hot pants + a podcast.

the new look

hot pink wide leg pant

this is an old look, but i suppose all of the ones i’m posting on the blog are since i’m not going outside. that’s not to say i’m not dressing up—at least a little. these hot pink wide leg pants stand out in the best way possible. they have a high waist, are in an easy, drapey fabric that resists wrinkles, and are super comfortable. i’ve even been wearing these as i’m working from home with tees and sweatshirts. unfortunately they aren’t available anymore in pink, but they do come in a sunny yellow and classic navy or black.

if you didn’t see via instagram, i was a guest on the mean magazine podcast last week. it was a different interview than what i normally do—i’m not just covering my blogging and work career, but growing up on the east coast, my feelings on segregation and racism in those areas, and the death of my my husband dana 3 years ago. kristen and i have been friends for years, and she had meet dana many times before, but never knew what was going on. the episode is the first time i’ve opened up about his struggles with addiction and mental health, how i handled it, and supported him and myself. our current shelter-in-place situation has me thinking more and more about mental health, and how so many people feel shame and guilt when it comes to asking for help. i’ve been trying to figure out a way to talk about it, knowing that when it was happening to me, it was hard to find resources, and i also felt failure in that i couldn’t “fix” it. the more we talk about these things, the more normalized it will become, and hopefully the eaiser it will be for people to admit they need help. please give the episode a listen, and check in on your friends and family.

thanks so much for stopping by and have a good rest of your week…
