    If you need more support for sports bras check out Moving Comfort. I have two of their Juno bras that work really well for bootcamp and HIIT!

    It’s funny the sports bra article is from Equinox’s blog. I go to Equinox and I never see anyone wearing anything other than a teensy bra with those strings in the back that criss cross every which way. The Lululemon Energy bra is a good compromise– cute straps but still has some support.

  3. Marlene says:

    Enell sport bras are fantastic for support. Plus, if one has a difficult time finding a size beyond a “C”, they have it. S/M/L doesn’t work for everyone, especially when it comes to high-impact sports.

  4. Heather says:

    What the student debt article doesn’t address, which is in my opinion one of the biggest issues, is that people are coming out with high debt loads which is limiting their spending power. My husband and I make very good salaries and are not in danger of defaulting on our loans, but our loans from law school are so high that instead of buying a house, or making other significant purchases outside of the bare essentials (which could help stimulate the economy), we are making student loan payments each month. So we can and do make our loan payments without fail, but as a result our ability to be active participants in the rest of the economy is limited.

    • Betsy says:

      Totally agree. My husband and I have good jobs, but because we don’t have any student loan debt (parents, scholarships, jobs) we are living a very different life than a number of our peers. People ask us all the time how we can afford to have kids, and we both have discussed student loan debt as a huge factor. The nuts and bolts financial factors get discussed, but the socioeconomic impact goes largely unaddressed in the media.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
