    This ‘loose ends’ organizer suggestion is the reason you’re the MVP of blogging! SO good! *whips out credit card*

    I second the Ann Taylor shoe recommendation! I just got two new pairs of Ann Taylor shoes – One of them is the Bow pump you posted in pink, and the other is these amazing d’orsay’s. https://www.anntaylor.com/felipa-suede-d'orsay-pumps/421103?skuId=22212870&defaultColor=2042&colorExplode=true&catid=cata000020 in the green. So many compliments already!

    I basically only buy shoes from Ann Taylor now – you can consistently get them 40% off even when they’re new arrivals, they’re comfortable out of the box, look spendy, and they last forever. They’ve been my go to since I was an intern, and I still buy them now that I have more wiggle room in my budget.

    I recently was given a promotion. I knew my merit increase was coming and was going to be higher than most given my performance review. I explained this and was still low balled on the offer. I want the position so I accepted. Once my merit increase went through, I crafted an email explaining my previous salary, my salary after merit, the salary they were offering, and why it’s not reflective of a promotion.

    I have made the ask. The in person meeting is happening Monday morning. Send good vibes.

    Thank you so much for the first link on salary negotiation – I will be transitioning from a temporary position to a permanent hire very soon, and unfortunately since these people know me already, they know I’m young and too much of a people pleaser. I passed my boss some salary data for people in similar positions, so hopefully(!) they realize that I’m using that as a baseline. Time will tell…

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
