Weekend Reading.

weekend reading 3.4.17: the best of the web | The Stripe

Happy Weekend, friends! This was a busy week. One really fun thing I did was see Sunday in the Park with George on Broadway, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. I loved it. It’s set in Paris, and revolves around a struggling artist and his relationships. After the show I got to meet Jake (see also: twitter) and that was pretty neat. The show is only playing for ten weeks (until 4/23), so if you are in the city and able to get tickets I would highly recommend it. This weekend is going to be a fun one. Last night I attended a secret concert in Soho with Sofar Sounds (so cool!) and tonight a good friend is turning forty and throwing a massive party (with a Gaultier/sailor theme) so we are doing that… otherwise, it’s just a pretty standard weekend. My kitchen is stocked and I plan to spend as much time as possible hibernating and reading under a blanket… is that lame?! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great! Xoxo! (PS – I filmed a funny little spoof with Christine and my pals at The Daily Front Row earlier this week during Coterie – check it out right this way.. still laughing!)

Crushing on this red eyelet shift dress right now.

So proud of my friend Julia and the gorgeous hat she designed.

Topshop does it again! I love the feminine ruffles on this otherwise edgy top. It’s the perfect date night/going out top.

My sister was in the New York Times! So cool.

What this nutritionist wants you to ban from your kitchen… but also: very bad news for my fellow cheese-lovers. This piece has me seriously considering giving up dairy.

Got an event? This feminine off-the-shoulder dress comes in several colors, and it’s under $100!

Some interesting food for thought: why one woman has never had a cell phone, and never will!

This is an older post from Victoria but a good one. If finding balance between work + life is hard for you, read it NOW! (Especially good for the freelance/self-employed set.)

I ordered these slip on sneakers this week (in blush). Love the oversized bow!

I randomly came across this on Facebook and it’s a great story: Meryl Streep’s tragic romance. Made me cry.

How cute are these silky PJs? They’re a great price too.

Something I actually googled: how to knot your workout top. (Think maybe I need some longer tanks – can’t seem to “get” this one down.)

Pretty rainbow slides that make such a fabulous statement.

How dreamy is my friend Kat’s West Village apartment?

I’m a little bit intrigued by this cleanse – have any of you tried Dirty Lemon?

How fantastic are these Miu Miu earrings!? Want. I’m tempted to try and DIY ’em but am unsure how to even approach it.

This (sadly) sums up my feelings on Snapchat. I almost exclusively use Instagram stories (except for my workouts) – it’s so much easier to just put everything in one place!

Ooh! I love the cute ruffles on this tee.

Emma Stone’s Oscars Makeup. I have that Sisley mask and plan on using it before a big night to plump up my skin, going forward.

Loved this pink eyelet dress on Jenn… and that she styled it three different ways!

Embroidered t-shirts are proving to be a huge trend for Spring – I love this striped “amour” one.

A scientific explanation of how/why Saint Laurent’s weird fashion week shoes didn’t break.

A pretty cold shoulder top that’s only $49! But also… palm trees.

The best tops for Spring.

I completely agree with Annie’s thoughts on May Lindstrom – these are two of my all time favorite products.

OMG this pom pom pouch.

All of the YUM. I pinned this recipe for homemade French onion soup and can’t wait to make it.

Needle & Thread does it again – this dress is fit for a princess.

Thanks to a reader comment on this post, I signed up for The Polar News – it’s an excellent way to get the news – told from both sides; left + right.

Merritt had some great tips and tricks for wearing your white denim NOW. I love her sweater and shoes!

I love the longer length (and the relatively affordable price) on this leather jacket.

Loved seeing Jacey’s twelve wardrobe staples – and the pics of her dreamy closet (which is the actual size of my apartment, ha!)

Mackenzie looks so pretty in this classic ensemble (want her bag!)

    Ugh, now I can’t have cheese? At this point I think we’re left with kale dust and dirty lemon water… this seems unfair.

    I love the ruffled topshop top! Ann Taylor has some similar long sleeve, not mock-neck tops: https://www.anntaylor.com/tops/cata000010?pcid=cata00002.
