Weekend Reading.

How was your week? Mine was pretty great (except for yesterday’s yucky weather – where are those May flowers!?) Have you watched Girlboss on Netflix? That was my binge-watch this week. I wasn’t sure if I would like it but I love Britt Robinson. Besides, after watching 13 Reasons Why and starting The Handmaid’s Tale I needed something light and easy to watch. This was just the thing. Sophia’s character is a bit annoying and unlikeable but it’s still a fun show. As I mentioned yesterday I have my first houseguest (my friend Deirdre!) and while I still don’t have most of my furniture it’s been so fun having company. Annnnd on that note, I just found out that my dining room table and chairs will arrive next week – hooray! Anyway, whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great! Happy weekend, friends!

What happens when your honeymoon sucks?!

Rebecca Taylor does it again.

Ahhh, the good old “Situationship.” Is it ruining romance? (Probably.)

How cozy does this twist front tee look? I ordered it in gray and white this week.

The best beauty tips come from moms.

Loooove this off-the-shoulder dress from Free People! The embroidery/print is so pretty.

Eek – how amazing does Julia’s kitchen remodel look?! Love!

Ummm these palm tree highball glasses need to be in my apartment immediately.

I love how Chassity’s Schumacher chairs turned out – that striped fabric is exquisite.

Yum! This guacamole recipe sounds sooooo good.

Someone please invite me to a garden party so that I can buy this dress.

Merritt’s new house is looking so good. I love the progress photos; it’s fun following the process.

I love the print on this sweater!

Mackenzie’s eyelet top is so cute – and a great price.

Loved these tassels and pom poms on Jenn!

In love with these striped espadrilles.

  1. I’m considering starting 13 Reasons Why since I’m nearly done with Big Little Lies now, but I’ve heard mixed reviews about it… hmm.

  3. Glad to hear you are liking Girlboss. I watched the first couple of episodes and couldn’t get super into it, but I think I will keep watching to see if it hooks me.

    • Yeah, it definitely got better. It’s cute but more of a nice breather between all those dramas.

    Heads up that most of the links I clicked on routed to the BaubleBar necklace!

    That toucan sweater link actually links to an article about a severed foot!

    • I am so sorry about that – there was a glitch with the tool i use to pull links… it wasn’t copying any of them… All fixed now!

    Hi Grace! FYI, your Rebecca Taylor and twist front tee links are redirecting to a Baublebar necklace πŸ™‚

    • I am so sorry about that – there was a glitch with the tool i use to pull links… I should have double checked everything – oops! It’s all fixed now.

    The link for the toucan sweater routes to a story on a severed foot (yikes)!!

    • oh gosh so sorry about that – there was a glitch with the tool i use to pull links… (and i’d been reading that story about the foot in charleston – gross!) Sorry to send you there! πŸ˜‰

    Love this weekly feature and always look forward to it. I just wanted to let you know there are still a couple of glitches. The Cardigan leads to the statement necklace and, the statement necklace routes to the severed foot article. Hope you have a good weekend.

    • Hi Lori! I think it might be a caching issue as I just checked on my computer and the links are properly linked. So sorry about the glitches earlier! xx

  10. The toucan sweater is adorable.

    It’s a hard call knowing when to answer emails. I like it when they give me a deadline: by the end of the week, ASAP, at your convenience, etc.

    • I totally agree. Usually I am pretty on top of mine, but then all I have to do is take one day off to get myself into a problem – my inbox can fill up so quickly if not careful!

  11. I couldn’t even make it through one episode of Girlboss. The character is SO unlikeable. One of the worst characters ever written IMHO.


    5.6.17 Reply
    • I agree that she is so so unlikeable! I still couldn’t stop watching!!! Funny enough now I’m getting caught up on GIRLS – and those ladies are just as unlikeable, though a bit more real and relatable.

  12. I’ve been meaning to start the Girlboss series, it sounds like it would be so good! I also found that email about not replying for delayed email responses quite interesting!

    I think the situationship” is all too real for many people. You deserve the best and only you can give it to yourself. Please choose, don’t just settle for anyone that comes your way. “show people how to treat you” ( the golden rule) is some of the best advice ever given to me by a mentor. This works for friends and lovers. Thanks for all the weekend picks Grace! Love your dining table!

    5.7.17 Reply
    • That’s such good advice. My friend says something similar… “When people show you who they are… listen!”

      • Cy:

        So true too! Or watch what does, not what he says…..

  14. Hey Grace! Thanks for linking to my Google maps post – just fyi the link is going to the “situationship” post. Hope to see ya around the city soon! xoxo

    • JFC – I was really off my game this week. Sorry about that – it’s now fixed! xoxo

  15. The comments down here about the link going to an article about a severed foot are cracking me up. That is hilarious. Gotta find that article now…. lol
