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.
