curl up with a book
reading: the lost art. is there really anything better to do when home? those of you that are part of my book club with style know that i’m an avid reader. so much so that i started a book club. if you’re looking for recommendations, i’ve taken a shot of a section of my library that includes some of the more recent books i’ve read over the past few months. i’d recommend all of them. grab a book and a blanket, curl up on your couch, and read.
clean your closet
i’m a big advocate for closet cleanses. i talk about it regularly over here on the blog, and if you’re at home looking for something to do, now’s the time. twice a year, i ruthlessly purge my closet to keep my wardrobe streamlined and in tip-top condition for the upcoming season. if you’re looking for tips, tricks, and advice i’ve outlined my process here and here.
have a movie night
movie night! once you’ve made it through all of your books, make a bowl of popcorn and grab a movie. last fall i put together a list of my top 5 favorite classic movies. i’m going to repost them here.
5. The Thomas Crown Affair
The Thomas Crown Affair starring Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway, and Paul Burke. i’ve always been fascinated by the high-end art world, and i love a good heist movie. so when you couple the two, and add great performances by McQueen and Dunaway, you absolutely cannot go wrong.
4. It Happened One Night
in my #4 spot is the classic It Happened One Night starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. this is an older one, so some of my younger readers might have missed it, but i definitely encourage you to check it out.
3. To Catch a Thief
there’s not much to say about this movie that hasn’t already been said. it appears on almost if not every top movie list. Casablanca holds my #2 spot. stay tuned for my #1.
1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
make an immune-boosting soup
chicken noodle soup for the soul. it’s a great immune-boosting soup. super simple and unbelievably tasty—and it keeps. i made a batch this past winter for fridays with oscar.
have a game night
finally, a great way to spend an evening at home is a game night. i spent last night playing board games with my son and Kelly. we pulled out Scrabble. some of our other favorites: Taboo, Scattergories, and Boggle. some of our new favorites: Sagrada, Azul, and Patchwork.
