Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend, friends! But first… a birthday announcement – of sorts! 😉 The Stripe (formerly Stripes & Sequins and before that Perfectionist in Rehab!) turns 8 today. Happy birthday, sweet little blog of mine! I have a low key weekend ahead. Last night I managed a run and stayed in watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel… today I have morning yoga and then a few errands, and tomorrow I have more yoga and + an afternoon shoot. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great.. STAY WARMMM WHY IS IT SO COLD?!

I’m always hunting for cute tops that won’t break the bank and this one is a winner! (This one, too!)

Considering testing these morning routines..

I splurged on these rainbow kitty loafers this week. No regrets – they’re epic.

I LOVE Blair’s new “notepad” series!

No hangovers here but this cheesy cauliflower soup just sounds so good!

Always love a good wrap top.

It was fun to learn a little more about Carrie in this Q&A!

    Your ten ways to be positive links to a blog written by Neely Moldovan. She was found guilty of defamation for ruining photographers career on her blog and has to pay $1mil back…. I wish you’d research people before linking to them….

  5. I try to avoid meetings and calls on Monday if I can. So true. I think that’s the day that is important to catch up on all the things for the week.
