Weekend Reading 12.12.20
dress // bag // heels // mask

Happy weekend. This was a nice little week. Brand collabs and deadlines are slowing down a bit, I saw my family a bunch, I read a LOTTTT, went for some good walks… it was just a go with the flow, calm and breezy week. (I feel like I never say that back home, ha!) Media consumption is at a high. I watched the Hilma af Klint d0cumentary on Amazon, I started and finished reading White Ivy and This Time Next Year, and then I started What Would Frida Do?. And as I write this now, I’m settled in with Sex and the City reruns and a glass of wine. PS – if you missed my second Amazon Drop collection, pieces have started to land here under “just a few left.”

    I’m so happy to hear you had a breezy week, it has been such a stressful year your “move” sounds so replenishing.

    This post hit so many spots we had a tough but really good talk about how to create an anti-racist lab this week so the How Can I Talk About Race Without Getting It Wrong was really helpful.

    my brain is constantly fried so the movie recs are great, can you believe I’ve never seen love actually? Maybe it’s time!

    And I have bookmarked the Self article on “How to Plan Your Workout When Your Mind and Body Are All Over the Place” I so needed this as I can’t seem to make a decision on how to move to support my health when stressed. Thank you so much!

    Have a wonderful week!
