Wright Now January 2014 | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com

Wright Now is a sometimes monthly, mostly random series where I share a handful of things I'm crushing on at that moment in time.

1  |  I don't usually wear tunic style blouses because I feel that I look pregnant. And who wants sideways glances from strangers wondering if this old woman is pregnant? Or not. NOT. I saw this blouse at World Market last week when I bought these for the Studio, picked it up and then put it back down. There were only two left. Then I saw a woman walking around with the blouse and that made me hightail it back over there and pick up the last blouse. I'm thinking I'll wear it with some leggings and ballet flats, but I don't know if I can pull off that look. I'm more of a prepster than a hippie.

2  |  Definitely needing my reading glasses a lot these days. I was using just some half readers from the drugstore and I got tired of the cheapie glasses with cheapie lenses and happened upon this company when I saw it in a friend's Facebook feed. Going with the full frame nerdy option, I bought them full price, but see that they're now $5, but don't know how long that will last. I ordered again, this time in black and also purchased these, just because they looked fun.

3  |  I really prefer Uberkinger, but that's hard to find here in the USA, so Perrier will do. I have been trying to cut back on my soda intake, which I've done pretty well with, and found a mega pack of Perrier at Costco on our last visit. The girls dislike the taste and I thought Gordon would, too, but he actually likes it.

4  |  Bath is my wintertime fragrance and I like its clean aura. It's me. I wear Beach in the warmer months and it's perfect and reminds me of...the beach. But, I like Bath better.

5  |  When I first began my search for a new planner, I saw this planner and knew that's what I wanted. Well, it is a popular item and was unavailable at the time. I opted, then for a Filofax Finsbury and loved it. And still do. Victoria received my original pocket size as a Christmas gift and I ordered a personal size, giving me more room to write and plan. I love my Filofax planners and it has made such a difference for me. One day I saw that the ochre Malden was available in a Personal size and ordered it and waited 2 months for it to arrive. I like it, but I don't love it like I thought I would. I definitely miss my sunny, happy, yellow Finsbury.


  1. These are always fun posts to maybe discover new things :) I want to go to World Market now!

    1. We don't get to World Market often, but for us it's always an adventure looking at all the interesting goodies from around the world. I like to check out the German food section, too, wink, wink.

  2. I love that top, Monika, and please! As if you would look pregnant! SMH. Silly girl. You look wonderful no matter what you wear! :)

    1. I need to remember that when it finally gets warm enough to wear it, Kate!

  3. That's a very cute top! And it will look awesome on you! Be brave! Love hearing about your favourites.
