Wear: Sleep Mask

I’ve lived in Seattle for over a year now, which means in terms of time changes, seasons, and the like, I’ve seen this all before. HOWEVER, I do not remember being woken by the sun at 5am every day LAST spring/summer. I had just moved, and I think i was too overwhelmed to notice. But this year, HOO BOY. We rise with the DAWN. And dawn is EARLY. I used to be a sleep mask wearer, and now I’m back to it. I’ve been trying a few because wearing something on your face at night is something you need to get exactly right. I like ones that don’t cover my nose, with an adjustable strap that’s not velcro. I own two right now that are both FINE but aren’t PERFECT. I’m ordering this one next.

Watch: Fleabag

The first season of Fleabag came out in 2016. I remember devouring it and then trying to find/watch/read everything I could about Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Then, two and a half years later, we get Fleabag season 2! And it’s just as good if not better. There aren’t plans to make any more Fleabag, not even two and a half years from now, which makes sense. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, in the time between Fleabag seasons, has created Killing Eve, worked on a James Bond script, and sold a show to HBO. She’s not just talented, she’s a treasure. Here’s her 73 Questions, and I hope when she says she wants to play someone raised in the wild she means her next project is a reboot of Nell.

Want: Tee Shirts

Do you ever have those moments where most of your clothes are just WRONG? I’m going though it right now. I keep wearing the same few things because everything else just isn’t right. I’m planning on consigning/donating a bunch of stuff, and then buying a few things that I know will make me feel awesome. I’m particularly looking for some great, simple shirts. I know I want this one from Universal Standard (I want an entire wardrobe from Universal Standard), and I also like this Everlane one. I have this top from Madewell and it’s a great one, and maybe I need it in another color too. Makeover time!
