Weekend Reading | 10.19.19
pajamas + sleep mask!

Happy weekend! This week was a little bit intense. We were away Weds-Fri in DC + Philly for live shows. So fun but a little draining, too! I got home yesterday afternoon (we were only gone two nights but it felt like a whole week) and proceeded to just melt into my couch. I finished Succession and am excited to start Modern Love today. Also, I have a pretty low key weekend ahead. I have a few workouts planned and am hosting a reader meetup this afternoon (more details in the facebook group!) and am otherwise laying low! We head to Atlanta this coming Wednesday for another live show and I’m so excited – I have not spent enough time in Atlanta and we booked our trip so that we’ll have a free day to explore and relax!

    Am watching Succession very slowly, I still have a few more episodes left in the season, so I thank you for not mentioning any spoilers. And speaking of tv, am SO excited for the Christmas movies!!

    I really enjoyed reading TheRealReal article last night! I haven’t been able to wrap my mind around this whole online buying secondhand because it always seems like so much scrolling, digging, etc. but I LOVE the idea of the circular economy and buying less/higher quality!

    • grace at the stripe says 10.21.19

      I have found some of my best pieces on The RealReal!

        I took the plunge after seeing the sequin dress you found on the site and reading Helena’s super simple post. I was able to narrow down my search to a manageable size and I’m happy to report I found a lovely NWT pair of pumps that will soon be in my hands 🙂
