TGIF friends! Are you all as looking forward to the weekend as I am? The cold spell here in Dallas, which I have loved, is making it hard for me to jump out of bed at my usual pre-dawn time. Looking forward to staying bundled under the covers a little later these coming days.
So. Here we are. Volume 27 of my weekend links. A random Friday collection I throw together of articles, shoppables, interiors, people – anything that is inspiring me that week. Each week as I put these together, I wonder, what do YOU dear reader like to hear from me about? Not just in these weekly links…but in general. What kind of topics / posts would you like me to cover? What are you excited to learn or see more about in 2018? I’d love to hear your comments in the comments section below, or by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For now, some links of happy from around the web this week:
I obsess over clothing from Apiece Apart, and in my fantasy closet – this would be one of the main labels I’d own season after season. Easy casual, yet polished pieces, with just the right touch of whimsy + color to keep them youthful and creative. Yes and yes. More than their clothing tho, I love how they use their brand presence to highlight women doing cool work in the world. They talk about the women’s life experience, their learnings + hardships FIRST with a smaller focus on style. Going deeper into conversations with real people doing real things. This is super inspiring and something I’d love to see a lot more brands doing these days. A recent favorite is this interview with Catherine Bailey, 1/2 of the husband-wife duo responsible for reviving Heath Ceramics (my fantasy kitchen stock up would come from here:). This line from Catherine, ringing so true: What I wish I had known 10 years ago—but I need it more now—is to make sure I take the time to create a vision for where I want to go. To sit down and write out that vision. – Catherine Bailey
It’s long been a dream of mine to give a TED Talk. Nevermind the fact that I am an introvert who has reluctantly learned to speak publicly in a painful, slow, 15 year timetable. This article on why we should ALL write our own TED Talk. So so good. In a world where everyone is a brand, and everyone is seeking deeper meaning. Pausing for a moment to think on your own story, your vision, how you can inspire others and be true to you…HUGELY worth the effort, no? And if you’re not there yet, but just need to hear one heck of a cool talk – check out Emilie Wapnick on the topic of the idea of our “one” true calling – or for some of us, the many callings + the superpowers that come from this multi-faceted pursuit.
A great read on learning to listen to your inner voice and knowing when to take a different path. Follow your gut, take stock, take a different path…
This new-to-me blog for beautiful interiors + color combos. Love this Lima architect’s tight eye + edit of visual lovelies she curates and highlights on her blog. Bookmarking and pinning repeatedly…
Happy weekend! Happy rest + relaxation! And don’t forget to let me know your thoughts on what you’d like to hear of more in these pages in the coming months.
