The Edit

It’s about time Friday rolled around… Anyone feel like this week was a long one? The good news is, amongst our daily duties we’ve had just enough time to scour the Web for inspiration to get us ready for the week ahead, and we’re spilling it all with you below (complete with our latest purchases of course, because we know we’re not the only ones who count online shopping as a totally acceptable weekend activity)…

I’m no stranger to incorporating vintage finds into my own home, so when I saw this photo it easily caught my eye. Don’t you just love that little gallery wall? –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

reformation nikita dress

2. Reformation Nikita Dress, $248
Whenever I leave the house for errands or a meeting, I like to throw something on that takes minimal effort but looks put together. I love this dress from Reformation because it does just that. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

Just a friendly reminder that none of us really have it all together… and that’s 100% okay. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

@thingtesting on Instagram

4. @ThingTesting on Instagram
I’ve found my new favorite Instagram account! @ThingTesting is run by a venture capitalist who reviews exciting new products created by innovative companies. I’ve learned about so many cool new brands through her account, and love her perspective on why she’s into a product. Plus, the aesthetic of the feed is gorgeous! Definitely give it a follow if you’re interested in innovative brands and products with beautiful branding. –Rachel, Managing Editor

pink madewell tee

5. Madewell Northside Vintage Tee in Light Petunia, $14.50
It was the bubblegum pink hue that really sold me, but this tee is also made of the softest cotton and has the perfect boxy, crewneck fit. You can’t beat the price either! –Ilana, Managing Editor

6. Emma Watson Interviews Rupi Kaur for Our Shared Self
Anyone that knows me can speak for my love of both Emma Watson and Rupi Kaur. So when I saw that Emma was interviewing Rupi, I knew it was going to be something special. If you’re familiar with either of these truly inspiring women, I suggest you watch this video. Get comfortable because it’s around 47 minutes long! –Jessi, Senior Editor

catbird sweet nothing rings

catbird threadbare rings

7. Catbird Sweet Nothing Ring, $44 and Threadbare Ring, $44
I have been an admirer of Catbird from afar for years, but for some reason never took the plunge to buy any of their pieces (even though so many are affordably priced!). I finally decided to swipe these two extremely dainty rings, and I am in love. They add the tiniest bit of sparkle to my fingers and they’re so comfortable it feels like I’m not wearing them at all. –Tessa, Associate Editor

j.crew sophie sweater blazer

8. J. Crew Sophie Open-Front Sweater Blazer, $138.00
I just bought this super soft sweater blazer (say that five times fast!) in J.Crew’s Labor Day sale and I can already tell I’m going to get a ton of use out of it. I got the “subtle pink” color, which goes perfectly with black leggings and tank top for the airport (and is cozy enough to keep me warm on freezing flights) and works equally well dressed up with a pair of jeans and heels. Trust me, once you try it on, you won’t want to take it off. –Kiera, Editorial Intern

the little market "do good" shopping tote

9. The Little Market ‘Do Good’ Shopping Tote, $10-$20
I’m always in need of a new reusable shopping tote, and this one from The Little Market is my favorite. Every purchase empowers female artisans in Bangladesh… plus, I love spreading the message to “do good” everywhere I go. –Rachel, Managing Editor

LC Lauren Conrad flan d'orsay flats

10. LC Lauren Conrad Flan D’Orsay Flats, $49.99
I don’t wear flats very often, so I prefer to pick up pairs that are of-the-moment and more on the affordable side. These d’orsay flats from Lauren’s latest collection for Kohl’s are my current favorites for fall; the military-inspired studs give them just a little edge, but the silhouette is still so ladylike! –Tessa, Associate Editor

Who fell in love with one (or all) of these things?
