Monday Memo No. 44
Outdoor eats, sundresses (finally!), highly binge-able shows and yep—let’s talk maternity leggings.
Do you like eating? Do you like eating outside?? Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg is officially open for the 2019 season, happening Saturdays in Williamsburg and Sundays in Prospect Park. The vendors are always insanely delicious and honestly you had me at outdoor consumption of various treats. Pro tip: Don’t sleep on the vendors with shorter lines. Yes, there are 50 people waiting for that unicorn taco because it’s probably amazing, but so are the three vendors around it who haven’t gone viral—yet.
Remember when we had shoulders? Prepare yourselves and your closets for the day when sunshine can once again beam down on us without the need for a jacket. This Topshop dress is SOCUTE (one word) and comes in at under $100—just don’t skip the sunscreen, we’ve been indoors for a very long time.
Do you prefer more symmetrical garments? You are also in luck in the world of highly affordable frocks. This sunny number by re:named is the casual yellow polka dot moment you’ll be so happy is hanging in your closet when last-minute daytime plans pop up in warm weather. And with that price tag? No-brainer.
We’re all obsessed with Sandra Oh at this point, yes? Also I still miss Christina Yang but that’s for another time. Killing Eve Season 2 has recently begun, and if you even remotely enjoy drama, thrillers, and spy stuff, get it together, and get to your couch, STAT.
What do we hate? Drippy hair! How do we stop it? Lots of ways, really, but this is the best one. I recently started using the AQUIS Original Hair TOWEL to stop my hair from turning my home into a slip-n-slide, and I’m thrilled with it. These things really do reduce your blow dry time and you know I love a time saver when I see one. Look at those ratings, please!
You already know I am team silk pillowcase, but what you don’t know is that I am team silk pillowcase regardless of whether or not I am sleeping in my own home. Slip’s travel set lives permanently in my suitcase and includes a pillowcase and bonus silk eye mask because hotel room curtains cannot be trusted.
Also in the realm of drama + thriller + not based in the US television, Broadchurch is another highly binge-able series, and this one is on Netflix for anyone who doesn’t have access to Killing Eve. Olivia Coleman (who just won a Best Actress Oscar for The Favourite) is simply brilliant. This series had me ADDICTED.
WHELP, here we are. It’s time for maternity leggings my friends, oh, is it time. I am currently making myself as comfortable as humanly possible via Lululemon’s Align leggings in Super High Rise. A note to all the pregnants: Super High Rise is key. Also, just FYI, I am fully enjoying learning how to re-style myself to accommodate the cantaloupe-shaped situation currently happening around my middle. We’ll see how jazzed I am at watermelon stage...
