HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

links

I love seeing the spaces in which creative women work. Jenna Lyons certainly falls into that category. (It is, after all, where this magic happens.) Fast Company gave us this little peek in March, and the latest issue of Vanity Fair offers a even more of a look into the J.Crew Creative Director’s newest office – complete with Cherner chairs, loads of washii tape, and a neon green dinosaur!

Since we’re on the subject of chic offices, have you checked out this sale? With pops of color, super cool prints for the wall, and some vintage pieces, One Kings Lane will make your workspace the creative and inspiring hub it should be.

Next weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. (Where did the time go?) In order to give summer the proper send off, I think a picnic is in order. Rip + Tan gives us a recipe roundup with the season’s most essential ingredients. More watermelon, please!

Happy Birthday, Saved by the Bell! The hit ’90s TV show turned 25 years old this week. 25! Kind of hard to believe, isn’t it? I spent many-an-after-school-afternoon in front of the TV watching Zack, Kelly and the rest of the gang and their 30-minute schemes. If you can recall similar afternoons then this Bayside flashback will leave you feeling nostalgic.

There are so many fabulous new books coming out next month. (I’m going to share my entire pre-order list next week. Stay tuned!) At the top of my list? Assouline’s Young Hollywood. I love the work of photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank (her first Assouline book, American Beauty,  is still one of my favorites) and I just know this one will be a page-turner.

Take some time this weekend to peruse the new arrivals at Kate Spade Saturday. They’ve got the building blocks for a great fall wardrobe: basics like this and this that will become daily go-to’s.
