For the next installment of want/need/wear/read I enlisted my Boston bestie Joy Stark - She's the first person I turn to for reading recommendations (she totally gets my half fluff/half substance vibe) so I can't wait to dive into her reading recommendation...and because I couldn't resist a list of my own it's a two-fer one day!
Want - I have plenty of bikes designed to go fast, but summer calls for a bike made for leisurely riding. The balloon tires on this bike will deliver a smooth ride on even the bumpiest of Boston's streets.
Need - iPad2- Apple's iCloud announcement sealed the deal for me.
Wear - Gorgeous flat sandals so that I don't tower over my boyfriend as we dance the night away at summer weddings.
Read - I can't wait to dip into this new novel, which is getting great reviews, during my own Maine vacation.
Want - I've long been saving my pennies for a Serena Mitnik-Miller watercolor of my own so I flipped when I saw this Earth print at a price I can afford until then...(and how lovely is she photographed by Leslie Williamson?)...plus part of the proceeds go to Charity:water
Need - while Joy towers above me at a long and lean 6 ft my shrimpy 5 ft frame leaves me a bit height challenged at times...last week my favorite kitchen stool broke and I've been borrowing Lila's chair to reach my top shelves...I love this woven stool spotted at Montmarte...any thoughts on where to score one?
Wear - my favorite Converse bit the dust a while back...and while I've had flirted with pairs of Bensimons and Toms my heart truly belongs to some beat up classics...time to invest in a new pair...photo via Trina
Read - Joy sent me The Paris Wife last week and I've already read it cover to cover...a fictionalized account of Hemingway's first wife's time in Paris it has me itching to reread Hem and Fitzgerald all over again...(although after reading Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin I think the women of the 20's were far more fascinating)
Hope everyone is having a lovely week! I'm still trying to find my footing as a mom of two...but finding some fun in it all (although I find myself chanting this book's title in my head like a mantra every night...)
