Weekend Reading | 9.28.19

happy weekend! I am having a party today! Yesterday was my 38th birthday and I definitely celebrated in style. I got a blowout and a massage, and did a night staycation at The Carlyle – so nice!!! (Disclosure – did a shoot with them last year and was paid with a night’s stay – have been saving this!!!) Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great – enjoy the weekend… and these links, there quite a few this week!

Weekend Reading | 9.28.19

Could not agree more with these thoughts on sleeping with a sleep mask!

I got this stripe sweater in the mail this week and couldn’t love it more. So cozy! (Size up if you have a long torso; it’s a little cropped!)

Bookmarking: the best Fall TV shows!

Loved this 10 year old’s reaction to her classmates’ bullying her for her natural hair.

This surplice top is a great Fall staple – and a great price!!!

A very smart piece re: sustainable clothing.

I am not pregnant nor do I have plans on being pregnant anytime soon but if you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love sleeping with my pregnancy pillow. It’s everything. So cozy, like a mini cocoon.

Good news for cat owners: your cat may actually like you!

The case for a gentler, more pared down skincare routine.

I finally ordered my fav slip on sneakers in white. (I have in navy and grey and they’re the best – so comfy + cute enough to wear with dresses.)

Carly absolutely nails styling a white dress for Fall.

I’m into this cardigan dress! (in plus sizes here!)

Absolutely loved Krystal + Serena’s photos from Italy.

On running as self care (relatable!)

How chic is this $37 Target dress!?

AMEN – the best shoulder stretches for when your body hates you!

Love the side buttons on this ultra cozy sweater.

I’m very intrigued by Dove’s new aluminum free deodorants.

Apple crisp is probably my favorite fall dessert and this one looks GOOD.

I got these (book cover!) pajamas this week and am OBSESSED. They are just so fun!

A fun little history of Google doodles.

Why aren’t more female celebs writing novels?

I found this really helpful: the 2020 presidential election calendar! Saving the date for the October 15th debate!

Few more links!

I ordered this black bodysuit during the Shopbop sale – I really like this brand!

Couldn’t agree more with Laura Dern on this!

Ooh do I need this oversized green teddy coat? Looks so cozy.

If you loved Netflix’s Unbelievable, read this. I loved that show so much and cried my eyes out during the last two episodes.

Brace yourself for the Renaissancore trend!

How to make the perfect grilled cheese!

My favorite t-shirt right now. It’s so soft. (Runs big!)

EXCITING: Universal Standard just launched a (pretty perfect) workwear collection.

Did you see Mattel’s gender neutral doll!?

Extremely into this graphic black + white sweater.

The best healthy snacks to pack in your gym bag.

The best gifts for cat lovers. My birthday was yesterday, just saying.

Just for fun – a deep dive into Mariah’s beauty routine?

I will be honest – J.Crew got me back as a customer (haven’t shopped there in ages) with these leopard pants. LOVE. Also, this cat tee!

    First, happy belated birthday!

    I’ve been using the Dove aluminum free deodorant for at least four months now. I like it better than the other aluminum free/natural options I’ve tried. The smell is lovely, however, be ready to also be sticky. Regardless, I’ll likely stay with them as long as they keep making it.
