Weekend Reads

My second official installment of Weekend Reads (aka 1 millionth Highlights post) is here! I’m coming to you live from Palm Spring where I’ve been completing my duties as a bridesmaid by pooling, giggling, drinking, and dancing all weekend in the hot, hot desert. It’s been a blast and I kind of can’t believe that I return to work tomorrow for a new school year! But first, I’m going to enjoy Sunday.

Pink Building in Charleston with Palm Trees

5. How chic is this pebbled leather travel makeup bag? Thinking I need one and that it would be a great gift for friends if it’s monogramed!

6. Blaque Label = a new-to-me line that I’m really loving! They have lots of fun party skirts and gorgeous dresses (that aren’t too expensive).

7. This mini bag currently has my attention in a major way. I’m wondering if and when I can add it to my closet!
