Welcome to this week’s Links + Loves!

This week was a treat on GWS! If you’re planning a wedding, listen up. We shared over 30 wedding backdrop ideas, over 20 adorable boho flower girl dresses, over 30 lingerie sets (go on, check ’em out), and finally, the best books to help you plan a personalized wedding day. We also saw some dreamy real weddings, including this one featuring disco balls (all the craze) and a bride in a jumpsuit! (More brides in suits this way…)

Here are a few things our editors are loving lately:

From Jen:

For the Friends and LEGO fan, LEGO just release the Friends Apartments! You can build Rachel + Monica’s Apartment, as well as Joey + Chandler’s! So many fun details and would make such a fun gift!! And if you love Seinfeld, they just launched a Seinfeld Apartment, as well!!!

If you love making cocktails at home you know how important the ice is. Jason + I recently got these new sphere ice trays and they are amazing! Work so much better than the other trays we had – plus make your drinks look SO GOOD!

Baublebar is having their semi-annual sale this weekend – 20% off all jewelry with code SEMI20. I’ve been eyeing these earrings for a fun ear party and these custom bracelets are so chic! These nameplate necklaces would make the sweetest gift!

From Katie:

It may be 90 degrees outside in California but that won’t stop me from buying my first pair of Dr. Martens! I don’t know which pair to get yet – likely a lace-up boot, but I need to do some research (these would also make for some cute wedding day boots!)

Zooey Deschanel is on Tik Tok now?! Immediate follow after this cute video she posted. HEY GIRL.

If I haven’t said this before – my favorite wine is currently the $3.99 Watermelon Moscato from Trader Joe’s. Tastes like summer!

From Britt:

This week I finished reading The Rose Code by Kate Quinn which I highly recommend if you love thought-out female characters and historical fiction. WWII, super-secret German code-breaking, a mental facility, Prince Phillip’s feisty ex-girlfriend. OMG I loved it.

We talked about this on our weekly call and it feels important to share: falling asleep laughing is the new falling-asleep-to-murder-mysteries. Please enjoy every season of Impractical Jokers on HBO Max.

And finally, a reminder.

From Sheena:

Madewell is basically my favorite store on planet earth. Almost every time I go into the store I treat myself to a bandana to add a pop of color to repeat outfits. I use them in my hair, around my neck, on my purse…literally everywhere. My two favorites are this classic red and this mustard one.

My other favorite summertime accessory is this bowtie scrunchie. It’s fun, playful, and since 90% of my wardrobe is black and white, it’s the perfect pop of color! Even better, they are 3 for $12, so you can mix and match your own little collection of adorable styles! Obsessed.

From Jaqueline:

I needed some new dressy-casual sandals and stopped into Target this week and found these super-cute (and comfy!) heels! They’re an affordable dupe for these popular shoes!

While I’ve been spending most of my nights this week keeping up with the Olympics, I’ve also been watching a few shows. Right now I’m hooked on the surfing documentary “100 Foot Wave” and the comedy-drama mini-series The White Lotus. I shamelessly started “FBOY Island,” too, and recommend it if you are a “Too Hot to Handle” fan.

Have a great weekend!
