10 Things I Love Sunday

Hey friends. This week was so great because Emma came to visit me in Nashville.

1. Did you see our new Oui Fresh Daisy Sunnies? We’re so proud of them. Emma is wearing them in this photo. And let’s be honest, we are wearing them, well, all the time. 

2. Loving this SUPER EASY method for making a DIY faux wood panel or shiplap wall. So good.

3. Have any of you been following Mandi’s renovation? Her IG stories are so good right now. She’s so inspiring!

4. I just found the prettiest spoons. Random, but fun!

5. I love Taylor Sterling’s Tumblr.

6. Almost cried when I saw these baby booties. So cute it hurts.

7. Oh, and some shoes for myself I just ordered. I just decided to “try” capsule wardrobe for fall. I’ve never tried it, but I like the idea of shopping all at once and then taking a break. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for getting started.

8. This cookbook looks so good.

9. It’s been quite a dark month for me in television land. I just finished The Handmaid’s Tale and now we’re watching Ozark, which is set in Missouri close to where we are from. I definitely love both shows even though The Handmaid’s Tale gave me multiple nightmares.

There’s always The Office reruns for a palate cleanser. It never fails me.

10. Best pair of jeans I’ve ever had for under $50.

PS: We’ve just started planning autumn blog posts and it’s crazy how fast my brain switched from not-at-all-ready to TOTALLY ready for fall. I’ll still be enjoying the rest of summer though … don’t worry!

I hope your weekend is lovely. I’m enjoying a short break between guests and gearing up for an INSANE photo shoot this week. We’re shooting all the new product for the fall, which I’ll be sharing in full detail with you soon! xx. Elsie

  • I’ve just discovered your blog and its all so aesthetically pleasing! x

  • Fun fact! Ozark was actually filmed in Atlanta and right outside of Atlanta! Lots of filming going on in my town r.n. Great show.

  • I have no idea what I would do if I didn’t have The Office or Parks and Rec to help me transition from “serious” mode to “casual” mode. I thought it was just my anxious personality, but I guess I’m not alone!

  • I both get and am in the throes of that Ozark/ The Office viewing balance. (and isn’t Jason Bateman amazing in that role?! So good.)

  • I cannot believe autumn is almost here 🙁 And it feels like there was no summer too! (at least in the UK)

  • Hey Elsie. My name is Lucy. I live in Springfield, TN. 30 Miles north of Nashville. You so need to visit this area. Within 5 seconds you will feel so at home! I have plants to share and can give you the most awesome tour of gardens and homes of Historic Springfield.

  • Those daisy sunnies have me swooning!! And I’m totally with ya, I can’t believe how ready I am for fall!

    (Also the Handmaid’s Tale is SO GOOD.)


  • Those ice cream spoons are adorable! I’m a sucker for cute kitchenware…Anthropologie has so many fun options. Excited for your fall blog posts!
