Monday Morning: November 27, 2023

Nov 27, 2023

This week was a bit of a mess.  Kyle is sick.  I am sick.  We have no reliable childcare, so we’re cobbling together work time where we can.  We missed our Thanksgiving dinner pickup, and had less than two hours to shop for and cook a meal for six people.  But we’re making it work, somehow.

And in between nap schedule, disinfecting every surface (twice), and trying to keep Sloane entertained (God bless, Bluey), I did manage a little bit of window shopping.

Can a puffy winter coat also be pretty?  Canada Goose’s Reformation collab gives you warmth with a side of femininity.  I absolutely love these coats — the patterns, the colors, the fact that most choices are reversible.  They are definitely a splurge, but if you live in a cold climate and you’re tired of basic black, this might be your way to look chic in the chill.

Want to wear sneakers in the winter but sick of cold feet?  These ivory Veja sneakers have a shearling lining to keep your toes warm. They’re also a wonderful option if stark white isn’t for you.  Also, these would be perfect on a plane flight.  My feet always get so cold when I fly.

Over the Moon has a wide variety of pretty things for your closet and your home.  I discovered the retailer after I spotted this painted vase and jug set on Pinterest.  If you’re looking for unique gifts that not everyone is featuring in their guides, check out their selection of presents, mostly from small and medium sized retailers.  I’m so obsessed with this Aerin champagne bucket.  Luckily, I found these vintage ones on Etsy for less.  Love this French one.

Makeup by Mario is not a brand that I’ve tried before, but women are raving about this eyeshadow palette.  Whether you need everyday neutrals or shimmer for evening, it appears to have everything you need.  From friends to influencers, I keep tripping over this palette.  Maybe it’s a sign?

When I lived in D.C., I never once bought a Christmas tree.  The small, apartment sized ones always looked…well, a little sad.  This Balsam Hill tree with crystals, beads and a champagne-colored base is anything but sad.  Whether you need a second tree for another room or something to spruce up your apartment, this is a wonderful option.  Looking for something cheaper?  This Pottery Barn tree with mirrored branches is a little bit more affordable.

    Uff, that’s hard. I hope all of you are on the mend. Like these picks but what I am really interested in learning is how the heck did you put together a Thanksgiving meal in 2 hours??? Would love to get a deeper dive into your process if you want to make a post on that.

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Best Picks from Ann Taylor

One of the questions that is often asked about D.C. fashion is: Why is there so much Ann Taylor? The answer is simple enough — the hemlines are long enough, the styles are easy to wear, almost everything is machine washable, and it’s easy to find pieces for professional offices or casual ones. Plus, there’s […]
