Weekend Reading.

The Stripe: Weekend Reading List | 12.3.16
coat // pouch // dress // heels

Helllllo from somewhere in Latin America! As I write this (late Friday night) I am somewhere between Cartagena and Panama. Yesterday afternoon I boarded Celebrity Cruises’ Equinox ship for my first cruise (ever!!) out of Cartagena (possibly one of the coolest cities I’ve visited) and this morning, we are docking in Panama for the day. Today, for my “excursion,” I am visiting a monkey jungle in Colon – I can’t wait! I’m really enjoying the cruise so far… the other bloggers on the trip are really nice, and I’m getting to see a lot of new-to-me places. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great… happy weekending! XO – Grace

Chic holiday decor that isn’t over the top, tacky, or expensive!

Loved this look on Christine – how to elevate your look with simple accessories!

Have you seen Lilly Pulitzer’s new pajamas? SO cute!!!

My mom sent me this. Clarity comes from stepping away.

This ultra soft v-neck sweater just went on sale and I am pretty sure I need it in every color?

Something I am super passionate about: how to create the perfect cheese plate!

I loved Julia’s entryway makeover – that cobalt blue!!!!

The coziest looking cold shoulder sweater. Bonus points for the under $100 price tag.

I’m so curious to try this haircare routine – I always really trust Annie’s beauty advice!

The importance of physical touch.

Obsessing over this leopard print dress. It’s in my cart but I haven’t hit “purchase.” Wondering if it would be cute (or overkill) under a leopard coat…

How cute is Mackenzie in her sailor skirt? Love this classic outfit.

Put a bow on it with these chic under $100 sandals. #partyshoes!

Chassity has the most beautiful home… I loved this Fall tablescape she put together. (Can I come over?)

Best jacket ever: blush pink, faux fur lining… what’s not to love!?

Mmmm… there’s nothing like mulled wine this time of year!

Five fun ways to decorate for the holidays.

I’m not typically a big ruffles person but this dress is covered in them – and it’s amazing.

Loved this classic look on Kat. (And I’m dying to stay at the Soho Farmhouse!)

Will’s dining nook makeover is amazing – and has me wanting to paint one of my walls black!

How pretty is Jenn in this pink satin midi dress?! One of my fav looks of hers!

Festive tassel earrings that will probably make you want to dance.
