Last week I heard something that marked me, not because it was a totally new thing to me, but because I had thought it myself without quite articulating it that way before. It went something like this: ‘If you look forward to Mondays, the world is yours.” How beautifully said! I’ve always been more enthusiastic about a new week than about the approaching weekend. I often have the feeling that the weekend slows me down. Maybe that’s a good thing, we all need a change of pace, but I so often have the impression that people are expecting too little of themselves by putting so much thought into finishing off a week.
It’s colder and windy today, maybe the first day of real autumn. I was in the mood for this kind of weather and these beautiful Ralph Lauren campaign photos fit perfectly into the scenery. So I’m celebrating autumn too this Monday.
And now I am happy to announce that the giveaway winner is … Alina. Congratulations! I hope you’ll enjoy The Sartorialist: Closer. Thank you everyone who participated. I loved reading your insightful comments and I wish I had a copy of the book for each one of you.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
PS: Today I’m guest blogging on Little Bits of Lovely sharing a little fashion books guide. You know how much I love a good fashion read, so do stop by if you’d like to read my recommendations.
