Weekend Reading.

happy Weekend! Okay first of all, how good does that bagel look!? Want. But presently on the wagon due to wayyyyy too much indulging while in London. But really, what is better than a bagel with lox? Second: how is today already July 1st? I can’t be the only one who is left wondering where June went! It feels crazy that Tuesday is the 4th of July. I haven’t figured out what I’m doing yet but I’m thinking my plan will likely involve fireworks and eating/drinking something delicious outside. I hope you have a great weekend. I don’t have much planned. I was originally planning to head out to the Hamptons, but I decided to stay home in favor of relaxing and getting caught back up on work, life, etc!

How amazing is this red maxi dress? I ordered it this week…

Loved seeing Jess’s kitchen makeover video. It was fun how she documented the process… and the end result is so lovely!

I’m completely obsessed with this emerald green wrap dress. I mean, it basically matches my apartment?

Chassity looks so pretty in this little white eyelet dress.

After much deliberating (and a bit of saving) I ordered my office desk + chair this week. I’m so, so obsessed with both pieces.

Loved Julia’s wellness philosophy – agree with so much of what she said.

The CUTEST under $100 yellow dress.

How to make your next flight a little healthier.

A new spot to buy fit & flare dresses – love this one on Mackenzie!

Speaking of fit & flare dresses, I want this one!!! The print is everything.

Loved these Dirty Dancing-inspired summer style rules… so good.

Free People can do no wrong right now – I need this jumpsuit in every color!

These Forever 21 pieces look wayyyy more expensive than they actually are.

I love the idea of planning a girls’ wellness weekend away, like Kat did.

Ulla Johnson does it again.. love this one.

The Parisian version of self-care.

The print on this top looks like a work of art.

Two words: Melt-proof makeup.

Have you heard of melting lip powder? After reading this, I’m tempted to try it!

How pretty are the tassels on this ($68) white top!?

Loved this white dress on Liz – and we have the same sandals!

How stunning is this black and white maxi dress?

Stripes on stripes! Loved this fun look on Jenn.

Carly looks so chic in this simple outfit.

Yum. These boozy watermelon floats sound so good!!

I scooped up this blue and white maxi dress on sale this week – Love!

Why you should actually procrastinate more.

The prettiest powder blue midi dress. I love this color!

Now this is a pretty epic travel bucket list

Pretty sure I need a pineapple beverage dispenser for my next soiree!

My time in London has made me think I need proper teacups and saucers. Aren’t these soooo pretty!?

Do you actually need toner?

The scalloped edges on these espadrilles are so sweet.

This blog has become one of my daily reads and though I’m a couple years older, I loved her thoughts on turning 33.
