My favorite finds from around the web:

6 questions a personal stylist would ask you about your wardrobe. “Most likely, you’re one of the rest of us: A jumble of Pin-spiration, fashion blog, fashion week, and friend advice, left with a closet that’s a blend of the functional, aspirational and from the sale rack.”

Book covers see yellow to attract online shoppers. “There’s a kind of maximalist attitude toward color, I think mainly because we operate from the fearful assumption that no one’s going to look at the book unless it’s screaming at you.”

How to accomplish more by doing less. “Human beings are designed to pulse rhythmically between spending and renewing energy. That’s how we operate at our best.”

• Fashion truths: you are not the only one who feels this way. No heels are actually comfortable, no one can keep their white jeans clean, no one knows how to pee in Spanx.

It’s here!

On the blog: 

One year ago: The ten item wardrobe. “Some people might think this topic is superficial, but we all have to get dressed. If you put some thought and organization into this daily task, you can completely change your life.”

Two years ago: The summer syllabus. “As much as I love my novels, I also read to get smart—to develop my craft, to dive deep into subjects, to explore topics I know nothing about.”

Three years ago: On making messes and granting space. “Let’s cut to the chase: nurturing my kids’ talents looks like a giant mess.”

Five years ago: The definitive guide to Pride & Prejudice on film: 1940 Hollywood edition.

    Hi! I’ve been so looking forward to your summer reading list! I put in my email earlier today to receive the list and it was never sent. Tried it again tonight as well. Wondering if there is a glitch or if it’s me?

      It’s a tech glitch. 99.5% of those emails arrive where they belong on schedule, and I’m sorry you’re in the remaining.5%! I’m on it. 🙂

    The Pride and Prejudice review is great! I’m curious about watching that one now 🙂

    It’s interesting that you included the WSJ post on yellow book covers. I’ve just recently noticed that I will avoid books with yellow covers; they irritate me so much I don’t go any further.
