Too Many Tabs: March 8, 2024

Mar 8, 2024

For several years, the usual Friday post was the Happy Hour — a post featuring a cocktail for the end of the work week and an outfit to wear for the occasion. But in recent months, as I’ve stopped drinking weekly, writing that feature lost its luster. So I started thinking about a new feature to take its place, to cap off the week.

Meet Too Many Tabs: a collection of everything I spotted, saved and screenshotted. A place for my Instagram saves, my screenshotted photos, my Pinterest likes, and the other social media clutter that caught my eye. Here’s the first episode.

If you have a walk-in closet or a cramped reach in, I love this idea for storing denim with hooks on a curtain rod.  The Renegade Home explains how to set it up, and shows you some other items that can be stored this way to save space.  I’m going to try this in Sloane’s room for her coats, so I picked up these shower curtain hooks and this French curtain rod.

I immediately saved this nail polish design to Pinterest.  I think it’s a great choice if you want something different.  Multi-color French tips are also a fun idea.  The yellow is a bit too bold for me, however, in a candy apple red, like Chanel Incendiare, or a bright orchid like, OPI Thistle Make You Bloom, it could be a very fun look for spring.

I’m on the hunt for easier recipes, now that Kyle and I have agreed to share cooking duties.  This Lemongrass Chicken with Zucchini looks like a great option.  I’d probably throw in another veggie (yellow pepper or carrots, most likely), but we’ll definitely be making this next week.

The Facebook Gods fed me this Anthropologie cardigan, and I thanked them by immediately purchasing it (as one does).  I just adored the crochet sleeve and the covered button detail.  This would be perfect over a silk cami for a dinner date or with a white, wide strap tank and kick flare jeans for work.

This lovely photo comes from my friend Meghan’s Instagram.  I adore the idea of using vintage ashtrays for jewelry storage or corralling other small items.  The best place to find them is probably Etsy.  If you’re first or last name starts with P, this peacock teal one has your initial on it.

This Real Simple article on the best sleep positions for your sleep issues has been circulated widely among my friends.  Apparently, your 40s are the time when you stop sleeping because you can no longer get comfortable.

Long time readers of this blog will remember the Faux Pas feature that I wrote in my snarkier days.  These shorts from Free People would certainly have qualified.  Luckily, the commenters on Free People’s Instagram post brought all of the snark one could ever need to describe this garment that I hasten to call shorts.  They look like Levi Strauss decided to make lingerie for San Fransisco’s brothel workers instead of pants for its miners.

See you next week!

    Belle, have you ever tried the wide-strap tank from Jockey? I picked one up on sale (when buying your recommended bra) and have bought five more since then. Perfect weight, long enough to layer, thick enough the white version isn’t see-through! I’ve washed some of them 5+ times and still no holes!

    Those Free People shorts are spectacular.

    They look like swimsuit bottoms, if you wanted the soggiest swimsuit bottoms imaginable.

  3. Jules says:

    The comment section for the ‘janties’ did NOT disappoint!🤣

  4. Pam says:

    Great idea! Love the pivot, thanks for evolving with us.

  5. Mags says:

    I love the new feature! Speaks to me much more than a weekly cocktail rec, as I stopped drinking 7 years ago (my daughter is 6, coincidence? 🤔 😆)

  6. Kimberly Jeffries Leonard says:

    Love this idea! Looking forward to reading more.

  7. Rachel says:

    Oh my gosh, the comments on the Free People jundies had me cackling. My favorite: “What are these… shorts for ants?!!”

    Great pivot for your Friday post! I will still always appreciate a good mocktail (or even cocktail) recommendation from you if you come across any.

  8. Shanghai says:

    Love the post idea!

  9. Jenn S. says:

    I love the hook idea for the jeans. My home was built in 1925 and has these pointlessly shallow closets; I took the doors off because they cannot accommodate normal hangers. This offers a great solution for my space that is a HELL of a lot cheaper than a reno.

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.
