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.

The workout tank I own in 5 colors is now $20

Hi friends. I don’t think I’ve ever posted about a single item before, but I own this cami with a built-in bra in 5 colors because it’s seriously that good. I wear it for pretty much all my weight lifting, yoga, and hiking. When all 5 of them are in the wash, I get cranky, so yes, I did just go back for more colors.

The Perform Cami Atlantic – Everlane

I own both the cami and tank versions. I would say they’re true to your typical women’s t-shirt size–I wear a size M and find them perfect (even with a 34F bust). When in doubt I would pick the smaller of 2 sizes (I have one tank in a size L and it’s loose in the straps). They’re cropped to the belly button on me (so possibly a bit longer if you’re not tall).

Consider this your PSA if you need some new workout gear 🙂

Professional Bags for Graduate School: 2022 edition

I have never met a purse, or tote, or backpack I didn’t like, so when people ask me “what kind of bag should I carry as a grad student?” I tend to have Opinions. Picking the right bag in grad school can also feel a little stressful: you carry a lot of books and snacks. You don’t want to be mistaken for a student (I remember so distinctly wondering if grad students wear backpacks??). And you need a bag that is high quality enough to survive multiple years of wear and tear but still affordable. Here are some options if you’re looking for a teaching or school bag this year!

So here are a few items I would suggest and where I would shop for them if you are going on a professor job interview!

Holiday outfits that aren’t sparkly

Every year I struggle with holiday dressing on my own terms and for the holiday things I actually do (less large parties, more Law & Order marathons and hiking). Here are my holiday outfits this year, if you are also looking for some sequin-less styles.
