1. Every season I end up buying a few pairs of flat/low heeled sandals – one cheaper that I know I can thrash around and wear without fear, and another a little more dressy, a little more expensive.
The past few years I’ve found my “nicer” option from Stuart Weitzman, and this year is no exception. I think this is my favorite sandal design I’ve seen from Weitzman for awhile!
The sandal comes in both cork and a metallic bronze, which you can see above. From past experience, I can share that the cork versions are usually a bit more comfortable…of course, they are cork! But I just love the bronze version of this sandal. Definitely on my summer list.
2. I wrote a few years ago about how I fell in love with an Eileen Fisher skirt, and from that point on I’ve found myself stopping to admire items from the brand and touching the fabric in stores. I haven’t bought anything since, but loved this article from NY Mag about the author’s unabashed love for the brand.
3. I always like reading pieces by Pamela Druckerman (including a book I recommended in the past, Bringing Up Bebe), and this piece in the New York Times, What You Learn In Your 40s, is no exception. A great read with some nice tidbits!
4. My reading for the week (which I haven’t finished yet as I find myself going to sleep earlier and earlier) – Michael Meyer’s In Manchuria.
This was recommended to me by the friendly algorithms of Amazon, and I’m so glad that I randomly decided to click and explore. So far I’ve been really enjoying author Michael Meyer’s stories of the transformation of a small rural village in Manchuria…and can’t wait to continue reading on. I bought the Kindle Edition of In Manchuria on sale for $9.99, but you can also find the hardcover here. Enjoy!
