  • Maxim and I just got into Winc (thanks to a wedding gift from our suave, Spanish friend) and we're so excited to try it out. 
  • A friend invented a 4-piece phone case set to keep you prepped for every situation life throws at you. 
  • In case you missed it, Maxi and I hired Riley to create a watercolor map for our wedding. And now we're madly in love with all of her incredible work. 
  • In my NEVER ENDING attempt to actually drink more than a cup of water, I bought this water bottle. 
  • Terrified, but excited, but terrified to rock these new ALL WHITE leggings to spin class.  
  • There's a new Instagram integration that allow you to buy Eventbrite tickets STRAIGHT from the app.

Whether I'm dropping my the Smithsonian's to see a new exhibit or having a coffee date with friends, I always make sure that I'm in an outfit that balances my fave street styles + comfort. Plus, my wardrobe is like 90% neutrals, so I usually stick to black jeans, black block heel booties + a top. Other weekend essentials?
