Weekend Reading.

Happy Weekend! As I mentioned on Wednesday, I took a quick little trip down to Charleston for my parents’ anniversary and my friend’s Halloween party. The party was last night and I fly home this afternoon. It was a fun little trip… the perfect mix of seeing friends and getting work done. I filmed a video while I was here, and shot a bunch of outfit photos that I can’t wait to share with you next week. The weather down here is perfect. I heard it’s been cold and rainy back in New York… do I really have to go home? Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope it’s great. AND STRANGER THINGS IS BACK!!! If you can’t tell, I’m really, really excited about that. 😉

Madewell just launched a “beauty cabinet” and I love everything they chose – the selection is on point.

Loving this metallic skirt – the price is fantastic too!

I really want to try this Japanese restaurant – sounds so cool (and it’s in my neighborhood!)

For the cat lovers – Oh my god, check out this miniature furniture for cats.

Prettiest phone case ever?

How happy and perfect does Liz’s family trip to the apple orchard look? Such a cute, heartwarming post.

They’re kinda crazy but I can’t stop thinking about these sequin boots!

Jenn looks amazing in this gorgeous sequin dress. I can’t believe it’s only $158.

Crushing on this (under $100!) ruffle dress.

For the bloggers! Hallie sent me this article about influencers + sponsored posts. I thought it was really really interesting… lots of good data which can be rare in this world.

Also for the bloggers: my amazing designers have started selling the most gorgeous pre-made themes!!! If you want to give your site a refresh (on the cheap), this is a great option.

Bows on toes! These pretty pink flats are so sweet.

As someone who always chooses a window seat, this made me laugh.

The prettiest tent dress I ever did see.

I loved reading Mackenzie’s thoughts about changing her name after marriage.

My latest instagram obsession

The heel of these pumps is a miniature work of art. Ohhhh, Ferragamo…

The new “cool girl” beauty essentials. I have tried a lot of them but need to try the rest.

Pretty sure I need this velvet + lace dress for at least one of my holiday parties…

Classic mules at a great price.

Loved this dramatic look on Blair.

Love this faux leather jacket in navy – can’t believe it’s under $100!

I want to cozy up in these comfy throw blankets.

I always get sick in the winter so will def be giving this immunity boosting smoothie a try!

Need this cozy pink sweater.

The bedtime routines of successful people!

Want this leopard mini.

How to be the healthy friend who isn’t obnoxious about it.

I never thought about the environmental impact of plastic straws. Such an easy change to make!

I got these heels (in blue!) this week and can’t believe how comfortable they are.

Not sure what I love more: Kat’s all white outfit or the dreamy pink and green backdrop!? Made me think of @plantsonpink.

After reading about Kathleen’s favorite slimming denim, I need to try them!

Loved this classic look on Carly.

  1. So much yes for that article on being a unobnoxious healthy friend! I’ve had friends who were into “health trends” and wouldn’t stop blabbering on about it to the rest of us. *rolls eyes*

      Hahahahha I’ve been that friend before. The article made me laugh. Maybe you can subtly send it to your friends.

    Uhm, I’m claustrophobic so I don’t particularly like window seats but my personality could be similar to those who like them…
    I have the same Press for Champagne frame, too cute!
