Weekend Reading 2.5.22
towel + eye gels linked in my amazon shop

Happy weekend! I am in LA for a few nights. The Ace invited us for a little staycation downtown which will be so fun as downtown is more of a hike from where my boyfriend lives. I am looking forward to some good sushi in particular… we went to Little Tokyo this summer and it was probably the best sushi I’ve ever had. It will be nice to spend the weekend together and then on Monday night I fly to New York for a few fashion week things and meetings and my best friend’s birthday… back to Charleston on Thursday morning. Quite the whirlwind! Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great… enjoy your weekend. PS – if you are looking for a good book to read, I started Black Cake on the plane and am completely hooked.

Weekend Reading, 2.5.22

What the American home has looked like over the years.

I scooped up this little baby doll dress this week. Such a good price and so cute – looks a lot like Reformation!

I love this article and the idea of rethinking boredom.

24 Black history documentaries to add to your watch list and expand your knowledge.

A Black history month reading list!

Cozy and perfect – this striped henley.

Liz’s meatball recipe looks so good (and easy!).

This puff sleeve dress is so cute and a great price.

58 Black-owned businesses to elevate your wardrobe, home, and beauty routine.

I thought Aiden was going to be part of And Just Like That!?!

Oh I love the PRINT of this sun dress! Perfect for vacation.

Has social media reached a breaking point?

I have been very into the barrette trend: shorter hair makes hair accessories so much easier.

Here are three I love: this triple circle (it’s a great price), this wavy gingham (like an art piece for your hair) and this (more of a splurge but so good) tortoise bow.

Can Jennifer Lopez save the Rom-Com?

Hooray… Hollywood has discovered the middle-aged woman!

I ordered this leopard mini dress this week. I love the pattern and it’s such a good price!

You know I love this list: all the best new releases coming soon in TV, movies, books, art, and beyond.

Anthropologie has so many good dresses right now. I love this floral maxi.

Are we living in a world of fashion copycats?

The nap dress now has pockets!

This necklace looks like a conversation heart. Would be such a cute Galentine gift for a girlfriend… or yourself 😉

Why regret can actually be good.

I am very very into a cute one piece and a pareo for the beach and this one is so pretty!

A path to wellness: start by embracing the basics!

Love a good 5 ingredient recipe.

Oh my gosh I just love this green (Chanel-esque) cardigan – it’s perfection.

The most anticipated books of February.

In my cart: the sweetest little white blouse.

20 secret spots along California’s Pacific Coast Highway.

The best places to go in March.

Really love the shape of these gold earrings. So modern and elegant.

I can’t stop looking at the photos of Gwyneth Paltrow’s beautiful Montecito home.

How cute is Willow!?

    what a cool article on houses through the years, I can’t wait to share with my mom who was born in 1944 to see how this matched with her homes over the years.
