Sale PSA: this great jersey jumpsuit from Halogen, now just $41 (a super easy summer option that can be worn to both work and casually), the pretty white eyelet summer dress from Madewell that I shared earlier, now 35% off, a pretty cold shoulder trapeze dress in light gray from Halston Heritage, now just $113, and a simple but versatile rain coat from Petit Bateau, now $117.
1. Sharing the cutest little pair of gingham sandals (which actually seem like they have some level of decent padding for comfort), from Sam Edelman, for under $100.
I have exactly one pair of gingham shoes and they get me the most compliments out of any of my other shoes. This pair is actually quite versatile given its flat profile, and it reminds me a lot of something you’d find from say, Miu Miu, but at a price point where you won’t cry if a drink spills on it. Very cute!
2. This amazing, and wonderfully candid interview with Lucinda Chambers, the fashion director for twenty five years at British Vogue, who was recently fired. How bad do you think that Michael Kors t-shirt was? And interesting bit about her not having read Vogue herself in years…do any of you still read the magazine?
3. An interesting (if a little long) article via Racked, How To Sell a Billion Dollar Myth Like a French Girl. Are you susceptible to “Frenchie” things?
4. Who pays on a first date? Are you a traditionalist, or do you offer to split? Loved this funny article via the Wall Street Journal on this topic.
5. This week, I read The Thirst, by Jo Nesbo.
If you like crime series (especially of the Norwegian variety), chances are you’ve already read one or all of the Harry Hole series (if not – please start! And I’m jealous of all the great new reading you have to come!). The Thirst, like almost all of Jo Nesbo’s books I’ve read (and I’ve read them all), does not disappoint. Highly recommend The Thirst to anyone looking for a thriller/fast paced crime read, and especially if you’re already a “Holehead”.
