Weekend Reading.

Happy Weekend, friends! This was a fun week. The highlight was definitely getting to see an advanced screening of Beauty & The Beast on Tuesday night. Oh my goodness. It was so, so good – I was all but singing along in my chair. It was one of my Disney favorites growing up and I wasn’t entirely sure it would live up to the original, but ohhhhh it did! And yes, I cried. It opens on March 17th (next Friday)… definitely go see it! After the screening I spoke on a panel with Teen Vogue + some other influencers (Olivia, Cleo!) which was streamed on Teen Vogue’s Facebook Live. Besides all that, I also saw Moonlight with my friend Becca, attended a reading for my friend Felicia’s new book, went to a fun party with Callie Wines (+ Krystal and Christine) watched the THREE HOUR Bachelor episode on Monday (howww, but if you watched too – read this!) and just got ahead on work + stuff. I guess it was a kind of busy one!? 😉 I’m off to Charleston next week and absolutely cannot wait to be there.

PS – As a few of you have asked on twitter… my March reading list will be going up next Thursday but in the meantime I have added a few new books to my Book Club page!

Something I wholeheartedly agree with: Traveling alone will not make you feel lonely or sad!

This pretty A-Line dress is so perfect for Spring. I’d pair it with these sandals (so cute and only $60).

The strangest, most sublime places on earth (seriously breathtaking photos!)

Nine cult favorite French beauty products that you can buy on Amazon!

I really love this Self-Portrait mini skirt – it’s part utilitarian, part ultra girly.

A must-read: Am I Pretty?

How great is the row of tassels on this off-the-shoulder dress?

Sometimes fashion is just silly. Case in point: this giant bag from Balenciaga.

Basket bags at every price!

I had been feeling like I needed some cute new pajamas and placed a huge ASOS order. I sent about half of what I ordered back but this, this, and these were all winners!

Yum. This avocado chocolate pudding sounds divine – and relatively healthy.

I love love loved Jess’s San Francisco photos. That blue car!

My blush pink bow sneakers came in the mail this week and they are everything!

Jenna and I are both pretty excited about these holographic highlighters – so dreamy and ethereal.

I want this embellished cardigan in all three colors!

Loving Vogue’s 125th Anniversary Project – it’s much more inclusive than you’d expect.

The importance of taking a break.

I have too many little white dresses but I can’t stop thinking about this one.

Some of Paris Fashion Week’s best street style (and the metallic hue that everyone’s wearing).

The prettiest blush ruffle blouse. Would it be weird to wear head to toe blush all Spring long?

I was excited to be included in Sydne’s round-up of inspirational women. Such a cute post.

YUM – my friend Jamie shared this recipe for cacio e pepe eggs with me because she knows they’re one of my fav dishes at Maialino.

Love the gingham laces on these espadrilles.

Kat’s closet = pretty much neutral heaven.

Stripes, cold shoulder, and a cool lace-up front: this top has it all!

How fun are these linen floral loafers!?

I’ve been loving Carly’s Bermuda posts, especially this one – and she looks so happy and radiant!

Pretty in pink: love these suede heels.

For the NYC set (or if you’re planning a trip and want to up your instagram game)… I loved Jenn’s guide to the best colorful walls in New York!

Loved this dreamy look (shot at the LACMA – such a cool space) on Blair.

This lace off-the-shoulder-top is SO pretty.

Some refreshing words about beauty from your fav celebs.

I think I need this navy swing top.

    Wow at that giant bag. It looks like something from an art gallery or a bizarre social experiment.

      Haha totally, that is exactly what I thought – like it belonged in an art installation or something!
