The Edition: No. 48

Sep 10, 2018

Nobody on the road,
Nobody on the beach.
I feel it in the air,
The summer’s out of reach.

–Don Henley

Lifted. Don’t underestimate the power of women supporting each other at work.

Worked Over. The best of Boden is at Nordstrom.  I am all over this printed wrap dress and this super unique shirtdress.

Confusing. The Guardian breaks down some straightforward solutions for “eating green,” and they may not be what you think.

Strengthened. This hair kit from Ulta lets you try several hair strengthening products for just $10.

Tiresome. Why your desk job is so exhausting.

Primed. J.Crew’s classic pieces are now on Amazon. Love the quilted field jacket. Need this ruffle shoulder sweater for fall.

Metaphysical. “The best thing my psychic Mom taught me was that no one wants to hear the truth.”

Transitioning. I believe these $24 Universal Thread sandals are the perfect September shoe.

Rising. Tips for getting that promotion on lock.

Obsessed. Completely losing it over Sandro’s “western style” shirt.  Get the look of a contrasting bow-neck with this H&M shirt; perfect for under your black suits.

Surviving. Meet the teachers moonlighting as Instagram influencers.

All I want when fall comes is to eat soups.  Warm, comforting soups.  To let them simmer in my crockpot all day and come home to a hot bowl and crusty bread at night.

But I made the mistake of falling in love with a man who won’t eat soup (or beans or mushrooms or pickles or casseroles…).  And it is seriously a problem.

So please, someone eat this Tuscan Sausage and Potato Soup for me.  And this Sweet Potato and Carrot soup that you can make in my beloved Instant Pot.  And all the other soups on my Pinterest board

What kind of person doesn’t like soup?!?!

    My husband doesn’t like soup either. I don’t understand. I sometimes make it anyway, and he’ll holds his nose and eat it but there’s always a lot of grumbling involved. I do think that over the past 7 years, I’ve worn him down a bit and now there are a few he’ll eat, but only if the right conditions are met…

    So many great articles! Really love the psychic mom one, fascinating storytelling.

    I have a female colleague at a similar career level and we have a very close bond. Working in IT security and infrastructure already make us odd ducks among our peers, it’s not an industry where there are few women at the top, there are just few women period. So we embrace it. Our male colleagues joke about it, we joke about it and then we kick butt. As you said, a rising tide lifts all boats. Before we worked together we pushed through it alone, but together we are stronger and the work feels easier, our loads lighter.

      In IT Security as well, and agreed, there aren’t as many of us as you’d like. I’ve been lucky that I’ve had supportive male and female mentors, but now there’s a small group of women here who are about the same level in different areas of IT. We meet up around once a month and chat about everything. The networking (heh) is priceless; it really helps having a POC in different areas. If they can’t help, they’ll usually know who can!

    Why not just freeze the extra soup for yourself? Easy, healthy leftovers and great for work.

  4. Sus says:

    My father won’t eat soup either, and Mom loves it, so sometimes she’ll thicken it into “gravy,” put it onto piecrusts and call it potpie. That, he’ll eat.

  5. Jules says:

    I love soup too! The potato carrot soup link took me to a 404 page, FYI.

  6. Nancy says:

    Explain to me what JCrew Mercantile on Amazon is. I thought it was maybe one step “below”…prob.not the correct term, than JCrew Factory…I think I went into a store like this in Indianapolis and it was very similar to a factory store but the prices look more like a regular JCrew store. Thanks.

    I also fell in love with a man who doesn’t like soup!! or spicy food which may be worse for me

  8. Aly says:

    I hear you!! My BF doesn’t like soup either and I just don’t understand…

  9. Anna says:

    My fiance doesn’t like soup either and I don’t get it! Not only is it delicious, it’s generally easy to make both budget and diet-friendly. However, he also can’t cook, so I can see us evolving into a “this is what made, deal with it” relationship in the future lol…

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.
