1) From marriages that look perfect (but aren’t) to teenage girls selling the lie of the picture perfect life, is social media cursing us to live inauthentic lives?

2) This structured navy blue bag is a great alternative to basic black and brown.

3) How Millenials are redefining business travel.

4) This Limited coat with a cool neckline and a soft hue is so lovely.  I also like this navy shawl-collar peacoat; it has a dramatic shape.

5) How much it really costs to be in a long-distance relationship.

6) This purple cocktail dress from ASOS is so dramatic and gorgeous, and just $101.

7) Jenna Lyons writes about the skirt that changed her outlook on life.  I have a whole new respect for her.

8) Theory has some really pretty pieces right now.  I love this flirty ivory dress.  This crisp, collarless blazer is perfect for work.

9) A police dashcam video functions as a racial “Rohrshach Test,” illustrating how much of our worldview is a matter of perspective.

10) Need some chic sweaters?  This green one has lace detail on the sleeves.  This border-stripe open cardigan is modern and sleek.  I also like this relaxed olive and grey stripe cardi.

11) Racked has a story about losing people, losing things, and finding God at the unclaimed baggage center.

Eye Candy. This Roland Mouret fitted top in emerald green is perfectly chic.

    Loved the Jenna Lyons letter. Thanks for sharing it.

    Thanks for sharing the article on Jenna Lyons. I didn’t know that about her and I really relate because I’ve been stared at most of my life (I had a traumatic brain injury as a child that caused permanent damage). There’s a lot about my appearance that I can’t control or change. But the clothes and jewelry that I wear, Getting my nails done by a professional, the way I do my makeup- those are all things that I can control. And that helps a lot. Fashion is criticized for being superficial but it’s actually very powerful

    The Racked article was great!

    Ha – I read the image at first as “My heart wants boots”.

    Yes it does, Belle. Yes. It. Does.

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
