Monday, July 27
Over the weekend we took a quick trip up to visit the Frida Kahlo exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden. I always love visiting the garden, even if I do pay for it in intense sinus pressure after the fact. The exhibit was interesting, and overcrowded at parts. I plan to talk about that a bit more tomorrow. It was quite hot this weekend so simple and light layers were key. I've been wearing this blurred / brush stroke dot top on repeat all season, with everything. It's really light and the material looks silky but it is machine washable and can go in the dryer. At this point in my life, that excites me more that it should. Things that don't need to be dry cleaned? Swoon.
Another thing I've been wearing on repeat is this necklace. I'm not sure if I've really discussed it here before, but as I was recently asked what it meant, I thought now might be a good time. It's a nautical flag, Juliet to be exact. I happened upon these pretty little charms in Newport one year and spent the following thinking about how I should have bought one. When I returned that next July, I ran through the list of meanings again and picked my favorite. And while I hope to never need to use it, Juliet means "I am on fire and carrying dangerous cargo, keep clear." Now I know what you're all wondering. The answer is yes, if Taylor Swift cast me in her video for Bad Blood, my name would be Juliet.
