This and That

A Pretty Penny Summer Style Striped Dress Target Hat Hautelook Bag
{ Dress: Bar III (Macy’s, last year) CUTE ALTERNATIVE; Hat: Target; Bag: Hautelook }

If you’re looking for a super easy dessert to bring to a 4th of July BBQ this weekend, this ‘No Bake Banana Cream Cheesecake‘ served up in mason jars looks freakin’ delicious (and will probably make your family and friends think you’re some kind of Pinterest goddess).

While we’re on the subject of party food: PIZZA DIP.

I’m in a deep leather flip flop rut — I just love them so much! — and need to add some comfy sandals and/or flats to my summer rotation. Who What Wear shares ‘How to Score This Summer’s It-Shoe Styles On a Budget,’ and most of them are actually affordable!

‘The Moral Bucket List’ piece by David Brooks in the New York Times really inspired me. He discusses the disparity between ‘Resume Virtues’ and ‘Eulogy Virtues,’ and the struggle to strike a balance between the two in our current success-driven culture.

This 60-year old dance teacher shows her young pupils how it’s done!

Sarasota is one of our favorite places to visit, and the City recently installed ‘public pianos’ downtown. This viral video of homeless musician, Donald Gould, playing Styx’s ‘Come Sail Away’ is incredible. I did a little digging, and found out Gould played the clarinet in the US Marine Corps. When he completed his service, he studied music education at Spring Arbor University, until he ran out of money three semesters short of graduation and left school to support his family. Gould’s wife died suddenly in 1998, and in utter heartbroken devastation he turned to drugs, lost his son, and eventually found himself living on the streets in the Suncoast. All that to say: you never know someone’s story; take time to listen. Everyone has something beautiful to offer.

    Thanks for this post, Keira. I am a pianist and instructor, and I wish all of us could just let go and play like no one is watching or listening. It was quite beautiful to watch him, and I plan to show it to my students this week during their lessons <3

    On a different note regarding flat sandals, have you seen these sandals at Target? A fun take on Birkenstocks, but much more budget friendly. Pretty comfy too!

    Take care!

    Thank you for sharing the piece on the pianos. What a lovely idea to have public pianos like that. The video and your story gave me goosebumps…he was amazing. And you are so right. We never know what someone’s story is…
