I finally bit on Rothy’s.
If you’re not familiar, they are a sustainable shoe brand whose products are made from materials like recycled plastic bottles.
One selling point is that they are machine washable.
While Rothy’s have achieved cult status with some of my friends, I wasn’t tempted enough to dive in until I saw these
limited edition pink gingham loafers.
They also come in red or brown check, but pink gets my heart every time.
While these babies are going to be shelved until snow season is over (i.e., mid-2020 at the earliest), I’m patient.
Are you listening to this?
incredible, and about so much more than Dolly Parton.
Don’t get me wrong:
I love Dolly.

This nine part podcast digs deep, and the first episode centers around feminism and Dolly.
Not giving away much here, but at one point, Dolly was asked point blank if she was a feminist, to which she replied
As someone who often wears a
“Wild Feminist” shirt – among other apparel – I briefly felt like Dolly let me down.

My favorite quote from the episode:
“There are feminists in theory. And there are feminists in practice.”
I can’t wait for the rest.
I’m really digging some of the
natural accent decor pieces available now at Crate and Barrel.
Much of it is easy, light and neutral, which is basically how I want to feel.
hurricane is oversized enough to be a stand-alone centerpiece:
It’s hard to appreciate the scale of this
Here’s a picture for perspective:
It would work on the floor or as a centerpiece.
And then there is
I love the addition of
these stones to it all:
this hoodie from Raw Threads is pretty awesome.
Lately, I haven’t felt like shopping all that much.
I’m still looking, but nothing’s really striking my fancy.
All of these earrings from J. Crew fit the bill of
The lucite and gold ones are my favorite.
These are random things I stumbled upon this weekend, as I alternated between cable news (Ugh) and escapist TV.
Temps were -7 without windchill on Saturday.
These Fabletics leggings feature Powerhold technology (whatever it is, I want it), trendy rose gold and back zippers on the lower leg, which is a feature I love.
They would look great with
this gym bag:
these cozy slipper are sold out in my size:
this cute tee from J. Crew Factory isn’t! It’s called “Party Animals.”
this is a huge splurge. I was lucky enough to get this completely frivolous item for Christmas, and it was perfect – something I loved but even I wouldn’t spring for it.
The scent is nice, the texture is perfect and the container is oddly satisfying to hold in your hand.
What a treat to use.
