Weekend Reading.


Happy weekend. I’m in Connecticut for a good friend’s wedding. We are staying at the cutest little inn in Essex, Connecticut and I’ve completely fallen in love with the town. It feels like we are hours and hours away from the city, but it’s only a quick(ish) train ride away. It’s a little bit hilarious/terrifying… I’m only in New York mayyyybe six full days this month. I’m not complaining, but my apartment’s a bit of a wreck and I’m getting incredibly good at getting my work done on the go. Poor Tyrion. He’s either being schlepped along with me, hanging out at my sister’s place in Brooklyn, or stuck at home, with daily visits from his sitter. Luckily he’s a little bit obsessed with her. But I digress: whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s fab!

*Some good advice on preventing burnout at work. I’ve read a lot of guides/posts about this particular topic and thought the advice here was very good.

* I get so many compliments on my Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots. Sam Edleman has a very similar version, which is on sale right now at Nordstrom. I know it’s too hot to even think about boots, but the price is right.

* Jess celebrated two years of blogging, with a fun giveaway.

* For the cheese lovers.

* An ultra mod cold shoulder shift dress, on sale!

* Sam gave her site a gorgeous new redesign.

* This post, from Felicia, is a must-read. I’ve loved following her journey over the past couple years. She never fails to inspire me, but especially so here.

* My favorite new Instagram. I want to be friends with him as I can sooo relate.

* Crushing on this blue & white embroidered dress. (This one, too.)

* Some (really helpful, I thought… but then again I am kinda bad at it!) Snapchat Secrets!

* Anyone else really excited about Madewell + Sézane’s second collab?

* The coolest tassel bib necklace.

* Loving this look on Briony… her blog is one of my favorites and she is just the cutest!

* Seeing that I can barely do a pushup, I’m considering doing Refinery 29’s 30 Day Pushup Challenge.

* 17 ways to wear a bandana.

* The most chic espadrille flats, possibly ever. Love everything about these.

* I bookmarked Molly & Sally’s Napa Recommendations as I’m headed their in August.

    It sounds like you found Stars Hollow – jealous!

    Last time I tried a push-up chalkrnge I quit after a few days. I wanted killer Michelle Obama arms but all I got were sad T-Rex arms. Ouch.

    All the ways to wear a bandana, my life has changed. Also I feel the need to try that push-up challenge even though I know I’ll make it through two days before cracking.

    I live in Sonoma County (just over the hill from Napa) and I love love love farmstead. It’s so good! My boyfriend and I make special trips to Napa just to eat there. If you have time, you should check out the russian river valley and dry creek valleys near Healdsburg. And Healdsburg too, it’s such a cute small town with plenty of tasting rooms!
