Weekend Reading | 8.24.19.

happy happy weekend! I hope you had a good week. This was a busy one over here. I guested on two of my favorite podcasts, we recorded a bunch for OUR podcast, and we are in live show planning mode. And then there’s all the regular blog stuff! But anyway if you do any one thing because of me (or shop one sale), make it the Sephora VIB sale! It only happens a couple times a year and when it does you gotta stock up on all your beauty favorites. I made a very long list of all of my Sephora favs! Also while I have you… I’m hosting a fun bedding AND books giveaway on Instagram – the best combination – make sure you enter!!!!

Weekend Reading | 8.24.19.

PS – So cool! I was interviewed in Glamour, talking about the Amazon nightgown!

Currently in my cart: this very cute printed mini dress (will never tire of emerald green!!)

This article about talking about money got shared in the Bad on Paper Facebook group and I thought it was really good.

How to live alone (something I personally love but know others struggle with).

The perfect oversized neutral earrings.

Sunshine is the best medicine. Vowing to take more mid-day walks after reading this.

Speaking of sunshine – I ordered this patent yellow mini bag – it’ so fun!!!!

Loved this advice for being a great aunt!

For all my Younger fans, go buy this book now!!!! #TeamCharles #soexcited

Love these $32 flats!

Some of the cutest blazers for Fall!

I’m definitely picking up a pair of these wide leg pants for Fall.

I loved Helena’s photo diary and experience with fraxel!

On forgiveness.

Very into this eye cream for night – it’s great for dryness and fine lines!

Ugh – the hazards of spray sunscreens.

Why August is the best month to cook.

This could potentially be the fall version of the Amazon nightgown… unclear!

I felt seen: the problem with loving someone for their potential.

Very very into this patterned midi skirt (in plus sizes here).

This is such a funny one to relate to so hard, but as a life long stomach/side sleeper I am so impressed that Carly trained herself to sleep on her back!

How to style a leopard skirt!

A very fun leopard midi dress (leopard is prob the trend I’m most excited about for Fall, if it’s even a trend?) Plus version here!

This video got shared to the Facebook group and I had to post it here! Why more men are pretending to be women to sell more thrillers.

Loving this hair mask when my hair gets brassy.

Love these 5 clean swaps to be more environmentally friendly.

Hooray – plus size fashion that’s also ethical.

Speaking of sustainable and inclusive: Girlfriend makes my faaaavorite workout sets and they just released new colors. I ordered this bra and these leggings in Daybreak – the perfect red-orange!

How to prepare your home for Fall.

Loving this (printed!!!) caftan from Universal Standard.

A fun quiz: how optimistic are you!?

    I recently discovered your blog via instagram/#amazonnightgown and definitely have a million tabs opened on my laptop from articles to blazer recommendations. I just wish I could remember the article you shared this weekend on instagram about reading being comparable to traveling.
    Needless to say, I love your content!

    Where is your chinoserie skull from? I love it!

    • grace at the stripe says 8.28.19

      I love that you called it Chinoserie! It’s a day of the dead skull from St. Frank. It’s several years old, not sure if they still have it!
