Playlist 07.21.19 : Five Songs for the Weekend

Traditionally, I have not been a Tycho fan. I’ve often found Scott Hansen’s music to be the sonic equivalent of a screensaver, a form of ambient Muzak fit for little else besides zoning out while completing a mindless task. “Easy,” the single he released last month, was that kind of song. I didn’t like it.

News 07.19.19 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

On March 5th, 2004, Martha Stewart was found guilty of obstructing justice and lying to investigators. At the time, she was one of comparatively few female CEOs, and she was irrevocably tied to her company’s success: her smiling, serene, WASPy perfection thoroughly entwined with her company’s numerous ventures.

Shopping: In Search of the Perfect Swimsuit

These past few weeks, I have been having the same routine in Paris: Lounging along La Seine towards Palais Royal, an Iced Coffee Latte from Kitsuné, sitting in the parc for hours and arriving home when the city is bathed in the golden hour.

News 07.17.19 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

In 2006, after years reporting in the Middle East, I moved to Paris. It was an accidental choice, the serendipity of a sublet through a friend of a friend. It was meant to be temporary; at the time I was just looking for somewhere to hole up and finish a book. My friends all said: “Oh Paris, how lovely! You must be eating well.”

She’s excited for the trip, but does not do well in the heat and does not wear dresses, and asked for advice on what to wear? The first piece of advice would be to keep to natural, breathable fabrics such as cottons and linens. Loose-fitting linen pants with white cotton or linen blouses (this scallop collar linen shirt is perfect) and singlets look chic while still keeping things cool. Here is some style inspiration that includes pleated trousers and ruffly blouses, city shorts and more…

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THIS WEEKEND WE watched the Wimbledon finals, and Sunday’s match, between Federer and Djokovic, was especially exhilarating and ultimately heartbreaking (Federer forever). The weather has finally turned summery and I’m all billowy white dresses and espadrilles these days. The roses in all the English gardens have begun to fade, but everything is lush and green as it always is at this time of year, the height of summertime, when the days are hazy and you can almost hear the clouds float by. We still have so much to tell about these past few months of change and renewal, but for now, it’s nice to step back a little from everything, safe in the cosiness of the cottage and breathe. Also began a new book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, which has provided much to think about…
