    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.

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
