Weekend Reading.


After last weekend’s adventure I am staying put here in New York, determined to get organized. Get ahead on my blog calendar, finish up my taxes… all that glamorous stuff. And get to the gym. I am feeling very puffy (which I wrote about here) and in need of a little detox. I’ve booked two Core Fusion classes and am planning on going for a run or two as well. Getting back into the swing of things after a trip is always a mix of exhilarating (I thrive on feeling organized and put together) but also annoying (I just want to sleep in and watch movies and be lazy)!

What’s changing in SEO this year. I try to stay on top of this stuff as it’s constantly changing – so confusing! Thanks a lot, google!

Tory Burch’s new arrivals are amazing. I love this tunic!

I loved Hitha’s honest post (and think she still looks pretty fabulous).

In need of a good new book, I ordered The Good Girl this week. Have you read it?

Why he didn’t text you back. (So good.) I also loved this piece about being more honest. Man Repeller’s content has been SO good lately.

I loved Liz’s vacation photos, but especially these photos. She looks so happy (in the prettiest dress).

The coolest pair of shoes I’ve ever seen for under $100. Wow. I ordered them because I mean, I had to.

Is your personality making you fat? Oy.

These earrings = miniature works of art… and they’re only $34!

There’s an interesting conversation over on Anna’s blog about the future of blogging. I feel optimistic about it (you can read my novel of a comment)… what about you?

How to be more confident.

Love this bright straw clutch.

The perfect striped sweater for summer.

I thought this was hilarious – what your ex-boyfriends say about you.

I’ve been buying these sheer bras in bulk. They’re so pretty and come in every color.

Gwyneth’s beauty routine.

Made me laugh – things people tweeted in 2006!

Pretty sure I need this maxi dress

Loved learning more about how Mackenzie started her business. Such a real and honest piece.

Rebecca Taylor (my favorite designer) is having a really big sale. My favorite dress is on sale too. Ugh. Sad that I paid full price, but lucky for you! (I did buy this dress, which I’d had my eye on for a while.) Use code SPRING16.

A really gorgeous artist to admire… I want to add one of her pieces to my apartment.

These lace-up flats are so fun!

Got a Spring wedding? Bookmark this post – Merritt tracked down so many pretty dresses.

Blog I’m loving this week: Annie Reeves. I “found” Annie’s blog because she comments here quite a bit (thanks, Annie!) and was delighted to see that she lives in Charleston, my other favorite city. Annie does a great job with her content – a well-rounded mix of personal style + fashion, her life in Charleston, and little things that she loves. I think we have similar taste as I always really love everything she features.

  1. I love that you featured Annie! I love her blog, Annie is so fun and real and has great taste. I also featured her on my own blog last year: http://girlforgranted.com/2015/06/girl-for-granted-talk-annie-reeves/

    On another note, I wanted to tell you Grace, that I think you’ve been doing such a great job with your content lately. It’s been consistently great – entertaining, informative, accessible and I love that you’ve brought back the discovery element into blogging. Keep it up gal, and have a great Easter weekendl! xx

      Amy that is so nice of you to say. Blogging can feel a little isolating – you put things out there and hope that others enjoy/relate to it, but you’re never entirely sure!!!

      Hope you have a great Easter! Xo

  2. Annie’s blog is one of my daily reads as well 🙂 She has impeccable taste!

    As for the future of blogging, I’m idealistic as well! If everyone continues to blog for the reason they say they started, then nothing should change. I blog because it’s my escape and a place I can document things I love, what’s going on in my life and the like. I do believe the future of blogging will weed out anyone who is doing it for the wrong reasons.

    Anna’s post inspired me to add a list of my daily reads to my sidebar 🙂

    • Jess, you’ve inspired me to think about adding a side bar with my favourite blogs as well. After all, I’ve said time and time again that it’s the community of all you special ladies that I really love about blogging, so what better way to show that. x

        I love that you guys are doing that. I don’t have room with my design but it’s something I’d like to build into my next round of site changes. In the meantime I try to highlight my fave reads via this weekly post. xx

  3. I really can’t tell you how much it meant to read this today! You’re such an inspiration and (much) more importantly such a kind person. Hope you have a happy rest of your weekend! xx

    I read The Good Girl …. honestly I hated it. It was actually super frustrating – I don’t want to give anything away but I’m sure you’ll figure it out once you start reading!

      • I liked the Good Girl a lot more than I thought I would. Hope you enjoy!
