Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend and greetings from Belfast! It was a whirlwind week… I spent Monday through Thurs AM in London + Norfolk with the Monica Vinader team and then flew to Belfast to spend time with friends. I head back to the US tomorrow afternoon! Anyway – how chic is she? This outfit inspires me to buy some gold satin ribbon to dress up an old white shirt. Wouldn’t that make for a chic way to dress up an old shirt? Separately, I made two new really wonderful friends this trip – Kathleen and Cait. Be sure to check out their beautiful blogs!!

So um, apparently, fried chicken pants are a major thing now. All the LOLz but also I’m confused?

A cozy cowl sweater that will be absolutely perfect for layering!

Travel destinations for book lovers.

Love this vibrant red look on Blair.

LOVE these personalized clutches!

I’m such a sucker for these ITG interviews: Victoria Beckham’s beauty routine.

Put a bow on it with these super cute sneakers!

Probably the best roundup of Halloween costume ideas I’ve seen yet. So many good ones!

How to spend less!

I scooped up this velvet camisole (in emerald green) and absolutely LOVE it.

These smoothie bowl recipes look so yummy!

This simple $29 ribbon pin will make any jacket/sweater/blazer look like it’s Gucci!

Loved Jenn’s Fall boot edit.

Totally drooling over Will’s beach house – first the kitchen, then the bedroom!

How dreamy is this (really affordable) satin wrap dress!? Love the color.

I really love Monica Lewinsky’s anti-bullying campaign… and her advice for Melania.

This $75 (faux) suede blouse is so chic. Would go with everything!

Loved Kathleen’s (gorgeous) tips for mixing metals and entertaining.

I adore Jacey’s video content… her first Chanel show was so fun to watch – I felt like I was there!

Not entirely sure I could rock these pink velvet boots, but they are pretty gorgeous.

LOVED this Fall outfit (and all of the pumpkins!) on Cait.

Is it too early to think about holiday outfits? Because this lace dress is pretty perfect.

Mackenzie is the one who convinced me to try a keratin treatment. Loved reading her experience, here!

How my favorite custom jackets are made. Loved this piece on my friend Hart!

Love the built in choker on this simple dress.

How cool is Lucy Williams’ new vintage jewelry collab?!

This metallic dress is comfy AND cute.

This (pumpkin free!) Halloween centerpiece is pretty epic.

Loved Julia’s photos and post from one year in Charleston.

The sleeves on this sweet satin top are so gorgeous!

Yummmmm – Kat’s pumpkin soup sounds divine!

Looking for the perfect leopard coat? I found it, you’re welcome.

And so it seems that I need this perfect white tee? Thanks, Man Repeller!

Six gorgeous Fall coats!

Utterly obsessed with these metallic, emerald green loafers… and they’re only $132!

This gold top is perfect for any party. Just add skinny black pants or a cute skirt.
