We’re gearing up for a trip to Palm Desert for mid-winter break, and I noticed something unusual while browsing around for swimsuits: normal looking women! Both J. Crew
are featuring realistic shapes among standard fit models. Refreshing AND helpful.
Floral prints are shaping up to back in style this spring
, and this dress
is a nice way to add them to your wardrobe even sooner.
Melancholy shouldn’t be confused with depression. Melancholy is an active state. When we’re melancholic, we feel uneasy with the way things are, the status quo, the conventions of our society. We yearn for a deeper, richer relationship with the world. And in that yearning, we’re forced to explore the potential within ourselves – a potential we might not have explored if we were simply content. Through our melancholy we come up with new ways of seeing the world and new ways of being in the world.
