happy weekend

Happy weekend, all! It’s finally started to cool off in NYC and I couldn’t be more thrilled it’s the weekend. There is nothing quite like an 80 degree summer day. You can bask in the sun and not melt your face off. Methinks there may be a picnic in my weekend future. What are your plans?

Also, there are some killer sales going on right now that you probably shouldn’t miss. For serious.

J.Crew is having 40% off sale items with code STYLE40. It’s the perfect time to snag their perfect denim jacket on super sale! I’ve got my eye on these mini-wedge sandals.

Joie’s sale is also insane. I’m pretty sure I need this dress and these pants in my life, immediately.

One of my favorite NYC boutiques, OTTE, is having 60% off all sale items with code EXTRA60. These rag + bone shorts are just adorable and this top is a great basic.

Also, it’s Christmas in July. Don’t miss my picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

birthday wish list

I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those girls that gets all giggly about her birthday and wants to celebrate it for a month. I’m just not. Past the age of 11, I was over birthdays and parties. I didn’t even have a sweet sixteen because I couldn’t care less. Sue me. I do, however, enjoy presents because why not? Believe it or not, I haven’t really put a whole lot of thought into what I want this year mostly because I’ve been dealing with some serious life malarky which is super annoying.

A bit of a random list, I suppose but I can’t think of too many things that I want. Especially since I won’t really be requiring clothing other than loungewear for the month of July. So far, I’m definitely on the fence about my 29th year. Something seems so ominous about 30 looming around the corner. I’ve always had a thing with 30. Mostly because 30 comes with a lot of those “well, you’re 30 now…” type scenarios. You know what I’m talking about, you’ve seen the movies and TV shows that have given me this complex.

But I’m hoping that 29 is a bit more kind to me than 28. Not that 28 was terrible, but it surely had a lot of ups and downs that I could do without. Amiright?

What’s on your birthday list?

who do you love?

I don’t know about you, but I love finding amazing things to give as gifts. Enter, who do you love? frames. I spent about an hour just tooling around on their site looking at all the different options for custom framing options. Think amazing collages that are so clean and chic.

All the guests at this wedding signed the frame and a photo of them from the wedding was included. How a great way to remember your special day is this? I have some friends getting married and it’s always hard to buy something off the registry because it seems so anonymous, but this would be amazing.

Head on over and check out the other amazing options they have!

what’s in my bag

I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Kristina’swhat’s in my bag” series, but you obviously should be. It’s amazing. Below is the beautiful illustration Kristina did for me! Naturally, I love it. I’m pretty sure any girl would love it. Come to think of it, a custom illustration would be an amazing gift.
