These Things No.50

i’ve been slipping a bit on the post front this week – sorry. have been quite busy, and felt kind of chained to my desk to be honest. which always makes me worry about my health… all that sitting cannot be good for you. when i’m done with work i just want to dramatically push my chair away from my desk and not even look at the screen anymore (in a metaphorical way of course, my office chair doesn’t have wheels so i can’t do a real push and twirl).

i’m also suffering from severe cabin fever, as i’ve been working from home for the past 2 weeks due to renovations at our office. and let me tell you – working at home SUCKS. for me, anyway. it has been quite essential for me to get out of the house every once in a while, especially for walks on the promenade. in an ideal world i’d have my own little studio somewhere… one day, one day.

anyway! it’s time for a friday these things. oh hey, 50 seems like a big number! but i guess everything on this here blog is sort of a these things, so let’s not get too excited.

Things That Go Together

i have been seduced by some beautiful imagery online in the past week, and especially things that go together. 1. this lady’s impeccable style in the moment – there’s nothing quite like a camel coat. 2. Loeffler Randall’s amazing new pre-fall booties. i haven’t wanted new shoes this badly in a while. 3. the leather skirt and infectious smile of Monica Paolini. 4. these watches by VOID – in every colour, please (but especially the brown). 5.  the industrial collection at Bodie & Fou. 6. clipping details over at the Rijksmuseum. 7. Gorgeous kitty by Aurore de La Morinerie8. Another lovely cat, by Mathilde. 9. the fashion stylings of Nanushka. 10. ink on paper by Malin Gabriella Nordin. 11. the Paris apartment of Clarisse and Lucile Demory.
