Who: As in, who am I listening to.
So much in the last few months! But right now, especially, what I have dubbed my postpartum depression soundtrack (though I am 100% a-okay), Sufjan Stevens Carrie & Lowell. It's heartbreakingly good. Reminiscent of some Elliot Smith moodiness with all the classic elements of Sufjan Stevens you know and love.
What: As in, what went down this week/end.
Sorry, still no motivation for an outfit photo, though I promise to be back in action soon. I imagine if I even attempted one now it would involve frazzled mom, spit up, and toddler tears = a damn fine, hot mess.
Until then, this snippet of life will have to do. It's a shot of what I look at every day on my desk, an image of Daphne captured by the talented Katie Kaizer. Hanging from it? My Alexis Kletjian initial charms. I wear these daily. Yellow gold for Niko and rose gold for Daphne. But they also sum up what I have been doing these days....tending to the family, home, and hearth.
Posting outfits has been the last thing on my mind. But fashion sh*t is ever present and always on the brain, so they will return someday, better than ever, and I will keep collecting finds during 3 AM feedings for posts until then.
Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about.

Cos, the slightly more mature, simpler, sibling line to H&M, graced us with a shop on Newbury Street last week. Every basic your closet ever needed does live in one place, with great quality and price. I got a sneak peek and yes, you want to get over there.
Remodelista will be making their first New England Market debut at Lekker Home, November 14 & 15.

Primark opened in Boston's fresh and clean Downtown Crossing a few weeks ago with a bash that had people lining around the block for some fast fashion. No seriously, this is over 70,000 sq feet of fashion. On my short list of places to get to STAT.
