It’s here. Welcoming us with its open arms of spilt coffee, blistered heels, deodorant stains, frizzy hair, mascara in the eye, and all the other travesties that Monday mornings always seem to bring. All we can do is push through, slap a smile on our face, and come home and take a long, relaxing bubble bath.
Until you can make it home to slip into your pj’s, take a moment during your lunch break to mull over these “Monday Musings.” Worth your time, will add a wealth of knowledge to your Monday, and heck – may even make you smile.
1 – “The 10 Highest Paid Jobs in Fashion” from the Fashion Student Digest. As graduation looms over my head, I constantly find myself in a state of staring into space, head spinning, trying to iron out the next few months of my life and the career path I want to hone in on. Articles like this really help to put things into perspective. I’d like to be a Chief Marketing Officer, thanks.
2 – NYFW is in full swing. On day FIVE to be exact, and so far, Spring/Summer 2015 is looking flawless! If you are unsure of how to get in on the behind the tents, on the runway, inside scoop, here are “25 Instagram accounts to follow this NYFW” from the StyleList. Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller is number 1. Did you expect anyone else?
3 – Lillian & Dot’s list is fab, no doubt, but the list you NEED to read is from WhoWhatWear and it is “Your Ultimate Guide to Shopping the Best Fall Trends”. It’s the most precise fall-fashion roundup I have seen thus far. Cannot wait for it to get cooler so I can waltz out of the house with a.. er.. blanket draped over my shoulders.
4 – The “25 Must-Read Books For the Fall” from Flavorwire. I’m currently reading “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn, so I’m extremely behind on “trendy” reads. However, this list is on my radar. I can’t wait to get my hands on “Women in Clothes” edited by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton.
5 – The new “I WILL WHAT I WANT” campaign from Under Armour is genius. I initially saw the short commercial on Misty Copeland of the American Ballet Theatre a few weeks ago and was floored. Then it wasn’t just a few days ago that I saw this special on The Today Show. Not thinking it could get any better, I watched the film on Gisele Bündchen. I don’t know about you, but I just got a huge amount of motivation to go work my tush off.
Just survive today, people! Tuesday is around the corner!
