Today I’m reviewing a laid-back dress that’s perfect for weekend wear or vacation: the Everlane Cotton Tank Dress.
My order from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale arrived, so here’s a quick update from my first post. It’s easy to get carried away with all the sale hype, but I am getting better at resisting!
I’ve been skeptical of wide leg pants on petites. I always doubted I could pull off the look. As a skinny jeans devotee, the farthest I’ve strayed is an occasional pair of joggers. But sometimes, you don’t want your legs encased in close-fitting pants, especially in the summer. Wide legs convey effortless elegance and I wanted to look that way too. Could I wear them even though I’m not willowy and tall?
It’s that time of the year for the hugely popular Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The Anniversary Sale always tests my resolve to cut back on shopping because, well, sale! And it’s a decent sale too, with things usually marked down to a third off.
Today I’m reviewing two bras from Lively in my ongoing search for the perfect bra. Lively launched in 2016, founded by a former Victoria’s Secret employee. Like other startup brands, it doesn’t have a physical store and does all its business online.
My recent vacation plans spurred a search for cotton linen pants. I have to confess that I’m not a fan of linen. It wrinkles easily and I detest ironing. Living in a moderate climate, I have no use for it. But I worry about what to wear in warmer climates, and linen is known for keeping you cool. OK, fine. I guess I’ll try linen.
When it comes to packing a suitcase, I try to keep it light. I often struggle between my desire to keep things to a minimum and the what-if-I-need-this mindset. But more often than not, I’ve found, you don’t need that thing. When in doubt, leave it at home. I thought I’d share the contents of my carry-on suitcase from a recent trip to Mexico City in case it’s helpful for anyone else trying to travel light.
Woot! Everlane’s Choose What You Pay sale is back. Like many things Everlane, their sales are not conventional. However, you can’t just pay “what you want, what you really, really want.” (This is perhaps my first time ever quoting the Spice Girls.)
Uniqlo’s latest T-shirt collection is called Supergeometric and features designs by two artists: French abstract artist Francois Morellet and Finnish artist Niko Luoma. I fell in love with this design by Niko Luoma.
It’s summer, which means that you might want to stock up on some racerback bras for cute shoulder-baring tops.
