***

1) How to be a better friend even when you’re busy? (Fast Company)

2) H&M hits a home run with this $25 pleat-front tote.  It’s a versatile style.

3) Do I have to wash my face everyday? (GQ)

4) Tired of khaki?  I am obsessed with this blush trench coat.  This navy trench is also lovely.  And this heavier-weight grey trench.  All of them are at ASOS for under-$130.

5) Standing desks sound great, but do they really offer tangible benefits? NPR isn’t so sure.

6) Everlane is now making fitted poplin button-ups.  I’m also digging these super cute silk pajama sets.

7) A model realized she needed more from life, so she started a non-profit to support other women. (More)

8) Oh, L.K. Bennett, you’re so good.  This cap-sleeve professional dress in deep pink is gorgeous.  I’m also smitten with this blush-colored peplum jacket.

9) The art and science of apologizing. (The Atlantic)

10) Have cellulite?  I’m just intrigued by something called Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.

11) Remember Normcore?  The idea that sweatshirts and mom jeans were high fashion? Guess what, it was a fake trend.

12) Rebecca Taylor always has lovely things, but she has out done herself this season.  This Dia crochet skirt and top set is so fab.  And this floral print top is the perfect balance of pretty and chic.

    I’m just here to say that I love that you included a quote from Carl Sagan.

    Re; Normcore. There are so many trends where I’m just like…someone is screwing with us. Like the latest one with a shoulder bag strung like a crossbody that some designer did in a fashion week show, and now I’m seeing street style photos like that..come on now! Common sense people.

    Re: the NPR article, I have two bathroom options at work and I use the one that’s farther away in order to move as much as possible during the day. But forcing employees to use a bathroom 5 floors up without an elevator is a little intense!

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
