...and I'm planning to wear white pants after Labor Day. Just try and stop me.
I had a great Labor Day weekend. One of the high points was actually an epiphany I had about my white pants. They're new, they fit well and I hated the thought of putting them away until next May. I had the realization that I could just wear them whenever I wanted. The whole white pants -- and white shoes -- issue isn't a law, though I'd treated it as one for my entire life. Over the years I've shed wearing white gloves for dress -- though that is something I miss -- and not wearing black to a wedding. Now it's time to go wild and wear white whenever I please. Running wild! I've lost control.
I did some fun things during the weekend -- seeing the incomparable Audra McDonald as Billie Holiday on Broadway and a wonderful tour at the Metropolitan Museum. We had a great guide and I have a new appreciation for Van Gogh and Rodin.
Van Gogh's painting of almond trees was one of the stops on our tour.
I also did some more mundane things, too, and stopped at Barnes and Noble and the local hardware store. I try to shop locally whenever I can and was rewarded by this silverware chandelier at the hardware store. The first floor is more housewares than hardware, but the basement is a real hardware store, with staff that is so helpful.
This is the light fixture over the cash register.
I enjoyed this display at Barnes and Noble. Autumn, however, is not here in New York City. We had the hottest day of the year today and the rest of the week has the forecast of summer temperatures. The pumpkin lattes will have to wait awhile. It's still summer in New York.
As always, thanks for visiting. Keep cool and enjoy September.
