What I love this week: no fooling! 😉

Well hello, April! This time last year we were experiencing snow in Paris.

It’s been a bit of a 3-ring circus around here, and I’m off my schedule a bit, but did want to share what’s new chez nous and more….

To wear

This modern textured chain necklace looks and feels expensive but is actually budget-friendly.

These linen wide-leg trousers are comfortable and (surprisingly) flattering. The Espresso color is a nice alternative to black, and is a little bit darker than it looks in the image above. (Good match for the dark brown in the Autumn & Spring palettes.) In four neutrals colors, sizes Petite P to 3X. They seem to run true-to-size.

I also love the look of this organic linen dress with a Mandarin collar, which you could wear as a dress, tunic, or open as a duster. Four colors, sizes XXS-3X.

And here’s one in a gorgeous Blueberry color for you Summers.

This linen maxi dress can go from day to dinner. It’s available in this bright blue (good for Winters) and a chocolate brown for Autumns and Springs. It’s selling fast, but many sizes are still available.

If there’s a straw tote on your spring wish list, here’s a good-looking style that “punches above its weight,” price-wise. It’s nicely structured, and includes a zippered pouch to corral small items. The double handles give you the option to carry in-hand or wear on the shoulder.

To drive…

Volkswagen ID.4 EV in silver.
All electric!

I’m now the proud owner of an EV! This is the Volkswagen ID.4, a small SUV style vehicle. It’s a delight to drive, and has a range of 250+ miles (when charged to 80%, as recommended for maximum battery life). I’m still learning all of the features, but am quite happy with it.

We’ve installed a 220V outlet to be able to charge at home, but I also get 3 years of free charging from Electrify America, which is great if we’re out and about.

To watch

Cast of Korean drama "Divorce Attorney Shin" on Netflix.

Yes, we’ve become hooked on another Korean drama, Divorce Attorney Shin on Netflix. It’s a little opaque at first, but the plot and motivations of the characters unfold over the season. Lighter on the “legal procedural” aspect than Extraordinary Attorney Woo, the story leans heavily on relationships between the characters.

Another season of Ted Lasso is back on Apple+, and we’ve also really liked “Shrinking.” It took me a couple of episodes to get into the series, but it does get better. And Harrison Ford steals every scene he’s in.
