Weekend Notes: 01.24.15

Have Less, Do Less Be More

Hands down, Saturday is my favorite day of the week.  It’s the one day of the week that I feel like the world is my oyster and the opportunities are endless. Despite the fact that it’s supposed to snow a sort of rain-slush mix today, I’m planning to get out of bed early to hit the gym and catch up on wedding planning, then grab brunch with a few favorites in the afternoon.  To get your day started, I’ve rounded up a little link love this week:

Let’s start off with this essay about 15 ways to avoid blogger burnout.  As someone who’s juggling a full-time job, blogging on nights and weekends and wedding planning in between, I don’t think I’ve read an article that has resonated so deeply before.  Even if you don’t blog, it’s still great insight into leading a happier, more well-balanced life.  Everybody wins!

A pop of red cured the winter blues earlier on the blog this week.  That’s why I need this sweatshirt and this flippy skirt in my life.

First C.Wonder, now Piperlime is shutting down by the end of April.  Times are rough, man.

It’s still only January, but florals are starting to bloom … in purses, pumps and pretty little skirts.

Because of this gadget, the fiancé and I have really stepped up our cooking game at home.  So far, we’ve made butternut squash and creamy tomato soup, but would love to hear your favorite recipes!

I scored this maxi dress and this lace cut-out number at the Rent the Runway sample sale this weekend.  If you’re in town, it’s worth the visit!

Abercrombie & Fitch was my first retail job in college, so it was interesting to read this article about the rise and fall of the brand.  Remember when we all wore ripped jeans, flip flops and popped collars?  No?  Me neither …

Not that I need any more leopard shoes, but damn.

Dying over how adorable Courtney looks in her Paris-meets-Brooklyn look.

This trench cape will be mine.

Our travel guide books for our honeymoon just came in, so you better believe we’re majorly wanderlusting this weekend.  Have you ever been to Greece or Italy?  We’d love your recommendations!

    I’ve been wanting to read that A&F article so I’m glad you included it! In middle school it was all the rage to wear head to toe A&F and I’m very glad that time has passed haha
