HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

this and that // July 27, 2012

Happy Weekend! This week was jam packed full of things – the new blog design, guest posts, and deadlines at work. The good news is that when you’re that busy, the week seems to just fly by. And that’s good because I’ve been so excited about this weekend that I don’t think I could have waited much longer. Today is my boyfriend’s birthday (happy! happy!), and, to celebrate, we’re headed to Santa Fe, New Mexico for the next few days. Have any of you ever been there? Recs are welcome! It’ll be my first time, and I can hardly wait. It’s been on my to-visit list for awhile. On our list of activities: eating and drinking (first and foremost, obviously), visiting the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, heading to the galleries on Canyon Road, and squeezing in a little shopping in The Plaza. I’m hoping to come home with a turquoise piece (or two?). I can’t think of a better way to celebrate.

In the meantime, here are three links from the week that I think you all will enjoy:

  • Olivia Palermo. I really couldn’t stand her on The City, but I can’t deny that her style is pretty much perfection. She’s just fun to look at. Her latest spread in Tatler Russia is no exception.
  • I adore Jamie Meares. Nobody knows how to bring color (and print!) to a home quite like she does. Check out her Raleigh house project for some eye candy.
  • Vogue’s Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl feature – love it! Who doesn’t want a little behind-the-scenes peek at the Vogue staffers’ style? The latest one highlights Bookings Editor Valerie Boster in Montauk. It just scream summer – and it makes me want a neoprene wet suite and a surf board.

Any fun plans for the weekend? Enjoy it!
