Links I Love Week 16

Links I Love Week 16

Happy Sunday from the airport in Puerto Rico. I’m currently on my way back to Chicago after 17 days of travel. I spent the first 10 days in Paris, and one week sailing in the British Virgin Islands for my 40th birthday. I am looking forward to a proper shower and sleeping in my own bed. Most of all, I cannot wait to see my best buddy, Henri. I hope you all are having a great Easter/Passover weekend. Grab your coffee and croissants (or matzah if you celebrate) and join me for this week’s links I love.

The dreamiest backyard wedding. This article shared so much of what I am looking for in my own wedding but with a few less people

This Boden swimsuit has quickly become a favorite. I bought it in a 6 in the blue navy color. It is so flattering especially if you have a larger chest. It has sold out in a lot of colors but I did snag a pink version to try. I wish I would have bought it in black.

12 of the best small towns in Italy. Researching for summer.

I recently saw this polka dot halter dress from Ann Taylor on another blogger and fell in love with it. This would be such a fun summer dress for a wedding or travel. 

There have been lots of questions on sizing on this Reformation dress I wore here. It runs true to size. I got a 4. It does arrive wrinkled in the mail so a good steam is all you need to get it looking fresh.

  1. Thanks for the Monica Vinader code! I picked up the earrings – thought they will make a great one-and-done pair for travel!

  2. My friend, even though we will never meet, I love reading about you. I am elderly and cannot travel. There are always ways to rise above: I travel via the Internet. It’s beautiful sitting in my wingback chair with a cup of coffee!! Thank you for Everyday Parisian.
