1. This J. Crew Factory Striped Top is the best! It is light weight without being see through, a bit longer, and fitted without being too tight. I just ordered it in the poppy stripe too. Seriously, you need to get this top.
2. Mad Men: I am so depressed that the series is now over. Even though the series finale was primarily panned in the press, I loved it. I love that Peggy got together with Stan. I love/hate that Betty had terminal lung cancer (did she ever NOT have a cigarette?). I love that it is implied that Don came back to his senses and created that iconic Coke ad. Even though I have seen every episode at least 2 times (during the regular season and a marathon on Netflix), I DVR'd the series marathon last week and have been working my way through every episode for the 3rd time. I have realized that I did not like Megan and that I really loved Betty. Whey did Matthew Weiner stop using January Jones towards the end? She is a fabulous actress. The casting was perfect for every character on that show. And the fashions! The costume designer, Janie Bryant, put so much work in to every characters' outfit, sometimes even down to the color depending on the mood of the scene. And, she repeated pieces because that is what people did back then. I could go on and on, but I'll stop. Buzzfeed has ranked every single episode here. It's worth checking out if you loved the series as much as I did.
3. The status of this blog. I am torn. Really torn. When I started this blog, I really enjoyed everything that went into it. Over the last 6 months or so, I started to dread the picture taking, the editing, and the writing for the post. I think a lot of it has to do with me being hard on myself. I mean, who likes pictures of themselves? My photographers (my family) are also not into it anymore. I was to the point of bribing them and then they take half-ass pictures and I already don't like myself in pictures and I have to use at least one of those half-ass pictures. And then the horror of acquaintances possibly "finding out" about the blog, which is really silly, I know. I was thinking about this the other day and came up with a response if someone did find out, "I have a blog, bitches!" which I laughed at in my head way too hard. I am going to see how it goes over the next month or so. I have a few outfits to post that I really love and hopefully, the picture taking will go well this weekend. We will see.....
Thanks for reading and have a terrific weekend, especially those enjoying the Memorial Day weekend. Remember what this holiday commemorates.
