Channeling Mrs. Roper

Back in the day, I loved “Three’s Company.”

Watching re-runs now requires a massive suspension of disbelief, as the plots are pretty transparent and the double entendres are entirely cringe-worthy.

One thing that does hold up: the fashions of caftan-loving Mrs. Roper, played in the series by actress Audra Lindley.

This swimsuit cover-up from Tommy Bahama (a brand I am not usually crazy about) caught my eye for its overall Mrs. Roper-ish vibe, which I dig a lot.

This Lilly Pulitzer one would also do just fine in this category:

And couldn’t you just see Janet or Chrissy wearing this number?

Sochi

My brother-in-law, K, has a really fascinating career that allows him to travel around the globe in high-profile settings. He has an enviable amount of frequent flyer miles, to say the least.

Right now he’s in Sochi, Russia. You may have heard about a series of sporting events going on there now.

He’s been sending a few pictures, including these of his daily walk to watch the sun rise over Black Sea. The cairn is his handiwork.
