Weekend Reading.

weekend reading | 10.21.17 | the stripe blog

Happy weekend! This was a hectic work week, getting settled after being away for a week. I really don’t know how other bloggers do it… traveling for weeks on end, living out of a suitcase for that long. I’m a total disaster after even just a week away! That being said, I’m really proud of the travel vlog I filmed in London. I’m working on my video from the countryside next and feeling inspired to create more travel videos for you. I hope you’ll watch and let me know what you think if you have a free minute! This weekend will be a low key one which is always nice after a busy week away. There are lots of fun links for you… I hope you enjoy! xoxo

Really into this pared back vibe. It’s simple and chic and always classic.

I love the twist back on this cozy sweater.

A big congrats to Julia on her gorgeous rug collab with Lulu & Georgia – it’s so dreamy!

Space NK has a really, really good gift with purchase going on right now!

I am also currently crushing on berets. I have a big head so it’s probably going to be hard to find a good one but I’m determined!

Having always wanted to go, I loved Jacey’s photos from Dubai.

Congrats to BaubleBar on their new fine jewelry line! I’ve got my eye on this necklace and these hoops.

New to blogging or just getting started? Carly gave a great interview on growing your audience.

Another day, another tie-sleeve sweater. Loving this one!

A bunch of interior bloggers got together to do a “no makeup home tour.” It was fun seeing their homes without all the styling.

How to make your home feel clean in fifteen minutes or less.

The feathers on this $119 dress make it feel one of a kind.

Love Carly’s Fall uniform (probably because mine is identical!)

Really into tops with built in chokers and this sweater is so chic (and a great price.)

Mackenzie has a new 101 in 1001 days list! I love this idea.

What a cool way to display your favorite coffee table book!

I’ve been salivating over these diamond earrings since my trip with Monica Vinader.

I want to try this berry lip stain.

This dramatic dress is so fun! Now to decide… red, or blue!?

This butternut + apple soup sounds SO good!

I loved this cozy fall look on Blair. Her velvet bag is so good!

My fav twist hem tee now with long sleeves!

Julia looks so cute in this comfy Fall outfit. I have that sweater too (in cream) and can attest, it’s the best!

OMG. Epic rainbow sequin bag!

Jealous of Bradley’s little red bag. It’s perfect!

Helena shared her Fall wardrobe staples and I want them all!

The coziest looking chunky turtleneck.

I always love Liz’s beauty posts.

This faux shearling jacket is really chic and a fun shade of pink.

In love with this sweet hair bow DIY!

Well this is sort of the best thing ever – a Prosecco advent calendar!

An ultra affordable mini dress in my favorite color!

Habits that will put you in a better mood.

I’m on a never ending search for more cute tops. Love this pink blouse!

Love how Carrie matched her outfit to this rose mural.

Jenn’s photos from polo were pretty dreamy. Her dress is literally perfect for it!

The perfect Fall booties – at a great price.

Meg’s hot air balloon ride! So cool!

I ordered this sweater (in emerald green, my fav) this week.

I’m loving Kat’s suede trench! Such a great piece for Fall.

    I love the whole no makeup home tour concept. It’s so refreshing to see a more genuine side of bloggers!

    Why you ALWAYS link to She’s in The Glow even though she posts like once a month at best? Once she married up posting became far from a priority…

      Wow, that’s not very nice! I link to Annie’s site because (though I wish she would post more too!), I love her content – it’s always thoughtfully done and well researched.

    Wow, that prosecco advent calendar is a really cool idea!! If I lived with someone I saw on a regular basis I’d definitely order it (my boyfriend works nights & weekends and I work a Mon-Fri 9-5, so it basically feels like living alone, and I don’t think I could justify that type of purchase for just myself).

      I totally agree. I would buy it as well but I really don’t need to encourage any more unhealthy habits during the holidays… there are already enough! 😉
