Raines’ birthday was yesterday. He turned NINE. We’re snuggling in bed and he looks over at me. “Mom, I’m getting older, you know.”
I do know this. All too well.
“Sure, buddy.” I tell him. He smirks.
“Pretty soon, Mom, instead of toys, I’m going to want clothes….and that stuff that makes you smell good for my birthday.”
Dear god: he’s talking about cologne.
Post-holiday sales are still going strong. I’ll leave our holiday tab up for another week, so bookmark it now it if you want to be able to refer back for any reason. (And Gwen and I will replace the holiday banners…SOON.)
Amanda, Laura and I have all updated our Editor’s Picks boutiques. Here’s mine, and here’s Amanda’s. We’re both crushing on this tee. My other top pick is Madewell’s cashmere cable knit sweater – I’ll be featuring it on the blog next week. It’s so good (and so drapey) that you can play fast and loose with sizing. (I bought a large.) Laura’s picks are good, too – I especially like this unassuming little top ($20!).
This red, white and blue scarf sold out before I could snap it up at Nordstrom….but Sole Society still has it.
We’re going to be talking more about cropped jeans and socks….but spoiler alert: these socks work the best.
Urban Decay’s New Muse is an 88 year old badass. (Thanks for the find, Jess! This totally will be you someday.)
The best-ever reason to declutter: THREE HOURS of independent play (plus #sanity). This mom’s story is verrry compelling. (Thanks to Cam and Laura for the find.)
They actually made 2016 into a horror movie (it’s funny….and also not funny at the same time)
Gwen to the rescue with something uplifting: “If you’ve yet to see this baby getting her hair washed…and loving every second of it…you’re welcome.”
Last seen on the TME Slack channel…..
More next week on my trip to Breck, our three favorite outfits, cropped jeans and socks, and my latest workout gear obsession. Stay warm!! (Even Dallas is getting snow, wha???)
