It’s OK To Feel Sad In The Summer — for everyone who feels like shit this time of year.
Francesca Lia Block and Nineties Nostalgia, The Paris Review.
Wowowow, I feel like this article was written just for me.

I eat very late but I still appreciated this!
And this very good thread about Floyd Martin, a beloved mailman who is retiring after 35 years.
Fleabag Season 2, which is excellent. And I’m seeing Booksmart tonight!
I recently bought a pair of Hurricane Drift Tevas in Endive ($40) and I…love them? (Also available from Zappos.) They look like a Teva fucked a Croc but IDGAF. (TBH, everyone in Brooklyn wears kind of ugly shoes, and these are extremely comfortable.) I often struggle to find the right neutral shoes to wear with my preferred palette (that also isn’t creepily close to my skin color), and this muted lemony yellow looks just right with my mint pants, blue J. Crew pants, white jeans and shorts, and other assorted pastels! While having Reynaud’s means I can’t wear open-toe sandals as much as I’d like to in the summer, these shoes are very good for short jaunts / very hot days.
Have a great Sunday! 🕶
