Happy weekend, friends! This week I finally got fully and 100% back into the swing of things, work-wise. I woke up excited and motivated every day this week, I finally got around to shooting some new outfits, and posted a new beauty favorites video to Youtube! I am keeping things pretty low key this weekend. I’m taking a yoga class with a girlfriend today, Jenn is visiting from Chicago (yay!) so we’re grabbing dinner tonight, but otherwise I’m just planning on getting as much exercise + R&R as possible – and my favorite things… reading + hitting a few museums up! Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great… stay warm! PS- I know everyone is doing the same but I can’t stop watching and rewatching Oprah’s speech over and over again. So. Inspiring.
I always get asked about whether rebranding is worth it. (Remember when I was “Stripes & Sequins?”) I shared my honest thoughts (alongside some favorite bloggers) in this post.
I am absolutely loving this emerald green cold shoulder sweater, and it’s only $62! (It comes in red and black too!)
Yet another reason to spend less time on social media – yikes!
Loved this (hilarious) article about sticking to your New Years Resolutions in mixed company. Being the “healthy one” or the “picky one” is hard!
I’m considering getting this copper globe for my desk.
Jenn finds the best walls!
My favorite pajamas – in green!
Holy moly, the grilled cheese of my dreams!
Oh my goodness. Princess Charlotte is just the cutest.
This wrap coat is so chic, and it’s a great price!
Really loved Liz’s goals for the New Year.
I’m going to need this sunny yellow dress (and a vacation?) ASAP.
Gahhh – I want to make this my travel bucket list, too!
I want this pretty duster (in yellow). Such a fun way to add a pop of color in this dreary weather.
Loved Geri’s roundup of products that will make 2018 better.
This bath mat is really, really awesome.
I was really inspired by Leandra’s beauty purge. Need to do the same.
Yummmm how good does this turkey bolognese recipe look!?
Super intrigued by La Mer’s sheet masks. As one would expect, they are verrrry expensive. Has anyone tried?
Totally agree with Dana… digital detoxes are important!
I love the looks of this chunky turtleneck sweater.
Blair is the cutest pink panther I’ve ever seen.
I finally scooped up the bright red Tuckernuck earrings I’d been crushing on.
Some thoughtful decorating tips.
Planning a getaway? This bag is PERFECTION.
A simple trick for being more photogenic.
Loved Mackenzie’s Cabo photos (and her stripes!)
I want this rattan chair for my apartment!
We both chopped our hair this year and I bookmarked Kathleen’s short hair styling tips.
Cozy, casual stripes.
Princess Charlotte is so darling! So cute! ❤️❤️
Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

I wasn’t on my phone at all yesterday until I got into bed. It was so nice! I saw you weren’t on Instagram either — seriously does make a difference!
