I have Healthcare Law and Advanced Torts finals left, so just one post today.  One semester to go, one semester to go…

***

1) Three reasons why you aren’t reaching your full potential. (Fast Company)

2) Need a chic, affordable clutch?  Hit up Sole Society.  This pewter, embellished clutch caught my eye.

3) The five steps to becoming a Washington Socialite.  And the biography of the greatest D.C. socialite of all time, Alice Roosevelt Longworth. (Washingtonian; The New York Times)

4) Bloomingdale’s is offering 15% off almost everything. This Black Halo Kento dress is calling my name.

5) Is it ever okay to change your shoes in public? The rules of party shoes. (Vogue)

6) This $50 Mango knit-cotton blend dress is chic and comfy; and I love the funnel neck.  Sold.  Also, this red, fitted dress is perfect for semi-casual, holiday parties.

7) The people watching at the Swedish Royal Wedding looks sublime — so much spray tan, so little time. (Cosmopolitan)

8) ASOS has a $75 trench coat that is absolute perfection.  Their double-breasted camel coat is fab.  And this neutral-print blanket scarf is perfect for staying warm while traveling.

9) Need to reduce your holiday stress?  Four self-care tips. (The Everygirl)

10) Target has 30% off women’s clothing.  This wide-stripe Merona sweater dress is so fun. For a holiday party, this white Studio One tank dress is sublime.  Both are under-$50.

11) How to stop wasting time on bad first dates. (The Cut)

Gift Guide. I added them to one of my earlier guides, but I love key fobs and key chains as a gift.  They work for many recipients and can be found in any price point.

This Rebecca Minkoff tassel fob is classic choice.  For a bit more bling, this Marc by Marc Jacobs cabochon bag charm is just right.  For a little bit of luxury, try this vintage Chanel key ring.

    Ha, the bad first date article and the mention of the roommate locked out of the apartment excuse may have just given me SO much more free time.

    Dress 3 and 4 from the Swedish royal wedding is the official dress for the ladies-in-waiting, so not an unfortunate coincidence. It was last updated in the 80s – hence the dated look- but it’s based on a much older dress that all debutantes had to wear.

  3. SM says:

    Absolutely loved the bad first date article. After a bad first date where I got sucked into drinks for 2 hours, I wowed to bring cash with me to every first date so that if it sucks, I can throw money on the table and exit stage left.

  4. Mel says:

    I just finished reading a bio about Alice Roosevelt Longworth and Elenor Roosevelt (Hissing Cousins). Alice was one bad ass chick.

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.

Styling White for Fall and Winter

A white or cream business suit is a great choice in the summer, but who needs to spend hundreds of dollars on a suit that they can only wear three months of the year? Here’s how to restyle your white or cream suit for fall/winter. Cream Suits vs. White Suits // For my money, a […]
