1) It’s time to let go of work martyrdom and start taking vacation. (Travel + Leisure)

2) This $20 grey-edged cuff from Baublebar is the perfect mix of sophisticated and modern.  Their gorgeous Peacemaker Ring is also $20 for a limited time.

3) Ask a Boss: How to improve your work ethic. (NYMag)

4) Fall Skirts: This Factory berry-hued wool skirt and this Ralph Lauren skirt with a waterfall ruffle are both superb.

5) Which clothing brands can survive multiple washes–with a shoutout to yours truly. (Yahoo)

6) My favorite blouse, this Sanna Asymmetric Top from Reiss, is back in stock.  Also, this dusty rose blouse ($60?!) is perfect for the fall-summer transition.

7) Simple steps to becoming more assertive at the office. (Glamour)

8) Mindy Mae’s double-hooded sweatshirts are the ultimate in coziness, while being a little bit chic.  I own one, so should you.

    Belle,

    Is the double-hooded sweatshirt true to size?

  2. Lynn says:

    The sweatshirt is cute, I really like the lace one! I popped by their website, and there’s a lot of cute, casual clothes. I’m hesitant because of the low prices, TBH. I’ve never heard of Mindy Mae. How is the sweatshirt holding up? Is the quality ok? I’m guessing this is all made in sweatshops (to be fair, what isn’t these days), but I don’t want something that falls apart after one wash.

    • Belle says:

      I bought the striped hoodie last year, and have been quite happy with the quality. No issues, several washes. No idea where it’s made.

  3. Alison says:

    I know I’m not one who is particularly hard on my clothes nor do I over-wash clothes, but only 12 washes for things that performed “well” seems ridiculously low.

    • Kelly says:

      The article seems to focus on how the seaming holds up. I usually have to get rid of clothes because the fabric starts to show wear. Sometimes after one wash cycle.

      • Belle says:

        I’ve had whole sleeves fall off (thx j.crew), but you’re right, fabric is the second most important thing.

  4. Lauren says:

    Speaking of quality; anyone tried the Brooks Brother’s Red Fleece line? Any good? I’m salivating over this emerald dress; https://www.brooksbrothers.com/Stretch-Wool-V-Neck-Dress/SX00073,default,pd.html

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.
