A man who will buy you beautiful flowers for no reason except that he loves you is someone worth your time, attention, and affection. Needless to say, I’m grateful for mine.
You always look so cool.
--Daisy Buchanan, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby
I like that J.Crew calls this color (shown as part of their Spring Color Shop) sea-glass green instead of sea foam green. Sea-glass is translucent, frosted, and soft like this color. Sea glass jumps out at you from the neutrals tones of the sand. Sea foam is actually a kind of gross grayish yellow…not a color you’d wear and certainly not the color of these lovely pieces.
Reading for pleasure and spending my Spring Break in Punta Cana might not turn out to be complementary plans. However, I’m going to be doing my best starting tomorrow, 11 am when I board a plane to warmer weather. The aspirational reading list:
- The Widow Cliquot: The Story of a Champagne Empire and the Woman Who Ruled It, a thoughtful birthday gift from someone who knows my somewhat snooty tastes in bubbly
- Open Heart, Open Mind: Awakening the Power of Essence Love, okay so this is actually school related reading for a Buddhist elective I take…but it’s some really feel-good stuff, totally something I’d read for pleasure anyways.
- The Mysterious Benedict Society, actually a children’s book. Hate if you want, but we bought it for my little cousin a few years ago and it’s been sitting in our house waiting to be read. Really, I’m just giving the book its due attention.
