I wore these ES pants a few times this week, but after 3-4 wears I need to wash them to get them back “into shape.” They probably also need a little freshening up too, but mostly they start to look quite saggy in the back after so many wears.
And if you didn’t see in my post earlier this week, I ordered the silk Andy trousers in size medium, regular length with the gift provided by Elizabeth Suzann. I’m really excited about those. I also have the Linen florence pants in black on order, they should be shipping soon, but I’m conflicted about whether I’ll keep those.
I did also place an order from James Perse yesterday for the denim jacket (size 1) and the cotton textured workwear pant (size 27). They should arrive early next week so I’ll have a review for you as soon as I can get it up!
Finally, I mentioned that I ordered a smaller size of Girlfriend Collective leggings recently, but haven’t said much about them. They are really great and I highly recommend them. I had a medium pair of the high-rise regular length leggings and wore them once a week for about a year or more and they held up nicely. They started to fade a bit at the knees, but otherwise looked and performed as good as new, except they became too big for me. The size small, 3/4 length high-rise leggings are a wonderful fit on me, and full-length, which I love. I’d love to branch out to other colors, but I’m too chicken LOL. If you haven’t tried Girlfriend Collective leggings yet, I really recommend you do 🙂
REALLY REALLY REALLY loving the Overstory although I only get a chance to read at length on weekend mornings. It’s about trees, very generally, but our relationship with nature also. I didn’t know what to expect from it, but so far (I’m only about 20% in) it’s been very interesting and engaging.
I’ve been trying to listen to more podcasts lately instead of just NPR all the time. I already listen consistently to Sam Harris and Forever35, but I’ve also added in What Should I Read Next and listened to one episode of that, which prompted me to add a ton of books to my reading lists. I have Everything Happens in my library now and want to try that after recommendations from a few of you. I also listen to Tim Ferriss and Secular Buddhism when I remember. And James Altucher.
Oh, and I recently listened to the Heaven’s Gate podcast. Fascinating.
Who has other podcast suggestions?
And here’s the thing: I’ve been thinking of starting one myself. Ha, as if I need another thing to do. But it wouldn’t be related to fashion or style or shopping; I would love to talk with other women about navigating through middle age without children. We’ll see. Just a thought.
I will be working a lot this weekend and next week to clear out clearance items at Slowre and mark down a lot for sale (if you’re interested in anything in the clearance section now’s the time to buy, they will all be taken down this weekend/early next week). I’ll have new arrivals up on MONDAY next week since Wednesday is a holiday, and that will be it for new arrivals for two weeks since we’re going on vacation starting July 8th. yay!! vacation 🙂 I’m sooooo ready.
I hope you had a wonderful week and a relaxing/fulfilling weekend ahead 🙂
