Madame Bovary

This is on my watch list for this weekend. If you've never read Flaubert's novel - put it immediately on your "To Read" list. Flaubert has a perfectionists prose and his writing is hauntingly beautiful. Madame Bovary is the ultimate anti-hero, a romantic who craves beauty, wealth and lust in her banal life and risks it all to feel alive even if just for a little while.  Its a desperation that is relevant even in today's world - actually probably even more so in today's world - where our lives are so entwined with riches and wanting material things that people will do just about anything to show that they have "made it". It's been years since I read the book - but I'm looking forward to revisiting the story via what looks like an amazing adaptation to film.

Pool Party Luxe

Zimmermann are always a favourite of mine for beautiful prints in swimwear. There's a certain luxe in a pretty print against a ocean backdrop. After perusing the Zimmermann website for the latest styles - I stumbled across this beautiful one-piece swimsuit. It immediately conjured up images of luxurious pool side lounging - with a cocktail in hand (and preferably no kids around!). So this outfit is an ode to a grown up pool party where fashion meets sun-lounging. Shop the look: Zimmermann: Anais Floral 1 Piece, Maurie & Eve: Josee Skirt, Samantha Wills: Primrose Gold Blush Glitter Sunglasses    ...
