Favorite of the Day: Margaret Howell

I prefer writing outside of the house. On a stoop. In the back corner of a coffee shop. At the library. On those days that I can devote completely to writing, or to reading whatever book I can get my hands on, my wardrobe shifts. There is little fussiness. No headbands and bracelets and all those things that seem to get in the way when it's time to settle down. That, if I do find myself writing while wearing them, have to be taken off and placed on the table next to me. I prefer clothes that are easy, comfortable and classic in those moments. Margaret Howell showed a runway full of those types of clothes.

The kind that make me want to reach for my notebook and lose an afternoon.
