be my #1!
Ankle tie heels that would be beautiful for any age (and occasion)!
Tassel clogs to wear with relaxed denim and a chunky cream sweater.
• How cute is this little bucket bag?!
• Out. of. control. OTK boots.
• I think LF's cheetah print is the best in the biz!
• Obsessed with this tote in every color.

3 Super Bras

by Brooke Kiernan McCallion

In August, I FINALLY upgraded my personal bra department and it has been the biggest and best improvement! I boycotted all my "real" bras for years and kept wearing these little mesh bras from American Apparel. Comfortable? Yes. Supportive? Nope! So when Nordstrom held their half yearly sale, I decided it was TIME! And bought three SUPER bras.

Super useful: Natori Feathers Underwire Contour Bra, $68
I bought the Natori Feathers Bra in two colors since it comes highly recommended by friends, and has over 1k reviews! Verdict: LOVE IT! Such a great bra for under t-shirts and tops and really does contour to your body well.

Super pretty: Halo Lace Soft Cup Bralette, $30
Since I love bras that don't feel like real bras, I knew I had to get one to replace my lacy American Apparel ones. This bra by Halo is SO pretty and comfy. I wish I had a bikini top that looked like this! The deep V comes in handy for low cut tops.

Super comfortable: Seamless Day Bra, $19
This bra is hands down the MOST COMFORTABLE bra I've ever worn! It's sooo soft and I love wearing it around the house. I definitely want to get 2-3 more since it's only $19!

Sweaters Forever

by Brooke Kiernan McCallion

I've been grabbing the same two sweaters in my closet and realize that's not going to cut it for the next 6 months! After living in Vermont, I've gone through many cheap sweaters that only last a season... so I am looking to inve$t. I'm always so happy to pull out a good staple that I've had for years (shoutout to my 5 y/o J.Crew puffy).

I love the look of chunky rib knit (this one), soft cozy cashmere (this one), and bell sleeves (this one). When it comes to investing on a budget, I find steals on Nordstrom Rack and The Outnet. Say hello to this Helmet Lang beauty!!

PS: After posting, I realize that pretty wine-colored Rebecca Minkoff sweater is sold out on Shopbop. However, I found it in navy here and LOVE IT!

Life Lately

by Brooke Kiernan McCallion

^^^ #EVACUATING to Logan's grandparent's house with the tiny bby angel! He's so good in his crate in the car and @home! It's his lil room. ^^^

^^^ The weather in upstate SC was so nice and fall-y! We went on many squad walks. PS: don't mind the 20+ baggies I took from the dog park upon departure :| hahaha ^^^


^^^ This is when anxiety was *almost* at an all-time high. We evacuated on Wednesday and anticipated the storm that hit Saturday morning! TOO much time to think about it o_O ^^^

^^^ My street lol this is when my anxiety was at its PEAK! You can't see it, but a fire hydrant is completely underwater by the stop sign :O ^^^

^^^ On Sunday morning, we left at 6 AM to beat traffic and go home! I could not believe my eyes when I saw that all the water had already drained!! Charleston was crisp, cool, sunny and our apartment had no water damage + never lost power!! A MIRACLE HALLELU! Whole Foods even opened up, so we went grocery shopping and I bought these celebratory flowers. ^^^

^^^ Later that day, we went on a bike ride to check out the rest of Charleston. The wind sliced these palm leaves! ^^^

^^^ This HUGE tree blew over! ^^^


^^^ The sunset that night was so pretty and I was incredibly relieved that Charleston wasn't hit as hard as everyone expected. Bless ^^^

^^^ My favorite fit as of late! Old Zara cheetah booties (these are amazing and so similar), Topshop jeans, American Apparel sweater ---> that I'm def getting in another color! I'm wearing a large, but it also comes in a more loose unisex style! ALSO, I need a new mirror. ^^^


^^^ Details ^^^

^^^ Drinks at The Belmont with Annie and Lacey because Annie moved to Nashville last week!!! Noooooo I keep thinking she's on sabbatical and coming back! ^^^

^^^ This weekend was so nice and chill. We got lattes n croissants from Black Tap yesterday, grocery shopped, watched football, went on a 3 mile squad walk and... ^^^

^^^ ...made the most amazing pumpkin bread!!! I followed this recipe and it was better than expected! I always take the loaves out of their pans right when they come out and wrap the bread in foil. That way, the steam is locked it and your bread stays super moist! Logan ate more than half of it last night and is eating it again for breakfast. So good! xx ^^^
