1. For some reason, even though it’s been quite hot this week, I’ve found myself staring at these two photos of Ashley Olsen and Kate Moss, over and over again. I found them on my computer a few weeks apart, and somehow my brain decided to match them together and thus torture with this joint collage. I almost never reach for the color pink when picking out items for my closet – yet now I think it looks so fresh and lovely!
What do you think? I have two red/pink items of spring outerwear on my list now – both Burberry of course. One is a traditional trench in red/pink in a lighter spring fabric, while the other is a sweet bracelet sleeved jacket.
2. A lovely reader (hello T!), knowing my penchant for boring black/gray/white clothes, sent me this very interesting article via The Guardian about the end of minimalism and rise of “maximalism”. What do we think? I still love my neutral colors, but I have noticed that I’m more willing to explore outside my comfort zone lately (like with that pink coat above!).
3. I found this article via CNN, about the world’s most expensive restaurants, quite interesting. I’ve only eaten dinner at one of these (Le Meurice), and I probably wouldn’t be back unless it was a) breakfast, or b) on an expense account. Have you ever eaten at any of these destinations, and would you?
4. This week’s reading recommendation is a magazine subscription that I just renewed myself – The Economist. You know, every year I always waffle on renewing The Economist and usually a few weeks will go by with no new issues before I pull myself together and pay for another year. I guess there’s this small, very bad side of my brain that keeps chirping that an US Magazine subscription would be a fraction of the cost and I’d probably be able to relax in bed a lot easier over photos of various Kardashian fashion failures. But when my Economist comes again, I always find myself enjoying it. It’s like that documentary you didn’t want to click over to from old Seinfeld reruns, but that now you can’t stop watching. I always learn something new from the magazine, and reading just one issue makes me feel like I’ve done my due diligence of the world for the week.
Wishing you all a great weekend!
