Simon and I will be spending a few days in London before our Istanbul honeymoon, and I’m hoping to stop by this Alex Katz show at the Serpentine Galleries. Titled “Quick Light,” the show includes landscapes, cityscapes, and portraiture spanning decades of Katz’s career. His portraits of his wife, Ada, are always among my favorites (this book, which I own and treasure, sums up her chicness). Seen any great exhibits lately…? I’d love to hear!
I recently fell down a rabbit hole looking back at photos of the Duchess of Cambridge (how fabulous does she look in the Dolce & Gabbana frock above?!) and thought it would be fun to share some of my all-time favorite looks with you. The stylish royal and mother of two always manages to look as chic in blue jeans as she does in diamonds. Do you have a favorite look…? What do you think of Catherine’s style evolution…? Scroll to the bottom for suggestions on channeling her look.
We have a large wall behind our dining table that desperately needs art and I’ve been considering a series of botanical prints. These lovely pieces by Three Day Creations in New Orleans are top contenders. Allison Daw, the shop owner, collects, presses, mounts, and labels the natural flora herself. I love that she carefully labels each plant as they do in a herbarium (“a library of preserved plants used primarily by researchers”). Explore Daw’s original botanicals and prints here.
