Weekend Morning Reads | No. 01

Weekend Morning Reads | Rachael Adele Lifestyle Blog

Happy weekend, friends. I thought I’d start sharing the occasional post on what I’m reading around the interwebs. I begin most Saturday mornings curled up with a cup of coffee, catching up on articles I didn’t have the time to read during the week in an attempt to wake myself enough to head to the gym.

What are you up to this Saturday? I have some consulting work and photo editing to wrap up this morning and then it’s all play from here on out. The temps are finally supposed to rise to 70 degree today (phew!). Does that mean spring is here for good? Patio margaritas are on the agenda over here. I’m hoping to see Beauty and The Beast at some point, too. Dying of excitement.

Here are a few morning coffee links:

12 recipes for when you don’t feel like cooking (ugh. me, every night.)

This article isn’t new, but I found it so interesting. Whether your single or attached, this is a great read on what creates a successful relationship.

J.Crew has created their own holiday and I plan on celebrating accordingly.

Admittedly, I’ve been searching for the perfect pieces to pack for Paris for over a month now. My trip isn’t until the end of April, so I’m probably jumping the gun, but I’m thinking lots of easy pieces like this dress and this one.

Spring cleaning is upon us. I did some organizing and purging this week and have been thinking of refreshing my space with a new rug for the dining room, a coat of white paint in the bathroom, and some new art in the living room. Serena & Lily is having their friends & family sale and I may try to knock a few things off my list this weekend. Use the code MUSTHAVE for an extra 20% off.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve updated the shop page with my favorite spring pieces. Home + beauty to be added soon.

Jenna Kutcher’s podcast, The Goal Digger podcast is one of my favorites to listen to, and the episode with Jess Lively (who’s podcast I also love) really struck a cord in my heart this week. They discuss how most people wait for an event to trigger their mood and frequency each morning, but ultimately that can and should be decided by you. It’s made me want to be more intentional about how I start my day. Being kind to yourself and choosing happiness can make all the difference. The episode is full of other incredible nuggets of knowledge, I’d highly suggest a listen when you have the time.

A few more noteworthy sales happening:
West Elm: 20% off with code SCORE
LOFT: Up to 40% off
Joie: Up to 25% off

Hope your weekend is full of all the good things in life. xo


My Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Winter Wardrobe Essentials | Rachael Adele Lifestyle Blog

This winter, I realized I’d collected a whole slew of jeans with holes in them and sweaters with (intentional) rips and side slits. I love distressed denim, but it’s not the most practical for 3 to 4 months of 20 degree and below temps. I set out to be intentional about my purchases for these colder months – a good pair of boots, dark denim that could be worn with said boots, and a few good quality sweaters and cold weather accessories.

I’ve successfully curated a collection of solid winter go-to’s and thought I’d share the ones I’ve been going back to time and time again this season. I have a simple and neutral approach to fashion that conveniently makes mixing and matching a breeze. My Chelsea boots are on sale and this oversized sweater has been one of my favorite pieces this winter.

Mother nature’s been a real B this week, making it difficult to shed those midwestern stereotypes, so I really wouldn’t mind getting out and heading someplace new. But it’s shaping up to be a nicer weekend than I’d thought, so at home I will be!

As the unofficial beginning of summer, Memorial Day weekend really shows up with it’s sales, making it a great time to buy staples for the upcoming season.
