Weekend Reading | 2.9.19

Happy weekend! These days I seem to only have two modes: stop (Netflix, read, nephew time in Minnesota) and go (party party, fashion week, running around like a maniac). I got back from Minnesota on Tuesday night and transitioned swiftly from stop into go. One of my best friends stayed with me Weds and Thurs because it was our other best friend’s 40th birthday party on Wednesday night. That meant a fancy dinner party at Chinese Tuxedo to celebrate her on Weds PM and then a whole bunch of running around the city this week! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great. XOXO

Weekend Reading | 2.9.19

Good advice if you want to sleep better. I need to actually listen to this!

This double breasted camel coat is so chic. Such a good wardrobe staple.

Oh WOW – this article about the author of The Woman in the Window is stranger than fiction! I went down a total rabbit hole with this one.

I’m definitely intrigued by these at home DIY face masks.

I’m partnering with Stitchfix this month. I got my first delivery and am obsessed so far. (See more of what I got on my instagram stories and check them out here!)

The benefits of salt lamps. I have one by my bed and need to use it more!

I’ve been reaching for this product a LOT lately when I need a little glow. Still a holy grail fav!

Jess’s blog content has been SO good this week. I loved her capsule wardrobe post (even though as I mentioned I’ll never be a capsule wardrobe person!) and I LOVED learning more about these sustainable designers.

A dying mother’s letter to her children. So sad.

I love this chic lace tunic.

How to ask for something from an old acquaintance or friend without coming across as insincere.

I got these red slingbacks this week and LOVE them. Such a cute pop of red and really comfy!

The most clever trick for hanging a picture.

A thoughtful essay about age from Victoria.

These sandals aren’t in my price range for a “fun” shoe, but oh… they are magic!

Loved reading Helena’s favorite beauty purchases – really respect her reviews and opinions!

BaubleBar’s new fruit collection is so fun. I love these watermelon slices.

On gaining weight.

(And I loved this body positivity quote.)

Have you heard of The Sil? They’re new to me but stock some amazing pieces from designers I hadn’t heard of. (And they have a Beverly Hills Hotel collection – to die for.)

LOVED Krystal’s funny face series. She’s so creative!

The perfect (under $100!) mom meets boyfriend jeans.

Loved Mackenzie’s Charleston photos. (Jealous!)

Oh wow… so these exist. NSFW and slightly crass so be forewarned but a friend sent me the site and I thought it was hilarious.

VERY into these pearl hoop earrings.

Reasons why baths are good for you!

Not boots, but not a heel – I like the look of these!

Why you should stop scheduling your free time – this makes so much sense.

Beauty advice from an unexpected place.

    Great list! The New Yorker article is so good, thanks for the rec. I read his novel last year, and after reading this I feel slightly duped – and at the same time a bit superior for not absolutely loving the book.

      Hahaha and I feel slightly inferior as I really loved the book!

    WHOA! That article about AJ Finn/Dan Mallory is a fascinating read. That needs to be written into a novel!

    Great post! All the things you linked were great. I especially loved the one with the sleep tips. I have a bad habit of playing on my phone till I get tired. This habit is so bad I need to break it!! I hope you have a great week!
