Weekend Reading 5.16.20
mi golondrina blouse

This was a pretty good week. Nothing remarkable or amazing, but also nothing terrible? It’s funny – today, May 16th, I was supposed to be running the Brooklyn Half Marathon with a few girlfriends. Oh how things have changed. I definitely would not be able to run 13.1 miles right now – once quarantine started, I basically stopped running. But it’s just a little funny as I looked at my calendar and had the day blocked off for the race. Instead, I’m likely home, air frying bagels. Whatever you’re up to I hope it’s great. I’m just over here on a cleaning / organizing / air frying bender. And hopefully getting outside a bit as it’s supposed to be really nice! Xoxo

Weekend Reading 5.16.20

I love Molly Baz and can’t wait to make her red pesto pasta.

This is such a cute set of fabric face masks – I love the prints!

Really cool: The NYPL made a playlist of the missing sounds of New York.

Loved Krystal’s thoughts on channeling enthusiasm.

Lauren Goodwin’s new book is available for pre-order. It’s packed with great career advice and the perfect gift for the new grad or someone looking to make a career change.

Becca and Rachael released the trailer for RomComPods and it is SO GOOD. Can’t wait for the first ep (coming 6/1!)

Living in my pandemic shoes. So comfy.

Ooh! Anna had a great roundup of recipes to try during quarantine.

A fun take on the puff sleeve trend, for under $50.

On the rise of the caftan during quarantine…

V. excited about the Hamilton movie.

I bought a second one of these baskets to store my towels in (my other one is in the closet) I really like these; they’re pretty but also durable.

This is very cool:

Headspace is now free if you’ve lost your job.

Kendi had a fantastic review of the best white t-shirts.

This $25 babydoll dress looks designer.

Instagram-worthy home decor trends.

Mmm, spring soup!

This tie dye linen sweater is 60% off and v cute.

How to use all those inevitable kitchen scraps!

Longer review to come but I am loving the Vuori joggers so far – they’re super comfortable and lightweight.

Oh my god, I want to live in this beautiful condo – it’s stunning… so much green!

Really good advice for organizing those messy shelves.

OH I love this graphic maxi skirt. Would be so pretty with a simple blouse or t-shirt.

I can’t wait to try Augustinus Bader’s new hand cream!

This pretty white blouse came in the mail this week and I LOVE it.

Ohh I love this collector’s apartment.

Loved these home vignettes from Helena. (With her on the fferone glasses; they are incredible!)

I’m completely enamored by Jennifer Fisher’s collection for CB2 – especially the marble swirl dinnerware. Beyond.

Anyone else excited about this new update from Google chrome!?

    I was supposed to run the Brooklyn Half too! Would have been such a gorgeous day for it. Instead, I took a long walk through Flushing Meadows Park. Can’t wait for the release of Becca’s podcast!

    I saw in the Facebook group that you ordered a S in the Vuori joggers. Do you like the fit? I just ordered and am a little worried because they’re slim that they won’t be lounge-y enough!

    You inspired me to buy the set of masks from shopbop. They came today and are so cute and functional. Love the colors and fabric! They are perfect for essential trips to the grocery store.

    What size did you take in the Vuori joggers? Thank you!

      Both fit but I ended up preferring the medium. Will have a blog post with photos of both sizes in the coming weeks!
