Don’t Call It A Comeback

Push. Crash. Push. Crash.

Sound familiar?

These two words have summed up my 2018. I push myself to the brink, and promptly crash and need a few days to recover. Once I feel like myself, I push again. And crash again (and end up with a nasty stomach virus, ugh).

Sound familiar?

Most of my time is spent working on Rho Pharma these days, constantly editing our investor deck and having meetings with would-be investors, advisors, or medical professionals.

It’s fun. It’s exciting. And it results in my falling asleep next to Rho most nights.

In an effort to streamline the rest of my life, I’ve started to pull a few outfits on Sunday night that I can throw on and go on busy days. This one is a current favorite – a mix of my favorite colors, insanely comfortable heels, and a bag that can hold my entire life.

It’s easy. It’s stylish. And it’s one less thing that I have to think about.

The top and pants are a part of MM’s Comeback collection, featuring the latest versions of their longtime favorites. The Townsend top is a nice departure from my collection of Didions, with a bit more structure and formality. The Foster pants are the greatest, truly. They feel like leggings, but look like they belong on Audrey Hepburn.

Both pieces are an investment, but they’re worth it. The pants especially – I probably wear mine twice a week, and they still look brand new 6 months later.

And the Graham. It’s the perfect, throw-it-on-and-go topper. I’m not sorry at how much I wear it.

Enough with the clothes. Let’s talk about these shoes.

The name Sarah Flint probably sounds familiar. The famed footwear designer launched her eponymous line when she was just 25. Within 3 years, she was appointed to the CFDA, recognized by Footwear News as ‘One To Watch’, and even had a fan in Amal Clooney.

The same shoes are now nearly 50% off, due to her decision to go direct-to-consumer. Nothing about the shoes has changed – they’re still hand crafted in Italy, beautifully designed, and made from the same materials.

I’ve done marathon days in the Emma pumps – school drop-off, subways during rush hour, running around Soho and Flatiron for meetings.

My feet? Fine. Great, even. Which means I’m already hunting for my next pair – these heels, or maybe these boots?

Maybe both.

Disclosure – I’m an investor in MM.LaFleur, but I purchased all of these items myself. All opinions are, as always, my own.
