August is the Best Month

August is my favorite month for many reasons. Here are a few things I’m up to right now:

What I’m Reading

Sadie Dishes: August is the Best Month

I only seem to find time to read during the summer when I’m sitting by the pool or the ocean. So far I’ve finished an interesting biography of Jackie O; read the latest memoir from one of my faves- Jen Lancaster; and now I’m working on an interesting book about hosting meetings and events. The Art of Gathering goes through the various steps of planning a get together and preaches grounding every decision (invite list, venue, activities, etc.) to align with the true purpose of the gathering. So often we rely on convenience, defer to precedent, or focus on logistics when planning meetings and events when it should be about encouraging interaction and human connection to get the intended result. My favorite part so far is “don’t be a chill host.”

What I’m Watching

TV has been pretty good this summer. My TV life is basically Bravo, plus a couple other shows. I just finished the latest season of Younger. I enjoyed the latest season of Southern Charm a lot, and now I’m all in on Southern Charm Savannah. I’m keeping up with the some Housewives. The only Bravo show that didn’t do it for me this summer was Below Deck Med. I didn’t really like the cast at all. And I wasn’t going to watch it, but I just got sucked into Very Cavallari. I only really watch stupid TV. Sue me.

What I’m Wearing

I’m wearing anything that keeps me cool in this heat and humidity. At work that means lightweight, washable dresses. At the gym it’s breezy Adidas tanks, and on the trail, it’s my latest running sneaks. On the weekend, I’m loving the last couple things I’ve gotten from Lou & Grey. The fabric is like butta. I’ve totally lost interest in all the huge sales going on right now. I’m waiting for the new fall stuff!

How is August treating you so far?

2017 Golden Globes: Best and Worst Dressed

I’m back from hibernation, because it’s the beginning of awards season! Starting with the Golden Globes tonight, as always there were some great outfits, and some that left me scratching my head. There was a real range of trends this year because there were a lot of romantic, flowy, flowery gowns, but then also really simple, well structured dresses as well. There were even several pants suits on the women this year! Lots of really pretty outfits and people out there!

As usual, all the pics are from People.com.

74th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

As always, Reese Witherspoon is doing it, and doing it, and doing it well. This dress is so simple, but so flawless. Yellow was big on the carpet, and she chose a great shade with a great bodice. It’s fashionable, flattering, and on point!

Pink seemed to be a big trend on the red carpet this week, and I love the cool detail on the bodice of Carrie Underwood‘s dress. It’s great because it’s both fashion forward and really flattering for her. And PS- she has abs for days!

This is everything! I love that Lily Collins went all the way with this. It’s all the good stuff in one dress and she makes it work. I always think it’s fun when someone goes with a ballgown, but they don’t usually have this much fabulous details. It’s just awesome.

YASSSS! Felicity Huffman is giving me so much Jane Fonda with this look and I love it! Sparkle, jumpsuit, what else do you need?

NBC's "74th Annual Golden Globe Awards" - Red Carpet Arrivals

I’m not always in love with Mandy Moore because she maintains kind of a retro, romantic vibe on the red carpet. This dress, however, is a great nod to some retro trends, but done in a really chic, flattering way. It’s quite simple but quite perfect.

Worst

74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 08 Jan 2017

This is a weird one from Jessica Biel. There’s a lot a random going here, and I’m sure it’s supposed to be high fashion, but it’s just not that cute.

This dress on SJP seems both over whelming and under whelming to me. I expect better from you SJP. Her eyes always look a little alien when she goes with heavy liner. The hair also isn’t helping anything.

74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 08 Jan 2017

This dress seems like it’s supposed to be drapey and glam, but it just seems like such a mess to me. It also seems like Anna Chlumsky did not put a lot of thought in the entire look. It’s just kind of, meh for me.

74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 08 Jan 2017

First, let the record show, I think she looks very good. Second, I think Bri Larson could have easily worn this to her high school prom and fit right in. It fits like a dream but it’s just not that fabulous.

Keri Russell, let’s be honest, do you have a permit to wear animal print. She looks like she’s in a little over her head in this dress. This is a lot. Dial it back sweetie, stay in your lane.

 

Who were your faves?

Grease is the Word

This is a PSA to remind you that there’s a live production of Grease on Fox at 7pm EST tonight! I’m excited to see it!

Sadie Dishes- Grease

I think this has the potential to be a good one! If you ask me, as opposed to some of the other TV musical productions, I think Grease was made for this venue. We’ll find out tonight!
