ADAY is making office athleisure so naturally, I had to try it

ADAY Turn it Up Pants in olive and Something Borrowed Shirt in midnight

Sporty business casual clothes are kind of my jam–I love anything that is sweatproof, wrinkle-proof, and includes an elastic waistband because as a teacher, I basically need clothes to be all of those things. So it was only a matter of time before I got curious about ADAY, which makes sustainable office clothes that are sneakily actually comfy enough for travel and weekends. Here, I review the Turn it Up Pants and Something Borrowed Shirt.

Allbirds Tree Dashers Review + get free socks!

I’ve been testing Allbirds Tree Dashers–the Allbirds version of a running shoe–for the past week. They’ve been through cross training, dance class, and light hiking in that time so I thought I would let you know how they fit and feel–especially if you, like me, have narrow feet. My main questions were about sizing and whether to size up or down and about tread and arch support. Plus, I have a deal from Allbirds for free socks with purchase, if you want!

My mega Third Love review: Everything I’ve ever tried

Is anyone else headed back to the office and suddenly finding their bra collection inadequate? If you’re like me, you get barraged with nothing but bra ads any time you’re on social media. It’s hard to judge how good any of those instagram ad bras are, so today I’m reviewing Third Love bras and answering some questions about quality, if they stretch out, and comfort level! I review the classic t-shirt bra, the bras I actually like MORE than those (spoilers: pima cotton) and their everyday cotton and comfort stretch underwear.

Tradlands reviews and tips for shopping the sample sale

Today I’m reviewing the 4 Tradlands items I own: The short sleeve box top, box tee, shelter cardigan, and glenn long short. 2 of these items I bought on sale during the Tradlands sample sale, so I thought I would also share some tips for shopping the sample sale and getting what you want before it sells out! 2022’s sample sale starts on February 2nd so let’s talk about how to make sure you get the items on your wishlist.

Comfortable women’s shoes for work and walking, aka shoes that will not betray you at conferences

Comfortable women’s dress shoes are so hard to find, especially if you need to be on your feet all day at a work, for travel, or at a conference. Seriously, why are office shoes so terrible?? I’ve run through boxes of bandaids trying to avoid blisters in the past and am now committed on 3-4 pairs of shoes that will never betray me at work. Here they are.

Everlane Perform Leggings, Bike Shorts, and Tank Review

I’ve owned the Everlane leggings and bike shorts for 6+ months so I thought a review was long overdue! Before I got them, I had some questions about the quality, if they would be squat proof, and if they would stay up. I also wondered how the Perform line compared to Outdoor Voices and Athleta–my two other favorite leggings brands. Finally, I got intrigued all over again and decided to try their new pocket leggings (with no center seam!!). So here are answers to all those questions if you have them, too!

Fortress of Inca Boots Review

Last year I made a round up of ethical and sustainable fashion brands that make tall sizes. And there was a glaring issue with the list: no size 11 and 12 (and beyond!) shoes. I have been on the hunt ever since and am so happy to find Fortress of Inca. They make a wide range of classic styles (boots, mules, flats) and are committed to fair trade practices. AND, they’re launching size 11 shoes this month! So here’s a review of their Elise ankle boots and a hint about what styles are about to be in the extended range!

Boody Wear Review: Sustainable Activewear and Underwear

Boody wear leggings and activewear review

I have been trying the Boody padded shaper bra and underwear for a few months, and now have had the chance to try their new leggings and activewear. Everything by Boody is made with bamboo–a sustainable material–and it’s all been really well suited to my stay at home life in 2020. Here is my review and thoughts on sizing, comfort, and how the new activewear survived my workout test.

Brass summer try-ons

It’s probably not a secret at this point that Brass makes my favorite ethical workwear and business casual clothing. With many items under $100, they’re also one of the better priced ethical fashion companies if you’re new to trying to buy from better brands. I’ve reviewed a bunch of Brass before and am back because most of my summer buys have come from them this year, too! Here are reviews and try ons of the drift knit, all day shorts, high neck shell, and all day culottes.
