Something weird is happening in New England. It’s been in the 80’s for the last two days… but it’s October. I’m so confused! It is cold in the mornings and evenings but mid-day when the sun beats down, it feels almost like summer. Layering has become even more necessary than usual. I was excited to be able to wear this short-sleeved sweater dress (more sizes available in grey/navy) one last time without layering a turtleneck under it before winter hits.
It’s such a flattering cut and couldn’t be softer. It’s made by my friend’s company, Sail to Sable, and they’re having a huge warehouse sale where you can take an extra 40% off sale items with code SALE1640. Most of my favorite summer dresses are from here including this one and this one. Note: I always size down in her dresses.
Looking for even more affordable sweater dresses? This v-neck beauty comes in five colors for $59, and I love this turtleneck dress for $58, but my favorite has to be the hem on this gorgeous frock… I can’t believe it’s only $68!
Speaking of sales, I just found out that my favorite fall sweater (which I now own in five colors) is on sale for 50% off today only. Use code HALFOFF with the pin 9710. You can see how I wore it last here and here. The best part? It comes in 10 colors and, with the sale, comes out to $35.
Ok that was a lot of sale talk, sorry! Now on to my headspace this week: Coming back from Napa was tough. I obviously drank a little too much there, so am still paying the price today. While the trip was so much fun and I wouldn’t change it for the world, it reminded me of why I choose to live a healthy, less than indulgent lifestyle most days. My body feels better when I don’t eat gluten or drink more than a glass of wine on any given day. I sleep better, my nose is less stuffy, and I’m not bloated.
While I was there, I was more lenient with my diet and definitely had more wine in two days than I’ve had in the last two months, which felt carefree and fun, but I’m thinking now that as I grow older and solidify my priorities, it’s not worth it for me to go overboard like that anymore.
I sometimes feel like I’m teetering on the edge of wanting to have a great time and let loose, while also wanting to not feel awful the next day. Clearly I’m super sensitive to food and alcohol more than most people, but I’d love to know if any of you have gone through something similar in your 30’s?
