The AUGUST Edit

August. This month is always bittersweet for me but especially so this year. I love summer and spending our days at the beach and the second August hits, I end up with a bit of a pit in my stomach. This month always seems to fly by and September shows up before we know it. Our kids are supposed to be heading back to school and I pray that it ends up happening because we all need it. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous about it. School is going to look extremely different this year. I remember thinking in early April that this would all be over come summer. Clearly we aren't even close to being back to normal and I'm fearful about what fall and winter will bring. Even with the crazy circumstances, we had a really nice summer and I'm going to try to hang on and savor these next few weeks. We are headed back to Nantucket soon and I cannot wait. At the beach with my family is where I feel my happiest. 

On to this month's Edit. Most of the pieces in this month's roundup are easy, neutral, and transitional pieces. I also included a few random, non clothing tidbits. I hope you enjoy!

  • I finished Glennon Doyle's "Untamed" this month and there were so many good nuggets that really got me thinking. This in particular: "What if we decided that successful parenting includes working to make sure that all kids have enough, not just that the particular kids assigned to us have everything? What if we used our mothering love less like a laser, burning holes into the children assigned to us, and more like the sun, making sure all kids are warm?" Immediately after reading this, I thought of Adrienne Harper who founded Bundles of Joy. Bundles of Joy is a charitable organization that gives new parents and babies from birth to three essentials they need to thrive. I'm in constant awe of how much Adrienne and the entire Bundles of Joy team does on a daily basis to help these families in our area. You can help, too by donating and buying items off their Amazon registry. It is so easy!  
  • The Nordstrom Anniversary sale early access has opened up to a few more tiers. I bought my kids some jackets and coats that I mentioned in this post and the only thing I ended up buying for myself are these boots. So many things have sold out already but I always check back and see if anything becomes available again. 
  • I love simple gold hoop earrings and Madewell makes some of the best ones for such a great price. Love these chunky ones
