Ari Seth Cohen of Advanced Style, one of the blogs listed in my sidebar, took this fantastic photo.
As I have pointed out before I am no vision of sartorial splendor. Oh no. Not me. And, to be honest, I have very little interest in fashion featuring young kittens prancing about with pouty expressions. But I do enjoy going to Ari’s blog and catching up on all the advanced fashionistas he features on a regular basis. I appreciate the way he showcases quirky people who lead rich lives and dress accordingly. Bravo Ari!
My newest summer read. After slogging through the last book, which I removed from my sidebar as quickly as I could lest someone mistakenly think it was worthy of their attention, I happened upon Jan Morris’ book above. Now I’m imagining a month in a Welsh countryside cottage. A quiet fire. The smell of woodsmoke. A cup of tea by my side.
Have you heard of reading retreats? Laura Miller has written about them HERE in such a captivating way! My sister & I always find such pleasure in tramping about our foreign destinations with books in our bags. In Lisbon we found the loveliest outdoor living rooms in which to hunker down and read at our leisure.
Pure contentment to roam a new city with a book in tow. Slow travel at its very finest.
I found THIS article about Jan Morris and the enduring love she shares with her partner of 60 years. Seemed to go with the other themes in this post so I pass it along to you thinking you may enjoy it as well.
And finally, I received more comments yesterday from THIS post. Forget the post though! So many wonderful comments there from a fine troupe of older women. Even a poem! How I have enjoyed reading each one.
