Style + Ask The Edit

State of the Blog: Manic Mondays


Between being sick last week and having a paper due, I wasn’t able to complete any blog posts this weekend.  (Even though I would much rather be writing about zip sweaters and tall boots than reading for contracts or briefing cases for property class.  Estates and future interests, the lawyers in the group feel my pain.)  But everything will back to normal tomorrow with some great Ask Belles about winter coats, leather leggings, and more!

xoxo, Belle

    I hope you’re feeling better! Nothing like being sick, having a day-job enormous workload, and blogging to leave you exhausted.

    But I love the mohair sweater in this post. It leave sme intrigued.

        I don’t love them either, I think they look uncomfortable.

      These 360 studs from BaubleBar look really similar, but might be just a little smaller.

      Erica, the original ones are Dior (Mise en Dior Tribal Earrings) but you can find knock-offs all over Etsy.

      I bought this pair, and I have been very happy with them:

      Belle, I feel your pain! I have tried to block out anything related to the rule against perpetuities; and thankfully, in five years of practicing law I’ve only had to deal with interests in land once!!

      Or a tutorial on the side bun. So cute! Whenever I try to do one, I just look like I have a weird bulb thing by my ear, and it tugs at tiny hairs, so I get sick of it after an hour or so.

    Here’s something for your tomorrow post…I liked the ‘look’ (on other people, with smaller thighs!) of the (non)leather leggings, but didn’t think I could actually pull it off. I’ve ordered waxed black skinny jeans instead. What do you think?
