Happy weekend! Tomorrow is my 39th birthday. One last year of my thirties, wow, eesh. I truly do not know how that happened. You blink and you miss ten years! I still feel like I’m in my twenties some (a lot of) days. And on other days, I’m just really tired and feel like I’m eighty – LOL… it’s either 28 or 78 and nothing in between! Tonight I’m having a small (outdoor) dinner at one of my absolute favorite restaurants in the city with some of my best friends + family and am really looking forward to it. A dirty martini, good french fries and oysters… the best. I feel so lucky and happy that we can even do that… I hope I never take restaurants for granted again. It will be low key and nice.
Also – been reading Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain and just love it. Timely too as this piece just came out. Will likely read every book on this list. Restaurant / chef memoirs and books always really do it for me… I’ve talked about it before but I grew up in a restaurant and my dad is/was a chef. Have a great weekend!

Grieving RBG? Here is what we can do next.
I splurged on this Sea sweater/blouse hybrid and love it. It’s going to be my “fancy shirt” for Fall.
OK do I need to curate my phone’s home screen? Probs too lazy but intrigued!

Such a pretty puff sleeve top at a great price.

This little cardigan is a new fav. It’s so soft and is great tucked into high-rise jeans.

Did you see BaubleBar’s new alphabet bracelets? I think they’re so cute!
I’ve only seen one of the documentaries on Krystal’s list and think I need to change that!
I bought this belt to replace my Gucci belt (sold that, just kinda over big logos right now) and love it so much.
Love the idea of having a power hour!
Not entirely sure I agree with everything here but maybe I’m uptight: four WFH rules it’s okay to break.
I got this striped sweater this week and love it so much. Super cozy and soft.
Wine questions… answered by an expert!
V v into this plaid blazer. So chic and a great price.
Oh this floral filled stationery is just a dream!

What does hypoallergenic skincare actually mean?
One of my best friends (she’s the same size as me, saying that so you know she’s not a miniature person) bought this KIDS JACKET from H&M in the biggest size and it’s soooo cute on her. Tempted to copy.
I bought these jeans at the beginning of quarantine and am finally wearing them. LOVE the fit – and the tattered bottom hem.
Delicious ways to eat cooked greens.
Oh I love this tie-dye vote sweatshirt!!!!
