    the weekend reading posts that I put up on the blog are some of my favorite posts to pull together. over the course of any given week, I come across countless fascinating articles, and it's really fun to have an organized space in which to share them. but, I recently decided to expand these posts a bit to include other fun links and bits & bobs - as well as a brief round-up of emma mckinstry activities from the week, and concluding with a guiding verse. hope you like this extended format, and leave a comment below with any feedback / thoughts. happy friday, everybody!
    there's very little I love more than a powerful comeback story, and this one is absolutely beautiful and inspiring.
    my husband (slash photographer) and I are relative newbies to the lifestyle photography world, and we've been focusing on learning as much as we can about getting great shots. this recent lemon stripes post covers the basics really well, in an easy-to-understand way.
    I don't typically spend much time on craigslist, but someone posted this (from the missed connections section) on facebook earlier in the week, and it brought tears to my eyes. literally. it's a wonderful human story, certainly worth taking a couple minutes to read.
    for somebody who's terrible with names, this list of tips from inc.com is really helpful. definitely doing to be testing some of these out over the weekend.
    this skirt will be on its way to my closet in just a few minutes (as in: as soon as this post is up...).
    sweater weather = boots weather, and these boots are to die for. and they're super affordable. win-win!
    saks off 5th and neiman marcus last call - two of my favorites for incredible deals - are both cutting prices even further all weekend long. (see each site for full details).
    it's starting to get colder here, which means it's time to break out the outerwear. and I'm completely obsessed with this - every detail is perfection. also, this one.
    a plaid blazer is a total fall must-have. see how I styled mine recently for a trip to the UK arboretum.
    our best-selling cleo earrings are now available in navy & white - the ultimate failsafe color combo!
    who needs new boots? I've rounded up a few of my favorites for the season, here.
