Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 35

Pink building with black and white striped awnings in Palm Beach Florida with blue skies and palm trees on Worth Avenue.

It’s been a busy last few weeks around here! Last week, I was in Palm Beach, Florida for five days filming a fun project with Discover the Palm Beaches and Lilly Pulitzer. We had a packed itinerary (I think we shot in 20 different locations, both photo and video at each) so there wasn’t much downtime to explore on my own, but we did get to see and do so much as a part of the shoots! Even though I’ve visited before, there were so many new-to-me spots this time around, so I’ll be sure to compile everything we did into a blog post once I have the photos back from the production team.

And this coming week, I’ll be in Rhode Island for a project with Vineyard Vines from Tuesday-Friday! It’s a holiday shoot, so if there’s anything to catapult you out of a summer mindset after Labor Day Weekend, this will probably do the trick. 😂

Needless to say, this past week in Chicago was all about getting shit done. I basically had to cram three weeks of work, errands, and life to-do’s into a four day span this week, and my sanity levels have been rivaling Britney circa 2007 all week. May or may not have started crying at a nail salon when my nail tech told me to relax my hand, haha. Not even kidding… I felt like I was on the verge of tears all day and that was the straw that just broke the camels back. IT’S FINE, EVERYTHING IS FINE. 😂

No, but really… Everything is more than fine, it was just a stressful, busy week with a lot of moving parts. It’s finally Friday, though, and I could not be more excited! I turn 30 tomorrow…. Crazy, right? Talk about time flying. I truly feel like I just turned 26 yesterday. (Also probably partially why I’ve felt like I’m on the verge of a meltdown all week, haha.) But I’ve got lots of fun plans on the calendar with my friends over the long weekend, and I know it’s going to be one of the best weekends of the summer. Hope you’re able to soak up the last unofficial weekend of summer, too! xoxo jess

Here are this week’s finds…

For my Chicago gals: Rent the Runway is popping up for a sample sale at Water Tower (835 N Michigan Ave) on the 2nd Floor– September 5th through the 14th! Save up to 90% off designer rental clothing, handbags and accessories. I once found a dress I had been lusting over for *years* at one of their sample sales in NYC!

My friend Alicia (who happens to be an amazing photographer) just launched her Lightroom presets. You can find them here!

Blake’s (rental) bathroom makeover is all sorts of GOALS! I’m obsessed with that wallpaper.

Clara always has the best articles… But her latest on Medium (It’s a lesson, not a mini heartbreak.) was particularly great to read, as we had recorded our podcast episode the day before and texted about this encounter the next day!

How good is this suede midi skirt?!

Don’t miss Sail to Sable’s big Labor Day Sale! Use code LABORDAY19 for 50% off.

Intermix is also have a huge 30% off flash sale this weekend!
