5) Single employees aren’t there to pick up the slack for married ones. (Quartz)

6) This tie-sleeve blouse and orange fan-leaf skirt are perfect for the summer office.

7) They quit their jobs to travel the world, how they pay for it. (Marie Claire)

8) New Obsession: Tassel trim, like this Max Mara top and this Cooper & Ella dress.

9) Why valedictorians don’t often become millionaires. (CNBC)

10) This crossover ring and Maddy ring are total David Yurman knock-offs.

11) How to easily wash your clothes when you’re on the road. (Racked)

12) These white, distressed Frame jeans are hot, but these $59 jeans are also fab.

    Belle! I love the quote today, and it’s especially appropriate because I started my own work style blog yesterday! You’ve been such an inspiration to me (I was so excited to go to your event in DC last week but couldn’t due to a last-minute work trip), and I wanted to thank you. I hope you’ll check out my blog sometime (it probably be more interesting once I have more content, haha); I’d love to hear what you think.

    Thanks again, and keep up the great work. I hope to meet you in DC someday!

    Re #5- some companies offer benefits to employees’ families/close friends that aren’t tied to marital status, which is a good step. A longtime friend works for JetBlue, and he’s able to give a major benefit (flying standby on the airline for free) to any designated individual for any amount of time he’s still full-time with the company. This was immensely helpful to his now-widowed mom and younger brother.
