Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend friends! I hope your week was a good one. Mine was packed with work after being away but I am looking forward to a low key weekend. A birthday party for my cousin, yoga, getting to Shapehouse, maybe a museum or two… keeping things nice and low key. Admittedly I have a bunch of work to do but at least it will be at a slower pace. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab – lots of good links for you this week! Also, be sure to pop by my sister’s blog and read my interview with her (it’s all about bedtime!!) and enter our giveaway. xoxo

So happy that this knot front top finally comes in stripes! So cute.

YAY Teen Vogue – really loved this article on the lack of diversity in street style photos (this has bothered me for some time now) and I also loved seeing my friend Lydia quoted in it!!

I am SO excited for Amy Schumer’s new movie.. the trailer looks amazing and hilarious.

Adore the sweet daisy embroidery on this sweatshirt.

I’m so curious to try the Hanacure mask – have you guys done it?

LOVE this $54 dress… it’s the perfect basic.

Loved seeing Nicolette on The Coveteur… her home is a Gucci/rainbow/sparkle lover’s dream!!!

I’m not supposed to be buying coats right now but this emerald green topper is just too fun!

How FUN is this candy filled cake!? It looks pretty easy to make, too!

Scalloped, strappy sandals (in the prettiest shade of blush pink… also – try saying that 10x fast!)

WHOA – this piece about work life balance really hit home.

This striped jumpsuit is just the cutest. Need it for my trip to Cartagena!

Okay so now I’m really curious about mushroom hot chocolate.

This room gives me all the feels. Such gorgeous design.

This tulle dress is a lot of look but so fun – wish I had somewhere special to wear it!!

Mackenzie has me wanting to go to the Berkshires!

This under $100 midi dress would be perfect for vacation.

Only Blair could look this chic wearing all of these layers! Loved this look on her.

Chassity looks so pretty in this little white dress.

Now I’m inspired to do a bit of collaging this weekend….

OMG these bow sandals!!

How to rock a turtleneck if you have big boobs.

This is so cool: an architect couple living in a space ship.

    That work life balance article was great. I always talk about the seasons of life and recognizing that some things will be centre stage and other burners will have to be cut off and that is ok.

    These all look like great links! I love collaging… just recently made a “Dream board” magazine kind of collage for class and it was so fun.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the Amy Schumer movie. I’m sure that some sort of ~it’s what’s on the inside that counts~ message will come out in the end, but the trailer makes me very apprehensive. I found confidence and strength and community at SoulCycle, and I don’t like that the base joke of this movie is “a woman who looks like this isn’t beautiful” or that the message in the trailer is that it takes a literal head injury in order to find herself beautiful.

      I heqr you. It will be interesting to see the actual movie and which angle she goes with it. Have a feeling it will be uplifting and have a good message.
