Where Have You Been + Recently Purchased

Cue the Rihanna song "Where have you been?" I've been a little MIA over here on this side of life! I have a lot of content prepared for the coming weeks but life over the last few days has certainly caught up with me! On Labor Day weekend, I took a trip to Charlottesville to celebrate one of my best gal's bachelorette's. Then we had an incredibly busy week at ZIA, complete with our one-year birthday celebration. This week was supposed to be spent planning for our market trip to Coterie in NYC, but we are changing our preparation plans. We are now preparing for a hurricane, so I'll probably continue to be off schedule for a little bit longer.

The East Coast, particularly my little beach town, is in full-fledged hurricane prep-mode. Though exact landfall is uncertain at this point, Hurricane Florence is a Category 4 hurricane with its eye on Wilmington - and y'all. That is scary! I have spend today (Monday) making a hurricane plan for the store. Thankfully, my mom and I stocked up on some supplies over the weekend but the closer this storm gets, the more worried we all are. 

The upside though is that I'd love to share a few of my recent finds!
1. Noteworthy Planner
I have finally found a planner that works for me! And it's under $20... amazing, right? I have always loved a paper planner. I do our store schedule through iCal but everything else has a place in my paper planner. I also love keeping a list but found that I didn't necessarily need a full two-page weekly calendar and the daily wasn't the best option for me because my to-dos are often weekly instead of daily. When I came across this one, I was sold! I love the monthly view and then the weekly page along with a notes page beside it. It's much more efficient than keeping up with two different things.  
2. Comfiest Athleisure
I seriously love comfy pieces, and I've already worn this tank multiple times (runs pretty big - wearing size small). And as we head into fall, I know these leggings will be a staple. I love the understated camo print. 
3. Paper Bag Shorts
Before I went to Charlottesville, VA for my friend Cameron's bachelorette trip, I stocked up on a few new pieces! I've been to Charlottesville twice before (read about one of my fun trips here), but both times I went, it was quite chilly! This time, the weather was in the 80s and 90s, so I knew I would need something lightweight. We spent the Saturday of the trip at a variety of breweries and distilleries, so these little shorts and this tank were the perfect option.
4. Distressed Denim Shorts
This tank makes an appearance again, but this time with these fun jean shorts! I've lived in a pair of shorts from my store all summer but these were too fun to resist. If you love a good pair of ripped jeans, give these a try! Reviews said to size down but I'd say they are true to size.

For all of my friends getting ready to brave this storm, be safe! Prayers for Wilmington, for our East Coast, and for everyone in this storm's path.
