I’m pretty excited about this one: new on Cup of Jo A Week of Outfits featuring ethical brands! Melissa Lee’s style is envy-worthy and, even better, I love when she talks about how slow-fashion translates to slow-purchasing. A strategy to live by!
I signed up for Parcel after reading about it in the above link. Seems like a great way to stay organized and on-budget!

The Disease of Being Busy – how are you combating this in your own life?
If cars were suits, I am wearing an off-the-rack from Macy’s in a sea of custom-made and couture. This recent post by (my fav!) Joshua Becker extols the ‘Joys of Living Within Your Means’ and left me feeling very encouraged.
In a few weeks I’m embarking on a 30 Day/30 Items/No Shop challenge! (This includes gifted items.) I am very excited to pair down my closet for the month of June, and see what rises to the top as I work on defining my summer style. Furthermore, I am excited to take a step back from shopping and online browsing. Who wants to join me? ;)
This time last year I debuted my favorite Lou Jumpsuit, which has been an influential piece in my wardrobe. It’s given me the confidence to embrace dressing in a way I love, even if it’s different than most people.
And finally, happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mums out there! This beautiful piece in the NYT explores the idea of mom before she was your mom, and dares to convey our moms as we never saw them, wrestling with the concept of identity and motherhood.
