Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend! This was a really busy week over here so I’m looking forward to just chilling out as much as possible. I did that thing where I packed too much into my calendar and then felt annoyed all week – mostly just with myself for overcommitting! Ugh! Someday I’ll learn.Today we’re recording a few episodes of the pod to get ahead before we both travel, and tomorrow I have a coffee meeting but I am otherwise just (in a very leisurely way), getting caught up on work and stuff around the house. Next week I head to Kentucky for the derby with Vineyard Vines (!!) so I want to make sure everything is in order before I leave. But I digress- here are this week’s links – hope you love ’em as much as I do!

The sweetest yellow gingham dress. Obviously ordered this.

This is how long it takes to make a friend!

Love Alicia’s Sunday night ritual -and how gorgeous is her tub!?

Talbots is having a gigantic sale. Everything is 30% off with code FRIENDS30. They’re my secret spot for perfect-fitting striped tees and comfortable heels. I love this rainbow stripe tee, these Loeffler Randall lookalikes and these green gingham slides! Okay and these classic stripes too.

Jacey is making me crave a trip back to Tulum. I miss it.

Yay for boyfriend shorts. Why is it so hard to find cool cut-offs that aren’d diaper sized?

Haha – is bad grammar worse than bad sex?

An interesting article about size and fashion.

I love this green wrap dress so much.

Ugh yes this is definitely annoying dating behavior.

SUCH a cute ($60!) off the shoulder dress.

Loved Meghan’s guide to the best wines under $25!

America’s 100 favorite books.

Loving the sleeves on this simple striped tee.

What a cute pink dress on Jenn!

Crushing on this cute fisherman bag – it’s only $40.

How to get out of a slump.

So happy this stripe sweatshirt is finally back in stock!

Loved Wendy’s guide to the most instagrammable spots in NYC!

A pretty midi dress at a great price.

Blair makes rainy days look so good!

These J.Crew x Liberty sandals are just the best.

Love this chic outfit on Anna – I have the same loafers so may copy her!

Really related to this post on friendship (and feeling inadequate) by Carly.

Excited to try out this highlighter.

Will captured Spring in New York so beautifully.

A bath soak specifically designed for post yoga? MUST try.

I always love Victoria’s playlists.

Finding me time when you have no free time.

Looks like Isabel Marant but only $50.

Have you ever had a colonic?

I’m into these espadrille mules!

When good habits go bad.

These cupcakes look like heaven.

Need this kimono in my life!

    The fisherman bag from TopShop. I had it in hand yesterday and gotta say that for $40 it is a steal. I would pay double. It is well made, the handles are perfect and the inside bag has a zipper too.
