Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 6.20.14

2014 June 20

I feel like I say this (or at least feel it) every week lately, but this week was LONG and exhausting. In a serious way. I’m looking forward to what I hope will be a relaxing weekend–a comedy show with coworkers, potential beach outing, drinks on the porch, and Shakespeare on a roof deck. I could get used to this lovely weather Boston has been having–more of this, please, weather gods!

Best of the Looks:


Though I don’t think I’ll be wearing a jumpsuit anytime soon, I really like HollyDolly’s “lady tux,” which she wore to a formal event. Looks so chic, no?

Love this bold green Zara dress.

Cute summer hair trick.

This swimsuit is amazing–business in the front, party in the back!

Julianne Moore as famous works of art–breathtaking.

Best of the Books:

What makes a great editor?

I’m really interested in Emily Gould’s writing and career–here’s a good profile of her in Elle

My friend and writing hero, CJ Hauser, wrote a novel and it’s called the From-Aways and it is wonderful. Here’s a quick interview with her about the book.

This satire of Nicole Krauss and Jonathan Safran Foer’s breakup cracked me up. (Though I know divorce isn’t funny…but come on, they’re selling their house for 14.5 MILLION DOLLARS.)

Old news at this point, but Lupita Nyong’o is producing a film adaptation of Americanah, one of my favorite novels of the past year. It’s going to be wonderful.


Have a beautiful and restorative weekend, everyone!

    This roundup made my lunch break! Did not know about Krauss-Foer. I’m also very intrigued by Emily Gould’s career.

    I like that bathing suit too! I bet it would be quite flattering…
