Monday Memos // 8

Listening:

"White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane. 

A recent episode of the Sopranos I watched included this song. Tony had some memories associated with it, so it really earwormed into my head. I still remember years ago when a fellow MICA colleague created a music video for this song and I watched it repeatedly in my dorm room. (I tried to find the video but it seems to be non-existent.)

Craving:

Gimme the fruit! Gimme the fruit! (To be said in the style of Biggie's "Gimme the Loot.")

I ate a pint of blueberries today and threw some raspberries on my dinner. I had a bowl of watermelon and pineapple yesterday and an apple and peach the day before that. I cannot even tell you how many times I have had plantains in the last week (chips, tostones, sweet fried, in my shopping basket...). It's fruit season. 

I want this "That's Bananas" swimsuit, too. (via batoko.com)

Wearing:

I received these beautiful clogs for Christmas after years (and years) of lusting after any and all Swedish Hasbeens (DQ you are a dream provider!). I always thought they would be so chic (Le Freak, c'est Chic!) and add a perfect '70s vibe to an outfit. I have a disco soul. 

I also hoped they would be comfortable enough for me to wear all the time. Turns out they are just as perfect and dreamy as I always envisioned. I love you Louise! (name of the style)

Watching:

I go in waves with this one, but sometimes I need some cheesy delights like "Jane the Virgin." It is particularly good when you have at least ten episodes to catch up on. So, my lost interest mid-season has been a great treat, as I have been watching many episodes whilst cleaning, crunching and crafting birthday cards, etc.

Wanting:

In a week, I will be spending several days at the beach, wandering an island and feeling cool, non-ac-generated air. I cannot wait. I think a nice sun hat would help with the vacation spirit. Perhaps something floppy and straw. Or maybe some hi-low, sassy baseball cap. 

I've never been much of a hat gal, but I am willing to try with a few of the contenders below. 

This light embroidered peach hat is really good. (via rosehoundapparel.com)

This hat is exactly the kind my grandparents would wear on said island. (via northwoodgeneral.ca)

A simple boater hat seems like it could work, too. (via nordstrom)
