Friday Favorites (28)

Friday, August 16, 2013

Happy Friday! I have lots of links for you this weekend, so let's get right to it:

Books, TV, and Movies
Loved this piece on Laverne Cox and Orange Is The New Black. Are you watching it? I'm ready to start.
I read How I Live Now in a Literature for Young Adults class in undergrad and loved it. The film looks like it's going to be amazing (I love Saoirse Ronan), but I'm curious to see what they do with the whole sex-with-her-cousin thing.

Fall makes me want to wear jeans and my favorite tees every day. I'm feeling the need to stock up at Everlane soon.
Currently on my wishlist: this bright jumpsuitthese little boots, and this fabulous watch.

Melissa is such a sweetheart. I appreciated her post on not offending when offended.
A beautiful post by Dani.
Maddie is so fun, and she can whip up a mean cocktail. See here and here.
I'm dying over Robyn's kayaking adventure in Canada. I'm not that outdoorsy, but something about having to paddle your way to a magical little hideaway sounds, well, magical.

Rob and I are taking engagement pictures at the end of September and I have been wondering what we're going to wear. Our photographer posted some tips on what to wear on her blog. Perfect timing, Ashley!
I would totally walk down the aisle to this song if the lyrics weren't so crazy. Think I can make it in forty seconds?
And while we're at it, if I lived in California, Joelle would so totally be my wedding planner.

The New Mumford & Sons Music Video Parodies Itself and It's Amazing. And I cried.
I'm loving this song so much, and the video is just as beautiful.
A Pep Talk from Kid President to You
She's a Legend covers Mad World. No big deal, that's just my brother's band.

Rob and I are hitting a rooftop happy hour this evening, and tomorrow I predict a night in with Pad Thai and a movie. There's still some unpacking to be done around here. What do you have planned this weekend?


  1. Pad Thai and movie night sounds awesome! I need to do that too. I've been craving Thai food.

    Also I need to watch Orange is the New Black ASAP. It's next on my watch list once I catch up with Breaking Bad.

  2. yes to Moth's Wings! All the bells (or bell-like electronic button pushing) makes it just sound like how being excited feels. Like "this is it!!!"

  3. I love those boots. I'm so excited for Fall to get back into all my boots!


  4. You sweet thing-thank you.

    Ps-that intro to the moth's wing song is amazing- sure you could do something with that and take the lyrics out. Beautiful.

  5. I absolutely love the "Same Love" video. I cried like such a little girl the first (and second, and third...) time I watched it.

  6. Cannot wait to see your engagement photos. I also think we can loop that beginning part over and over if you want for your song :)

  7. That Mumford and Sons video is gold - like seriously AMAZING!! laughed so hard my boss asked what was going on, lol!

  8. You should definitely try to make it down the aisle in 40 seconds :) - love that song!

  9. Thanks so much for including me Megan :) Hope you have a great weekend! xo

  10. :) Joelle IS my wedding planner. She is all kinds of amazing and completely calming. I wish you could have her plan your wedding too!
