Karl Lagerfeld at the Met- because I judge the art, but the individual. This was just eye candy for anyone who likes this sort of fashion. Wonderfully curated.

  1. Vietnamese Tacos- XEO Cantina. I love a little fusion
  2. Cajun Benedict- Biscuits and Barbecue (Mineola NY) OK- flaky and buttery biscuit, andouille, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese. onion gravy equals the most delicious breakfast I’ve had in awhile. Seriously, if you ever find yourself on Long Island, you must try!!
  1. My bread baking is getting better
  2. Perfume party at Jo Malone- Bergdorf Goodman
  3. The Fisherman Sandals I ended up buying- here’s the story: I saw these at the store but they didn’t have my size and I didn’t feel like ordering. Two days later I passed another Steve Madden, and as I was still thinking about the shoes, I thought I would try- loved them and decided to buy. Turns out they were sold out online, and only one store in NYC had ONE pair. At that moment, I NEEDED to have these shoes. It’s amazing what the idea of a shoe being sold out does to one’s mindset. I liked them but it went from ‘want” to NEED in like five seconds. Need to break them in so I can wear to my daughter’s graduation…

These paintings make me happy

  1. I love so many of your photos here – the flowers – the tulips and the bluebells. (I’m assuming they’re bluebells). They made me think of my Aunt in Australia as they’re her favourite flowers. I loved your shoes/sandals and hope you’re enjoying breaking them in and not suffering too much. I loved your favourite paintings, I can see why they would make you feel happy.

    Hope you have a good week ahead LA

  2. I so appreciate the people who wore pink to the Lagerfeld memorial.

    The shoes look cute, and I would not be able to wear them. Shoes like that cut into my skin. It’s not fun. I hope they’re great for you!

    The portrait of the woman in blue: I love her little smirk

    1. That painting!! Love!! I actually bought the shoes a half size larger because with the ankle strap it secures them. I’m taking then for a test drive today because we are actually going someplace by car so I should be able to start to break them in

  3. I’m all in for the fashion in this post, LA! I love your shoes…and your perseverance! And yes, despite the clouds around Lagerfeld, I can’t dispute his design prowess. LOVE the pics from the exhibit. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  4. Your floral images are extraordinary this week. I’m still smiling. And this, “I liked them but it went from β€˜want” to NEED in like five seconds.” Isn’t that an interesting insight? Why is that? I think we’re prewired to desire things that are rare and hard to find. These darling sandals qualify. Hugs, C

    1. I think it’s the thought of not being able to have something that brings out a competitive instinct almost…it was weird noticing it in me

      1. I bought a kitchenaid bread bowl, which is probably similar to baking in a ditch over. I let the bread cook with cover on and then last ten minutes I take the top off…it’s supposed to be a combo of steam and then the crisping

  5. I loved all the pictures. As a fellow bread baker, just one suggestion…try using buttermilk instead of milk or water, and light brown sugar. God serves that with heavenly dinner.

    Is this the Southern Comfort food place/chef you mentioned? That (the comfort food) may be the only thing I truly miss about the South. Seems like some good chefs are moving into the otherwise comfort food deserts i.e. big cities.
