My quest to get better at summer clothes

One of my style goals this year is to embrace summer clothes. I feel like I hear from plenty of friends who agree with me that fall dressing is best–the layers make it easy to feel fashionable! But summer? It’s hard to get more creative than a tank top and shorts when it’s 100 degrees out. And yet, I now live somewhere where summer stays for 5 months of the year. So let’s think of warmer temperatures today and do some virtual shopping together!

Easy, comfortable outfits for going back to the office

Fall 2021 might be a rude awakening for many of us, if enough people get vaccinated and we are suddenly summoned back from work from home to our offices. I already have a timeline for this–August 2021–and while I will miss some parts of my home office, I am a little excited to put on office outfits again. At the same time, my tolerance for structured pants (and bras with underwire!) is incredibly low at the moment, so I thought I would put together some easy, comfortable work outfits to ease the transition back to in-person work!

This blog post is actually me styling straight leg jeans as a skinny jeans loving millennial because I have several pairs and am still getting used to them.

So today I’m reflecting on incorporating new trends while also staying true to what I like.

Screen tees that aren’t embarrassing

Oh the screen tee. I have pinned dozens of them. I want to look edgy-chic and pair one with a blazer for the office. I want to look effortless with cut offs and sneakers on the weekends. And YET. My friends. Why are there so many t shirts with strange sayings on them? Why do I have such a complex about what those words are? Here is a round up of screen tees that I would not be embarrassed to wear. The list is small!

Thinx Sleep Shorts Review: Do they work?

Thinx sleep shorts

Hello friends! This post is slightly overdue because I’ve been using the new Thinx sleep shorts for about 2 months now. These are period sleep shorts and they’re meant to replace the need to use tampons or pads overnight. When I first saw this idea I thought GENIUS. But I also had some questions, namely, do they work, what’s the absorbency, are they comfortable, and do they feel wet. So here are my thoughts, plus a little promo code for $10 off!
