Weekend Reading.


Happy Weekend. I am in Charleston with my parents! (Trying to convince them to move here, ha ha.) This week was busy but also a lot of fun. On Wednesday I got to see an advanced screening of Amy Schumer’s movie, I Feel Pretty… on Thursday, I attended a very chic party with Vogue + Armani at The Whitney to celebrate Armani’s new fragrance, and yesterday I flew to Charleston! It was also the first week since Cartagena where I felt on top of my sh*t again! My apartment has been a revolving door of friends + family… between that + the flu + launching our podcast, I’ve just felt very scattered! The best weeks for me are the weeks where I have a lot of time at my desk to sit and plan and work, and this was just that! But annnnyway, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Whatever you’re up to I hope it’s great! xoxo

This is the best chili I’ve ever tasted. My friend was staying at my apartment this week and he made it for me and it is SO GOOD! I can’t wait to make it.

LOVE the back of this tee! So cute.

My kind of pairings: wine and face masks!

A fun new podcast about the history of fashion.

YAY – Madewell’s beautiful leather tote (best work bag) now comes in 5 pretty colors.

The sweetest (under $100!) eyelet dress. NEED.

Loved these productivity tips.

Holy crap, how amazing does this hotel look?

If you follow my IG stories, you know how much I’m obsessed with this “filter.” Gonna talk more about it on the blog this week but I use it in lieu of foundation or tinted moisturizer for glowy AF skin.

This miso glazed salmon recipe looks really yummy – and easy.

Have you seen Shopbop’s matching sets page? I literally want everything.

Really liked this ode to espadrilles (with so many pretty options!)

A clever tip for getting high quality cashmere sweaters for less!

The prettiest yellow tassel earrings!

Lowbrow: I really, really related to this essay!

This yellow kimono is kind of just everything.

What a good big sister! Kat threw a dreamy engagement party.

Loved this sweet girly look on Jenn.

Such pretty details on this blouse.

Impressed by Krista’s month of no shopping.

Want this rainbow sweater.

Blue & white tablescape heaven.

Are you making these mistakes when you wash your face? I sometimes reuse my wash cloths. Oops.

J’adore the tassels + colors on this pretty clutch.

Dinner party tips.

Get in my closet, pretty yellow sundress!

Always love Molly’s Beauty Dish.

A chic outfit + a good rule!

How pretty is this palm leaf shift dress? (And it’s under $100!)

Loved these thoughts about blogging, community, + photography from Krystal.

The oversized dots on these $40 slides are so good.

    I enjoyed the piece by Kat about blogging, I always find those kind of posts so interesting and I really can’t explain why! I’m not a blogger, but the issues of posting to social media, authenticity, etc., still seem so relevant for anyone who consumes blogs and social media, and produces it of their own. Thanks for sharing, and I’d love to see more links like that in the future!

    Loved this roundup and spent a good hour drooling over all the picks and articles. Thank you for mentioning my lowbrow piece, too — you and Becca 100% inspired it, and I related so deeply to the comment you left! I’m still pissed off at that woman’s comment toward you. Yuck. xo
