I don’t think the jumpsuit trend will ever end for me. It’s just too easy. Even when it goes back to just being for babies and little kids, I’ll still be here, wearing my jumpsuits, being more comfortable than you. Yes, it makes using the restroom more of a chore, especially if I have a jacket on, but I think the all day comfort wins. I don’t even rush to change into my sweats when I get home if I’m wearing a jumpsuit because it already feels like I’m in them. It’s genius, really.

And these platform sandals are everything to me and I’ve owned them for les than 48 hours. I wasn’t sure if they were silly or cute, but at this point, I don’t even care because I get the height of heels and the comfort of flats and they are everything I didn’t know I needed and now I don’t want to take them off. Also, I feel like a Spice Girl. You know they were all about the platforms.

So that’s my life right now.

Oh, and we got a puppy. Scroll to the bottom to see the cutest little girl ever!

Meet Phoebe. The sweetest, tiniest Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. And yes, I have to look up the spelling to both of those every. damn. time. But she’s worth it.

Guys, she’s two pounds. That’s how much butter goes into one frosting recipe. How much do you want to cry right now at this tiny two pound puppy that only wants to give you kisses? So much, right?

There are several reasons why I love Sundays. One of the biggest reasons are weekly flea markets. I cannot think of a better way to spend a hangover Sunday than perusing what is basically a giant thrift store. I love the handmade treasures, the antiques that you only thought exsisted on eBay, and of course, the clothing. Oh the clothing. It is hipster heaven; I have never seen so many perfectly frayed, high waist denim shorts in my life. And I bought a pair for $15. A pair identical to those sold in stores for upwords of $50.

If you are looking for anything for your home, I recommend checking out your local flea market first. Even if you don’t think your asthetic includes rustic, paint chipped night stand, just wait until you ultimately find the perfect, unique piece. We got a night stand this weekend and I am excited to find more treasures for our new home together.

Can I get a high five for finding this gem of a Free People dress at Crossroads? Sure it has loose threading and the bottom gets caught on the zippers of my boots, but its Free People and so worth it. It is probably more of a winter dress, but I had to wear soon after I found it. I am hoping to squeeze a couple more wears out of it before I would be getting heat stroke walking around in the Los Angeles heat. Also, I cannot say that I won’t rule out cranking up the air conditioner and just wearing it at home.

Also, new bag!

Ugly Mug was so impressed by the Melrose Trading Post that he wants to go every Sunday. That is a Sunday routine that I can definitely get behind. I would also like to take up the practice of brunching. Yes, it is just a fancy way to say that you slept in and have decided to eat a hearty breakfast at lunch time, but it is just the right amount of pretentious that I could use in my life.

Do you have weekend traditions?
