Our top priority this weekend? Some major R&R! We’ll be referencing the guide Whitney Leigh Morris put together and enjoying every minute. But, before we can kick up our feet, we’ve got a few links you need to have on your radar! Here’s what we loved most this week:

We recently discovered Wenna Privé – a talented fashion illustrator with major style. You can shop her work here (our favorite piece is Mademoiselle) or keep up with Wenna on Instagram. We think you’ll be a big fan, too!

Another artist we love recently opened the doors to her stylish San Francisco apartment. Head over to the Urban Outfitters Blog to look inside Aleksandra Zee’s beautiful apartment – filled with light, airy textures and plenty of custom-made furniture. We’re obsessed.

For our friends in the Bay Area, Birchbox + the Gap have teamed up and are hosting a fun event to celebrate! But don’t fret if you find yourself in another part of the country… there are parties all over! Click here to find one in your neck of the woods.

Isn’t it always a bummer when you buy a bouquet and the flowers die almost immediately? We love this tutorial on Shop Sweet Things for making blooms last longer… a LOT longer!

Don’t think we’d go through our favorite links without tooting our own horn, too. (Toot toot!) On Tuesday, #RueSummerKickoff hit digital newsstands! Have you seen it yet? The sun-soaked pages are filled with bright home tours, sweet treats, and your ultimate summer shopping list. Happy reading!
