Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was really nice. On Saturday I went out to Southampton. It was my first time leaving NYC/Brooklyn in nearly six months!

I went out here for a lunch with Nicole Miller and The Daily Front Row – it was outside on the water at Le Bilbouquet. It was a little weird to attend a brand event (my first in over five months?) but it was nice to feel “normal” for a little bit, even if “normal” looks so different and choosing which face mask to match to my dress was my biggest decision! Speaking of face masks, Nicole Miller has some really great ones. Super breathable and they have the nose wire to ensure a perfect fit.

The brand covered my transportation so I treated myself to a night at the cutest little B&B. It felt like vacation! Just to drive through farms and greenery, get iced coffee at The Golden Pear (it’s a chain in the Hamptons and I LOVE their iced coffee), and wander around felt so nice. A good little mental health break!

As a total aside, the (all white linen) bed I slept on was SO soft. I was curious about the bedding so did a bit of research. I figured it had to be super expensive but it’s not! It’s Fieldcrest linen and you can get it at TARGET! It looks to be sold out right now but I am absolutely going to buy a duvet and some pillow cases if it comes back in stock. It was so soft and felt super luxurious.

Kellie’s Merch!

My friend Kellie Brown launched the most chic line of merch! I am so inspired by her creativity and her sense of style, and I love that she features a range of beautiful body shapes. The designs are AMAZING and I love it all, but especially the Venus Tee (I’m wearing the loose fit tee in a size medium!) Highly recommend.

(I paired the tee with this blazer and these shorts. And these pearl hoop earrings!)

Hunt Slonem’s Glass Blown Bunnies

You might have seen on Instagram that I visited Hunt Slonem’s studio (definitely check out that post for photos of the space, it’s truly the most breathtaking, inspiring, happy place) last week. (Don’t worry, the space was empty and we all wore masks!) While I was there, he showed me some of his new bunny sculptures. They’re amazing! Watch the video below to see more of Hunt – and his bunnies, and a little bit about the process. It’s very cool seeing his process and of course how the bunny sculptures are made.

Pretty cool, right?

Jadeite Mixing Bowls

Jadeite Mixing Bowls

I bought these jadeite mixing bowls off of Liz Adams’ swipe up link last week and LOVE them. I’ve always loved the look of jadeite (my aunt actually has a HUGE collection and her shelves look so beautiful with them all together!) and am excited to have some of my own. Mosser Glass sells a lot more pieces in other beautiful shades.

This pretty little pearl tote!

I’ve talked about this in a few different posts but how pretty is this little pearl accent tote!? I really love it, and I haven’t seen anyone else carrying it, which I of course like. I also really like the internal drawstring as it keeps your things from falling out!

Selling Sunset

Selling Sunset

I’m so hooked on this show! I started with season 3 and think now I may need to go back and watch the other seasons? I’ve said this before but I am not really a big reality TV person. The only shows I watch are Southern Charm and sometimes The Bachelor. This is just… addicting, and the best “background noise” show… I put it on last night as I was finishing this post, for example. The mixture of drama + insane real estate is a good one!

    Love these posts you do so much! Your lineup of posts for the week is soooo good. Totally agree on Selling Sunset- I started on season 2 beginning of August and was counting down the days for the next one (season 3 came out August 7). I went back and watched season 1. I want more! I never thought I’d watch a show like that.

    Thank you for introducing me to Hunt Slonem, the bunnies and his amazing space – such happiness! Happy Monday 🙂

    So glad you were able to venture out of the city. And I love that handbag. So fun and you are right I haven’t seen anyone else carry it.

    Another fun round up Grace. I’ve got my eye on those bowls!I have a gorgeous water pitcher in fire orange mercury glass from Mosser that I love ( green and orange are my two favorite colors). FYI, I bought the Casaluna linen sheet set from Target in blush and they are really nice. The bunny sculptures are so sweet!

    I’ve been looking for a summer suit set for literally 2 years now. This one is SO cute and affordable. May need to snag for all those summer zoom meetings!

    Selling Sunset is currently the most exciting thing in my life! Def go back to the beginning — you can see them with less plastic surgery : )

    Definitely recommend going back and watching seasons 1 and 2 of Selling Sunset! With the seasons being so short it’s a quick watch and worth it for the drama! This show is a trip.

    I love, love, love Selling Sunset. I grew up in LA, have lived here my whole life and don’t know anyone like these ladies. They fascinate me.
    Also, would love to support your friend Kellie but the link is broken. Just thought you should know.
    Thx Grace. Love your blog.

      Hi Judy! I’m so glad you love it too! I just double checked all of the links to Kellie’s products and they are working! Which one is broken for you?
