Weekend Reading.


Things that are scary: today is October 1st. How did that happen!? Sometimes it just feels like time is going by wayyyy too fast. But anyway. I am so excited for a low key weekend. The only real plans I have are going to the Mr. Brainwash show (he’s one of my faves) with my cousin this morning, and an orientation with New York Cares tomorrow afternoon (I’ve been saying that I’m going to start volunteering forever now and am so excited to actually get started)! I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday week. I got to see so many of my favorite people, and celebrate a LOT. But now I’m tired. Yesterday afternoon I got a massage and finished watching Stranger Things (such a good show!!) and now I’m ready for a productive weekend of cleaning, getting caught up on accounting + Quickbooks, and just overall getting my sh*t together. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab! XOXO

PS – the photo above was from my Charleston birthday party. I can’t wait to share more photos with you next week!

Some spot on first date advice.

Surely I don’t need another lace top… but how good is this one!?

Organization tips from my sister!

The ultimate Fall wardrobe.

The prettiest little blush flats – I love the glossy leather!

The best dark lipsticks to wear this Fall.

Need this (under $100) cashmere tunic to wear with my fave faux leather leggings! (The leggings happen to be on sale right now, FYI!)

A cute and classic look on Jenn.

Love Taza’s easy beauty routine.

I ordered this ($60!) pink faux leather jacket after Hallie posted it on Instagram last night. Fingers crossed!!

Another really cool DIY from Will – this painted rope headboard!

Looking for the perfect everyday bag for Fall? You’re welcome.

Tickets to the NY Comedy Festival just went on sale – I really want to see Bill Maher.

Loved Carly’s Nantucket photos.

Did you see this video + fundraiser from Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Tom Brady? Three of my faves… hilarious.

How chic is this cropped blazer!?

Loved this chic, classic Fall look on Kat.

I loved learning more about Julia’s favorite beauty products. We share so many favorites!

The mullet of sweaters – obsessed with the open back on this one!

Beautiful photos of my friend Christine – love her romper!!

Sale alert! A chic camel coat that happens to be nearly half off!

Totally obsessed with Chassity’s colorblocked top.

I loved reading Annie’s (very elaborate) pre-wedding beauty routine.

I’m not sure if I’m cool enough to pull off mom jeans… but this pair is pretty great.

    Can’t wait for the birthday post! So awesome you finished Stranger Things. You dug it I’m assuming? The next sci-fi show I’m watching is on HBO. Premieres Sunday. It’s called Westworld. Check out the trailer! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX3u0IlBBO4

    Love the organization tips from your sister!!

    Those leggings I need to try on. They look awesome but afraid of the fit.

      So glad! She’s a smarty pants.

      The leggings are surprisingly awesome. They hold you in and are nice and long. I’ve never met anyone that looks bad in them and I mean it! But def try them on first if you have a Nordstrom or Spanx store nearby! Really hope you give ’em a try! xx
