Weekend Reading.


Aloha and greetings from Kauai! We’ve been here for only a day now, and I’m already in love. Today is one of my best girlfriends’ weddings and I’m so excited to be out here to celebrate with her. It’s a bit surreal to finally be here as we’ve been planning the trip since last November! Five of us rented a villa on Hanalei Bay and it’s pure magic/relaxation.

Stripe Finds // Little discoveries you'll love

bling, bling

I was a little over monogrammed necklaces (sorry!) until I spied this one at BaubleBar. The longer chain + spinning central element make it feel unique and special (not to mention fun to play with.) It will layer perfectly with shorter gold necklaces.

I’ve been really impressed with all of J.Crew’s new arrivals this season but am particularly drawn to the new “Bennett” crossbody bag. The size + silhouette is perfect, and doubles as a clutch if you take off the strap. Also, you can monogram it. The spearmint hue is fun and unexpected.


The Luckiest Girl Alive was hailed as 2015’s Gone Girl, and while I won’t say that it quite lived up to that level of hype (has any book actually succeeded in being that?) I really enjoyed it. It takes you on a wild journey alternating between the main character’s childhood + present day.


Let’s discuss this pretty lace dress, shall we? Figure-flattering a-line silhouette: check. Expensive looking lace: check. $160 price-tag: check. And, it comes in four colors. The emerald green is my favorite but I also really love the coral and red. I’m pretty sure it’s a must.
