Friday Links + A Labor Day Outfit

Sharing is caring!

Labor Day Outfit Idea

Hello! It’s time for another installment of Friday Links! Plus I’m also sharing an outfit that I think will be perfect for Labor Day!

I’m a big fan of Josh Young’s art and design work, in fact I shared one of his art pieces in my bedroom inspo. House Beautiful just did a feature on his new bedroom design and it is gorgeous. I love the stark contrast of the black and white in the room.

As I’ve gotten into podcasts, true crime has definitely been the genre I’ve been most drawn to. Here is a round up of some of the best. I’ve already listened to Dirty John, and I’m currently going through The Clearing, but I’m excited to dive into some of the others.

I love dalmatians. When I saw this sweater it was an immediate add to cart moment.

Do you watch Dancing with the Stars? I’m kind of hit and miss with each season, but I always enjoy seeing the new cast announced. I may have to tune in for Kel Mitchell, Kate Flannery, and James Van Der Beek.

Labor Day Outfit Idea

When I think of summer holidays, I think Americana. Even with Labor Day, which seems much less patriotic than Memorial Day or the Fourth of July, I still think red, white, and blue are in order. Also, I had to throw in my white jeans because it’s the last “official” day to wear them (although these are coming with me way into fall and winter).

I’m really disappointed that I can’t find this bag on Aldo’s website anymore. I linked a couple that will give a similar look.
