  1. I subscribe to Your Guide to Style and was glad to see Jamie’s feature on dark jeans included! She is much younger, but has such helpful videos that can be applied across all age groups. She has fun ideas that I have incorporated into my own wardrobe. I used to put dark jeans away in the summer, but will no longer do that. And those PF Chang’s lettuce wraps….not sure anything vegetarian can really be as good as the original, but it’s a real treat to get those in the restaurant!!

  2. What a helpful collection, Pam. I like the idea of quiet luxury and conscious consumerism. It is refreshing in this throw-away society. Can’t wait to try some bean recipes, and muffins, too. Thanks for putting this together.

  3. I have always loved those lettuce wraps and I need to test this recipe. Will try to do it soon. Thanks Karen.

  4. I saw that article on quiet luxury, and some others. I don’t like to think of myself as overly affected by trends, but I guess I am, because I’ve been thinking a lot about a more curated, higher end wardrobe. I don’t need very many clothes, and I’ve always been drawn to natural fibers and a simple aesthetic (with accessories, though, because of my “interesting” adjective). I hate logos on clothing and bags … they should be paying -me- to wear advertising, not the other way around. The luxury has to be within reason cost-wise for me, but I love the fit and silhouette on many better brands. I have had a good look around my closet, and have noticed that my better brands have survived several purges, while my “fun” and “just need variety and it’s on sale” stuff goes. I bet if I added up the money I’ve spent on the latter, I could have had a few good pieces that would still be front and center in my closet.

  5. If “beige and gray” are quiet luxury, I hope San Antonio and Miami don’t follow the trend.

  6. I love to read about lost art work! Happy to hear Germanicus is going home! Great articles! Thank you Pam!

  7. As most of you know, I have bee leaning this direction, but had no idea it was a trend with label. I am just following that I believe is best for me right now…who knew?

  8. I will be eating a lot of salad meals as the weather gets warmer. Adding a protein like shrimp, chicken or even salmon to mixed greens & fresh veggies from the farmers market makes a cool & filling dinner on a hot summer day, so the article on salads gave me some additional ideas. I appreciated the article on decorating mistakes as I am collecting ideas for my home redo. I also enjoyed the article on quiet luxury. I no longer do fast fashion & have never been a fan of logos. Some great bargains can be found at outlet stores for Banana Republic & others. This reconciles my love of high-end fashion & my need to be mindful of my budget. Thanks for the work you put into finding all these interesting articles.

  9. Thanks, Pam. I so enjoy your Wednesday selections. I’m going to try some salads and love the idea of “healthy” muffins – lol. I am going to try one or two, though.

  10. Thanks for another great assortment of information! I was fascinated by the story of Germanicus, and wondered if you will be able to see it while it’s in San Antonio. I also really enjoy Jamie’s video on dark jean outfits, as they are a staple for me. I hadn’t seen her before, and fell down the rabbit hole of her channel – so much great info! Thanks for cultivating yet another great collection for us.
