I fell in love with this quote the moment I saw it. It is so simple, and yet, so true. The perfect start to the weekend. This post will be short and sweet - I don't have much today as I'm busy getting ready for my best friend's wedding, which is in Pittsburgh, and as I'm writing this, I am absolutely procrastinating the packing and preparing I should be doing instead. I'm IN the wedding for god sakes, you think I would be more prepared but I digress. 

1. To all you New Yorker's paying pretty much your whole life savings towards your rent every month: I know you don't want to put any more money into that shoebox than necessary, but here are 5 ways to renovate your apartment without breaking the bank (aka under $100).

2. Calypso St. Barth is offering 20% off pre-fall items through 8/3. I am absolutely swooning over this calf hair clutch, and this fur vest - you just cannot go wrong with a fur vest EVER. It comes in two colors and I literally wish I could get both immediately. 

3. Don't forget to check out the Rag & Bone sale before it's over - sooo many good pieces including their famous boyfriend jeans that I've been wearing on repeat this summer.

4. 4 steps for investing, for all of you girls who feel like stocks and the market are a foreign language. Ya feel me?

5. If you don't get the emails for the Julie Vos Friday deals, then you need to sign up. She offers about 6-8 of her pieces at an extreme discount every Friday - such a good deal!

6. What do you guys think of the short suit? I think they're so chic, if you're daring enough to wear shorts to the office...

7. I know I've listed a lot of sales, but the Aritzia one is definitely huge. They only have it a couple times a year, so it's a can't miss for sure!

And I'm off to Pittsburgh! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
