On My Mind: 10.24.11

by Rachael on October 24, 2011

Mondays at The Variegated Life: links to some stuff I’ve liked …

At Sew Liberated, Meg has chucked her to-do list. As for me, I’ve been headed in the opposite direction lately, though really what I want is to find the middle way.

I’m hopeless (well, mostly) when it comes to shopping for clothing, and so my wardrobe is kinda boring. At Small Notebook, Rachel provides a shopping guide for her “comfortably dressy” style. Her style is somewhat more conservative than mine would be if I, um, actually had any style; nevertheless, just about all of her advice is useful.

Blue Milk asks (again) what we’re afraid of when we’re afraid of giving in to motherhood.

Also from Blue Milk, a word about breastfeeding “nazis.”

And The Practical Dilettante, Seonaid, asks what happened to the fallow time. Oh, I’d like to know….

We seem to have had many of the same things on our minds this past week. That bit about chucking the to do list came just when I needed it, and so did Blue Milk’s bit on breastfeeding “nazis” as well, really. There really were some good reads this week.

As for the style, or the lack thereof, I can relate. I’ll have to check out that shopping guide.

I would love to chuck my to-do list, but that would result in my missing deadlines. As it is, I’ve been haunted all day that it might *actually* be Tuesday, in which case I would have completely missed teaching my online class!

Rachel’s shopping guide is helpful; plus she’s done a lot of posts on how she gradually assembled her wardrobe — apparently without spending a gazillion dollars, either. Very good tips, and definitely a process I’d like to follow once I’m past this big-belly phase.
