Hope you had a good weekend.
Ours was quite low key, save for a bit of plane spotting with my son (new livery at Pearson got that world abuzz.) We watched the Kentucky Derby, but it’s never quite the same in the rain. I’m always so nervous the horses might fall.
Is the new Royal baby not the cutest?
Such a sweet photo. Kate does a nice job capturing the moment.
Of course, only Gary Janetti could take a photo like that and give it bite. You know it’s bad when you have Lisa Rinna telling you to play nice.
Over the weekend, I read Sorority, which is one of those buzzy, summer books. I thought it would be light-hearted – think the sorority in Legally Blonde – so it was darker that I expected. It reminds me of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, based on the terrific writing and East Coast university setting. It’s part Bildungsroman, part Queen Bees and Wannabes, and part DSM-5. The portrayal of a certain type of privileged woman is searingly accurate: “Those poor ladies. Years spent leaving no impact other than the lipstick on the rims of their wineglasses during luncheons…” Ouch.
It also left me with a craving for preppy dressing, which nobody does better than Vineyard Vines. Hitting their shop in Maine is one of the highlights of our east coasts trips.
This dress is adorable, no?
And this dress?
Both are winners for Mother’s Day brunch.
What did you do on the weekend? Are you enamoured with the new Royal baby? Any preppy dresses in your closet?
