Weekend Reading.

Happy WEEKEND! Okay I don’t know why I wrote that in all caps, I am just feeling excited about the weekend I guess? Last night I had a nice little introvert night (the best after a plans-packed week!), and besides that I have two yoga classes, brunch plans with my sister, and a fun little blog project today (see more on Instagram stories… Krystal and I are headed to the Liberty trade show and I’m going to make a video about the trends we see there – it’s been a long time since my last video!) I hope you guys have a great weekend… take some time for you and relax a little, if you can! Somehow I have a LOT more links than usual – hope you like them! PS – How fun is this eye mask? My FAVORITE print… it makes me so happy!

I loved Julia’s tips for having a better morning.

My friend Lydia wrote an excellent piece about the lack of diversity at fashion week.

A good trick for beating static cling.

It’s time to stock up on pretty jewels! BaubleBar is having a giant sale… with up to 80% off – prices go back up after the weekend! I didn’t think the prices were real. My favorite ball drop earrings are only $12,  and these huge tassel earrings are also only $12. Get shopping!

I totally agree with this inexpensive decorating advice… (I’d also suggest a can of paint!)

You know how much I love yellow and this striped dress is just so pretty! #need

Loved this outfit on Julia so much – and her honesty about body confidence.

Five tricks your mind plays that prevent you from making good decisions!

I love organized packing and am pretty excited about these marbled packing cubes.

Grown up hair bows.

This striped top is so cute – and it’s only $35. Seriously!

Blair put together a little rainbow of past outfit photos and I loved it… all of that color is certainly very inspiring this time of year!

How’s this for a dreamy Paris escape!?

These tasseled sandals are just everythin

This deodorant information is sort of mind blowing. I am intrigued/excited to try doing it.

Really, really into this yellow gingham crop top + wrap skirt combo.

I loved Krista’s post about keeping her relationship private.

One of my favorite blogs got a very pretty makeover.

I’ve been thinking about getting a Barbour jacket and really love this one – what do we think?

I saw her wearing it in person and Hitha’s gnocchi tee simultaneously makes me hungry + cracks me up.

The sweetest floral dress at a great price.

Some really great book news!

Planning a vacation? Here’s where the dollar is strongest right now.

The cutest little vacation dress… for only $29!

Kat looks stunning in winter white! Loving these snowy photos!!!

I’m obsessed with this bodysuit… shirts always come untucked so this fixes that!

Regarding the great yoga pants debate; The Cut got it perfectly right!

You all know how much I love kombucha – this margarita sounds SO good!

I really like the look of this open weave sweater – feel like I’d get a LOT of wear out of it.

Jenn looks so pretty in this embellished mini dress.

I mean, I need emerald green pumps in my life, right?

Something I’m personally working on: being more direct and straightforward!!!

I always love Heather’s beauty recommendations – this is a longgggg list!

These “molten gold mules” are so chic – and under $100.

Adored Jacey’s lazy girl beauty hacks – these tips are great!

I love the oversized braids on these sandals!

Really good dating advice.

Loved Mackenzie’s essay about being herself on the Internet.

I need another lace top like a hole in the head but I reallly do just love this one!

I’ve always wanted to spend more time in Shoreditch – loved Alicia’s photos!

A chic printed blouse from one of my new favorite designers.

You know I love a good striped dress

Pretty sure this confirms it: scrunchies are BACK! Also from Man Repeller (their content has been so good) how to look/feel/be more put together.

      Oh wow! When Dannijo starts selling scrunchies you know they’re cool again! xx

    Loved the mind trick article. I still think that body suits are the most comfortable thing I ever wore. Given that I was around the first time these were popular ( think early 90s) and I follow my ” If you were around for the first time, you should probably not participate when it comes back” rule ( no judging others who do.. just my own personal rule) I will sit this one out but loved the look of them still 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    • grace at the stripe says 2.24.18

      Haha, agreed that they are SO comfy!!!!
      I was around when they were first popular too so I don’t know what that says but I think they’ve gotten better/more flattering/comfortable! xo

    Thanks for including me, lady! Cheers to the weekend ahead!

    I, too, enjoyed Mackenzie’s piece on being herself on her blog. This is something I think you do exceedingly well (also props to Cup of Jo, if there is national tragedy I always know that blog will cover it ahead of anything else). I think since you have the platform you do, it’s important to share what you believe and what’s on your mind, not what you think people want to hear. I crave authentic spaces on the internet and The Stripe definitely is one!

  7. Erin says 2.24.18

    Yes to the Barbour jacket! My husband just got me one for my birthday and I wasn’t sure I liked it at first but after one or two wears I’m now on board!

  8. Suze says 2.24.18

    Yes to scrunchies, Paris, and packing cubes! No to bows and 4 inch heels – I would definitely trip. I saw an ad for limited edition Emerald Tieks so stay tuned!!! Back from kickboxing class and trying to understand Olympic curling…..the athletes don’t wear skates and talk a lot!!GO USA!!!

    • grace at the stripe says 2.24.18

      YES! Let me know how you like the Tieks. I loved how comfy they were but the bright turquoise bottoms always bugged me!! Go USA!!!

    Thank you so much for including me (and in such excellent company). Hope you’ve had the BEST weekend!
