Weekend Reading, 9.11.21

Hello from LA. I am here until Monday night which is so nice. I had a really lovely week. A family dinner on Sunday, a fun night out with friends on Monday, and then a date night with my sister on Wednesday. In between: work, shooting, podcast recording, ETC! And then I flew here on Thursday night. We’ve had a few loose plans… MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) on Friday afternoon, a fun sushi dinner, a few other things… but otherwise it’s a very chill weekend which is my favorite kind of weekend.

Weekend Reading, 9.11.21

One of my favorite, very affordable lace bras. I have it in black and nude and LOVE it. (I took the bow off with a seam ripper).

The next Target designer collection looks GREAT.

I ordered this Amazon dress in the forest green. It could be terrible (those rando brands are so hit or miss!) but it felt worth trying, it’s so pretty!

The best guacamole recipe?

The 17 best cookbooks of Fall.

I am not a big hearts person but can’t stop thinking about these earrings. The color combo is so good!
