The Workday Reading: June 8, 2015

Jun 8, 2015

1) 13 young women discuss the things they wish people talked about in graduation speeches.

2) This morning, it was striped casual dresses.  Banana Republic offers this striped sheath dress for work.

3) Engaged? How much you’d make by skipping the expensive wedding and investing instead.  Also, an article on how long the average marriage around the world lasts.

4) My under-eye circles have reached a new level of darkness thanks to law school.  So I added this pinky corrector from Becca underneath.  If you’re looking for a drugstore version, try this primer from L’Oreal’s Studio line.

5) Buzzfeed chronicles how a thief built the appearance of a jet-set lifestyle by stealing thousands of Instagram photos.  Talk about catfishing.

6) This simple cigar band ring, in your choice of rose, yellow, or white metal, has a place in every jewelry wardrobe.

7) In 2008, Hillary Clinton bought Iowans snow shovels.  Now, her Hawkeye supporters are wondering if she and her staff can understand Iowa well enough to win it.

8) This coordinating navy eyelet top and sheer-accent skirt are a fun option for summer weddings.

9) Smitten Kitchen shoes us how to make “Saltine Crack Ice Cream Sandwiches.”  Because, why not?

    I just have to say I am so happy to have found your blog. I love the “Work Day Readings” so much. A great mix of fashion, current events, politics and other miscellaneous stuff that I didn’t know I wanted to read until I read it. Thank you for this blog. I really enjoy it!

    They’ve also done studies that show that people who spend more on their weddings get divorced/separated quicker than people who spend less on their weddings.

      And spending nothing on your wedding, i.e., not getting married, will GUARANTEE that you do not get divorced! 😉

    I am DONE with these articles about how much more you’d make if you invested the money instead of spending it on your wedding. DONE. Obviously you shouldn’t spend more than you can reasonably afford, but having all of your family and friends in one room at one time is priceless, and I’m not sorry for a single red cent spent on mine.

    • Belle says:

      I think most of the articles are just trying to get people to think about the money in a different way. I think most people plan a wedding comparing the price of theirs to the price of someone else’s. I think it’s good for people to think about the cost in terms of what else it could buy. I don’t think it’s realistic to tell someone to spend $0, but it is helpful in terms of saying, “Hey, this is real money,” which I think some couples forget. If you did the calculus and said this is worth every penny, awesome. But I can’t tell you how many people I know, esp. those who got married young, who say they wasted money on certain things because they weren’t old enough to understand how much money $2,500 was.

    Love the graduation speech article. I went to grad school and have been done with both for many years, but still found several words of wisdom from these recent grads. My favorites are, “No regrets. Just lessons,” and “Mopey people don’t get shit done.” Thanks Belle.
