Happy Memorial Day, and can you believe it’s already Memorial Day? Let that sink in (if it hasn’t already) and enjoy these stunning aerial pictures of farmland by photographer Mitch Rouse while you’re at it. (Colossal)
Do many of you journal? I’m very curious about this, as it seems like a number of people I know are doing it in earnest now for the first time since adolescence. I’m very intrigued by the notion—I think it’s a good creative practice—and and like the idea of writing freehand, in a pretty notebook, like this one from Christian Lacroix. I also just like notebooks like this for jotting down anything I run the risk of forgetting, like phone numbers, names of TV shows I mean to watch, dreams, songs that randomly came on my Spotify, and so much more. I know that’s what the Notes function on your phone is for too, but it’s not the same.
This one from Need Supply comes in a few colorways, but I’m partial to this red and orange.
I haven’t been buying from or posting to Everlane lately because of this unfortunate business, which I really hope resolves itself soon, because I appreciate what they do well, and trying to find another brand that mines the same reasonably-priced-classic-style vein has been challenging. But I do think Alex Mill gets a whole lot right, and as a whole their clothes are chicer and more forward than Everlane’s, while still being deeply wearable. This jacket gives off serious Nili Lotan vibes, but at a fraction of the price.
This utility jumpsuit comes in a lot of good colors that are well worth checking out, but I like this crisp white.
An easy popover will cool dropped shoulders and military-ish pockets. It, too, comes in lots of colors: I’m also a fan of this blue.
Wearing a blazer doesn’t feel like the most intuitive thing in the world right now, but this one is so pleasingly slouchy that I could totally see throwing it on for the afternoon dog walk.
A sweet top with the just-right amount of flounciness.
And finally: these sunglasses are part of a collab between Alex Mill and Warby Parker, and I really dig the blue lenses.
