Monday Memo // 2

Listening:

Sturgill Simpson's Nirvana cover "In Bloom." A lotta bit country, a little bit rock and roll. Catchy.

Reading:

I heard about it for years and it was always on the waitlist at my library---alas! I finally got my hands on Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch." So far I am believing the hype. It is REALLY GOOD.

Craving:

Cold, sweet treats. It is already a million degrees in Florida and I crave ice cream, smoothies, milkshakes, etc. ALL THE TIME. It does not help that the air conditioning in my car is broken. Hopefully I can steer myself in the direction of healthy smoothies and cold fruit, because the run to the boutique ice cream shop last night should not be a consistent habit. I am already salivating at the memory of one scoop banana cookie and one scoop chocolate walnut brownie.

Wearing:

Tropical-patterned bottoms and basic tops. Think: banana leaf print culottes + grey tee or black and floral shorts + black tee.

 Love these H&M culottes. Surprisingly versatile. (image via my beau)

Watching:

Slideshows of this year's Met Gala. I look forward to it every year. The gowns and stylings. I live for red carpet fashion slideshows. 

Wanting:

Also still on the hunt for perfect old Levi's, but also wanting to find some new color/styling scheme and decor for my bedroom.
