Weekend Reading.

Happy Saturday! I was in Palm Springs all week (a mix between speaking on a panel/attending the conference and a couple days off which was so nice), getting home late last night. I honestly had no idea how much I would love Palm Springs. I fell in complete and utter love. Between the architecture, the breathtaking views (nothing quite like palm trees against the backdrop of the mountains), and a few really nice pool days; I wasn’t ready to come home. This weekend I don’t have much planned. I might be the only one of my friends who is in the city, but that could be a good thing? I have a lot of stuff I need to work on at home and should probably be a good girl and quarantine myself. (I’ll just stay off of Instagram… even after an amazing trip, the FOMO is real and I feel like I should be somewhere fun!)

Something exciting to share! My collaboration with Cooper & Ella + Dream Downtown was covered in WWD! You can read the full article right this way…

Before we dive into the links… everything is on sale this weekend! Here are the 4 that I’m most excited about!

  1. The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is going strong! There are so many markdowns, up to 40% off. A few of my favorite picks include: my favorite Vince sneakers in navy blue, these ($54!) lace-up sandals, this clear umbrella (the best for navigating the city in the rain), this cute crossbody, this dreamy Alice & Olivia maxi, and my favorite copper mugs (perf for Moscow mules!).
  2. West Elm is doing a buy-more, save more, where you can take up to 30% off with code SUMMER. Half of my apartment comes from West Elm – a few favs being my nightstands, dining chairs, dining table… and now I have my eye on their outdoor furniture – I love this patio set!
  3. LOFT is offering 40% off sitewide with code VACAY. In my cart: this flouncy one shoulder dress and this chambray jumpsuit. And so many of you guys have said wonderful things about their denim shorts so I’m considering this pair and this pair!
  4. I was only going to feature 3 sales but then I saw that Tuckernuck is running 20% off site-wide with code SUMMER. Everything they sell is just so cute. My favorite striped dress, this adorable yellow top, this drop-waist dress, this cropped trench… I could go on but I won’t. I pretty much could live in that store.

This week’s links!

Maybe I’m just in a Palm Springs state of mind but how amazing is this house!?

Game of Thrones fans, you don’t want to miss this: the Season 7 Trailer, broken down!!! So amazing and nerdy.

I am obsessed with the sleeves on this mini-dress!

Easy upgrades to IKEA furniture that make a huge difference!

I keep getting asked about my sequined palm tree tank top… isn’t it fun? It just went on sale

Holy moly – BaubleBar just launched the cutest line of accessories and I’m obsessed. My favorites are this tassel-covered bag, this palm leaf clutch, and this pom pom tote.

Is staying in the new going out? Love this!

I had been looking for a chic way to store my jewelry – my good friend sent me this option (on major sale) and I loved it so much that I ordered two (I have a LOT of jewelry!)

I’m really into kimonos for the beach and this one is under $20!

How to entertain like a French woman.

Mackenzie looks so cute in this striped sweater! I may need to play copycat.

The prettiest ruffled, striped skirt – at a great price.

All about essential oils!

This off-the-shoulder dress is so so cute and only $78. It comes in white too.

My friend Brent designed the most exquisite line of jewelry. It’s a little (a lot!) out of my price range but each piece is like art… it sure is fun to look at! (That rainbow ring!!!)

Yum – these summer salads all sound so good!

I got asked so many questions about my red one piece on Instagram stories. It’s Marysia!

Bows AND scallops? Loved this cute Spring outfit on Jenn.

You know I love a good cargo jacket – this one just went on sale!

YUM – I need to make this grapefruit sangria.

You know how much I love Tulum… Jess’s photos are amazing!

I love the sweet bow on the back of this striped tank… it’s darling!

Timely: how to make a spray tan last. I learned something new – avoiding oils after a tan!

I picked up this duvet cover this week and absolutely love it – especially the texture. It’s great for the price.

An answer to the question… what do bloggers do all day?

    I bought the sequin palm tee! I’m out of town for a wedding this weekend and snuck away yesterday for a little shopping before the holiday crowds hit. J Crew (at least the one in King of Prussia) was doing an extra 40% off sale items this weekend so it was a steal!

  4. I absolutely love your weekend reading wrap ups! Gives me a whole bunch of things that make me feel on top of the weekend! Ha!

    I hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend,
