the season of reading




Lately I've been so inspired by these images from the Japanese clothing label Syrup.  Reading in open fields, cozying up with books and tea in bed, simple cotton dresses and beautiful, beautiful sweaters. All so dreamy, yes? They make me excited to dress for autumn and line up all the books and magazines that I want to read in the weeks ahead.

Here's my current bedside table inhabitants:
I Will Never Forget You, photographs and unpublished letters between Frida Kahlo and photographer Nickolas Muray - very fascinating (and sad) love story!
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
The Fact of the Doorframe by Adrienne Rich
19 Varieties of a Gazelle by Naomi Shihab Nye
Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi

What are you reading these days?
