Modern Classics

As much as I love my dresses (all 48 of them), sometimes there’s nothing better than a great pair of pants, a top and some killer heels. That’s what I opted for yesterday when the heat seemed unbearable and my hangover even worse. I had some friends over for dinner, drinks and Eurovision and wanted to dress up a bit. Being a true supporter of the Danish song (i.e. the WINNER!), I obviously had to wear red and white. The top is from Mondo Kaos, the leggings are my red Funky Fever Highwaist leggings from Pieces and the shoes are Lola Ramona. It’s been a long time since I wore an outfit that made me feel this good about myself! I really am a sucker for bright colors.

I’ve got a couple of days off now because of the Whitsun holiday and on Wednesday I’m going to Paris (YES! PARIS!) which means I will have so much more time to read. I’ve been a bit off lately when it comes to books. Sometimes you know what to wear but not what to read. I haven’t read anything really good in a while. They’ve all just been so-so – not bad, but not really good either. There’ll probably be a lot of 3-star book reviews in the weeks to come – consider yourself warned! Today I sat staring at my to-read shelves and just didn’t know what to choose. The classics can sometimes be too much on a holiday and the “new” books have let me down a lot lately. Suddenly I had this urge for modern classics. Isherwood, Capote, Yates … I wish I could read them all at once, the urge is that strong! I need something brilliant, yet edgy … I need admirable writing that touches my heart, stories that entertain me and strong characters who’ll rock my world. I hope these lads won’t let my hungering reading-heart down!
