We’re needing to take a moment and accept the fact that August is already here. How that happened, we’re not entirely sure… but it is so wild how quickly the past few months have gone. Perhaps it is all the beautiful little distractions we find on the web!! Speaking of…  without further adieu, here’s what caught our eye this week:

We’re always huge fans of the unique and innovative content Refinery 29 pumps out each day- it’s one of our daily reads! This Monday, they unveiled a brand new look! We’re loving the fresh new logo and how they’ve changed the layout. It looks amazing, R29 team! We can’t wait to see what you do next.

Also new this week, the uber-talented force behind Who What Wear launched a brand new beauty site- Byrdie!! It is brimming with insider tips, fun tutorials, and like everything this team does- is beautifully done. Bravo, Byrdie!

We don’t typically celebrate the end of summer- in fact, we’re often quite sad to see it go. But with the Zara’s new fall campaign out- we’re sort of counting the days until it’s cold enough for thick, structured jackets and gorgeous black boots. Cooler weather is sounding (and looking!!) pretty amazing right about now.

In other fashion news (and this is a BIG one), H&M is finally available to purchase online in the US! Gone are the days of digging through racks in your local mall store- you now have access to of-the-moment fashions without leaving the comfort of your computer. We have our eye on this amazing quilted jacket.

On the blog i suwannee, the Furbish Studio team is showing how to style 1 gorgeous chair a few very different ways. We love how easy it is to entirely change a little corner of your home with a few minor details. Which look is your favorite??

Since Fridays are sweeter with flowers, we’re so glad that Liz of Late Afternoon put together a bright bouquet on her blog. Plus, the vegetable of the moment makes an appearance in this leafy arrangement paired with pops of purple. So unique and gorgeous!!

Before we head out for the weekend, we wanted to make sure you saw our latest series on our tech column, Plugged In. We’re chatting with social media mavens to share insider tips for creating a cohesive online brand AND growing your following. First up? Our very own Maia McDonald– a Pinterest superstar.
