Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend! I know I have a lot of New York area readers so I will just say that I hope you’re outside today! Yesterday was just so perfect and lovely. I took my laptop out onto my patio, found a spot that got wifi, and spent the afternoon working al fresco. It was pretty much the best thing ever. Before we dive into this week’s links, a tiny bit of housekeeping/announcements! I’m speaking at Social Media Week! If you’re in NY on 4/25 + work in social/blogging/digital, come to my panel! I would love to meet you! And also, we finally have a website for our podcast! Be sure to sign up for our mailing list… we’ve gotten a lot of requests for links to the products we mention so we will be putting those there!

I did some damage at the Shopbop sale (it ends today!). I bought this rainbow stripe tee and love it so much.

Loved Liz’s Spring beauty routine + what a cute video!

For the bloggers who read here: I really love James Nord’s “A Drink With James” video series. Last week’s was a good one, talking about building an email newsletter, affiliates, + more.

A great work bag, at a great price.

Meghan Markle approved.

I ordered this rugby shirt this week – such a good classic.

I always love Helena’s beauty favorites. She takes her skincare as seriously as I do and has great taste.

This got posted to our Facebook group and made me LOL – so much yes to this funny piece about flaky men.

The BEST rainbow sneakers – I got them this week and am obsessed!

A really interesting article on how Vineyard Vines built their business.

This top + skirt set is beyond gorgeous. It would be so cute for a bridal shower or bachelorette party, too.

Kathleen and I are clearly on the same page with kimonos. Love how she styled hers!

My friend Alex launched the prettiest line of monogrammed linens + pajamas.

True or false: I need gauchos for Spring? These would be so cute with a crop top or bodysuit.

Nude pumps for ALL… smart and necessary!

Such a cute tie-waist top.

What a fun idea for game night!

My friend Clara sent me this: 6 things to give fewer f*cks about.

These earrings are seriously cool (and look seriously expensive).

This pom pom sandal DIY is kind of just everything – LOVE.

I snagged this cute trench this week. It’s the perfect lightweight jacket for Spring.

I really liked this classic, chic outfit on Carly.

Really just loved this post from Kat – giving up on dating and then meeting the greatest guy!

Simple green stripes.

OMG thank you for writing this, Man Repeller: something my girlfriends and I have said over and over again. Miranda is actually the best character on Sex & The City.

Really into this graphic top.

Of course I loved Jenn’s guide to shopping for palm print.

I need to go to Savannah!

Want this oversized gingham dress – the colors are fantastic.

Krystal’s photos from Provence are totally dreamy.

Seriously pretty espadrilles.

Have any of you tried CBD based beauty products? I’m definitely curious.

Love this gorgeous, colorful home!

Love this cute coverup.

Jacey tracked down the best basket bags.

The cutest striped PJs!

Holy moly – now THIS is makeup organization to the next level.

    Look forward to checking out Weekend Reading every Saturday morning with a strong cup of coffee before teenage daughters finally rise and shine. Those J. Crew Rugby shirts brought back middle school memories- corduroy Levis, Rugby Shirt & Clogs were the Look for school (with a super puffed Down Jacket). Inspired to get my make-up super organized. Happy Weekend!

    I love the weekend links, they’re the best and I so look forward to them!! Do you ever think that Mark Mandon’s writing could benefit from him being more aware of his privilege? Like, STDs are less worrisome to men because they are more often carriers than women and don’t have the high rates of cervical cancer that young women have. And all presidents/politicians I agree are probs the most evil people, but immigrants and refugees have had their whole worlds turned upside down by trump so can’t really not give a frick about him. That’s my main critique of him, and it’s so hard for me to see past that, he doesn’t seem to take into account other people’s experiences. Sorry to get serious in your comments!

      I’m glad you said this because I was thinking the same thing about several (most) of his points. It’s easy to not care when you’re a middle aged white man with no children.

    Hope you had an amazing weekend, Grace!
    I went to Seattle for a few days, and it was SO rainy (shocker), so I’m a bit sad I missed out on the weather!
