hi! Weekend reading is coming at you a day early. In an effort to have a little more extra time during our month of live show craziness I’m going to post these on Fridays vs. Saturdays some weeks. Once things simmer down I will go back up to 6 blog posts a week but for now I’m trying to make life a little bit easier! I head home to New York this afternoon.
Chicago was WONDERFUL. Our show was amazing, I loved getting to meet so many readers/listeners, and I just love Chicago in general – it’s such a fun city and everyone is so nice (and the men are all so good looking?). The fun continues as tomorrow I am going to polo with Veuve Clicquot – always my favorite event of the year! Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great – enjoy this weeks links and I’ll see you on Monday! xo

Why are we so obsessed with being spontaneous?
I bought this yellow dress yesterday and it’s really fun (and forgiving – I was feeling a little down as NOTHING I packed fit well since I was really bloated from flying/my period/too many cheetos). It comes in plus size too!
After reading about them in Vogue, I’m crushing on this new swimsuit brand.

YAY Veuve tomorrow!! The weather looks perfect and I can’t wait!! Best event of the year, hope to see you there! xo elle
YAYYYY SEE YOU THERE!!!
I actually prefer this series on Friday!! Gives me something to do at work 🙂
I absolutely loved the “Why are we so obsessed with being spontaneous?” piece. I was really thinking about this lately and remembering how as a kid I would always read about how “being spontaneous” was the way to go when growing up versus all of the typical “boring” adult lives that live through their routines. Well, let me tell you now how much I love my routine and how much comfort and happiness it brings me!
Couldn’t agree more! I love my routine so much!
Honestly, it feels like Christmas Eve! I CANNOT WAIT for tomorrow!
