It’s rubbish weather here in Atlanta today – dark and dreary, such a shame after a fabulous weekend, but easier to bear now I’m back in the office. We had a fabulous time at Virginia Highlands Summerfest – the weather was perfect for mooching and watching some great live music. I was in awe at a group of 14-16 year olds rocking out on stage – called ‘My Homework Ate My Dog‘ – they were brilliant – and it got me thinking about how to introduce music lessons to my two. I think music is so important and there is evidence that reading music can also help with numeracy. I was reading basic music at elementary school and playing the recorder, and then I graduated to the flute which was challenging once orthodontics started! I really think understanding rhythm and reading music can boost your appreciation of music and we always have some sort of music playing in the house – anything from Led Zeppelin to Robyn to Mahler. So maybe I should start them with piano lessons?
Brightening up the day today and sticking with the patriotic theme I’m wearing my Boden long sleeved Breton, Boden Effortless cardigan in radish, white Express Zelda crops and Tory Burch Eddie flats in Tory Navy.
Oh and one final very important note the Boden Autumn preview is out for women!!! In my opinion this is THE BEST season of clothes I have seen from them. Very ‘on trend’ with a retro, younger vibe – I’ve already placed two orders!!! My most favorite items are the Scoop Neck Tunic, Loulou dress, Cable knit dress (I’ve only ever previously bought 1 Boden dress!) and Skye jumper. Enjoy browsing and until June 25th there is a 20% discount.
