1) They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.  Harvard Business Review asks whether employees who go on vacation are the ones who get promoted?

2) In the market for a new summer business suit?  This stone-colored Alex Marie suit with a nipped-in waist is fantastic.

3) Who hates their jobs more, East Coasters or West Coasters?

4) Does your sunscreen make you breakout?  Cosmo suggests 10 sunscreens for sensitive and acne-prone skin.  Personally, I like La Roche Posay Anthelios.

5) Read this article from Thought Catalog if you’re afraid you’ll never find ‘the one.’

6) Have you heard of Howlite?  It’s a stone with the veiny texture of Carrara marble.  This Ann Taylor Howlite cuff makes a real statement.  I also like this multi-strand necklace that mixes white and turquoise Howlite for a summery, boho-chic look.

7) After comments about crying in the lab and falling in love with their male counterparts, female scientists take on sexism. #DistractinglySexy

8) I am an iced tea addict.  This Takeya infusing pitcher lets me turn out 2-quarts in no time.  It’s also good for making spa water.

9) California Sunday Magazine takes on Australia’s infamous murder mystery, The Lost Man.

    Ha, when I got back from my last vacation, my boss told me I wasn’t allowed to leave ever again. So proud.

  2. Jenn S. says:

    The Takeya pitchers are great! Primula makes some nice infuser pitchers, too – I have one that is rather utilitarian in style that I got from Amazon for like $13, but just got my girlfriend a more aesthetically pleasing one as part of her wedding gift.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
