Entireworld recycled cotton tee (gift from Entireworld) | large
Elizabeth Suzann Florence linen pants (secondhand) | size medium, regular
Teva flatform sandals
Baggu ripstop tote
I have salad dressing on these pants. I got off the Peloton an hour ago and my face is STILL red. I’m having a migraine.
Happy Wednesday 🙂
I rode with Robin Arzon this morning (I prefer her explicit hip-hop rides – what can I say??) and she is hard as FUCK. But the whole ride, she’s reminding us of the opportunities available to us every time we get on the bike. To be better than yesterday. To push harder. And that we are always worth the effort.
I am so thankful to be here, now, and to be doing what I’m doing.
But can I talk about my outfit?
I swear these Florence pants are shorter than my new black ones. And I like this length better; they’re both “regular” length. But I may just wait until next spring/summer to get the black ones hemmed. Keeping them longer might extend my ability to wear them into cooler weather?
Speaking of ES, did anyone get an ES x AC piece? I did not get an email that the Marlena dress in black was available (although I was on the wait list) and it’s already sold out, so…I ordered it in Plum. Since I’m trying to avoid buying new black…
And I got this Baggu bag on a whim when I placed my last order for more reusable bags and a dopp kit. I love it, but mostly because I can’t get enough of this dusty rose color. It’s a good bag for traveling, just to keep in your suitcase to have in case you need another bag to bring home souvenirs or whatever, but is pretty flimsy for carrying around much everyday.
How are you doing?
Thanks for the reminder for the ESxAC collab! I hadn’t signed up to be notified but I managed to snag the Louise funnel neck long sleeve in Plum – what a beautiful color. It will go perfectly under my hand-knit fair isle vest that I’m working on! I’m also still waiting on my Harper tunic I ordered about 6 weeks ago and I think it will layer beautifully under that when it’s cold as well.
I also didn’t get an alert about the black Marlena dress restock and was really bummed! Makes me wonder if they had an issue with that particular alert.
I’m tempted to get it in the white but always worry about white. Gah!

Oh I was tempted by the white also but chickened out lol. I can do white/light pants though so I’m not sure why??
I did get a notice for a couple of the ES X AC collab items, but passed, partly because I’m on a spending diet this month. That, however, doesn’t mean I haven’t bought anything…I just ordered a Black Crane linen cocoon dress in charcoal polka dots–I loved their white with black polka dot fabric this season and missed out on the dress in that color.
Otherwise, I don’t know if it is the crazy astrological stuff going on and / or menopause, but I have been on an emotional roller coaster! I also managed to injure myself doing PureBarre (maybe 17 classes in the first 30 days was too much for me, since I’d been doing nothing prior to that? ha ha ha) and haven’t been going. I sadly think I might have to find something else for exercise. 🙁
Anyway, I think I am going to pull the trigger on a personal retreat to a wonderful yoga / meditation center in western Massachusetts for the end of the month. I went to college nearby, and this month it’s actually been 30 (!?!?) years since I enrolled, so it seemed like a nice coincidence to go back.
Grechen Reiter says
Oh! How did you Injure yourself?? I do find if I push myself too hard too many days in a row I am really sore and take longer to recover. I’m working through something with my elbow right now…
I hope you don’t have to stop completely!!
I would love to do a retreat sometime. I should add that to my list of things I want to spend money on.
Love those lightweight pants!
I also ordered the Marlena dress in plum! Anxiously awaiting…
