State of the Blog: Battle Stations

Oct 2, 2014

You know that moment when you feel it…that tickle in your throat, the tightness in your chest, the feeling that you half the energy you did this morning.  That was me, yesterday afternoon.  Now, my body is in full meltdown.

Sleep is more important than blogging.  If you need me, I’ll be drinking my fourth cup of Theraflu, wrapped in a blanket cardigan, writing a letter to Santa, reminding him that he still hasn’t delivered the bio-hazard suit that I requested two Christmases ago.

I did spend a few minutes last night searching Piperlime looking for pieces to complete my fall wardrobe.  Here is some of what caught my eye.

Pim + Larkin Double Layer Wrap Coat ($159)

I adore the charcoal and camel color palette.  Yummy.

Bailey 44 Sublimation Skirt ($143)

Tinley Road Leather Patch Sweater ($69)

cn8589968

BB Dakota Katia Jacket ($89)

I own this sweater.  The material is not as heavy as I hoped, but I really like it.  It’s cozy.

    How did I not realize you had an instragram?? There goes all productivity for the next hour…

    I hope you feel better!

    In general I find BB Dakota’s “coats” to be more like sweaters.

    I have a tickle in my throat today!..Well, more than a tickle and my face feels like a puffer fish….but I’m telling myself it’s allergies and putting up a fight. I’ve been unscathed by the several office plagues that have ravaged our tiny office this year. I’m not falling now!

    Also wanted to let you know that the video ad below the posts (I think it is new) is playing automatically through Chrome.

      I sent in an email about it. I apologize for this, I’ve made it clear several times that this blog cannot have ads that play sound automatically. Unfortunately, with the wide variety of browsers available, I don’t think the silence is universal.

      • Leigh says:

        Yeah I completely understand. It’s fine for me; I just mute my speakers. I wanted to give you a heads up in case you weren’t aware yet!

  6. Kate M says:

    How is Pim + Larkin’s quality, generally? I love that coat, but Piperlime doesn’t list the fabrics used for it or anything.

  7. Kari says:

    I bought Theraflu at the store this week based on your recommendation. Thank you! I have never recovered from a severe cold so quickly.

  8. YouSaucyMinx says:

    The coat is gorgeous.

    Feel better! Theraflu is awesome, but Tylenol Cold 7 Flu makes me feel like myself, but better.
