More accurately, this should be titled, Coffee Ice Cream Conversations, but who really cares?

Well, HEY! It's been a minute. Or really, like a week. I was traveling for the latter half of last week and then I've been in the midst of catching up on work and caring for a sick cat. So, here we are. 

I'm so excited for the 4th of July this weekend. I don't know what it is about this holiday, but I just love it. Mike and I are heading up to my family's lakehouse with a couple friends, so we're looking forward to a little getaway from the city and enjoying lake life for a couple days. But also, how is it July TOMORROW?

Poor Otis is a little sick. I have him on antibiotics and am hoping that does the trick, but it's sort of a waiting game right now. It's so hard with pets because they obviously can't tell you exactly how they feel, so I'm constantly checking on him and hoping that I'm reading his body language correctly. He's been the same old snuggly dude that he usually is, so I'm hopeful that he isn't too bothered. 

One of my favorite things about having my own business(es) is having complete freedom when it comes to website design, branding, etc. I love that aspect, maybe more than any other part. I've been doing some updates to both Elisabeth Ashlie and The Dearly Box and am loving how they're coming together. 

I picked up this lipstick when I was with my sister last weekend and love it. It's a beautiful sheer pink that adds just the right amount of color without feeling like I'm too glammed up. (Color is Obsessed)

I shared this top yesterday on Instagram (@the_laurenelizabeth) and want to wear it everyday. 

Seeing this makes me so ready for fall weather so I can wear layers again!

Hope you all have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
