Happy Friday, friends! Here’s a quick round-up of my favourite reads/things on the Internet this past week:
— Why I don’t believe in dressing for my body type: A great post on just wearing what you want and what makes you feel good. I feel like everyone has heard of INTO MIND, but if you haven’t, it’s a great blog on building a simple, minimalist wardrobe that works for you and isn’t overwhelming.
— The always amazing Fringe Association wrote a post this week about inspiring women who have great handmade wardrobes. There is plenty more there to read and explore, I’m following so many new inspiring blogs because of it. And it made me think a lot about my own wardrobe goals/decisions for the future: more on that later!
— Loved reading Leigh‘s post on working from your stash. This is something I often struggle with, as I want all the pretty things, and ignore that I already have pretty things at home that I can work and create with. It’s funny how you get so used to the things you own you stop seeing them.
— Bookrageous‘ latest podcast on strong female characters. They do a killer job of explaining exactly why pop culture places women on either the weak or strong side of the spectrum, and why that sucks.
— My favourite song this week: Way To Be Loved by TOPS. It’s been so sunny here, and this song is so spring-y.
As for non-online reading, I’m working my way through two books at the moment: Yasunari Kawabata’s Snow Country and Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places on audiobook — I am enjoying the latter more, as I knew I would. Flynn always writes the most complicated, interesting characters, and super enjoyable, edge-of-your-seat mysteries.
What are your plans for the weekend? Will you be reading or knitting something (or maybe both?) Tell me in the comments below!
