Wendy’s Weekly Picks

f6bcc401800ae05873e4a6ce1d0b5de3_bestWendy’s Weekly Picks,” is a feature in which I highlight stuff I like or recommend in the worlds of fashion, gift ideas, home decor, makeup, websites, entertainment, and recipes. Of course, much of the stuff I link to will be affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the affiliate links. As always, I appreciate your support! Here are my favorite finds this week:


barkThins: possibly the best thing ever (Toasted coconut with almonds is my favorite), second only to the whole month of May, and, ok, top shelf tequila. (By the way, tomorrow is national tequila day. Here’s my recipe for pomegranate margaritas, one of my favorite tequila cocktails). Look for barkThins in your local grocery store or Target or on Amazon (though they’re really marked up on Amazon for some reason).

Anthropologie is having sale on sale items (get an additional 20% off with code SALEAWAY). I bought this shirt in two colors (pink and the black motif) and I’m debating getting it in a third color (maybe red motif). The patterns are so pretty and I love the long, flowy, breezy fit, especially over my postpartum belly (and I like the way it looks tucked in in the front to show off a more fit shape). And I also got this, which I love, for, like, maybe a night out with Drew if we ever go out again. Other sale picks: this sun hat; this beautiful silk dress; and this gorgeous pencil skirt.

Two new movies I watched recently and loved: “Wolfpack” and “Tig”. The former is a documentary about six brothers who grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and were almost never allowed to leave their apartment. They sought escape in the thousands of movies their father recorded or brought home for them to watch. The latter film is another doc, this one about stand-up comedian Tig Notaro and how she found the humor and silver lining in her terminal cancer diagnosis. Both: really good!

Someone asked in the forums the other day for swimsuit recommendations for big-chested gals, and, being a big-chested gal myself (you guys, my nursing boobs are a size F! As in WHAT THE EFF?), I have a couple suggestions for holding the girls in while looking cute on the beach. The first one is the suit I recommend every summer (because it’s a classic). I love it, it’s seriously the best. The other is a bikini which is surprisingly flattering on those of us with more mom-like bods.

Some of you have asked me where I got the robe I’m wearing in these photos. It was a gift from Drew (that he gave to me at the hospital when Joanie was born) and he got it at a store in Soho that doesn’t have an online retail shop. Here are a few great alternatives you can find online: this, this, this, this, and this one if you’re crazy rich (or just crazy).
