Happy weekend. This week was a bit of a blur. I got back from Vienna on Tuesday night and then spent most of Wednesday and Thursday in workshops with Sephora for my Sephora Squad partnership. This weekend will mostly be spent catching up on blog content and brand partnership drafts (and resting a bit, too!). Also, did you see that You is back on Netflix? Season 3… I am EXCITED. Besides that, my friends and I are going to a haunted house tonight which should be really fun. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s wonderful. Xo

To be happy, hide from the spotlight. 

Love clean beauty? This set has some incredible products at a great price!

I always love this column: he best TV, music, books, and movies coming out in the next few weeks.

Love these crowd-sourced productivity tips!

This smocked dress looks like Reformation but it’s $24.

Lazy Halloween costume ideas.

On dropping your routine.

My kind of book list: the best dark academia books to read this fall.

Such a pretty, ethereal dress. Looks like Zimmermann or something way more expensive.

Wow, this lucite jewelry is just next level cool.

This little mini dress is 90’s chic in the best way. I love the red.

On kindness.

Mmmm… lots and lots of soup recipes!

The prettiest fall dress, at a great price.

On The Carlyle’s enduring appeal. (My favorite hotel!)

Really love this colorblock sweater. The brown is my fav.

Reese Witherspoon wants you to rethink your reading nook!


Sephora launched same day delivery.

The best flat black boots at a great price.

Love this financial advice from Sallie Krawcheck.

These agate coasters are just stunning.

The best books of 2021. I’ve read a lot of these and think that it looks like a pretty good list!

Cannot wait for season 3 of Succession. Tomorrow!!!

On the healing power of reminiscing.

Love this long and cozy tunic style top. Free People just does comfy stuff so well.

This winter squash and shallot tart looks delicious.

This piece made me laugh (and it’s true!) – we are eating like it’s the nineties again!

This cozy pullover just got marked down.

LOOK at these fluffy pumpkin pancakes!

This is a very good midi dress.

The best brunches in New York City.

WOW – on my travel bucket list: inside a Wes Anderson designed train.

My jaw dropped when I saw this white lace maxi dress. The back!!!!

    Probably kind of a bummer comment but does anyone prefer to travel locally instead of flying? Climate change is caused by fossil fuel use so I know for myself, I don’t want to fly if I can help it. Love the outfits and books The Stripe features, but in general air travel is not aspirational for me anymore.

    I bought the $24 smocked dress and it is perfect. Probably about 50% as flattering and comfortable as the nap dress for 20% of the price, so a good trade off in my opinion!

    BONUS – I am wearing the blue and white check pattern with red heels for a Dorothy outfit for Halloween. Literally effortless, very affordable, and a dress I will wear again and again! Thanks for the recco
