Weekend Notes

Happy weekend, y’all! It’s sure to be a hot one here in Austin, and luckily we’ll be staying cool with not one but two kids’ birthday pool parties today. Crossing my fingers there’ll be snow cones. Tomorrow I’m super excited to be speaking at Texas Style Council and meeting lots of the best fashion bloggers in the biz (yikes, guess I should start thinking about my outfit!) Will any of you guys be there? If so, please stop by and say hello! These summer days are flying by, and I’m determined to grab just a few more laid-back, unhurried moments in the sunshine before fall is officially upon us. How are all of you soaking up the last bits of summer? I’d love to hear in the comments, and hope you enjoy a few of my favorite links from around the web this week!

Have y’all seen the homewares shop Urbanara? This behind-the-scenes video of their towel-making process in Portugal is surprisingly inspiring.

Love everything that the girls from A Beautiful Mess do, so it was such a treat getting a peek at Emma’s wedding.

Have a feeling this nutrient-packed Flavour Bomb Greens n’ Noodles will become a new weeknight staple at our house.

Remember our tour of Athena’s Amagansett home? This peek into her closet is every bit as envy-inducing.

How amaze is this gnome-themed birthday party?

If I bake one thing this weekend, it’s going to be this blackberry lemon cake.

This amazing floral workshop by Kristen & Bri makes me want to bust out my shears and start arranging. Great job ladies!

*and a few fun things you may have missed!

In honor of our new slideshow design, we rounded up our 10 fave posts from the past year!

This ginger-berry chia seed pudding is what I want to eat every morning.

Wishing we could have a wine & cheese tasting party every week!
