DIARY

Five Things I Learned From Francesca This Weekend

Totally casual magazine-reading outfit (dress by Cleobella)

On Friday afternoon, I arrived at Francesca's house for a little kid-free staycation only to find her triumphantly reducing some apricots to make a pork chop sauce. "I just invented this dish!" she declared. "It's SO DELICIOUS!"

We exclaimed over and over about the particular combination of flavors - how unexpected! how delightful! - and snapped a couple of pics, because clearly I would need to post about this unexpectedly delightful new dish.

Best Zara Picks, According To Me: Spring 2019 Edition

I did not buy this skirt. That was a mistake. (Fixing it.)

For the past few months, I've been pretty good about keeping my shopping at a minimum thanks to my Rent the Runway Unlimited subscription: Every time I'm in a store and think "Ooh! I want to buy this!" I remember that the little high that you get from a new clothing purchase is a) temporary, and b) something I can get via RTR.

Except I just cancelled my subscription, and here's why: In the wintertime, it made sense to me because winter clothing is more expensive, more fussy, and more situation-specific (holiday parties and what have you). In the summer, I default to a uniform of Whatever Is Lightweight And Comfortable, and I simply can't imagine wanting to rent, like, a structured blouse or designer dress. I just don't care enough.

Sweaters & Things

Vince sweater (via TJ Maxx); Hozen bag; Zara sparkle pants (similar).

The point of this post is to answer a reader question that is very close to my heart, because it is about sweaters. But the secondary point of this post is to answer another reader's question, about Rent the Runway Unlimited.

Just so you have a sense of what you're getting into here.

I Got Dressed Three Times Yesterday

This is not one of the times.

Well, technically speaking, I got dressed seven times yesterday. (I KNOW. And only one of them involved pajamas!) But the pictures here commemorate my favorite times.

I spent eight hours yesterday shooting a video for Tiny Tags that focuses on...divorce, actually. It was an emotional day, and I definitely cried, and the video will speak for itself when it comes out - so instead of talking about feelings this morning, I'm going to talk about clothing.

The Preschool Dropoff Uniform

 

PJs | Glasses

Here is a nice thing about having moved from Northern California to Southern: When you live in San Jose and roll into preschool drop-off looking like you just stepped straight out of Grey Gardens, people tend to look at you a little funny. In San Jose, I was definitely “the mom who wore pajamas and sunglasses the size of her head even in the rain.”
