Happy Saturday my friends! 

Ok, I'm really trying to get better about posting consistent "series." I like that it gives you something to look forward to, and I admit it makes my life easier knowing that I have a "category" to work on. That's a long way of saying that I'm bringing back the Saturday Smattering post.


I hope you have some fun plans this weekend! I'm heading to Westchester to go cake tasting with my friend. She is using the same bakery that we used for our wedding (Beascakes) so I am especially excited to go back! Their carrot cake and chocolate chip cookies are to die for...I have a feeling there is a doggy bag in my future.

A few things that caught my eye recently...

How to get this classic up-do.

A lust-worthy vacation compound.

If you're in the market, Madewell is offering an EXTRA 40% off sale prices with the code ENDLESS. I would love this tote and these sandals.

What's so scary about smart girls?

The value of a mentor.

There's just a few more days to take advantage of Nordstrom's gigantic anniversary sale. It's a great time to buy a classic boot or fall coat. This one reminds me of one of my favorite's from last year (and it's under $100!).

Everything about this 550 square foot home is perfect.

And as always, you can follow along on FacebookPinterestTwitter and Instagram.
