1) The art of making and not making plans. (The New York Times)

2) Test drive a fall trend with these $27 pointy-toe smoking flats before committing to a pricier pair.

3) Should you break your day up into 100 10 minute blocks? (Wait But Why)

4) Add a festive brooch to this sapphire velvet dress from Felicity & Coco for a chic holiday look.

5) How to bounce back from a job rejection. (The Everygirl)

6) I spotted this side-split tweed skirt from Halogen at the store. Much prettier in person.

7) Good Girls Revolt: The legacy of the Newsweek lawsuit. (Newsweek)

8) Lace-up henleys are big right now.  I love this H&M top, and this animal print lace up blouse.

    I have the side-split tweed skirt from Nordstrom. Confirmed that it is much cuter in person than online. I prefer wearing it with black tights because I found my (glaringly) pale legs to be too much of a contrast. Note that it runs very true to size / a bit on the snug side – there is absolutely no stretch in the tweed. Worth it, though.

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.
