Things I am loving #1

My favorite post on the blogs of others is the occasional time they list of favorite things. I love finding new books, classes or a even just a cool sweater from someone’s recommendation. But I’ve been a taker and not a giver. So today that will change. I thought I’d share a few things I’m digging recently.

APL Sneakers

I was overdue for a pair of sneakers. I haven’t purchased a pair of non-running sneakers in, I don’t know, 5 years? And I am obsessed with these. I barely take them off. I wear them for non-running workouts and just, in general, all of the time.


Narcos tells the story of Pablo Escobar, the infamous ring leader of the Medellin drug cartel. Please go down the rabbit hole and watch this series. Season 2 is even better than Season 1.

She just gets me, life, womanhood.


everlane cashmere sweater dress

I bought this just as temperatures started to dip. By the time it arrived this October heatwave had come to town, but I can’t wait to wear this deliciously soft dress once it’s no longer 75 degrees out. I also bought those Oxfords the model is wearing in the Cognac color.  I had them shipped using one-hour delivery on Everlane, and while it took a little longer than an hour, it was pretty cool when someone just walked in and handed me a pair of shoes.

  • This piece that’s been floating around by a former Lucky mag editor on her divorce and beautiful BK brownstone. Highlighted quote, “You are either the type of person who just wakes up knowing that vases look nice in a cluster, or you are the type whose boldest design statement is by default the recycling pile.”


  • The customer service at Minted.

I had a few wedding-related things made at Minted and their customer service is the best I’ve ever experienced. You can go back and forth with a designer creating your perfectly designed stationary or menu at no-cost to you. They messed my first order when it was printed. The colors were washed out. They rush ordered a new print for me at no cost and it arrived days before they said it would.

What are you loving these days?

      Awesome? What are you liking these days? The Gist (on Slate) is my fav.
