Weekend Reading | 08.18.2018

weekend reading

happy weekend from Cape Cod! I am home with my parents and it is just the best. So nice to be home and so good to spend some time with my family. We’ve mostly just been staying and cooking, going to the beach, and lounging around reading – three of my most favorite activities. I had a work project on Thursday night with Puritan Cape Cod (a popular department store here) and Eileen Fisher. There was a panel discussion and fashion show (I was on the panel) and it was really fun because my mom and dad came and also rounded up a bunch of their friends to come and cheer me on! Aren’t parents just the best? Anyway, it’s great to be here… I head home tomorrow afternoon!

Really loved this essay on Cup of Jo: Single woman seeks role model!

Loooved this tropical look on Blair.

I definitely need this cropped sweater – how cool is the back?

I always love Lauryn’s beauty recommendations. She is the third person to mention Algenist recently which makes me think I have to try it.

Some cute fashion girls to follow on Instagram.

I almost squealed when I saw these emerald green tassel earrings -they are FAB!

Vowing to follow this decluttering advice before the end of summer.

I didn’t know “Gen Z Yellow” was a thing but I’m totally on board.

Oh hello! I definitely need this leopard wrap dress, no?

Some of the best Aretha Franklin quotes. (RIP)

And some of her best looks.

I definitely don’t need another red wrap dress, but I LOVE this ruffled one.

Loving Rachel Zoe’s new collection at Macy’s, especially this midi dress!

Loved this wellness reset (from one of my favorite yoga teachers).

After my event with Eileen Fisher I bought a LOT of her pieces – a new coat, some pants, and this satin camisole.
