The Link Up: The Clothes And Jewelry Em Wore On Good Morning America, The New Skincare Face Mask Caitlin Is Lathering On, And An Affordable Cabinet We Love

It’s our hope that these Sunday Link Up posts are a little reprieve in your weekend. However, with the 6, yes 6 mass shootings that happened in the US this past week, we need to be highly aware that while reprives are important for mental health, we can’t become desensitized. We know explicitly that the Buffalo shooting was a direct result of racism and white supremacy and the Orange county shooting was also a hate crime. One shooting in Texas was at a flea market and reportedly was due to a “fight between two groups of people.” While these issues go far deeper than our government and its laws, remember that midterms are coming up. Using our voices and votes is such an important and actionable way to get people elected that can actually make some tangible changes. It’s easy to feel helpless but it’s harder to lose someone you love. Everytown is a wonderful organization to support the end of gun violence if you are able.

Let’s shift to embrace joy, joy in the form of design by the one and only Justina Blakeney. We think the world collectively rejoiced when we all saw that she and her home were on THE COVER OF ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST. Normally, we refrain from using photos with people in them so we can focus on the design. BUT again, the joy and love emanating from Justina and her family is the perfect entry into what their home is all about. There are two many incredible moments in this home to point out so you’ll just have to see for yourself. GO HERE NOW.

From Emily: Pulling together outfits, where I felt comfortable, professional, and stylish, was much harder than anticipated when I was shopping for going on Good Morning America because WHAT IS HAPPENING IN FASHION? So I finally found this cute APC denim dress that was structured AF – thick, tailored, and going nowhere in a good way, which meant that it was going to be great for TV. But it was a bit utilitarian (which I loved) so for the GMA segment, I bought a victorian collared and sleeved lace shirt to layer underneath (here is a super similar one from the same store). Then I added a pearl necklace with a gold heart locket charm which felt right (and just cool). Those were more splurgy (from Clare V, but not fine jewelry or anything) so I went to Madewell to supplement because one must layer at all times – the thicker one linked here and the skinnier one that looks like ball bearings (can’t find on the site). I got that bauble ring on clearance which I do love (but don’t run it through your fine hair – it will harvest that hair from your scalp) and the chain buckle bracelet from Clare V too. The other one is from Madewell. I then added more stacking rings mostly because they wouldn’t fit on any other of my sausage fingers (runs in the family!).

From Jess: I just bought really cute high-waist wide-leg medium blue denim jeans! The other best part is that they are FRAME jeans but from Nordstrom Rack, so they were $89 (originally $248). They are technically cropped but since I’m 5’4″ they hit me at the ankles which I like. Also FYI they are a little more “high-rise” on me than how they look on the model. Oh, and if you are looking for chic comfort slides, I loved these and almost bought them because they were so comfortable.

Also From Jess: If you are looking for some great new music check out Maye. I love Moody but her songs are great. Enjoy!

Also Also From Jess: I’ll take a 10-piece chicken nugget meal, 3 BBQ sauces, and a chair. Thank you!

From Caitlin: OMG GUYS. I have found a skincare product that made my skin look SO GOOD that a MAN noticed the difference and dropped an unsolicited, “wow, your skin is glowing” after I had used it for the first time!!! It’s the Laniege Cica Sleeping Mask – I picked it up on a whim when I was grabbing yet another jar of their famous Water Sleeping Mask, which I use as a daily moisturizer because the gel texture is incredible – and Y’ALL, THIS STUFF IS MAGIC. My skin is naturally pretty dry (like, flaky in some parts) and kind of red, and this calmed the heck outta everything. It’s pretty thick (I may have over-applied because I looked like Mark Zuckerberg paddle boarding) but it absorbed so quickly and my skin felt unbelievable the next morning – all the places that normally feel a little scaly were totally smooth. I had no redness and some of my wrinkled areas (ya girl has DEEP laugh lines, even at 30) were a little less pronounced. I think this product may be a little TOO much if your skin leans oily (the Water Sleeping Mask may be great for you, though!) but OMG I AM SO EXCITED. It has a near-perfect rating on Sephora’s site and it deserves every freakin’ 5-star review it gets. A little miracle in a jar for all my fellow dry-skinned pals!

From Mallory: I bought this cabinet for my entryway and I LOVE it but it ended up feeling too deep for my space (I thought after taping it out it would fit juuuuusssttt right…sad). Linking it here so someone else can buy it and enjoy it in their home!! It’s so well designed and was pretty easy to set up 🙂

I didn’t see a link for the pink floral in the very first shot with the gold jewelry. Dying to know what it is!

