a scorcher

the first really hot day of the season. leon and i are headed up to fisherman's beach in swampscott this afternoon. i can't seem to find my favorite two-piece, so i'm stuck wearing a jcrew swimsuit from freshman year of college, which leon is modeling. i swear, he does this to himself!

making art

yesterday leon and i went to a few open studios in our neighborhood. i know kate gakenheimer from the playground but had yet to see her work. photographs are such a poor substitute for experiencing them in person. the last time i was in a room filled with stained glass was nearly a year and a half ago when i was at ste. chapelle in paris. i've never seen anything like kate's works, which are seem to be drawings on glass. i would love to stare at that owl while taking a break from work.

sailor top and hair inspiration

i've always been attracted to the idea of sailor tops, but i find them to be too saccharine in their finished state. this new apc sailor top doesn't have the full-blown sailor collar in the back, which may just do the trick for me. at la garconne, $150. also at penelope's for $138.

ever since i cut my hair off in january, i have been trying my best to resist 'fixing' it with another cut. the layers are getting out of control four months later, and i'm tempted to chop off the longest layer (about 1 1/2 inches) for a proper bob.

her cut is very similar to what mine was like back in january, which makes me want to get bangs again. at the same time, i love being able to pull it all back into a ponytail now. i don't know why, but i can never make up my mind about my hair.

i guess hair is my 'grass is always greener...'
are there people who are perfectly content with their hair style?
