Weekend Reading 9.2.23

Happy (long!) weekend. This week was all about Mahjong (I took two classes and have my third next week) with a side of hurricane. I definitely wear my newness to Charleston on my sleeve. My friends who have lived here longer are all breezy while I tend to stress and overprepare. All the same, I figure the one time I don’t prepare like a maniac will be the time we get hit really hard, so there we are. Anyway! It is the long weekend and I have a few things planned. A pool day with girlfriends today and maybe seeing my dad play music tomorrow. Whatever you are up to, I hope it is wonderful. Enjoy this week’s links and I’ll be back with new blog content on Tuesday.

Weekend Reading, 9.2.23

Loved this fall TV preview.

Did you see that Jenni Kayne is doing 20% off? Use code LDWEVENT20 . I bought two sweaters: cashmere boyfriend stripes and an oversized crewneck.

I’m really looking forward to this romcom with Meg Ryan.

Some yummy Labor Day recipes to try.

This suede bag is perfect for fall.

Sarah and Missy from My Sister Made Me Buy It (love them) each shared their experience with Ozempic in a raw and honest way. I highly recommend reading both of their posts.

My fall shoe edit will be coming in a few weeks but right now these flats are my number one pick.

A chic little bathroom makeover.

Okay, these protein banana muffins sound so good!

These neutral sneakers are classic, well-priced, and very stylish.

Everything coming to Netflix this September.

This little dress is a great price and would look so fresh with black accessories (maybe these Mary Jane flats)

Dying to visit San Miguel de Allende.

A fun way to make more friends.

A few gorgeous Toteme pieces all 30% off right now: this cable knit sweater (also in cream), this oversized turtleneck, this super elegant trench.

On the art of becoming a morning person.

I’ve been very into the idea of cashmere t-shirts (perfect for when you want to do fall but live in the south) and just ordered this one.

How to pick the right sort of vacation for you.

Really loved seeing SJP as a chic cat mom.

I featured a lot of stripe sweaters this week but love the delicate weave of this one.

An interview with Rosemary Swift (the founder of RMS Beauty).

Fun fall feathers!

End of summer books!

This history of the pumpkin spice latte.

A $72 sweater that absolutely looks designer.

Charming European cities that are worth a day trip!

Love the look of this cozy wrap top.

Inside the secret life of Grand Central Station.

Love Drew Barrymore’s kitchen reno!

Perfect stripes.

Alex Cooper’s LA home is just… impeccable. I was a little shocked how much I love it?

This cute striped Amazon set came in the mail this week and I love! Runs TTS.

    I bought that same (or similar green, I can’t tell if the shade is the exact same from the photos) Staud bag last year when you linked to it from the special Moda Operandi collab. I have used it so much! I always LOVE a convertible crossbody/clutch/handbag and the quality is great. Thank you!
