Weekend Reading 8.17

Well this week FLEW by, didn't it? it was a pretty great one for me - beginning with kitten yoga and surfing and ending with a very calm Friday and some very productive days at work in between and during. This week was gorgeous, a little rainy, yes, but we've been getting the type of weather that hints at fall without actually being fall. Leather jackets weather (finally!) Jeans weather while still being tank top weather! I'm still very happy for summer to stick around a while longer but not mad at cooler nights and a little fog here and there. This weekend I'm headed back home again to pop in to the summer camp I used to attend (it's a long story but I went to camp for 10 years, going back to camp and seeig old camp friends is like visiting your old college campus or getting together with sorority sisters... albeit from a much cooler sorority because whitewater canoeing), then we have a friend coming into town on Saturday night and another friend is having a party - to yeah, tomorrow is a busy one. Sunday, I'm just hoping to relax. Our anniversary is on Monday and I'd like to get us out of town for the day for some hiking or swimming if the weather's right. Hope your weekend is a good one!

I'm saving up for a wetsuit and board - shop my closet to help me get there :)

Love the cover of this antique book - I've always wanted a bee tattoo

Just a liiiiiiitle bit obsessed with these vintage striped pants. So cool with van's slip-ons and a cool top, right?

On my mind: Not quite ready for boot weather but really loving these options and still obsessing over easy breezy summer dresses

Have you noticed friendships fading as you get older? This could be why

The Reformation sale is still going STRONG - really tempted by this dress and this simple but gorgeous top

The story of a face - somewhat graphic (medical stuff) but riveting! A great long read.

Loving this simple handmade bolero hat

How to apply eyeliner. Topical.

Just got this pretty hairbow and I'm in love

Aretha Franklin knew how to sing about women

Two books for work that I ordered this week that I can't wait to dive into: The Creative Home & The Maverick Soul

I just watched Netflix's 'Like Father' last night (found it sweet and reminiscent of 90's rom-coms without the 'rom' - which was fresh) which made me wonder: are cruises cool?

You guys... this llama ring holder. My heart!

Constance Wu's beauty routine (have you seen or read Crazy Rich Asians yet? I want to see it!)
