Weekend Reading.

this look will be coming soon to the blog!


This was a really fun but productive week. I mentioned it in my weekly newsletter (do you subscribe?) but I had two big highlights. The first was a shoot with Stylewatch Magazine… I’m going to be in their October issue! More on that soon. The second was (nerd alert!) a screening of The Secret Life of Pets with Petsmart. Guys. It was just so good. I couldn’t stop laughing and smiling. It opens in theaters next Friday – go see it!

Besides that, there was quite a bit of work… and working out. I celebrated 3 weeks of personal training by treating myself to a massage at The Carlyle (their spa is my most favorite spa in the world), and also… finally got caught up on Game of Thrones – amazing!!! This is going to be a low key weekend. I head to Cape Cod on Tuesday. Today my bff and I are going to the pool at Sixty LES, and on Monday my sister is throwing a BBQ. Other than that, no plans! Looking forward to a low-key weekend. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great – and… happy 4th!

I thought this was interesting… a history of red lipstick!

Loved this simple + chic look on Jess. Her photography is just so good.

I walked into J.Crew and bought this tie-front romper without having tried it on. A bold move, but luckily, it fit perfectly. This is 1000% my 4th of July outfit.

I was doing research to reply to a reader comment (on this post) and came across this Allure article – what order to apply your skincare products. So helpful!

My new gold birks came in the mail this week. No joke, I feel like I’ve been reunited with an old friend. I wore my old pair so much that I had to get a new pair.

Julia shared some really cute 4th of July outfit inspiration.

And Mackenzie shared some 4th of July entertaining inspiration – love, and wish I had a backyard!!!

The perfect pair of cropped jeans? Possibly.

My summer travel/city guide is up on Tasting Table! So happy with how this turned out.

I’m completely drooling over this Tibi cold-shoulder dress. (This one is really cute too, and it’s on sale.)

I thought Liz’s matching eyelet set was just SO cute!

How to use a beauty blender!

Krewe is my latest eyewear obsession… after seeing them on my friend Deirdre, I bought this tortoise pair and love them! (Mostly because they fit my big face.)

Molly and Sally’s Current Vibes series is always one of my faves… I always walk away learning about some cool new thing that I didn’t know about before. LOVE everything featured this week!

I bought this dress in Charleston. It will be on the blog soon. But it just went on sale and I worry that it will sell out so I had to share it here… I love it so much!

Kat actually looks like the red dress emoji in these photos. Love this look so so much.

Real talk: Instagram is the platform I have the hardest time with. I thought these tips were so helpful! (and agree regarding Planoly… it has helped me make my feed look so much prettier!)

This dress is SO pretty, and under $100!

Montauk is definitely my favorite of the Hamptons, and Jess put together a great travel guide.

A great read: The “Goldilocks” rule, slash… how to stay motivated in life and business.

Last but not least – Spanx sent me a box of their new workout gear, and it has to be said… these leggings rock. So flattering, so cute… the perfect “athleisure” item.
