Weekend Reading

It was one of those weeks that felt abnormally long, but also kind of flew by.. You know what I mean? Thank goodness for the weekend! Mercury is in retrograde and I’ve been majorly feeling the effects the past two days… Happy to have a weekend with few plans so I can just chill out a bit. I’m savoring these lazy weekends before the summertime weekend frenzy begins here in a few weeks. It’s been a while since I’ve shared my favorite links so there are quite a few… Enjoy!

Gingham & Scallops

Lately, both my gingham and scalloped clothing collections have been growing at a rapid rate. There are just so many cute gingham pieces right now, and an influx of scalloped hems, too. I can’t get enough! Can’t stop, won’t stop. In my opinion, there are a few thing that you can never have enough of: stripes, gingham, monograms, bows, and scallops. Maybe don’t wear your entire collection of well-placed bows all at once, but you get my drift, right? Never can get enough!

When it comes to shopping for gifts for my mom, I try to think one step ahead and think of things that she doesn’t even know she wants or needs. Or things that I know she won’t splurge on for herself!

Derby Day

The Kentucky Derby is always one of my favorite days of spring. While I’ve admittedly never attended the actual Derby (one of these years I’m going to finally make the trip!), I’ve gone to my fair share of Derby parties over the years. What’s better than dressing up in your springtime finest (and preppiest!), donning an oh-so-chic hat, and drinking Mint Juleps with your guys and girlfriends?! Mark your calendars if you haven’t already… Not this weekend, but the next — May 7th!

While I’m all for getting a dress specifically for the occasion (remember this post last year?), it’s nice to be able to shop your closet or pick up a dress that you’ll be able to wear over and over again, too!
