Weekend Reading.

hiiiii from Charleston! It’s just a quick lil trip… I head back tomorrow night. I arrived Thursday afternoon and stayed at The Dewberry for my first night – it’s such a beautiful hotel! I’d been wanting to stay there forever and would definitely recommend it if you are planning to visit Charleston. From there, it was off to dinner at our usual spot – The Ordinary. At this point I actually think I have more close girlfriends in Charleston than New York which just feels so crazy to me! Everyone keeps moving out of New York as we get older (not that I blame them, the city can be so exhausting)! It’s definitely a better quality of life down here. For now I am perfectly content in Brooklyn but I love being able to come down and visit so often.

We had the best time out East last week and Carly did such a good job rounding up a little Montauk Travel Guide!

I’ve been wearing the lipstick in this set pretty much non stop. It’s the perfect nude.

I loved Julia’s Summer Reading List – so many good ones (I want to read Startup!)

I usually reserve my slow cooker for hearty winter dishes… I want to try these summer slow cooker recipes! Yum.

How perfect is this little gingham wrap dress!?

Ummm… how insane is this giant rainbow rice crispy cake!?

The pom poms on these cute flats are just beyond.

These photos of Krystal are stunning and I love her philosophy on New York date nights.

I really like the looks of this strawberry gin fiz.

Crushing on this off the shoulder dress.. the only question: pink or blue?

Expert approved hair products.

Love these simple Greek sandals.

Julia’s Nantucket photos are so dreamy!

So now I really want lemon wallpaper. This entryway makeover is stellar!

The cutest dress for hot days – and it’s only $32!

The best ways to eliminate sleep anxiety.

I love the snuggly cut of this oversized top.

Yikes: Beauty ingredients to avoid.

Make these recipes before summer is over!

How pretty are these flower earrings!?

Kat’s photos from Provence are dreamy… oh to frolic in the lavender fields!!

I love the dramatic silhouette of this ruffled pink maxi skirt.

Chassity looks so beautiful in this floral dress.

Books that double as decor.

The prettiest tassels… in primary colors which are my fav for summer!

I liked Man Repeller’s review of that instagram famous bra.

This pretty maxi went on sale and I’m thinking about scooping it up.

How pretty is this all pink look on Jenn!?

Pretty excited to try all the new Halo top flavors

This palm tree lamp is everrrrything. So much cooler than the ones I bought from PB Teen… wahhh.

    I actually really like looking at insane cakes. But whether I’d really like to eat them… hm, that’s that different story!

    I’m so jealous that you get to bop around to Charleston so often! I’ve been once but it was for work so I only got to do minimal exploring.

    Neeeeed to try those summer crock pot recipes.
