Weekend Reads

Hiya friends, happy weekend. It’s been a whirlwind of a week but we’re reeling with excitement over here to share a fun new project with you! We’ve been putting our Spring capsule wardrobes together, and you can pop your email address into that little box at the bottom of this page to get a first look.

On the fashion front: our first article today is all about the power of buying less but better. There’s a growing movement of retailers offering ethical alternatives to fast fashion, which are also high-quality, affordable and made sustainably. With brands like Everlane, Cuyana and The 30 Year Sweatshirt leading the charge, younger consumers (ahem) have the power to create real change through a shift in shopping habits.

For those of us who have been cursed blessed with a tiny kitchen at one point or another: did it make you a better cook? I can’t be certain that the absence of a toaster (and substituting with the oven) or a microwave parked around the corner in the living room elevated my culinary skills but, I did learn how to make pasta without a pasta machine.

Speaking of kitchens, a cluttered one can seriously influence our eating habits. This new study explores the correlation between a messy space and food intake, and it has a lot to do with our mindset. De-cluttering FTW.

Stephen Fry on why he’s signing out of Twitter for good (and one aptly-titled blog post): Too many people have peed in the pool.

And finally, a refreshingly honest perspective, and an idea I’ve been pondering a lot lately: having it all kinda sucks.

Okay that’s about it. Enjoy that spring-ish weather out there! Oh, and don’t forget to sign up for our free Spring style guide if that’s something you’d dig. We’ll shoot it over as soon as it’s ready.
