The above intimates were gifted for the post by the lovely folks of Wantable

Last February, I teamed up with Milwaukee-based subscription company Wantable to show off a box of jewelry chosen for me based on my interests and likes. This month, they reached out once more, this time offering a box of my choice as a little "taste of home gift," since I moved away from Milwaukee. I was absolutely delighted since I loved what they gifted my first time around. This time was no exception.

Now that I'm a married lady and all, I choose to go with a box of intimates. For those that aren't familiar with Wantable, they also offer makeup, fitness, and accessories boxes as well. I was like a kid on Christmas morning when this box arrived at our new apartment, and was even more excited when its contents were revealed. In short: they nailed it. I know the subject of intimates can be a rather awkward topic for the Internet, but they completely captured my taste: simple and elegant. Above, you'll see two out of four of the intimates I received, all of which I will be putting to great use. The contents of these boxes are well worth the cost if you ask me. Check it out, ladies. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

A huge thanks to the team over at Wantable!

Time to take stock once again! I can't believe how much has changed since the last time I did this a few months ago. P.s. chopped a few inches off my hair! Love how healthy it feels now. Happy Friday!

Please tell me you choose your outfits in the morning based on whether or not the pieces needs ironing. Maybe it's just some quarter-life laziness setting in, but I avoid wrinkly blouses like the plague. Weirdly enough, I actually enjoy the act of ironing. Something about my perfectionist spirit needing to smooth out every. single. wrinkle... but when it's time to get dressed, I struggle to want to go through the process.

This blouse is a prime example. It's one of my favorite shirts in my closet. It's neutral, soft, and extremely versatile, but this thing wrinkles like none other after it's washed. I'm pretty sure it took me about 25 minutes to iron it on Monday, but it was nice to welcome some longer sleeves back into the mix. Speaking of which, happy first day of fall! What does everyone have planned this season? I myself am hoping to join the thousands of other "leaf peepers" (yes those are actually a group of people who come to New England to peep on the fall leaves) on a few hikes in Maine. Plus eat a lot of candy, but that's a given this time of year. Happy Tuesday y'all!
