Weekend Reads, No. 1

filed under:

Happy Sunday from Charleston! Many of you may recognize the format of this post from my posts titled “Highlights.” Well, I honestly didn’t like the name highlights and I didn’t like my practice of posting my link roundup on Fridays. Oftentimes, I wanted to post different content on Friday but was stuck with my highlights post so I’m shaking things up a little bit. My link roundup will now be a weekend blog post, which will give you time to read it at your leisure and give me the opportunity to post other fun content during the week. Otherwise, you know the drill… there’s a section on links from around the web, a section of my favorite shopping and sales from the week, and a recap of what I posted from the week. Happy Sunday loves and be sure you’re following me on Instagram (@jillianattaway) and Snapchat (@jilliana5590) to see my Charleston wedding planning trip!

2. Allison sent me this great Vogue article titled “Engagement Ring 101: When (and When Not) to Wear It, How to Clean It, Store It, and More.” I loved reading these tips!  (vogue.com)
