Can’t believe that August is here! This has been one of those weekends that makes me wish summer would last forever. Patio brunching with friends, swimming for hours, grilling dinner at dusk with a glass of rosé in hand… It’s definitely my favorite time of year. Although I have to admit that I did spend a teeny bit of time checking out some of the new fall collections and bookmarking a few items on my wishlist. Have you been bitten by the fall shopping bug yet? It always happens so early for me! Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, and enjoy my favorite reads from around the web this week! xo
