loft pajamas (on sale!)

happy weekend! If you follow on Instagram etc. then you know I am in Harbour Island! I am SO happy to be here… I think a few days in the sunshine are going to be really beneficial… I’ve been a little stressed out and could use the R+R. So now we are here with Becca + Katie and Katie’s friend Kate… soaking up the sunshine, reading a LOT, and just having some fun friend time. It’s going to be a whirlwind, though! I get back Sunday night and then leave on Tuesday for a quick work trip to LA with Sephora! Have a great weekend! xoxo

Weekend Reading | 12.7.19.

UGH how good are these room makeovers!?

I recently discovered that LOFT has the best sleepwear (the patterns are SO good, I want so many more!) These are the ones I’m wearing above. I also have + love these fluffy pink slippers!

I thought this gift guide was very thoughtfully done: what to get every sort of employee!

How friendship changes with age.

This $45 tote 100% looks designer.

A thoughtful post from Jess about turning 35!

This sequin midi skirt is SO pretty – it would be great for NYE. I’m thinking with a black blazer + simple cotton tank OR for something more festive a bright silk camisole (fuchsia or emerald green?)

I really related to this piece on morning routines (especially as my own have been a bit of a mess lately!)

OMG baby pandas.

Does Tyrion need these pajamas??? And then I could get these and we could twin!?

Five books to read from African authors.

Love a good cozy turtleneck this time of year. This one is nice and long, and it’s only $39.

Mmmm…. love the sound of these holiday cookie recipes. Such a quality list!

Loooved this article by our pal Alyssa Mastromonaco on cats.

Still living in this cozy tie-dye sweatshirt. Go up a size or two for an extra comfy fit.

The best red lipsticks.

YUM – easy December weeknight dinner ideas.

I can never seem to get my necklaces just right (they’re always a little too short). I just realized BaubleBar sells necklace extenders which is SO SMART.

13 things to do on New Year’s Eve.

Hugh Grant recreating scenes from Love Actually to stop Brexit.

The Old Navy grey leopard coat came in the mail this week and it’s amazing. Looks designer!

RIP to the “sad single girl” holiday trope.

Still my most favorite sneakers. So glad I bought the white!

The best undereye concealers, according to makeup artists. I want to try the KKW one for dark circles but have no idea what my shade is!

WOW – I just about lost my mind when I saw this feature on my friend Emma (founder of Everyday Oil) on Doré! She is one of the most effortlessly stylish, naturally beautiful people I have met.

Not practical at ALL but… this rainbow cashmere duster!!!

One of the prettiest ways to wear your fragrance.

I can’t wait for the Devil Wears Prada musical!

I may look ridiculous in it (we will see!) but I ordered this green teddy coat. SO fun.

Winter outfit ideas from Gossip Girl.

Everything you need to know about Vitamin C + skincare.

I can’t tell if I’m crazy or if these lace up booties are cute. I really like them?

A definitive guide to preventing dry skin.

Glitter socks definitely seem like a good idea.

    The customer service for the amazon tie dye sweatshirt is awful! I returned it because it’s more shiny than the picture shows. States free returns but when you attempt to return the shirt they offer only a 30% refund and you have to pay shipping. Amazon had to step in. Hopefully I’m in the minority.
