The Weekender: No. 240

Graham and Spencer

I majorly hit the reset button this weekend, after a action-packed week. This morning I woke up to a chill rainy day, so I took the opportunity to catch up on work, and organize my apartment. I slept, watched Netflix—it was exactly what I needed to recharge. The weekend didn’t go by without a few meals with friends—most notably Le Turtle, which might be my new favorite place in all of New York—décor-wise anyway. I coined it “nostalgia-chic” for its proficient use of squiggly neon signs, vertical blinds (yes, you read that right), and travertine everything (is travertine the new Carrara marble)? We went back to Narcissa—for dinner this time (with a cocktail stop at the Standard East beforehand). Today, I was in the mood for something more low-key, and my friend Amy knew just where to go—The Mermaid Inn nearby in the East Village was the perfect nautical-inspired spot to hunker down and wait for the rain to go away. The back room reminded me of the British pub in The Holiday, probably because they played the same song as in the movie as we walked in #moviemoment. Their happy hour snack specials was just a bonus.

 

WEEKEND SALES

I spent my weekend online shopping. J.Crew has an extra 30% off warm-weather styles, and I picked up the items below. I also discovered the magic of high-waisted pants, and I’m never going back! #thisis30

Also, not technically a sale, but a girlfriend told me about Rent The Runway Unlimited this weekend, and for $139 a month, you can get 3 pieces at a time, and keep them a long (or short as you want). I’m sold—especially after creating this wish list… Imagine the possibilities! Sign up here to get $20 off.
