Just This Week

Today’s “Just This Week” post is going to be a little shorter than usual as I prepare for the arrival of one of my best friends from Austin – you can read all about my weekend trip to visit her here – Austin was amazing and I’m so happy she’s now returning the favor and coming to NY to see me and our other bestie that lives in the city! This weekend will be jam packed with fun activities. First today is St. Patty’s day, which always leads to fun bar nights and stories the next day 🙂 And tomorrow we are going to see one of my FAVORITE bands, Florida Georgia Line. I’ve been singing their songs all week in anticipation. I can’t wait! Now on to some of my favorite finds from this week.

Loved reading about Caitlin’s 10 beauty products she can’t live without. I’m always on the hunt for the best of the best products and I just may have to try some of these out!

Sydney looks absolutely STUNNING in this little green Draper James dress.

Really liked how Julia styled all of J McLaughlin’s new spring pieces – she puts the best outfits together and it always looks so classy and feminine.

Can you say hair goals? Lauren shared her favorite hair products and I will definitely be testing some of these out on my frizzy mane – maybe it’ll look like hers! A girl can dream right?

How beautiful is this Society Social x Lilly Pulitzer collab! The most perfectly styled bar cart!

Also once it finally decides to stay warm, you can bet this dress will be on repeat! It’s the perfect little combo number! Oh, and did I mention it has a bow?!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Just This Week

Hey y’all! This week has been crazy. One moment it’s 60 degrees and the next thing you know, we are having a blizzard! But the good news is, that did leave lots of time for reading and puppy snuggles, which I am NOT complaining about. Also, the ACC tournament is in full swing and Duke is in the finals! I absolutely love this time of year – March Madness is so fun.

See a few of our favorite finds from this week!

Speaking of 60 degrees, I’ve been so jealous of everyone’s spring break photos! So many people have shared their warm weather essentials and I need it all! Caitlin, Sydney, Ali and Lauren have put together the cutest list of necessities for the beach and what they packed.

I’ve also been seriously crushing on Abigail’s adorable photos from her spring break trip to Georgia!

Julia rounded up the CUTEST pieces you need to buy for spring.

I think I’m having a spring shopping obsession because I’m also loving everything on Jillian’s March edit.

Kate went to Florida for a Lilly Pulitzer photo shoot and the photos and videos are just perfection – so jealous – it looks like it was an amazing time! Also, Lilly’s new arrivals are so cute, I’ve already placed a sizable order – oops 🙂

This frose recipe from Grace looks delicious and a must-try!

Been looking for a new book to read and may just have to pick something up from Krista’s new list!

And our obsession with bows continues…how cute is Mackenzie in this bow top?

Also congrats to Laurie for launching a new travel section of her blog! It’s great and definitely making me want to plan a trip.

Lastly, if you missed it we posted all about a cozy wintertime night in – take a look!

Happy Weekend!

Just This Week

This week has been SO WARM! That, plus our wishlist for Shopbop’s major sale really has us in the mood for spring. Since it’s so uncharacteristic for NYC to be this warm in February, I decided to take advantage of the time I could have outside with the pup. We strolled around Madison Square Park and spent some time in the dog section with his friends – it’s so nice for him to run around with other dogs and selfishly for me, he’s so tired when we get home that he becomes the BEST snuggler!

Other things we are loving this week….

Love how Sydney styles her Barbour coat – a staple in our closets, as well!

Just like Carly, we cannot seem to get enough of stripes! They are basically another neutral in our wardrobe these days. Speaking of stripes, how cute is this striped dress Katie found that is perfect for spring!

It seems as if so many bloggers were recently in Charleston! Carly’s pictures are so adorable and you can read all about her trip here and here. Kelly’s photos are also super cute and can be seen here!

As a sucker for pretty pj sets, I was thrilled to see Julia do a roundup of ones she’s currently loving! I may need to purchase one…

Julia recently collaborated with Hat Attack and designed the most adorable straw hat with a striped ribbon! It’s too cute!

This is a great article by Angela on how to become a boss babe. So inspiring!

For more advice, Stephanie shares how she edits her photos for Instagram and there are so many good tricks and tips!

How darling does Krystal look in her Draper James outfit? She shows us the perfect way to mix stripes and florals for spring!

Lastly, Lilly Pulitzer just came out with some ADORABLE new arrivals – how’s a girl to decide?

Happy Weekend!
