5) What life is like in Mosul after two years of ISIS rule. (Economist)

8) This layered lace sweater from Selfridge’s is phenom.  I also love this impossibly affordable Dune clutch.

9) Cat Marnell, the captivating addict and beauty editor, is still alive. (The Cut)

10) This black piped Calvin Klein blouse and this Anne Klein tweed jacket are office classics.

What I’m Considering. This J.Crew sweater is so adorable, even I’m thinking about buying it.

What I’m Perplexed By. Will the real Kellyanne Conway please stand up? A surprisingly in-depth bio-piece that includes lots of details about politics, rhetoric, and having a public/private face.

What I’m Listening To. This You Tube video that plays eight hours of relaxing nature sounds.  Oh yes, it really works.

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.
