As we sat down to gather our favorite links of the week, we glanced at the calendar and realized it’s the last Friday in August! “Back to school” is no longer a distant idea, most schools are officially back in session. While we still have a week until Labor Day, we plan to savor this weekend like it’s the last Saturday of summer. Before we whip up a cocktail, here are our favorite finds this week:

— The adjustments made in this Spanish-style house were small, but had a huge impact.

— Stop, drop, and shop! The ban.do warehouse sale is happening now.

— Get a look at Rebecca Minkoff’s Long Island home. We adore the casual-cool vibe!

— Oh, how we love shopping for a cause. 

— Shout out to the team at Sweet & Spark for launching a gorgeous clothing collection! 

— Did you know many members of Team Rue are secret sports fans?? We were smitten with this video on LA Charger Forrest Lamp’s new partnership with Lamps Plus. 

— Finally, step inside the Berkeley home of Kat McEachern. (Yep, our Lifestyle Editor!) Her home is colorful and cozy… and the perfect spot to share a bottle of wine!
