I’ve been running the roads this week. Out and about, enjoying my summer. And documenting what I’m wearing as I do so.
According to Ernest Hemingway, “in order to write about life, first you must live it.” So writing about life means making time to just live.
What’s your magic wardrobe number? How many clothes do you really need to make dressing fun, instead of a chore? It’s less than you think.
Let’s talk about the books of summer, shall we? What I’m reading this summer, what I want to read, what you’re reading. You know, book chat.
On the one year anniversary of my first post-lockdown haircut, I’m examining the state of grey, and my journey to white hair acceptance.
I have never enjoyed lying in the sun tanning. I only burned. Plus these days tanning is risky. But, I still like the look of a bit of tan.
I’m getting patio ready. Planning outfits for the onslaught of lunch and dinner and coffee dates I hope are coming my way this summer.
Hubby and I went camping recently. It was not our best trip. But it was an eye-opening trip, one that triggered changing perspectives for us.
I’m trying to decide if I can give my city shorts one more season. Or if I should consign them to the donate pile. And I’m waffling.
Travel disaster stories make the best travel writing. And Martha Gellhorn writes the best stories about the vicissitudes of travel.
Camping can be balm for the soul. Sometimes. And then there are the other times.
Ever eaten at the automat? A panoply of food stretches off into the distance and you try not to choose everything. Kind of like with reading.
I’m participating in a trend today, my friends. Channeling Katherine Hepburn and trying to find a way to look good in a pair of baggy pants.
I’m hoping that if all goes well in the next few weeks, we will see the beginning of the end of pandemic life as we have come to know it.
In my May vlog, I’m styling a “maybe” jacket. An old jacket which I still love but don’t wear because I can’t figure out how to style it.
