Though I only discovered Elizabeth Suzann a short 8 months ago, I am saddened by the news yesterday of their downscaling of operations, detailed on Instagram here. From the outpouring of comments, it is clear that Liz and her team have helped inspire a movement of sustainable, conscious style. I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to own several of Elizabeth Suzann pieces, both new and pre-loved, and to even visit their HQ and operations in Nashville.
Back in February (how long ago this feels), I took my 2nd sewing class with Workshop SF to learn how to sew a simple boxy top, Shirt No 1 from 100 Acts of Sewing. This is a great, beginner-friendly pattern for a wardrobe staple that I’ll easily get a ton of wear out of. Since that class, I’ve made a few variations and wanted to share what I’ve learned so far.
Though many of us are spending all our time at home right now, this is almost a perfect timing for Rothy’s latest sandal release. Their Knot & Triple Band styles are certainly nice enough to elevate my sock-centric WFH style as of late. Even if you can’t wear their newest styles out in the world as they were intended, they actually work as really nice house slippers.
I already have a few pairs of Birdies slides and slippers – the shoes that famously began as indoor slippers and had to pivot after Meghan Markle wore them into fame. So I was curious to see how The Knot and The Triple Band felt in comparison.
While I was prepared to optimize my 9-to-6 schedule for productivity, I wasn’t expecting to feel this sense of… timelessness that is starting to settle in after only two weeks of WFH. I often find myself forgetting exactly what day of week it is, especially without regular “outdoor” anchors. So I wanted to take a moment midweek to parse through some feelings and thoughts.

Though we’re well into spring, the weather has still been chilly here so I’ve been making full use of my sweaters while WFH. Everlane is currently running a sale on their cashmere sweaters which are normally an affordable $100 and are now only $75. I figured this would be a good time to share my experiences with their various sweaters thus far.
