Happy 4th of July weekend, friends! Hope you have a fun and safe one. Don’t set anything on fire accidentally. See you on Tuesday!

Heads up! The paperback of The Heir Affair comes out a week from Tuesday! (And, of course, if you haven’t read The Royal We yet, you can get it anywhere now.) We are super excited to be chatting with the amazing Casey McQuiston about it on Thursday, July 15th live on the Ripped Bodice Facebook page — you can RSVP for that here! (They should have autographed copies of the paperback, too!)

We rounded up CAFTANS!

You should also know that J.Crew is currently having a massive 70% off sale. Time for me to buy some whimsical trousers!!! (As a reminder, we use affiliate links here, like that one and above.)
