Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 5/11/12

2012 May 11

I’ve been a little MIA this week on the blog…and in spirit. But the sun is out and I’m feeling better about things. My birthday turned out to be a lovely day, complete with a gorgeous flower arrangement delivered to my office from Joe, plenty of birthday messages from friends and family, thoughtful gifts, and the fried chicken dinner at Momofuku.¬†Documentary evidence of how crazy the amount of food they give you below:

I’ve been feeling a little uninspired by style blogs lately–it seems that everyone is going the same thing, over and over. Does anyone else get that feeling? So, I’m a little low on links today. Regardless, I hope you all have a great weekend (we’ve got visitors from Boston coming, so should be a fun weekend!)–get out there and enjoy some sunshine!

PS–Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! We’ll celebrate properly next weekend. :)

Best of the Looks:

I like the way the colors are working together in Chiara’s look–The Blonde Salad.

A simple and inexpensive midi skirt at Old Navy.

The trendiest in glasses looks.

Textbook takes another look at Holden Caulfield.

Love the literary look series at Books Matter.

Best of the Books:

Cooking by the book–I really want to try one of these dinners!

Fun look at how books are made.

An iPhone case that looks like a bookcase!

Books the staff of the NYT lies about reading. (You know you all do it too!)



Happy weekend, all.