Possibly the Marilla Floral Chiffon Blouse by Ulla Johnson with a matching skirt (or maybe this print came in a dress too, but I can’t find it). https://wornontv.net/193986/

Think this is the dress: the Alessandra floral midi dress in Claret Patchwork by Ulla Johnson: https://www.intermixonline.com/ulla-johnson/alessandra-ruffled-floral-midi-dress/FA200124-ONL.html?

I lurve the bauble ring!💞 I think I could avoid running it through my fine ringlets if I owned it!
Emily, you looked energetic, excited and gor-g-eous during your appearances! This Aussie googled the shows (they’re shown after-the-fact here and I didn’t want to miss you) so I could see….coz, I HAD to see! 🥰xx

Caitlin…the Mark Zuckerberg sunscreen!! Bahahaha🤣🤣

I’m a bit bummed by “reprive…two many…” Without prejudice, please, one hyphenated word = spell-check.

Ooh and I forgot to say how great that you included Justina’s AD cover in the link-up!
So. Good! 💞

Predictable – you are out to cause division in this country, only pointing out situations that fit your politics. No mention of the Waukesha murders where a leftist radical plowed over people, killing 6 including a young boy. Or the Brooklyn subway mass shooting where 10 people were shot by a leftist radical. Or in Chicago, where there are mass killings EVERY DAY – terrible situation for the mostly black casualties. Again, no mention or concern from the left. Don’t vote for Biden if you want murderers to be held accountable, regardless what color they are. Voting for Biden just will increase the deaths and destruction in our country.

Hyping the race aspect of these massacres only exacerbates the problem because it subsumes people into two identities – white or black. The problem isn’t race or guns no matter what Biden, Hochul or Letitia James say and others unquestioningly accept. There is a plague of hoplessness among young men who see no purpose to their lives resulting from broken families, absent fathers. isolation, idleness, poor self esteem and an absence of religious faith. One route is drugs and possible eventual overdoses. For a different kind of mental illness like the TOPS killer there is a substitute religion of race hatred which gives form and purpose to his life as a gullible, mentally ill person. The Rwanda of a generation ago had the same problem on a mass scale – the tribalism of the Hutus and the Tutsis. which led to hundreds of thousands of deaths. But the problem no longer exists since referring to someone’s tribe has been eliminated just as referring to someone’s race in these incidents should be eliminated or at least significantly down played. Our politicians have used these massacres selectively in order to gin up political support. We should see the tribalism for what it… Read more »

Respectfully, Bo, can you articulate why gun control, which is what the link that Emily shared supports is such a bad thing ? Or maybe to keep it on the positive side, what do you advocate that we support instead? Comprehensive health care, including for mental illness and drug addiction? More support for schools? Where would you have us put our bucks?

Why are you so one-sided?
Cancelling, hiding, deleting and arguing with feelings not facts will continue to create more and more division in your country – which other countries are starting to see it for what it really is!
The advocating of censorship of other viewpoints can be construed itself as violent and infantile.

Loved seeing Justina’s AD feature and tour!! I saw so many “in the rough” photos of the home when she bought it and a tour of the layout and her plans – and she truly made a gorgeous, authentic, expressive and artistic home for her and her family! Thank you for sharing!

Caitlin, you’re putting massive amounts of chemicals on your face. and then leaving them on all night. there are only a couple of ‘real’, effective ingredients in that product and they’re listed at the very end. plus glycerin is actually drying. maybe find a natural way to change the reason your skin is dry from within. going to a homeopath is a great place to start. as well as changing your diet. 8- )

I’m not really sure why this comment was down rated, it was an honest and friendly way of showing concern. Maybe because we don’t want to take away from that fact that Caitlin is beautiful, duh!, and it always feels good when someone else notices something about your rad self that is especially, noteworthy wonderful and they want to share that appreciation with you. But, if any readers are interested in looking into the ingredients that are in the beauty products we use, you can plug the names into the Environmental Working Group (EWG) Skin Deep search and you can see how much research has been done on the particular ingredient (if any at all) and a safety rating, which can be vital if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. https://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ I agree with Andrea that simple changes in diet and nutrition can make a huge improvement in every aspect of your skin’s health. Your skin is generally an outward expression of what is happening inside your body, particularly your gut. Our skin (our biggest organ!) speaks to us in it’s own language and it can be such an empowering form of communication with your body if you can tap into… Read more »

CLARIFICATION: Probiotics that are pills intended for internal consumption are different than the beauty products that contain probiotics-DO NOT EAT BEAUTY PRODUCTS. I just remember the uproar after the oven door comment and wouldn’t want any unassuming reader to be confused.

I think it was down voted because no one wants to hear unsolicited advice (especially about changing their diet) from an internet stranger when they were just sharing a product that they love.
