It Has Pockets!
Many of you have asked me to feature more skirts, so I’ve been keeping my eyes open. This A-line midi skirt in denim has a self-belt and side pockets. Offered in sizes 23-33. Here’s the same style in a soft black wash. And here’s a very similar style that’s also offered in Plus.
Here are a few more skirts with pockets…
I’ve also been on the lookout for more wear-at-home-and-out-and-about styles, and decided to try these side-seam yoga pants. They’re a cotton blend, so are soft and breathable. They performed well in my yoga class yesterday, but felt polished enough for errands on the way home. If you prefer a full-length style, you might like these pants. Both styles run true-to-size.
Leggings? Pants? Or A Little Of Both?
I shared this at-home outfit on Instagram yesterday, which has once again raised the “are they leggings or pants?” debate. I’ve referred to these plaid bottoms as leggings because that’s how the brand has categorized them. (And some retailers seem to be using “leggings” and “skinny ankle pants” interchangeably.)
But I agree they aren’t what many of us traditionally think of as “leggings” which are basically a step up from footless tights. I’d describe them as slim-fitting, knit pants that pull on. (Much like my Eileen Fisher ponte knit pants.) The fabric is substantial enough that I’m comfortable with a hip-length top as opposed to something longer. And in these matters, I tend to err on the side of caution. 😉

Watching & Reading
While it’s a bit OTT at times, I have to admit I really enjoyed “The Morning Show” on Apple TV. Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon are both fun to watch, as are many of the supporting cast. And Steve Carrell nails it as the self-pitying, sexually inappropriate, disgraced morning show host.
And I liked this National Geographic essay on changing beauty standards by Robin Givhan (Fashion Critic for the Washington Post and author of The Battle of Versailles: The Night American Fashion Stumbled Into the Spotlight and Made History.)
