The Link Up: Emily’s Designer Clog Dupes, A YouTube Series We Unexpectedly Love, And The Comfiest Dress On Our Bodies This Week

IT’S….TIIIIIMMMMEEEEEE (*said in boxing announcer voice*). Welcome, welcome everyone to another rendition of the Link Up from Style by Emily Henderson – HA. We’ve had a week, and I’m sure ya have too, so let’s dive right in and check out some fun links we’ve gathered for ya on this fine Sunday.

FIRST-OFF. This week’s home tour is the home of the amazingly talented broadway legend, Sutton Foster. She worked with Michael Ostrow, co-founder of Grace Home, to pull together an incredibly charming, collected home. The space is STUNNING and we’re huge fans of the green lacquer room…don’t skip this one. What’s your favorite part of the home??

From Emily: I finally found an outfit to wear on Good Morning America, if you tuned in THANK YOU. It was all about this dress layered with this shirt underneath, then I wore this bag from parker clay (it fits a laptop perfectly which I love) paired with this strap from Clare V. While live TV is wildly nerve-wracking, at least I felt dressed for the occasion 🙂 See the segment here if you’d like to see me in action with Michael Strahan.

Also From Emily: Ooh yah. Guys – Emily Henry’s new book “Book Lovers” (buy local here and Kindle here) came out last week and became an immediate New York Times bestseller. I felt strangely emotional reading her Instagram post about it. As someone who started out as a literature major, obsessed with all things Faulkner and Hemingway, I too have diversified and find such glee in watching women buck the system, shed the expectations that they had of themselves in college and write something that taps into the women’s emotional market in such a funny, insightful and entertaining way. I started the book this week and I’m loving it (I saved it for the plane home where instead I wrote a 6-hour article about the happiness conference Brian and I attended). I can’t wait to finish it. While I read a lot of romance novels both contemporary and regency, her voice is the one I relate to the most. And fun fact, she is a reader and follower:) Now we DM because listen, if this social media has one healthy thing to offer it’s connecting us with the people we admire. If you are looking for an immediate hook of a novel, one that settles the part of your brain that is busy and makes you want to “go to bed early” then pick this up.

From Mallory: I tried on this dress at Madewell for yesterday’s post and I’m highly considering going back and ordering it…it’s SO comfortable and super stylish. It’s tight in all the right places and loose in the other places and I’m a huge fan. Plus the fabric is VERY SOFT. I went into my closet yesterday to pick out what to wear and I literally thought “booo I wish I had that Madewell dress because I would totally put that on right about now” So yeah, it’s good.

Also from Mallory: IT’S BACK. My favorite coffee flavor in the world, Iced Coconut was a limited edition last year and I loved it so much that during the “last call” for iced coconut, I bought 10 packs. Jess and Ajai both witnessed it and thought I was insane. It’s so delicious I have no shame, now Jess drinks them too in the smaller pods! It’s so delicious I cannot stop talking about it… hey @nespresso sponsor me!

From Caitlin: May be late to the party on this one, but I’ve just discovered Rajiv Surendra’s YouTube series with HGTV and y’all NEED to check it out. I originally clicked on this 17-minute video of him thrifting in Chicago on a rainy day because I was like “HEY, that’s the guy from Mean Girls! I wonder what he’s like in person,” and I’ve been BLOWN AWAY. The closest comparison I can think of is Bob Ross – he has such a calming energy and such a gentle way of educating viewers (oh, and Rajiv is like, SUPER smart too – he knows all about furniture and decor history!!!). His house tour is so cool – you GOTTA see what he did with chalk, it’s incredible – and it’s just been so fun stepping into his thoughtful, intentional, sustainable little world. I hope you enjoy his videos as much as I do

From Jess: If you’ve been following this blog for a while, I’m sure you also have at some point coveted Emily’s Rachel Comey clogs. They are the coolest and understandably not cheap. I have good news though! As I was browsing for wedding guest shoes, I stumbled up these more affordable bomb dupes that are good! Just a little tip from me to you 🙂

Also from Jess: I just got a new candle from Target that I really love! It’s Palo Santo and Thyme and it’s a just a nice spring scent. Plus it’s a big one that’s only $14.

That’s all for this week! Thanks for tuning in, it’s been a blast. See you in the AM xx
