Weekend Reading

Happy Saturday, friends! We're in the middle of packing for our big move (next week!) so life has been absolutely crazy, but I can't wait to get into our new space.  I've spent my little free time scouring Pinterest, Ebay, and just about every home decor site out there for the perfect pieces that will make our place feel like a home (suggestions welcome!). The internet has also been extra inspiring this week so I had to share a few of my favorite stories and links ...

Jenna Lyons on Into the Gloss talking beauty and life. So, so good. See also Jenna in Grazia.

Speaking of J.Crew, everything is 25% off this weekend (with code SHOPNOW) ... and I'm kind of in love with this, these & this.

Have you checked out the newest arrivals in the boutique?

A reminder to take a break. (It's good for your brain.)

Loved following Sara's trip across the pond / living vicariously through Instagram.

My next read. My last read & the one before that.

Do you listen to Songza? I'm currently listening to the LA Summer and Blogged 50 playlists.

I hope you have a lovely weekend! xx

The Oxford Shirtdress

Cuyana must have read my mind because I've been on the hunt for the perfect shirtdress. When it comes to the classics, cut, silhouette and quality are so important, and this cotton Oxford style dress has just the right combination of borrowed from the boys and feminine chic. It's a "throw it on and go" kind of dress, and at $130, I know the cost-per-wear will come down to pennies in just a few months. Two words: effortless style.

6 Questions with Philadelphia Magazine

A few weeks ago I met with Marina, a lovely editor at Philadelphia Magazine, for a fun mini photo shoot and interview as part of their "Conversations of Style" series. We chatted over lattes about personal style, what my dream career would be (if I wasn't a designer) & what I'm loving for fall. I'm so excited to share that the short but sweet interview is up on their website! It might be the coolest bit of press yet.
