Here’s the most inspiring podcast episode yet


On Everything is Fine this week we’ve got Tiffany Dufu, Founder & CEO of The Cru, a peer networking organization for advancing women, who believes that  “each one of us is the most powerful change agent in our own journey.” I love what she has to say about how to believe in yourself and know your value, the importance of competition, and why vulnerability can be a superpower. But really, the episode is worth listening to just to hear her genius hacks for getting through the day. Listen in on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Taking requests: button-downs with cool prints


This ask comes from my beloved former podcast partner Tally (by the way, my new partner Jenn and I have a new episode today!), who likes a button-down with a little something extra going on. I am especially enamored of this sweet heart print.

What could be fresher than a bright green floral? I also like the straight-across hem, which I’m certain isn’t the technical term for it.

A star print that’d be cute peeking out from under a blazer.

A delightfully loud shirt from Boden, of all places.

This lipstick print is just so fun and kind of 70s-ish.

This is kind of Lily Pulitzer-ish, but in a way I can really get behind.

And here commences the animal print portion of the post: this blue leopard print is nicely subtle, for a leopard print.

And here’s a really good cheetah print; here’s one that’s much cheaper.

Meanwhile, these leaping cheetahs are just so charming.

And this snakeskin print is as slinky as it is slouchy.

I love the mix of colors on this batik number.

Eensy little pineapples animate this sweet shirt.

This trippy green paisley-ish specimen is kind of cool in a retroish way.

This print kind of looks like wallpaper, but in a good way.

And this has a kind of antique-y feel.

A lively Liberty of London petunia print.

This sheer floral Isabel Marant top is marked way down.


A softly sexy floral in subdued hues.

I like the tropical details on this western shirt.

A really satisfyingly graphic zebra print from & Other Stories.

And finally: I dig the contrasting pockets on this Xirena shirt.
