The Steele Maiden: Wardrobe Staples - Linen Shirt and High Waisted Jeans

Anyone else feeling at a loss after this week of news? It feels pretty frivolous to talk about shoes when so much of the world seems full of hate right now. But alas – I say we choose to seek the good, beautiful and light-filled parts of the world instead.

  1. If you’re in need of a good (smart) laugh – no one does it better than Tina Fey. Her appearance of on this week’s Weekend Update is one of the best clips of TV I’ve watched in ages. See it here.
  2. I’m in the midst of planning outfits for NYFW (how that’s even possible again I couldn’t tell you) and I think this affordable faux leather mini skirt will be making an appearance.
  3. A really interesting read on the effect that smartphones are having on a younger generation. I’m thankful to have grown up with nothing more than a bare bones flip phone in high school, but it’s a plague I definitely worry about if I end up having kids of my own.
  4. Summer ain’t over til it’s over – plus end of season sales make it a perfect time to pick up swimsuits to save for next year too. I’ve had my eye on this striped one since June.
  5. We’re in the midst of re-decorating our bedroom and I’m always looking for more inspiration from Pinterest – follow along here.
