Weekend Reading

Weekend’s here, woohoo! I wanted to share this new-to-me jewelry company called Au Rate that I’m really loving lately. I discovered them back when Cuyana had a pop-up at their Madison Avenue boutique, and I’ve fallen in love with their gorgeous, sleek pieces and clean, modern aesthetic (they kind of feel like the Everlane of jewelry). I also appreciate that while some of their prices are splurge-y (for diamonds, obviously), they also carry gold and silver pieces that are affordable – many are in the 100-300 dollar range. For my birthday my parents got me their Circle Necklace in gold, and I absolutely love it. I barely wear jewelry but I’ve been wearing this nonstop…it feels so modern and simple, without being boring. And how cute is their millennial pink shopping bag? So pretty!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Love this – a New York City guide for book lovers.

Never before have I been so excited about a pen…I’ll take two of each, please!

Everlane has long been my go-to for basics like cotton tees, and now I’m loving their silk basics. Just ordered two of these button downs (one in white, one in navy) – perfect fit and drape, and not see-through. Score!

These Kate Spade sconces are so elegant.

As the sister and daughter of TJ Maxx lovers (I’ve never had much luck there myself), this completely cracked me up.
