We all hit points in the year when our work wardrobe is less than exciting and needs a refresh. That’s why I was excited to share this post reminding us all that matching sets exist and, apart from being quite fun, they’re way more functional than you think. Before you assume that something posted in March has sailed on into sold out territory, you can still shop this set as well as the roundup of similar items I’ve included at the bottom of the post here. Classic style’s new tagline should be “always in style, always in stock.” I expect copywriting royalties, thanks.
I know in the fashion space heels tend to take center stage, but when it comes to the footwear you reach for day-in and day-out, flats are often where it’s at. Personally, I’m of the opinion that your most-loved and most-worn items should be top notch in terms of quality and comfort, so I went to work testing the universe of flats and coming up with a shortlist of the best pairs on the planet (literally). Reminisce, explore, and shop the perfect pair of flats to live in this fall. I certainly am.
Maybe I should have run this closer to Halloween because is there anything scarier than a product you love being discontinued? Not to promote total hoarding, but I had so much fun rounding up this list of coveted items both you and I cannot live or put on makeup without. There are classics (hellooooo, Elnett), modern moments (Boy Brow), and the post itself is essentially a time capsule of all the beauty products the people of the future will see when they study us thousands of years from now. P.S. I hope they’re still making Nars Powermatte then, too.
We’ve explored new territory together this year, you and I. When we’re talking workwear, a baby-to-be calls for a major closet renegotiation. It’s been very fun having you all with me on this pregnancy journey, though I am thoroughly looking forward to having a waistline again and tying my wrap dresses where the knot actually belongs once more. Nevertheless, professional, comfortable, and dare I say chic maternity workwear isn’t impossible find. In this post, I break down all of the strategies for baby-on-board office style. Again, so many still-shoppable items to peruse in this post, and many of them are perfect for work whether or not you’re in the business of growing a person.
Quite often, I’m asked for career and professional advice, and I’m excited to share lots more career tips here on Memorandum going forward. When it comes to time management, I think all of us, regardless of our line of work, struggle to squeeze enough time out of every day to feel both productive and sane. In this post, I walk you through my favorite tips for staying in control of your to-do’s and your calendar. It’s possible, I swear.
How can I forget? That glorious day I had an Aveda stylist come to my home and give me the best curls an iron and a bit of product can possibly achieve. I was raving about this hairstyle days later—because it was still in my hair. In addition to me telling you this folicular fairy tale, I also reached out to my stylist afterward to steal her secrets. And I got them. This post contains the formula for achieving the very best curls of your life, and then making them last. I entrust it to you.
Memorandum is the place dresses come to live their best lives. This is certainly true for one of my favorite roundups of the year (yet), a selection of 21 dresses that pull double duty in your closet. Still shoppable, and still so relevant (another perk of favoring the classics!), this selection covers the color, print, and shape spectrum and it’s a really great post for anyone extra-over their pants-and-a-blouse workwear routine.
Skincare is a Memorandum staple, so it was no surprise to me that my away-team skincare products and procedures were some of your favorites. In this post, I take you through the products I literally won’t leave home without when traveling to a sunny destination—and why. Also completely evergreen in terms of shopping, feel free to bolster your own travel skincare stores as we make our way into August travels. But also remember to boost your water intake, too.
And then there are times we just want to see how much wear we can get out of one garment. In this case, one of my all-time favorites, the shirtdress. In addition to walking you through the variety of scenarios where a shirt dress is ideal, I also stocked this post with so many good accessories for each one. Honestly, just reviewing it made me want to go shopping in my own closet. Perk up summer style that’s started to feel a bit routine by diving back in here and getting the creative wheels spinning again. I mean, that Staud bag…
