Weekend Reading.

weekend reading - the stripe

Happy Weekend! Today I am at Polo with Veuve Clicquot which is always just the most fun. This week was a busy mix of catching up from being gone – and adjusting to being back! Bopping around Brooklyn getting stuff done, catching up on work and contracts…. all very exciting and glamorous stuff. So I don’t have a ton to tell you besides that. (Also, I miss Cuba.) Enjoy the weekend and let’s all hope for some sunshine, kay?

Erica has me wanting to visit Santa Fe.

I bought this red dress this week and love it. Makes me feel like a walking emoji.

Congrats to Merritt on her new travel site! Merritt has THE BEST travel recs – I used all her London picks when I visited. Her first guide is for Japan, so if you’re planning a trip, pick it up!

Why we want things we don’t need. (I found it to be super interesting – and true!)

This jumpsuit would probably look terrible on me but it’s SO FUN!

The best non-toxic sunscreens.

I’ve been living in this easy white shirt – highly recommend!

Love Annie’s list of summer must-haves.

Love this outfit on Meghan.

These sandals are definitely the perfect pop of leopard.

This is completely fascinating.

This little eyelet dress is perfection – and only $51!

Mackenzie’s photos from the south of France are just a dream.

How gorgeous is Garance’s LA studio?

Denim shorts are the hardest. I ordered 6 pairs this week and kept one: these.

A good article about toxic friendships.

Definitely need this palm print shaker.

How fun are Krystal’s Miami pics?

And how to be a good friend when your friend is grieving. (I never know what to do/say.)

This cute ruffle skirt just screams SUMMER!

How much time does self care actually take?

I’m definitely having a moment with blazers right now. I bought this one from Theory and love it so much. (For something more affordable this one just went on sale and I have + love it, too!)

Jenn has me even more excited for polo than I was before!

Why rejection hurts so much – and what to do about it.

This palm romper is adorable.

Planning on visiting Newport this summer? Jess is your girl.

I 100% need these cropped pants for summer.

Simple detox drinks.

I am here for Blair’s easy coordinated look. So fun.

I’ve been living in these jeans.

Welcome to your thirties.

Also living in this easy linen cardigan.

Such a cute date night outfit on Kat.

Yum yum yum to this party snack.

The smocking on this tank makes it so flattering – I have in black and love.

Jacey had such cute NYC outfits.

Love these oversized floral studs.

An easy yoga sequence to help you breathe more easily.

    Happy weekend, Grace! Hope you’re enjoying your time at Polo 🙂 I’m hoping for sunshine as well – we’ve had a straight two weeks of great weather but beginning yesterday it’s begun raining… it’s always sunny during the week and rainy during the weekend, sigh!

    Such a great round up! That jumpsuit is adorable and would look great on you. As someone who’s had their share of grief in the last few years( I know I’m not alone) the best thing you can do is be there. People always say, call me if you need anything. When you are in deep grief, it’s really hard to do that. Call to say hello, ask if they want company. Bring or cook them a meal. A good friend once said to ” everyone is going to be around for the first stages, the funeral etc. I’m going to be there long after they’ve gone, always. You don’t need to say anything. Just be present, let them talk or cry. Give them a hug. These are all little things, but they mean so much. My sister is attending the Vueve event this year too! Excited to hear her take on it.Have a great weekend!

    I have had such a hard time finding jean shorts (really any shorts…but jean shorts especially) and I recently bought a ton of pairs too! I found two keepers – one by blanknyc and one pair from Banana Republic. Thought I’d share my findings in case they could help anyone else : )

    If you visit Santa Fe, you should stop by Palms Trading Co. in Albuquerque first. They have beautiful Native American art (turquoise jewelry, rugs, pottery) at a very good value. I hope you make it to New Mexico soon.
