Can we talk about spring shoes for a minute?  I haven’t upgraded my work shoes in a while, and I could use a couple of pairs for warmer weather.

This pair of 12-Hour Mesh Pumps from Banana Republic are absolutely stunning.  I love the mesh details; they also come in black.  I’m also smitten with these toe-cap slingbacks with a walkable two-inch heel.

Also, if you’re in the market for nude-to-you pumps for spring, BR has you covered.  Their Madison pump, Bare sandal, and Madison slingback come in a wide variety of colors to suit a range of skin-tones.

    My friend shared the HBR article over the weekend – one of the best things I’ve read on women in the workplace in a long time.

    • LA says:

      I shared with a few friends, some who are moms and some who aren’t, and it resonated with all of us. One thing I didn’t see addressed in great detail was what the effect might be if more dads/men were offered AND took those “accommodation” options that are currently utilized by women, like paternity leave and part-time or flexible schedules. I think that could contribute both to evening the playing field and to pushing back against the culture of overwork. We have a long way to go though.

      • Mritz says:

        I’ve always thought the easiest way to have men use the leave is to make it mandatory. Mandatory parental leave policies where each parent is required to take a certain amount. It seems absurd, I know. And most men I know would love to utilize leave that is allowed now, but I don’t think American culture is ready for mass utilization. And I don’t think merely incentivizing paternity leave will work, though it would surely help. I think men will worry, and probably with good reason based on what happens to women, that they’ll be daddy-tracked.

  2. Kate says:

    The HBR piece is so good. It’s very much not the usual narrative about having it all, and I really really appreciated how the authors didn’t just trust people’s accepted narratives about what was happening at their company — narratives that were clearly disproved by the data! I’ve been thinking about it a lot.

    Great edition today. Love that HBR article, and I immediately bought that nordstrom rack blouse.

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.
