Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 5/27/11

2011 May 27

It’s the Friday before Memorial Day Weekend–I hope that means everyone’s in a good mood! This weekend kicks off the start of a very busy summer, with visitors, Joe’s play, a couple of trips, weddings, plenty of outdoor eating, and our own wedding planning–we have just about every weekend through the summer booked up so far!

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Best of the Looks:


Pants in bold brights seem to be everywhere this season, and I’m contemplating whether to jump on the bandwagon. I especially love this cobalt pair on Marian Kihogo (spotted via B Jones Style).

How cute are these Lela Rose for Payless flats? (I know…Payless!)

This polka dot dress is party perfect. (via Calivintage)

From now until May 29th, you can bring any unwanted clothing to Gap and they will donate it to Goodwill on your behalf. Oh yeah, and also give you 30% off your entire purchase. (via The Budget Babe)


Best of the Books:

This tote is fantastic. (via Bookshelf Porn)

You can read a superb excerpt from Mindy Kaling’s forthcoming book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). (It’s like she’s inside my head…but I don’t want her to leave.)

The Periodic Table of Storytelling.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!

    Great round-up! I loved all of these links. Glad to hear the tip about the GAP/Goodwill donation too…might help me motivate on cleaning out the closet over the weekend.

    Happy long weekend…aah, summertime.

    I love those flats! I got some of her wedges at Payless and sadly I seem to be in-between sizes…
