1. I always love browsing on Ann Taylor, and place orders at least a few times a year. It’s so frustrating though, because for some reason, most Ann Taylor items don’t work out for me – the fit is off, or I don’t like the fabric, etc. But I keep shopping because when I do find something I like – like my favorite knit slim pants – I really like them, and end up buying multiples and multiples.
I’m very happy to say that I have found my next Ann Taylor favorite item, and yes I just bought my first multiple (I picked up my first last year) – the oversized shirt. I love this shirt because it’s perfect not just with leggings, but also underneath jackets and cardigans. The length peeking out under a cropped jacket is super chic. I just ordered my second one!
2. After running around in my Nike trainers during CES, it’s been difficult for me to go back to my high heels for daily work wear. Yeah I look a lot shorter, but my feet are in heaven! Ahhh.
As part of my justification to temporarily pack away my heels, I came across this article from the Daily Mail about how stilettos may cause premature aging and arthritis in your knees later in life. This then started a frenzied Google search where I came across example after example of women warning their younger selves not to wear too many heels. Any opinions?
3. I was utterly fascinated by this NY Times article about the “jet set life” of Brad Kroenig, one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite male models….for now (cue ominous music). Seriously, if you have 10-30 minutes free, depending on your reading spree – read it!
4. Have any of you read The Girl On The Train, by Paula Hawkins? It’s being hailed as the next Gone Girl, and since I was recently trapped on a plane for 11 hours without a new set of movies from United, I decided to give it a try.
I’m happy to report that The Girl On The Train was very entertaining and kept me interested through the end of the book, though I will say that I liked Gone Girl better. Still a very nice mystery/thriller and good for anybody looking for some nice beach reading (and if you’re on the beach, lucky you!).
