We had a friend in town for the long weekend and one of the highlights of the weekend was having brunch at Reynard at The Wythe Hotel. I had been wanting to go here for awhile and it definitely lived up to my expectations. Not only is it beautiful, the food is amazingly delicious. I am officially hooked.

Can we talk about how amazing the Loeffler Randall new arrivals are?! I now own more of their shoes than I'd care to admit and highly anticipate each season's debut. Their spring collection definitely does not disappoint. My favorites are the Rooney Fisherman Sandal and the Skye Gladiator Sandal (I saw both of these on instagram awhile back and have been dreaming of them since!). And I can personally attest to how amazing the quality of their shoes are - totally worth the investment!
I've come across this quote by Ira Glass before, but lately I keep coming back to it. If any of you reading are also creatives, I'm sure you've wrestled with the above issue. It's been on my mind a lot lately as I work through some freelance work and simultaneously try to better myself as a designer. I often have a hard time getting to work because I feel like nothing I create will be as good as a I envision or want it to be. Such is a perfectionist's life. I'm making a pact with myself to remind myself of this everyday and encourage me to do more work, no matter how bad or good it is. It's so important to remind yourself that no one woke up being amazing. Behind their seemingly perfect work is tons of failed pieces, tons of bad solutions. So keep your head down, stop the comparisons and just do you.
ONE / Even though I'm mildly afraid of burning candles, I'm eyeing this pretty rose gold champagne candle (mostly for decorative purposes, not burning purposes).
TWO / The new spring collection from Warby Parker is full of great styles like these Kimball frames.
THREE / Lately I've been loving having my nails painted an opaque nude and I'm curious about this RGB shade after hearing good things.
FOUR / I've been trying to find a good cardigan (a very hard task) and love this colorblocked cashmere option.
FIVE / Nothing better than a slouchy boyfriend sweatshirt. Especially in gray.
SIX / I love the edge these flats would add to a basic outfit.
SEVEN / I've heard awesome things about Frame denim and am anxious to try a pair.
EIGHT / I was recently introduced to Far & Wide Collective and love their woven baskets.
