Happy Friday! I have a pretty low-key weekend planned – going out to dinner to celebrate my dad’s birthday at our of our favorite restaurants, Senti, but other than that I don’t have any real plans. I have some work to do this weekend so I’m trying to keep my schedule pretty clear. And hoping that I can do my work outside and enjoy this stretch of beautiful weather, too.
On to this week’s favorites!
I’m SO excited – today, I’m taking over Elizabeth Holmes’ Instagram in honor of Disability Pride Month! Make sure you follow along – I’ll be sharing things all day in her stories.
Becca Meyers Drops Out Of Paralympics
This whole situation has made me SO upset this week. Becca Meyers is a gold medalist Paralympian who decided to drop out earlier this week because she wasn’t allowed to bring her mother with her as a personal care attendant (PCA). They’re claiming that because they’re providing one PCA for all of the Paralympians, Becca’s PCA is not essential (though caddies for golfers and grooms for horses ARE essential). It’s so absurd and insulting, and absolutely unacceptable. I’m so heartbroken and angry for her.
Everlane has an amazing summer sale going on right now! They have some really great basics at really incredible prices. This tiered dress is perfect for right now, and you can never go wrong with their cashmere!
#DisabledGirlSummer at the Pitt Diversity Forum
Just a reminder that my presentation – #DisabledGirlSummer is on Wednesday at 2 PM as part of Pitt’s Diversity Forum! I’d love to (virtually) see you there. It’s free – you just have to register here.
J.Crew is having a summer sale this week, too – they’re doing an extra 60% off certain items with the code SALEONSALE. I love the blue and the eyelet detailing of this great swingy top!
