10 Things I Love Sunday

Hi! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! This is the time of year that kicks my ass in terms of seasonal blues, so I am glad I have a lot of projects going on to keep me busy and inspired!

1. I ordered a set of these for Nova’s bedroom. They are so creative and I love that they are handmade!

2. I just got this sweatshirt and it’s so comfy.

3. These are the best Easter baskets.

4. I’m so happy when I find our girls a cool band tee—and this Daniel Johnston tee is so cute for Marigold!

5. This coffee mug is SO cute!

6. Cute pastel hair clips (my kids think they are toys!)

7. You know what is fun to shop for on Etsy? Sage smudge bundles (like white sage with rose petals and cedar and white sage). I’ve been collecting some in anticipation of our upcoming move.

8. Rainbow Vans for kiddos! I’m still getting used to how often our kids need new clothing and shoes (ughhhh)—but oh well, I will gladly order these for spring/summer because *rainbows*.

9. This is for sure my favorite sustainable dress brand. I’d love to hear suggestions for other sustainable brands. I have struggled a bit to find brands that align with my style. Let me know if you have any favorites!

10. I’m in love with this vintage rug, but I don’t need it so maybe you do?

P.S. I recently posted Marigold’s adoption story. 🙂

  • Found this site when following Emma Watson on IG and it is so useful for finding sustainable clothing:


    LOVE those rainbow vans….might have to get those for my girls!

  • Hey! The Root Collective is a sustainable brand that sells shoes made in Guatemala (they’re fair trade) and I actually think both you and Emma would love them—they’re unique and seem like each of your styles.

    Here’s the website:


  • The Cut had a great article all about sustainable fashion and brands:

    And here’s a link to a google doc of a list of sustainable brands:

  • I’m sure you meant no harm by this and probably weren’t aware of it, but smudging with white sage as a non-indigenous person is problematic. This article explains why:


    • thanks for this dana!!
      i also battle the seasonal blues but am loving that it finally feels like winter. nothing beats snow days, fresh fluffy snow, sledding, icicles! like nature, i try to use this season to refresh and hiking/these other free self care habits do just that: https://tps-steph.blogspot.com/2019/05/0037-25-ways-to-treat-yo-self.html

  • Hi Elsie! Have you tried Christy Dawn for dresses? They have a pretty wide selection and are all made from fabric scraps. Plus they ship in a cute wooden box!

  • I was just shopping for outdoor rugs and saw Target has some Mickey Mouse designs: https://www.target.com/p/mickey-mouse-friends-chestnut-border-outdoor-rug-black/-/A-79507443?preselect=79423564#lnk=sametab
    Thought of your bnb!
