Weekend Reading, 1.22.22.

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend (and staying warm – we’ve had some really cold weather here in Charleston – everyone is freaking out and everything closed early yesterday!). My boyfriend is visiting this weekend and we’re mostly just hunkering down and being cozy with a few exceptions (dinner tonight, brunch with my parents tomorrow, hopefully some Zoe time in there). Whatever you are up to, I hope it is great. xo

The world needs more sweatshirt henleys. How cozy does that look?

All the best new stuff (movies! TV! books! art!) coming out over the next couple weeks.

Very into this winter wonderland of a skirt. It would be so fun to style (I’d do a fitted white blouse, a cozy cashmere turtleneck, or a slinky cami for a party).

I loved (and deeply related to) this article about running. I feel exactly the same!

A very good date night/going out top – I naturally gravitate toward the green but love the pink too!

This face mask is deeply upsetting (but would make for an incredible gag gift?).

    It’s going to take a lot of willpower to not buy the pink/red color block cashmere from Anthro. I don’t think I’ve had an item of clothing call to me that loudly in a loooong time.

    The running article is perfect. Something about just concentrating on putting one foot in front of the other, breathing in and out. If I don’t get outside and move my stress level is so much higher.

      Yes! Couldn’t agree more.
