Friday Favorites

This has been one of those weeks where it’s one thing after another after another. Thank god for the weekend and a reset. In an attempt to get back on track, I made it to ballet class for the first time in quite a while last night, and realized I absolutely need to work that once weekly into my routine. Now, if only ClassPass would get on board and add a few more dance studios…

I look the picture below of one of the many whimsical doors in Notting
Hill. The mosaic address number is perfection, and you can never go
wrong with a deep royal blue.

  • Helen Gurley Brown is one of my all time favorites. Sex and the Single Girl has an eternal spot on my nightstand. This piece is worth a quick read.
  • Speaking of what’s on my nightstand, I’m currently making my way through these three novels. I started on my trip earlier this month…seems like I’ll need a few more long flights to get through the rest. 
  • And on another profile of an iconic female note, Carmen Herrara, an almost 101 year old artist based in New York, is actual #goals. Her translation of color and shape through an assistant is reminiscent of the Matisse cut out process, and it’s incredible. I have an almost 94 year old great aunt who is still painting with impressive detail, so there must be something to be said for keeping the brain young through creativity. 
  • Well, one topic is just leading to another today. While I’m years off, if ever, from this stage in my life, this piece on the effect of motherhood on creativity is more than overwhelming…though I suppose it attempts to end on a distant and vaguely positive note.
  • I have mentioned this on Instagram, but I finally bought a milk frother to step up my morning coffee routine. I’m obsessed.
  • Cozy sweatshirts that pass as real clothes are one of my favorite clothing items. This shawl collar number from Anthropologie feels like being wrapped up in a blanket while also appearing totally purposeful and stylish.
