Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 9/27/13

2013 September 27

This week has felt strangely long and stagnant. I’ve been in a creative rut, not feeling inspired or motivated to do much of anything. While I’ve managed to be somewhat productive in my day to day routines, it wasn’t enough. I’m looking forward to this weekend to help recharge my batteries, so to speak. I have a few parties to attend, brunch with friends, and then apple picking on Sunday, which I’m super excited about. A day in the fall air, running through the grass, eating cider donuts, and of course picking apples, may be just what I need to move away from this stalled state.

What do you have planned for your weekend?

Best of the Looks:

I love the simplicity of this plaid shift dress, paired with loafers and a cross-body bag. 9 to 5 Chic

How to roll your cuffs like those oh-so-cool J. Crew models. The College Prepster

Best of the Books:

One of the greatest mysteries of being a writer–how to get an agent. Ploughshares

You’ve probably heard about Canadian novelist (and heel) David Gilmour’s remarks about teaching women’s writing to college students. If, like me, you were seething with anger, this response will make you laugh. The Toast

Which authors will we still be reading in 100 years? Book Riot

50 books to read to your child. Flavorwire
