Honestly, I felt like I was playing catch-up for most of this week. As I mentioned before, my schedule recently changed and I’m still adjusting. However, this week when I left work, it was light outside and that is everything. I have a few fun activities planned for the weekend. Tonight I’m getting drinks/catching up with a former work colleague. Tomorrow I’m planning to do brunch and a little bit of shopping with another friend (watch out wallet). Three cheers for longer days and warmer weather!

– Victoria wrote a fantastic post on the life lessons she learned while living in NYC. Seriously, go read this and you’ll see why she’s one of my favorite bloggers.

– I liked Jackie’s post on her recent reads. I think we have similar tastes!

– I love this swingy striped dress. Bring on the easy, breezy, spring clothes.

– Kimberly wrote a great post on chic flats for spring. The timing is perfect because I’m in the market for new shoes. As much as I sometimes wish I was a heels girl, in reality it’s flats all day, every day.

– An interesting article about why the movie Serena went straight to video (even though it stars J. Law and and Bradley Cooper). I actually read the book a couple years ago and didn’t like it. Based on this article, it sounds like the movie isn’t that great either.

– One of my favorite beauty vloggers, Hey Claire, just rebooted her blog. I love the Closet Confidential post she wrote on memories surrounding an item from her closet (basically like a #TBT for clothes). It got me wondering whether I have any clothes that bring up fun memories!

P.S. Just wanted to give a little shoutout to my mom and little bro because it’s their birthday today! Yes, they do have the same birthday!

    • Thank you! I’ll pass along the well wishes to them :) I hope you’re having a good weekend too!

  • Happy birthday to your mom and brother! That’s crazy that they have the same birthday. I’m also in the search for the perfect flats and some of those pointy ones are calling my name ;)

    • Haha, people are always so surprised when I used to say that we were celebrating two birthdays on the same day! :)

    Thanks for sharing the Serena article–the seriously-delivered line “no one’s jigging now” is going to make me laugh for daaaays. And happy birthday to your fam!

    • Happy to- I thought the Serena article was really interesting. Haha, yep, that was a good line! Thank you!

  • Very interesting about Serena, and it’s funny, because in my time I’ve watched so many bad movies, often with big names attached, and I always kept thinking, “But why would all these people sign on to this? Who thought this movie was a good idea?” I suppose, like the author of the article said, the pitch sounded great, but a million tiny bad decisions were made and it all fell to bits.

    Chic on the Cheap

    • I don’t know much about the movie industry, so I’d never really considered all the work it takes to get from an idea to an actual movie that’s released. The article drew me in because I knew that they were adapting the book into a movie and the release date kept getting pushed back. The fact that it went straight to video with those major names attached is bonkers to me, but it just goes to show how complicated it all is!

  • So happy to be introduced to new bloggers! Love these links. Hope you had a great weekend!!
