I had a lovely weekend that included a birthday note from John Hodany, an artist whose work I really admire. He’s a mathematical mastermind who in his works, like a surgeon, mutates modules and moves cut-outs around with meticulous precision yet still creates something that feels organic, colorful, biological, fun. Here are two of my favorite paintings. Thanks life for being soft right now.

Is it just me, or does anyone else limit their wardrobe to a pile of clothes hanging on a chair next to your bed during these darkest weeks of the year? I don’t reach further these days, I just keep my most trusted essentials on rotation and wear the same things for weeks. It might sound sad, but it’s actually a state that I’m quite fond of. I guess it takes me closer to the idea of being a light person, not weighed down by material things (or dark thoughts for that matter). I, at least sometimes, want to be that person. I want to be like my friend Annika who wears black leggings and black 3XL t-shirts every day of the week and remains the most stylish person I have ever known.
Two staples in this pile of mine are these perfect jeans and this silk satin shirt with extra long sleeves, both from Filippa K. With them I spent my Sunday at home, with them I’ll spend my week in meetings. Check them out here.
