The Edition: No. 73

Feb 8, 2019

“I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.” — Mark Twain.

Apathetic. Why you should learn to care less at work.

Forwarded. This $48 black-and-white midi-dress has me thinking all the spring thoughts.

Outlast. A survival guide to being a woman on the Internet.

Colored Up. Loving this pale-lilac blazer for spring, and this affordable raspberry blazer.

Learning. The 15 best questions to ask in an informational interview.

Blushed. Pale pink bags are everywhere. I love this $35 wallet, this $85 3-compartment shoulder bag, and this $80 modern tote with a unique shape.

Coverage. Meet the women covering CNN’s White House beat.

Heeled. Need comfy heels? These Cole Haan kittens and these navy suede Cole Haans.

Restful. Improve your weekends; stop scheduling your free time.

Emboldened. This one-shoulder red blouse is the ultimate going-out top.

Disappeared. Whatever happened to former Trump aide Hope Hicks?

Fluttered. This ruffle sleeve blouse and swingy long-sleeve dress from Factory are fab.

Powerful. Just click on this, I swear you need it. Very inspiring.

This week, all of the photos accompanying the posts were of storms.  Growing up in Montana, it was incredible how fast the weather could change on the windward side of the mountains.  And sometimes, things shift.

It has been a difficult and tumultuous 10-days.  Highs and lows have both been extreme.  But the important thing to remember about storms is, no matter how violent they seem in the moment, they’re always temporary.  You just have to ride it out.

    Are you reading my mind? My last 10 days have been pretty stormy.

    Hi Belle,

    The links to the Cole Haan pumps lead to the same one, the Suede Vesta pump. Just letting you know.

  3. Kim says:

    OMG the quotes from The Powerful Mind. I need to memorize them all.

  4. Jo says:

    Somewhat related to the first link about work stress – this rang true for me: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/07/opinion/sunday/girls-school-confidence.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage Learning what is sufficient (and when perfection is unnecessary) is an underrated skill imo.

  5. Pam says:

    Wow – great reads, thanks for sharing (great shoes too). Loved the one about work. I have a co-worker who has told me I need to care less (I’m one of those Virgos the article refers to). And the quotes/words of wisdom…. so much to think about!!

  6. Heather says:

    A good friend of mine once shared with me “impermanence is a gift.” Things never stay the same way forever.

  7. Sam says:

    Those quotes hit me in just the way I needed. Thanks for sharing them!

    Loved the powerful article! Thanks!

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 […]
