“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” — Andy Warhol
Side-by-Side. A surprisingly thoughtful, helpful guide on how to stop comparing yourself to others.
Sophisticated. I need to find a new job so I can wear this layered Tahari sheath.
Supported. How I learned to be a mentor and found mentors during my career.
Sale-Priced. Banana Republic is 40% off sale-items this weekend. This machine-washable grey dress, this red, boucle coat, and this snakeskin pump all caught my eye.
Suggested. GQ thinks this is how you should talk to women; are they right?
Strawberries. I can’t help it, I’m completely smitten with Kate Spade’s strawberry print tumbler. This serving dish is pretty fun, too.
Saturated. A wonderful article about the process for developing new colors.
Fancy-Schmancy. I am so in love with this Cinq a Sept dress for summer weddings.
Stop It. What to do about a co-worker who complains all the time.
Sparkly. These Baublebar double-hoops and stacked band set are fun and simple.
Savings. Why women need to save twice as much for retirement.
Stocking Up. It’s not bootie season, but I bought these chic black boots for next year. And these lovely braided sandals for this summer.
Standing Up. Rep. Martha McSally says #metoo and talks about the importance of fighting your way forward.
Last week, Kyle and I assembled our fire pit to get ready for summer. He wanted a way to sit outside after dark and have a glass of wine with friends. I wanted a way to make s’mores. Everyone has their priorities.
I also stocked up on all the s’more making tools I will need. A s’more basket for big groups. Two s’more roasting reels, because if you’re going to be all-in, be all-in. A s’more ingredients storage basket, because, again, all-in. Ah, summer, you have the best snacks.
These Bailey’s Dipped S’mores look amazing.
Wait, why is the chocolate on the outside? Who wants chocolate-covered fingers and unmelted chocolate? This is bothering me way more than it should.
That Cinq a sept dress seems a bit too close to white to wear to a wedding.
Just FYI the booties link takes you to the Bauble Bar ring set! 🙂
I have those snakeskin pumps in the Madison (pointer toe and narrower heel). I love them. They allow me to wear a more fun shoe than a basic black heel with colored dresses without it competing with the dress.
Those shoes are on sale too.
I have that gray BR dress and really like it! It’s got a good balance of structure and stretch and the waist detail is flattering.
One of our first projects when we moved to our house was installing a fire pit surrounded by a patio. It’s one of my favorite features of our house. We have a big pile of regular roasting sticks and are always stocked with S’mores supplies for our own enjoyment and for sharing with friends and family. I keep Hershey’s on hand for others, but I prefer mine with Reese’s peanut butter cups.
On the “How to Talk to Women” I appreciate the general sentiment of not policing women’s behavior or assuming that female-associated habits are weak. But I disagree with the idea that men (or other women!) shouldn’t ever call them out or correct them. I used to have the very bad habit of brushing off compliments ala “Oh this? It’s old/got it on sale/whatever.” It wasn’t until a friend (male) pointed out that that sort of brush off is rude to the person giving the compliment that I considered that perspective and stopped.
That article about color was so fascinating. I had NO idea that inventing color is a thing, a thing that is difficult, and a thing that is lucrative. Or that color and pigment are even different!
hmm I agree I love that cinq a sept dress but too close to white. you wear one light lilac dress that photographs white once and you are scarred forever..
