This has been one of those weeks that has felt both extremely long, and yet somehow flown by at the same time. Honestly, it’s kind of felt like that this whole month – I’m so looking forward to May, and spring weather, but cannot believe that April is over already? But here we are! I have a very low-key weekend ahead of me, but I’m not complaining. On to the favorites!
My crewneck from the Addison Bay x Grace Atwood collection arrived SO quickly, and I’m in love! It’s so soft and cozy without being too heavy or hot, and the just-past-the-elbow sleeves are so perfect for this time of year. I immediately added it to my rotation of favorite loungewear that still looks cute on a Zoom call!
I love Reneé Rapp – I first heard her from her time in Mean Girls on Broadway, but was really blown away when she wrote and released her own music. This interview is just so good – I love how candidly and openly she shares about the good and bad, and about her ambition, too. She’s not shy about saying what she wants and is working towards, and I want more of that. Ambition isn’t something to be ashamed of! Definitely read the interview, and then listen to her music if you haven’t yet.
I am really loving straw bags for spring and summer – it makes me feel like I’m on vacation a little bit every time I use one! Target has some really cute options – I especially love this one, with the faux leather closure and adjustable crossbody strap in this fun dome shape.
I really love how Mattel has diversified their Barbies so much lately. We recently unearthed an old family video on a Christmas morning from years past when my sister unwrapped the first Wheelchair Barbie (technically, Wheelchair Becky), and the excitement was SO real. It’s so important to be able to see and play with dolls that look like you – and for other people to see them, too! So I’m really glad to see a Barbie with Down Syndrome added to the Fashionista line.
