This week was busy and fun! I went to a few cool events. On Wednesday, the night started with a summer soiree at Ladurée, where I finally ran into my Internet bud Meghan in real life (the best thing about blogging)! So much fun.
Then I went with Will to the opening party for The White Company’s first US store. Do you guys know about The White Company? (I didn’t). They’re a UK based clothing and interiors store that’s apparently really big over there, and I can see why. The store is gorgeous and I spotted a ton of things that I wanted/needed (new bedding!). I’ll share all of my favorites in a post next week but if you’re in New York you should definitely pop in for a visit.
After that we headed over to Central Park to meet our friend Sarah for the New York Philharmonic’s Concert in the Park – one of those really cool, only-in-New-York experiences. Whew! I was wiped out, especially because then I came home and had to watch The Handmaid’s Tale season finale, during which I cried at least twice and felt emotionally gutted (not that I’m being dramatic or anything ;). Seriously though. What a show, and what a finale. Too many emotions.
Anyway, then last night I went to a really fun book party down in Tribeca thrown by Viking Books in celebration of new summer releases coming from three of their featured authors – Zinzi Clemmons’ What We Lose, Alex Gilvarry’s Eastman Was Here, and Augustus Rose’s The Readymade Thief – all of which sound really good. I met so many nice people and loved hearing the authors talk a bit about their books.
Oh and I don’t know if I mentioned that last weekend I went to the Maiden Home NYC showroom (where I took the pic above) to try out a couch I had my eye on – and I’m obsessed! Pretty sure I’ll definitely be adding one of their pieces to my new space and I can’t wait to share more about that.
Anyway I’m exhausted and guess what – my design internship is confirmed and starting in July! I CAN’T WAIT! And hope to share more about it here over the summer. Have a great weekend!
I want to read everything on Grace’s June reading list!
Love this affordable end table – definitely considering it for my living room.
Is Savannah the new Charleston? (I really want to go!).
The only thing that got me through unpacking (yes it’s ridiculous and I do not care).
LOFT has some great summer stuff right now – I love the color of the stripes on this tie-back tank, and this chambray drop waist dress is soooo cute. I also love the little pleat back detail on this easy breezy dress.
