Although I’m trying to watch less mindless programs (read: repeats on HGTV and E!), I really like TV! One of the shows that I’m really happy to see in it’s second season is Younger.
Have you seen it? The premise is of a 40 year old newly single mom who’s trying to get back into the work force. She’s talented and smart but overqualified so she decides to act like a 26 year old to get a job as an assistant in the publishing industry. The show stars Sutton Foster as Liza who makes both 40 and 26 look good. I like her character because she has the wisdom her younger friends lack but doesn’t have a total grasp on whatever the kids are saying these days. Remember when I asked what ‘bae’ meant the other day on twitter?. Even though it’s fictional, I can relate. I binge watched the entire first season in a day or two and now rewatching again as I wait for new episodes (it’s on at 10 on Wednesday nights)
Younger makes me think back to my single NYC days in a nostalgic sort of way. It’s not as gritty as Girls (another show I love) but still entertaining.
The costume styling is inspiring and so on point - done by Patricia Fields from SATC fame. Not that I’m planning on doing any exact copies of what they’re wearing - it’s just the kind of outfits that make you want to play around with what you already have in your closet. (Here’s a photo/story of when I met Pat in 2011! Re-reading her advice couldn’t have come at a better time for me.)
Wowza! I’m sad I have to clarify this, but no, I do not get paid to watch TV and this is not a sponsored post. I’ve always been 100% transparent with my relationships. I’m dabbling in writing about my other interests and obviously I’m an amateur in doing that! But in more exciting news, next week I’m talking about one of my favorite new costume dramas! Stay tuned!
