1) ‘I want all the perks of maternity leave without the kids.’   And a reply, ‘Maternity leave isn’t a break from work.‘ (NYPost; The Cut)

2) Reed Krakoff is bringing high-style to Kohl’s with their REED diffusion line.  Don’t miss their Atlantique and Boxer satchels.

3) How to spring clean your smartphone. (Real Simple)

4) This Halogen open jacket is a fabulous spring item, comes in four colors.  I also love their criss-cross hem tee for weekend wear.

5) Did you know Drybar made how-to videos?  Tips on the perfect blowout, and how to use their products (like my favorite Texas Tea).

6) I’m hunting for a tan, high-heel sandal for summer.  I think I’ve settled on M.Gemi’s Voce Sandal.

7) Stop saying, “I feel like.” (The New York Times)

8) BP. has great pieces for under-$100.  I love this cotton field jacket.  Their Adriatic sandals are also very cool.

9) The future of shopping: Trapping you in a club that you didn’t know you joined. (Bloomberg)

10) This lace, collared Michael Kors top is a show-stopper.  They made the same style in a dress.

11) Beware the rule following co-worker, Harvard study warns. (The Washington Post)

12) Hourglass, makers of my favorite Ambient Light Powder, now make an Ambient Light Primer.  Like a prayer you didn’t know you had.

    Love the Voce – and have been considering them, too. My two pairs of M.Gemi pumps are my absolute favorite shoes.

    Love that BP field jacket, but does anyone else feel like olive jackets/anoraks are just EVERYWHERE?! Any suggestions in alternative colors?

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.
