The beginning is always today. // Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

+ Learning to talk less and listen more.

+ A throw-on Friday dress that never looks wrinkled.

+ Is bringing your whole self to work a trap?

+ I sorted for 2-3″ heels for work, and found these slingbacks.

+ The 12 that signs your jeans don’t fit quite right.

+ Wedding Attire. A dotted dress + criss-cross sandals + a straw clutch

+ How to build ‘social capital’ when you work remotely.

+ The $20 jersey maxi-dress is restocked for summer weekends.

+ Millennial (myself included) are starting to feel old.

+ Express has great swimwear. I love this printed one-piece.

+ The difference between mineral and chemical sunscreen.

+ Speaking of, I obsessed with this SPF-wrinkle reducing hand lotion.

+ Micro-aggressions can be combated with ‘micro-validations.’

+ Madewell must haves: these ‘fancy’ shorts and hexagon huggies.

+ Dealing with ‘tech neck.’ (Here’s the serum-roller I use.)

+ Plus Wedding Attire. A breezy wrap dress + a comfy sandal +a mesh clutch

+ How to tell if someone really does not want to do you that favor.

+ This geometric print shirtdress is great for work or weekend.

One Helpful Thing. Need a girls trip (or a solo trip) that won’t break the bank?  These ideas are all stellar.  I highly recommend Montreal.  This spa in particular.

It’s amazing how true this post from @kiltecollection is.
