Hope you had a fabulous Derby weekend! I got a bizarre phone call on Friday — I shared this story on SnapChat, if you’re interested (username: jessicasturdy) — so I wasn’t really feeling up for a full-fledged Derby party on Saturday. Instead, I ate a ton of food and drank a lot of rosé with Hallie and Grace… Naturally.
I meant to get my usual Weekend Reading post up over the weekend, but I spent Sunday mostly unplugged, laying on a blanket in Central Park. Much, much needed! So we’ll just call this Weekly Reading this week. 😉
Do you remember FTD, the company that Hallie & I went to the Rose Bowl with? They’re running a really fun promo for Mother’s Day right now… You can enter on Instagram or Facebook! Considering my mom tagged me on their promotion kick-off Instagram last week (not kidding — and yes, I got the hint, Mother), you know it’s a surprise gift that your mom will be sure to love for the entire year! Make sure you enter this week — contest ends on Saturday and the winner will be announced on Mother’s Day (this Sunday!).
I have these in the basket-weave leather, but I am in love with this stripe pair! And they’re on major sale.
This sounds entirely too enticing. I can’t wait to follow along!
I’m obsessed with these sandals! (They’re under $65!)
I’ve read this article over and over and over. Definitely makes you think!
Talbots has a really cute selection of sandals right now.. and they’re all currently 30% off! My favorites: this suede tassel pair, these jute heels, this braided pair, this leather tassel pair, and this strappy pair.
I just started reading this book. I’ll keep you posted!
