Links on a Thursday


I wish I were staying at The Ritz this weekend, but the Hilton will have to do ;)

Bright and early tomorrow morning, we'll be heading to Cincinnati for my best friends wedding and I am SO so so excited.  Beyond ready to get the party started and get the two love birds m-a-r-r-i-e-d!  

Today is officially my Friday so before I go, a few of my favorite links from around the web this week...

+ If you follow me on Snapchat (@kavanderploeg), you saw my serious cookie fail on Monday.  Don't bother trying this recipe - I followed it exactly and ended up with flat, burnt cookies.  No bueno.

+ Tory Burch is having their private sale - all you need to do is sign on their email list to gain access (and get a 10% off coupon).  My favorites include these classic flats and this beautiful embellished bag.

+ Speaking of shopping, the oh so coveted J Crew herringbone vest is back!  Get it quickly because if history repeats itself, it won't be in stock for long.

+ I don't want to think about the f word yet (fall, come on now), but this is a great article on
11 different ways to prep your blog for fall this summer.  

Happy Thursday Friday!
