1) This profile of publishing pioneer Nan Talese was so engrossing. (Vanity Fair)

2) The origami neckline on this work sheath is superb–a solid buy at under-$100.

3) Has the changing face of feminism left the #girlboss behind? (Buzzfeed)

4) Need tops? A ruffle detail shell, a tie-front poplin blouse, a plus-size eyelet detail top.

5) 20 Ways to Spring Clean Your Life. (Because I’m Addicted)

6) Mango has the best blazers, this structured one and this ruffled sleeve one are great.

7) Women don’t brag about themselves enough, so how do they get ahead? (TNP)

8) For spring, I love these low Bandolino wedges and these Marc Fisher pumps.

9) How to train your mind to remember anything. (CNN)

    Love the dress in #2, but I am so beyond over exposed zippers. I know they’re on-trend at the moment, but they just scream tacky to me. I’ve bit the bullet and purchased two dresses at Nordstrom Rack that were otherwise gorgeous save that one detail (and at 50% off the clearance rack price, the cost was nice enough for me to overlook it).

    #3 is super interesting. I’ve always been a bit skeptical about the #girlboss trend, and one of my reactions to the last election was to shift my professional goals. After spending the last few months watching and planning, I’m getting excited to see what we all accomplish next.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
