I had to check my calendar and phone to make sure it’s actually time to write On My Radar. The highlight of my week was meeting Reese, and maybe I just rode the high of that all week, but I can’t even really remember what I did all week.
I realized that I didn’t share this photo when I did my little recap post earlier this week. I got to meet Sydney from 5 Hens and a Cockatiel. This spring, Sydney sent me the sweetest email I think I’ve ever received. She had created an entire series of an American Girl doll dressed as me. I can’t even tell you how unreal the photos are; she nailed every single detail of the outfits. (Here’s an example!)
She was in NYC last week and we got together for a coffee one rainy afternoon. I’m so impressed with her and her passion for photography, which she turned into a full-time job. She also brought “Mini Carly” and had me sign her foot, a tradition a la Toy Story.
Okay, here’s what is on my radar this week:
ONE // Behind the Cover
Maya Rudolph was on the cover of New York Times Magazine and they released a quick video of how they did the cover. It blew my mind. It’s a photograph shot by Alex Prager of a painting of Maya by her Alex’s sister Vanessa Prager… but with the real Maya mixed in. You have to watch because it’s seriously creative and beautiful!
TWO // Fringed Mules
Check out these adorable mules from Talbots. Priced just right, the style couldn’t be more “in” this fall, while still having a timeless charm about them.
THREE // Senior Class IDs
Okay, is this not the best school tradition? The entire senior class, including faculty, dresses up as different characters for their school IDs. The costumes are so good and it seems like a really great memory for everyone involved. (Can’t you just imagine trying to describe the character you chose to your kids 20 years later?)
FOUR // Bow Heels
Apparently, I’m having a shoe moment. How beautiful are these bow ribbon heels? I think they feel very “Gucci” without the hefty price tag.
FIVE // Mary Poppins Trailer
Okay, I was excited about the new Mary Poppins movie, but now I REALLY can’t wait to see it. The trailer was just released (not just the quick teaser) and it seems like they did a great job continuing the series. It’s not a remake of Mary Poppins, but a sequel based on the second book. And Lin Manuel Miranda is in it!!!
