Good morning, friends! Hope everyone’s first-Saturday-of-April has gotten off to a lovely start. This week seemed to fly by with photo shoots, lunch meetings, a store grand opening party and yesterday, took off work early to have lunch in the sunshine with Phoebe and my mom, followed by stops at this charming shop and this one, too. It reminded me that no matter how busy life seems to be, it’s always worth it to hit pause and enjoy a beautiful day, especially when it involves great food and getting inspired by beautiful things. Speaking of which, if you’re in the Austin area, I’d love for you to stop by the Etsy pop-up shop I’m curating at West Elm today! There’s going to be an incredible group of designers selling art, crafts and other handmade goods in the store – and I’ll be hanging out all afternoon, so stop by and say hello! Hope you all enjoy the day, wherever you are, and take a few minutes to dig into my fave links from this week:

Love the simple, restrained design of this table, with a totally unique floral look.

This skate party is co-hosted by two of my favorite gals in town…and will be a total blast, no doubt.

A circus-themed birthday in Mexico is one of the cooler kids’ parties I’ve seen.

Congrats to my friend Erin on her pretty new look!

This summery recipe makes me excited for tomato season.

I want a new hat, and I’m thinking about scooping up this one (via Jen.)

*and a few fun things you may have missed!

Ana showed us a few great ways to dress up a t-shirt.

Elizabeth took us on a foodie tour of New Orleans.

Jeanine made a salad that can adapt to whatever you’ve got in your fridge.
