THE WHOLE COVER CONTROVERSY: New York mag asks why people are so upset about the whole Vogue cover thing. Did you have an opinion about that kerfuffle this week?
ALL THIRTY-EIGHT: 38 restaurants that are essential to try in NYC. I’ve hit up exactly one…we’ve got a long way to go!
A GENIUS BEDSPREAD: Hate stuffing your comforter into your duvet? The wonderful folks behind Crane & Canopy have come up with a genius solution (watch the vid to see what I mean).
SPRING CLEAN YOUR DECOR: I loved Gab’s (beautifully designed) ways to spring clean by changing your decor. I’ve already replaced glassware and it makes me excited for summer fÃªtes, for sure!
BAD DOG!: I laughed out loud at sooo many of these. I need to make one for Lucy and post it here some day!
COMING UP ROSES: A beautiful, make-it-yourself rose scented body scrub. Heaven!
HELLO, SALES: Today’s the last day to get 25% off your purchase at J. Crew with the code HEYSPRING. I also noticed Nordstrom’s offering discounts of 30% or more off select accessories, spring items, and winter duds (it’s kind of a good, motley assortment).
FREE FONTS: And all of them are so cute!
ELEVEN THINGS: all women are supposed to have in their wardrobe slash style arsenal by the time they’re 30. The good news? This gives me an excuse to do some serious shopping before August.
BEHIND THE BIZ: She’s been a blog friend for, like, ever, so I loved reading more about behind the scenes at Alexandra Kaehler Design. Great interview, Meg!
Good GOD this week. This MONTH. Kiddos, I don’t know about you, but I’m so looking forward to April! This weekend, we’ll be in Texas for a friend’s wedding (congrats, Rach + Ben!), and then I’m going to stick around for a few days after to see the fam. At first I was all “Ohhhh mannnn!” when I realized the weather here in NY would be warming up over the weekend and early next week…and then Joe reminded me that it’s in the low 80s in Austin. Insert sunglasses emoji here. As well as a razor and shaving cream emoji, because hot damn, I need to shave my legs.
The wedding we’re going to is black tie invited, and I’m kiiind of excited for the dress I picked out. It’s floor length and I may or may not have worn it around the house a few times and twirled in it. When’s the last time you had a chance to dress up — like, really dress up — for a party? Besides my wedding, the last time I was in a dress as nice as this one was probably…prom.
I’m going to admit this right here and now — I already snapped my April picture for next week’s Month Ahead feature. Shhh! But that Central Park, she’s coming along nicely. Until Monday, friends!
