The Friday Five | 5.24.24

Here’s to the long weekend! We are going to enjoy our bonus day off here and we have some fun things we are doing as a family. Here’s what caught my eye this week…


Draper James x Tretorn

The cutest take on the Tretorn Rawlins Elite in this limited edition collection offered in 3 colors…


Mark & Graham Memorial Day Sale

Mark and Graham’s MDW Sale has begun! I’m linking some of my favorites that are in the sale here for you in the graphic below. It’s a great time to shop luggage sets and weekender bags for summer. I have those raffia twill & leather travel bags with the ribbon detail and they are so durable and look even better in person. We got so many compliments on them last summer. I am going to take those up to Maine on vacation soon again. Such a great sale with up to 60% off and additional 20% certain styles. Also, free shipping on orders of $150+.

Lobster Roll Season

We stopped off at Lobster Landing on the Connecticut shoreline to partake of one of our favorite treats of the warm weather months–the hot buttered lobster roll. This spot is our favorite in Connecticut. Nothing fancy, just a darn good lobster roll. If you are local, try them out.


J. Crew Swim Sale

J. Crew has a great MDW sale going on and all my favorite one piece swim suits are heavily discounted right now. When I wear a one piece, I have to get long torso and J. Crew is so good at offering that every season. All of these are offered in long torso, reg, and petite. Great time to snag a couple on sale!

Wallpaper Projects

With summer break almost here, I’m going to have more time to work on our home projects. I have a few more spaces I’m going to wallpaper this month. My Thursday rainy day activity was starting to select wallpaper for these spaces. I’m loving the direction our home is going. I’m mixing in grasscloths, stripes, florals, and patterns and it’s making a beautiful backdrop. I can’t wait to show you what I’m working on next…

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend!
