Happy happy Monday! (Is there such a thing?) I’m turning 25 tomorrow, and to be honest, I’m not very excited, so this week is a bit of an eh for me. Am I the only one who is incredibly underwhelmed by birthdays nowadays? I haven’t been truly excited for one since I was 21. That one, I admit, I was really thrilled about — especially because I was one of the last of my friends to hit the big 2-1. I guess now I can rent cars without a surcharge!
Though I’m not a big birthday person, I do think it would be depressing to just sit at home (especially when you’re down about getting older!), so I’m going out for drinks and lobster rolls with a few friends at a boat bar in Tribeca, Grand Banks. I’ve never been so hopefully it’s a good spot! I wanted to do something outdoors last year and it ended up POURING, so if it’s good weather this year I’ll be happy no matter what.
In more exciting news than my impending quarter life crisis, I have a new member of my handbag family: The Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag. It’s still in stock online if you want to buy brand new, but I picked mine up on Mercari, a new-to-me resale app (and was able to snag it for way, way less by doing so!) I usually sell things on Poshmark, but what’s great about Mercari is that the app only takes a 10% cut of what you sell, so you end up with more money in the end! I’ve listed a few items on there since, and have it on my to-do list to do more! I’ve been thinking about writing a post for my tips on reselling items. I’m by no means an expert, but I’ve made nearly $1,000 doing so over the years, so I have a bit of wisdom to share!
I’ve been loving the sneaker + simple dress look this summer. It’s cozy, it’s easy and it’s comfortable. You can’t go wrong. My office is also casual enough that this would be an acceptable work outfit. (Seriously, my biggest thought when buying clothes as an adult. Can I wear this to work? If not, that’s a big chunk of time I can’t wear it!) Also, Kate Middleton loves Superga sneakers (not to mention, stripes!), so you know they’re good!
Also, a reminder (as if you need one!): The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on. Stuff is shipping insanely fast — I already got a sweater I ordered on Friday! But really, I need them to restock this suede skirt. It’s so cute!
