These pants. I wear them every day. I have a hard time with James Perse pants, generally, because they always end up being too big on me at the waist and butt area, and can look quite sloppy. I gave my last pair to my sister because they were falling off me. But now that I’m pregnant it’s a WHOLE different story LOL. I think these make the best maternity pants you could ask for; I sort of want to wear nothing else. 11 weeks!!
I did place an order from the James Perse sale yesterday, for the long dress and a high gauge tee. I decided not to order the sweatpants in favor of the dress because I always love having a long ribbed cotton dress and I think it will be super-easy to wear as I get bigger. And I cannot resist any of the high gauge pieces, they are that good. Did anyone order anything yet?
Oh, and we got a new mattress/bed this week! We had been sleeping on an ikea tempurpedic knock-off for 9 years on a bed with a broken frame, so it was basically the mattress on the floor, which I couldn’t take anymore. We got a Saatva (organic cotton/sustainable) king size mattress and foundation, and a frame from them as well. I find it very comfortable – the luxury firm mattress is the perfect amount of firmness. It’s quite high up though, especially compared to sleeping on the floor basically, which I don’t mind so much, but poor Dagny has a hard time getting up! I put a stool at the foot of the bed to help her a bit, but she doesn’t use it. She just sits there and whines for a minute, then she takes a running jump and barely makes it LOL.
Now, if I could only sleep through the night. I know, I know…get used to it. I know I have many many sleepless nights ahead, but just for now, I’d like to be able to stay asleep.
I read Bad Blood about Theranos and could not put this book down; I finished it in a few days. Mostly because I was consistently stunned that Elizabeth Holmes was able to get away with all she did, for as long as she did. Of course hindsight is 20/20 and it was a different time when she started the company, but still. The writing was excellent too – it moved quickly and was very engaging.
Now I’m catching up on all the Tana French books I haven’t read.
I watched Private Life – which was very good (love the actors so much), but I also felt like it was missing something. I can’t even begin to imagine how devastating it must be to want a child so badly and it not work for you no matter how hard you try; that’s not my story. But I do wish they had explored the idea of continuing their lives without children, and would that be so bad? That is STILL something that is unfortunately taboo to talk about. haha… seems like everything I watch lately is “lacking” somehow…
I am getting SO MUCH excellent consignment in for slowre lately! I’m really excited to get it all up. If you happen to be tidying up this weekend, I’d be happy to look at whatever isn’t sparking joy for you anymore 😉
I need to do some tidying myself this weekend. Not so much getting rid of things as organizing them better. It’s going to be super-cold this weekend, so maybe a good time to stay in my closet?
What are your plans?
