First Monday in May kiddos – you know what that means: the summer countdown is seriously ON annnnd the MET gala is tonight. I can’t wait to see the looks that arrive at this year’s theme: “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”. I’m not sure that they could have chosen a more socially relevant theme – living in the age of technology that we do. When they announced the theme I was actually surprised that it hadn’t been done already, it’s just that obvious. I hope (as I’m sure we all do) that people go all out and that we see some super innovating looks. And since we all will be glued to our phones scrolling through the imagery that technology throws our way later – the joke is on us.
Now that I’m sure I won’t be the only one dreaming of gowns in full R2-D2 splendor today – moving on. This weekend FLEW by – as will this week and the coming month I’m sure. And then it’s summer – even as I write it I get this silly excited feeling. So I’m going to try and savor the next few months and really drink it all in: the extra hours of daylight, the extra SPF, the extra time *OUTSIDE*, and the extra time with some seriously good people.
Let’s do this Monday. Bring. It. On.
