Kara sent me this bag from their new collection last week and I was so disappointed in myself that I didn’t bring it with me to Florida; if would have been the perfect thing to use while I was there for shopping, going to dinner, etc. (and it takes up NO room at all in a suitcase because it will basically lay flat) You may remember I had several Kara bags when they first launched several years ago, and really enjoyed them, but they never worked out for me long term. This one is a great clutch alternative IMO (I can NEVER manage to use a clutch) for evenings out, or to just throw things into and go. It’s not a very practical bag for me to use everyday since it doesn’t have a closure or shoulder straps, but I’ve been using it frequently to go to Pure Barre, and to dinner with Leo.
I’m taking back the two pairs of pants (boyfriend jeans + raw silk plaid pants) I bought from Eileen Fisher recently. The jeans are just too “meh” for me to keep and as I mentioned yesterday, I really don’t like how jeans with stretch in them wear over time. And the plaid raw silk pants are beautiful, and they fit me well in the size small, but as I tried to work them into my wardrobe, there is very little I already own that work well with them.
I read Devotion by Dani Shapiro pretty quickly last week, and really enjoyed it. I’m going to do a “books I’ve read” post next week with some more information/opinions on recent books I’ve read. Now, I’m reading random bits and pieces of books I have on my kindle. Nothing is really drawing me in too much.
I watched Forever on Amazon. It was good, and an interesting story line, but it could have been a whole lot funnier – I wanted it to be funnier. The most entertaining part of the show was Maya Rudolph’s wardrobe; she wore No6 Clogs constantly, and an Ace & Jig dress. She is so cute, and also was recently featured in the article I posted about Rachel Comey.
Next Friday I’m flying to Atlanta and then driving with my mom to Kentucky for my aunt’s 80’th birthday party. It’s a family reunion of sorts and I’m excited to see family that I don’t get to see very often.
What’s going on with you? Catch me up!! 🙂
Some photos from my weekend in Florida:

My step-mom volunteers at Leu Gardens and I love to go walk around and look at plants; it’s one of my very favorite things to do, and it’s always so lush and green in Florida. I also get a nice inside-view of the plants and flowers in the garden from my step-mom. I don’t remember what all of these were, the last one is shampoo ginger I think? There were so many gingers blooming while we were there.
We also went to the Polasek sculpture museum (where my step-mom also volunteers) which is beautiful and 100% worth visiting if you’re in the Orlando area (there’s WAAAAAY more to Orlando than Disney World!). The current exhibit surprised me by how fascinating and beautiful it was.
