Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 5/25/12

2012 May 25

 Though the gloomy weather hasn’t left the island of Manhattan yet, it’s still Friday, and that makes me happy. Even happier because it’s a 3-day weekend! We’re staying in town for this one, planning on seeing the new Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom) tonight, then tomorrow I get to pick out sunglasses and hopefully hang out in the park with Chief and some friends. Other weekend plans include reading, working on wedding planning, and watching Friday Night Lights. Ahh, bliss. 

Do you have any exciting plans for the holiday weekend?

Best of the Looks:

I love everything about this look from See Jane Wear–from the bouncy ponytail to the kicky pink sandals.

I would love to be wearing this yellow skirt from Anthropologie.

A fantastic Awl feature about Mad Men‘s Megan Draper and her affection for Vogue.

I’m always looking for good makeup tips. I love this post from Sincerely Jules.

Flavorwire has a feature on fashion inspired by Moonrise Kingdom.

 Best of the Books:




Some excellent photos of otherwise serious writers taking themselves not so seriously.

Literary Cocktails! 

Beautiful bookshelves! 

25 reasons to QUIT writing. 

Tips on writing flash fiction. 

Despite the haters, I’m really looking forward to seeing Gatsby on the big screen, as told by Baz Luhrmann.
