(Aaaand looks like it’s about time to wash Harriet’s hammock …)

Sarah has edgy, androgynous style absolutely nailed.

Why Eco Beauty Begins with Skin Health

“We cannot hope to bring about change if we don’t challenge people, and all sorts of people at that. Sometimes we will fail to reach people. That is to be expected. Body positivity, after all, is a threatening notion to those who either benefit from or believe they benefit from body terrorism. But just because you might not reach them straight away, that does not mean you never will.”

In the Star Tribune, I wrote about how to shop for shorts that fit and feel great.

A Smart Fashion Mag Is Hard to Find

This podcast touches on how to deal with doctor visits when you’re in recovery from an eating disorder.

Cropped flares are the trendy silhouette for summer, and Nora shows us how to style them.

Patti recommends some great reads for anyone considering downsizing her closet.

“The truth is: There are far too few conversations between thin women asking hard questions like ‘How can we balance our own body acceptance journey with centering the more marginalized in our communities?’ and ‘How do we hold one another accountable in activism, so that others don’t have to take up that labor?’ But we should be talking to one another, trying to figure this shit out. We have to. Because our work can too easily further marginalize fat people. And when our work, no matter how many #bopo hashtags we throw on it, hurts fat people, we’re failing.”

Still loving the look of front-back earrings, like this stud-and-claw Rebecca Minkoff pair.

I loved reading Angie’s thoughts on watching unusual looks become the “new normal.”

Petite ladies, how do you feel about these recommendations for denim styles that work on petite frames? I feel like flares can be overwhelming, depending on your build …

Kim’s bow blouse and tux jacket look fabulous with simple skinny jeans.
