What. a. weekend.
Great food. Even better company. Mood-setting music. Pretty lights.
All on separate days, mixed and matched.
It was a dizzingly busy yet amazingly satisfying weekend.
I experienced something old, something new, necessary closure and newfound inspiration.
It’s times like these that I wish the weekend could extend into the rest of the week. I haven’t been able to sleep because the past few days have been so great- reality seems just as good as any dream. My sleeplessness was so bad I decided to watch the sun rise today.
The chill in the air this morning was sobering yet I still found myself half in reverie, half in reality.
half in the weekend, half in the Monday.
It seems that everyone else seems to be in a similar romantic mood. Romantic in that we want freedom from rules and liberation from schedules to become better acquainted with the past and devote ourselves to beauty and frivolity. The world compensates for “miserable moments” with beauty and style, however ephemeral, the same way we long for a great short weekend during a seemingly never-ending week.
I’ve noticed Fashion is also reflecting this mood: Ads, editorials, photographs consequently clothing this season are half rooted in fantasy, the other half in reality.

So dress like you’re half in the weekend and half in the Monday- Embrace Tomorrowland.
