Weekend Reading.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that makes me feel a little old. I remember when I lived in Boston (and the first few years of living in New York) where I’d put on my best green outfit, and hit the town for a long day of day drinking (green beer! green punch!) with my friends. We looked forward to it all year! Oh, how times have changed (nowadays I specifically avoid bars on St. Patrick’s Day but maybe I’d take a green juice and a seaweed green soak?) Ha. It’s fun to reminisce and the Facebook memories that pop up today are always hilarious. I’m spending this weekend with my family as my parents are in town! We have a few fun dinners planned and I’m not sure what else! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab! Stay warm and let’s all keep wishing for Spring temps to show up – can you believe that Tuesday is the first day???

I thought this was really interesting: the history of leopard print.

The prettiest wrap dress (in 3 patterns but I love the dots!) for under $100.

Um, did y’all catch Jenna Lyons’ closet sale!?

I’m totally obsessed with how Will styled my sister’s bedding! It’s absolutely perfect in his beach house.

I love a good little red dress and this one is so chic.

What to do if you’ve been ghosted. (Also: why people do it.)

Love the tassels + texture on this (very well priced!) beach bag

How Marie Kondo gets everything done.

This tiny apartment is really nicely decorated!

This trench is movie star cool (I’d pair with giant sunglasses and high heels) but a great price.

Mackenzie is so cute in stripes.

Chic AF loafers for only $62.50. J.Crew Factory does it again!

The keys to a successful life. (Also just love this outfit on Meghan!)

Sometimes the simplest outfits are the best ones!

I ordered this cozy looking open weave sweater and cannot wait to layer it over all my favorite camis + tanks.

Audrey’s best Givenchy looks. RIP, Hubert.

The botanical print on this dress is so good. Very Dolce Gabbana, at a much better price.

OMG Erica’s guest bedroom is just all out amazing. So much fun pattern.

Hitha’s got me reconsidering the slip dress.

As naps are my favorite I’m pretty sure I need this sweatshirt.

These products will make you sleep better.

I need this little yellow wrap dress in my life… so fun and girly!

Great advice for getting over a breakup.

This colorful look is double the fun on Blair.

I surely need these red sunglasses, no?

Whoa – makes me want to try facial yoga.

The perfect casual dress. It came in the mail this week and everything about it is good. The fit, the color, it’s perfect.

Geri’s living room is CHIC.

Next time I go to Palm Springs I want to stay HERE!

It’s a bit random but I’m totally obsessed with this body mask/scrub. Left my skin SO SOFT.

Read this if you have a hard time getting up in the morning.

This straw bucket bag is positively darling.

Chassity and Gray are so cute in this feature!

Really loved Krista’s guide to shopping on eBay. I buy a lot on eBay too and agree w/all her tips!

How sweet is this chevron striped dress?
