Weekend Reads, No. 158

Charleston, South Carolina
filed under:

Happy Sunday! I’m here with a weekend dose of reading that includes some of my favorite links from around the internet this week + some can’t miss shopping & sales. My Weekend Reads, No.158 features an exclusive tour of the Kipps Bay Show House, an antiques email newsletter you need to know about, the #1 item I want for my house this spring, the best hotels on the Amalfi Coast, a splurge and save on the sandal style that is everywhere, a candid behind-the-scenes look at Dorsey, 10 tips to organize your photos, Aerin’s adorable children’s collection, Easter books we love in our house, the dreamiest kaftans, and much more!

Before we dive into all the wonderful links, some musings from the week… I’ve been craving organization and thinking a lot about aspirations. I think I aspire to be more organized. The two go hand-in-hand right now. Relatively, I am pretty organized but two little kids with one on the way requires a different level of organization. In our world, there are so many digital spaces to be organized in too. Those get me. I’ve gotten my computer, my cloud, and my Google drive completely organized down to every document and photo living in them but I need to update my Dropbox. I desperately need to organize my photos on my phone but my apps are in great shape. I just went through all the tabs open on my internet browser on both my computer and my phone (it was WAY too many), which felt liberating.

In fact, I have my finances incredibly organized thanks to Quicken but I need to get my taxes all updated and finalized before the baby. I need to update my Spotify playlists (this one is obviously less pressing but it is still something I’d like to do). I need to organize all my printed photos and frames in our house. Plus, I need to print some updated photos. I’ve been organizing like crazy within our house too… my children’s wardrobes are all up to date and organized and all our baby stuff is almost fully organized. I have a day on my calendar scheduled for doing one more closet clean out before the baby comes. And I have been tackling things like our bathroom drawers and cabinets, toy baskets, and children’s books.

I organized my file cabinet last week and that felt incredible. I hadn’t gone through it other than to grab or put away specific things in two years. Our shed needs some major love and our pantry needs a once over before the baby arrives. The list never really stops. Organizing is taking over my brain and I literally can’t stop. I want to walk into the hospital to have our baby and feel like I’m in a really good place before my life gets turned upside-down with a newborn. Will it happen? I sure hope so! Alright, now that I’ve moaned on and on about organizing my own life (P.S. if you have any organizational strategies or tips that have transformed your life, I’d be thrilled to hear them! Ex: Quicken transformed my financial organization last year. I love it!), it’s on to my Weekend Reads, No.158. Enjoy!

Weekend Reads, No.158

1. An exclusive tour of the 2024 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach that will leave you wanting to instill a deeper sense of personality and vibrancy into your own home. (veranda.com)

2. One of my new favorite things is receiving the email newsletter from The Parson’s Nose Antiques. It goes out once a week and includes tons of English antiques. It is such a fun peruse.

3. The Best Hotels on the Amalfi Coast With Spectacular Views, Private Beaches, and More. (contraveler.com)

4. RIP Irish Apfel. (nytimes.com)

5. Everyone has their own thoughts on lab grown stones. I am personally not a lab grown gal but I really admire the business that Meg Strachan has built with Dorsey. In fact, this is a great candid read on what it took for her to launch her business and find success. (marieclaire.com)

6. This is such an easy, delicious, and satisfying salad recipe as we move into warmer weather. (cookingwithcocktailrings.com)

7. A complete timeline for moving house. I don’t foresee us moving from our house for awhile but I found this timeline very interesting. (houseandgarden.co.uk)

8. A Provence Travel Diary for Gordes, France. My sister also says the hotel features, La Bastide de Gordes, is sensational. (stacieflinner.com)

9. Ten tips to organize your photos. I wish I could pay someone to have my brain for a day to do this for me, ha! But seriously. (artifact uprising.com)

10. How to get back into reading. (the stripe.com)

Shopping & Sales

1. Aerin’s Pottery Barn Kids collection is utterly precious. The standouts for me are this quilt, this baby blanket, this bunny, and also this rug.

2. A few Easter + springtime books for littles that we have and love to read this time of year: one, two, three, four, five, six, and seven.

3. The Byrdie Golf Social Wear Le Member-Guest Collection is tons of fun. I’m also craving a party to wear this midi dress to!

4. The price on this gorgeous midi skirt is too good to be true! I also love the eyelet detail.

5. Hands down, my favorite item that Asha produces is their kaftans that they launched last year. No surprise then that I love their newest kaftan style, the Celine.

6. I want to make a lemon ice box pie for Easter so I have citrus on my brain. These three lemon items from Les Ottomans are calling my name: cake stand, serving platter, and hand painted tray.

7. I’m dying to order this coconut butter from Cap Beauty.

8. The sandal style that continues to be everywhere: splurge and splurge versus save and save.

9. Blue jean baby.

10. Serena & Lily is having their Design Event of the Season Sale and offering between 15% – 70% off. Pretty major. I ordered this bedskirt for Rowan’s room so it’s now under $100 and am going to order some fresh crib sheets for Henry’s crib (we have these sheets so will be replenishing). Two other items I love are these stacking baskets (great storage for nursery and kids rooms!) and this tray. The best way to take advantage of the sale though is to search for exactly what you need (i.e. doing chairs, cribs, wallpaper, rugs, lighting, etc.) because everything is on sale).

11. At the top of my wish list: this shell print top and pants set! It also comes in smocked dress and a short sleeve dress. The price is great!

12. Is it absurd that this is the #1 item I’d like to add to my house right now? It’s going on my birthday wish list as I’m a May baby. I also ADORE this in light of the current season of life I’m in. In addition, this girl bunny and this boy bunny are marvelous for Easter.

With Love From JE.com

1. A look at my Easter Shop! More Easter finds here – I’ve updated my shop even since my post went up on Friday.

2. I also chatted with Over the Moon and created my dream baby registry, share scoop on our baby names, spilled some mom advice, and more! Can’t believe our 3rd baby is coming this month!

3. My Palm Beach Travel Guide got an update!

4. Caught My Eye No. 8: a brand new design coffee table book from one of Charleston’s brightest creatives that serves as a love letter to what makes a personal and meaningful home, the new swim collection for littles that will make you want to head to the beach asap, a new curated antiques venture that is not to be missed, the women’s and littles pajamas collection my boys and I are loving, the new-to-me children’s accessory that I am absolutely smitten with, a limited edition pantry staple/hostess gift to get your hands on before grilling season, a spring children’s collection full of smocking + scallops + ruffles, and more.
