HAPPY WEEKEND

this and that // August 31, 2012

Marilyn Monroe via George Barris 1962

As excited as I am about the approaching fall season, I’m always a little sad to see summer go. Even though I’m not in school and summer breaks are no longer what they used to be, there’s still that very specific carefree feeling about that comes with summer. This weekend I’ll be soaking up the last bits of the season with plenty of time spent by the pool, afternoon snacks of popsicles, and cocktails on the patio. Come Monday, though, I’ll be jumping right into fall with preparations to head to New York next week for Lucky FABB and fashion week.

On another note, don’t you love this picture of Marilyn? It feels so right for summer. I love her lip color – a perfect orangey hue. If you haven’t already, you should check out this mini-gallery of never-before-seen images of the star. The images come from Museo Salvatore Ferragmao’s new book that will be released in late September.
