    Oh my gosh, I fell down the rabbit hole of “The Arrangement” too! I’m quite surprised by how much I like it! I highly recommend it to anyone on the fence about it.

  2. Cait says:

    I can’t decide if I love or hate that Mango bag. It kind of looks like a picnic basket to me, but I’d like to see how you’d style it!

    Both links for the Express blouses take me to this: https://www.express.com/clothing/women/sheer-plunging-tietoneck-bodysuit/pro/8622520/cat430028?AID=11388515&PID=2178999&SID=2432094255&CID=550&pubname=ShopStyle.com&pubID=2178999

    I know we’re all about “know your office” but I have a hard time imagining that’s appropriate for most workplaces… 😉

    I’m getting on the Axios bandwagon too! So far so good, but I’ve found that subscribing to all of their newsletters is a bit much in the mornings. Others that I’ve stuck with are the Broadsheet (quality analysis focused on women), Polar News (pairs articles with polarized perspectives so you can see both sides), SigDigs (love the 538 soundbites), and theSkimm.

  5. Shelley says:

    I’m listening to “Missing Richard Simmons” too. It’s a great podcast. I’m addicted to podcasts now and I listen during my work outs. I usually just lift weights (right now) and I can’t get through a work out without a good podcast.
    Have you listened to Serial (season 1)- if so then you should listen to Undisclosed. I just discovered it and I’m mesmerized. It’s lawyers breaking down the case and it’s fascinating. Whether you think Adnan did or not you can’t argue that there is no way he should have been convicted based on the evidence.

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.
