Week/End

MAKE: this warming, healthful sunchoke soup with caramelized shallot. Never worked with sunchokes (sometimes called Jerusalem artichokes) before? Here’s what they look like.

BOOKMARK: an in-depth piece about the woman in charge of revamping the whole Gap look — and what it means to revitalize “iconic”.

TRY: your hand at this beautiful, wintry floral arrangement.

EXPLORE: Clementine Daily. Great roster of ladies running it, and beautiful, interesting content to boot!

FILE: This baby blue as a must try color come spring. From pants to shoes to these booties, it’s a yes.

CONSIDER: that “Do What You Love” might not be as inspiring as you think. We discussed it more over on The Well.

FOLLOW: Karen Cheng’s Give It 100 project. I learned about it from browsing around Quora design posts, which I started checking out because of this post on Rashi’s blog. In fact, follow all.

DOWNLOAD: this book on the power of habit. I promise, it’s a fascinating read, and will make you completely re-examine your everyday routine. I’ll likely chat about it more at some point, but wanted to share in case you needed something to read this weekend!

Speaking of which, have a good one (and if you’re in the midwest or on the east coast — stay warm).

    That recipe looks amazing! Now I just need to figure out where to buy sunchokes. I love Clementine Daily — such an inspiring group of women, with such genuine and varied content! Thanks for a great weekend post – they always make my Fridays better.

    Love that write up on Gap. I am excited to see what she brings to the table. I wasn’t too enthused about the Spring line but it is early yet

    I really liked reading the article on doing what you love – it adds a whole new dimension to my outlook as I am approaching the end of undergrad and trying to decide what to do with my future.
