I read an article about layering for men earlier in the week, and I’ve been mulling over the first piece of advice listed: every item should work as a stand alone. Reading it lead to an ‘ah-ha’ moment for me, and it’s led to a few simpler choices when getting dressed this week.
Sotela creator Hanna Baror-Padilla completed the Winter 10×10 Closet Challenge, and in the process showed off many beautiful pieces from her new line! I absolutely love her looks, especially #3 and the first ‘bonus’ look.
It’s interesting to read that the Manrepeller herself struggles with Instagram addiction. After a very brief hiatus she has some surprisingly poignant lessons. Most noteworthy: when she talked about engaging in the app ‘from a place of lack.’
IN THE KITCHEN:
I made this soup for dinner yesterday. I know I’ve shared it on here before, but it’s worth a re-share. It’s tasty, healthy and easy. I usually serve it with a slice of toasted sourdough bread.
On Wednesday night we had this freekeh dish for dinner. It’s the kind of meal that almost has me convinced I can be a vegetarian.
A big hearty thank you to all the folks who filled out my 2018 reader survey! It sounds like a lot of you are interested in content outside of style/fashion, with ‘slow living’ being the top choice. I am super interested in slow-living too, probably because it’s something that doesn’t come easy to me, but is very worth pursuing. You guys gave me lots of great feedback and things to think about. Excited to be mindful of it with future content for the blog.
