Happy weekend. How on earth is it already the last day of April? Time seems to be slipping through my fingers, it feels like yesterday was February? I don’t know about you, but I am personally very excited for May. There are so many things happening this month that I’ve been really looking forward to: my dad’s 70th birthday (+ having my youngest sister in town), finalizing my new website (set to launch in early June), launching my paper goods collab with Joy Creative Shop, and going to Harbour Island for my friend Chassity’s birthday. It’s feeling like May is going to be a great month. Have a wonderful weekend ahead and enjoy this week’s links!
Weekend Reading, 4.30.22
J.Crew is having a dresses sale; I’m loving: this button front eyelet, this silky long sleeve, this classy cutout number (giving Staud vibes from last summer), and this yellow kafan.
I loved Jen’s reading list, + reading her thoughts on Going There by Katie Couric, which you know I really enjoyed.

SEA’s new arrivals are just stunning. Crushing on this red maxi dress.

I’ve been loving starting my Saturday mornings slowly with a lovely cup of coffee and your weekend reading newsletter, Grace!
That is so nice of you to say, thank you April!!!
I saw this article earlier this week and thought you’d like it 🙂 https://www.glamour.com/story/what-is-the-coastal-grandmother-aesthetic-tiktok-trend
omg love! Thank you!
Hi! Great links as usual, thanks! Just a tiny question/request…would you possibly consider noting the publication in the link description (such as just putting a (NYT) or (Atlantic). Since you only get a few articles a month if you don’t subscribe to some of these places, I personally try to be very careful which ones I click on. Thanks! (hope that made sense lol…morning [yawn])
I always look forward to Weekend Reading, and this week I especially enjoyed The Atlantic article about Facebook. As I usually do, this year I gave up Facebook for Lent. I find it a great way to reset my relationship with social media. This year, however, since Easter arrived, I have found myself barely spending any time on FB. I haven’t even re-downloaded the app on my phone, only accessing the site occasionally from my computer. It just isn’t interesting or enjoyable, with a couple of notable exceptions … among them The Stripe group, which is one of the only reasons I haven’t just deleted my FB account. It feels so rare these days to find a group that is both fun and respectful, as well as a great information resource on everything from beauty and fashion to mental health. Thanks Grace for creating a forum of such remarkable people!
Our little group is the only reason I use Facebook anymore!!!
