    The News: Stream the Wes Anderson Tribute Album!
    Finally, I Saved Latin!, otherwise known as the Wes Anderson tribute LP, has arrived. With cameos from indie artists like Generationals and Saint Motel, it's the easiest way to pretend your Friday morning is straight out of Moonrise Kingdom. 

    The Look: Ioanna Gika from IO Echo
    The frontwoman from IO Echo has been my girl crush for a while now, so it's long overdue that I channel the singer with my closet. Flowy kimonos and tie-dye denim shorts and black booties might seem weird on paper, but all it takes is one glance at her rad outfit to see that it totally works. Hello, new weekend uniform?

    The Face: Anastasia Brow Wiz--$21 
    Here's the thing about Cara Delevingne/Brooke Shields/Lily Collins brows: everyone wants them, but not everyone looks good with arches quite as thick as theirs. It's all about moderation, after all, which is exactly where Anastasia comes in. Featuring a lightweight, subtle pencil on one end--so it looks natural--and a brush on the other, this multitasking pen is the secret to looking pulled together.

    The Inspiration: NYLON, May 2002
    Usually the weekend can go one of two ways: crazy dance party status, or cuddling up under the covers. Right now all I want to do it curl up and binge-watch Silicon Valley....and this oldschool NYLON spread makes me feel 100-percent fine about my decision not to go out. 

    The Song: "House" by Kindness
    Even though it's not new, this track by Kindness keeps me coming back for more. It's luscious and layered and irresistibly chill, just the thing we all need by the end of the week.
