85. weekend to-do's

  1. brookline brick and mortar. boston general store's new coolidge corner outpost is officially open for business! i'm so happy to be able to pop in whenever i like for april's beautifully curated selection of goods (and to visit the shop's adorable mascot, olive).
  2. rookie of the year. tavi gevinson started writing and editing her blog style rookie back in 2008 (she was 12). since 2011, rookie has become a seriously influential source of pop culture and feminist discussion for young women. they've even published 4 hard copy "yearbooks". the fourth yearbook was released this week and tavi will be appearing with it at the brattle theater on sunday afternoon. i'm excited to hear some tips and wisdom from a blogging veteran.
  3. mahler in motion. the boston ballet recently debuted third symphony of gustav mahler: a ballet by john neumeier. this piece, choreographed to the composer's longest symphony, has been described as a work of genius. sounds like an epic date night awaits...
  4. on repeat. this.

  1. brunch time. beat brasserie in harvard square has been hopping since it opened in 2013. there is consistently a line out the door during the evening hours and the bar area is packed. while i like the night time atmosphere, i'm looking forward to checking out their brunch time environment. also, they carry sophia's greek yogurt which i am slightly obsessed with. anywhere i can get my hands on this treat is a good place for brunch in my book!
  2. strutting at the sinclair. english rock band, the struts are coming to the sinclair this weekend. lead singer luke spiller has a freddy mercury-esque way about him that is sure to be entertaining. can't wait to dance my butt off.
  3. closet clean out. now that we are well into fall, i am taking time to reevaluate my fall/winter wardrobe. back in march, i pared down and streamlined my spring/summer items after our post on the concept of the french 5 basic wardrobe. now i'm looking forward to getting an edited winter closet in order.
