Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I’m not certain that I can pull off a peplum tee, but this one seems so flirty and fun, and it comes in a ton of different color options!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Loving this ladylike look from Liz and her list of must-sees and must-dos in Charleston (a city I am hoping to visit in the next few years)!
  3. Striped sneakers that I most definitely need in my life!
  4. I love staying in Airbnbs (more here if you’re interested). We’ve used them on trips in the US and trips abroad, and minus one or two exceptions, I’d rather stay in an Airbnb than a hotel on most trips. We’ve booked two Airbnbs for our trip to Texas in February, and maybe someday, I’ll get my act together and blog about my Airbnb stays, but in the meantime, here are some of the most Instagrammable Airbnbs out there!
  5. The prettiest mixed polka dot print is riiiiiigggght here! Definitely adding this to my wishlist!
  6. I don’t speak French, and I certainly I don’t need another sweatshirt, but this French colors sweatshirt is sitting in my shopping cart right now. 
  7. Kids these days….are getting cooler and cooler. This 4-year-old has read over 1,000 books and got to be the Library of Congress’s first-ever Librarian for the Day! 
  8. I’m going to need this bike print top. Stat.
  9. These fudgy, brownie-like cookies look delicious and easy to make…which probably means you need to make them and share them with me! ;)
  10. A plaid brim baseball hat…for $25? Yes, please!

It’s hard to look fashionable when it is 16 degrees outside, and you just want to zip yourself into a sleeping bag and hop your way into work. Guilty.

But other times, you just can’t let winter win.

So in those situations, it’s time to pile on your most fashionable items and pull off your best winter luxury look. And that’s exactly what I did on this particular this day with my camel coat, faux fur stole/scarf, and cozy black earmuffs.

Katie: 1. Winter: 0.*

*Okay, this might be a bit skewed, but we’re going with it.

I was thinking the other day how great of a title “Checkmate” would be for a post that featured my new favorite coat, so here we are.

But then I also got to thinking about how hilarious it was that a game like chess (known as the thinking man’s game) had a battle cry of “Checkmate,” which for those of you who aren’t familiar with the game means that your opponent has no other moves to save their king (which ends the game).

No other game that I can think of has anything like this. It’s basically like someone shooting the final basket of a basketball game and yelling “Booyah.” Or a soccer player scoring a goal and saying “Na-na-na-na-boo-boo.”

So much for a noble game.

Just some food for thought for your Monday before Christmas break. Checkmate, y’all.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Only two things for you today…
  • Yay for it being Friday and a half day and a week before Christmas and Star Wars release day (nerd alert)!
  • Today is also a big day for my immediate family. My baby brother launched his indie video game, Astroneer (here), today, and I’m so PROUD of him! This has been a long, long time coming, and he and his team have put so much time and effort into it! If you or anyone you know are a fan of space or exploration-style games (like Minecraft), check out this cool new game (for PC or X-Box)! The perfect Christmas present, I think (though I am 100% biased)! So proud of you, R!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?
