Richard Simmons & Bralettes

Do any of you guys like to listen to podcasts? Between the growing number of documentaries in my netflix playlist and the books I have on my reading list, I also have a ton of new podcasts that I just downloaded waiting to be listened to. And today, while running errands, I let all six episodes of Missing Richard Simmons play in the car. And you know what? I've got some thoughts about it. 

First of all, I wasn't ever a big fan of Richard Simmons. You know the guy. He always came off as a bit too loud and a bit too much for my liking but I appreciated the fact that he was all about health and fitness. But someone recommended the podcast to me and as it turns out, it had gotten a lot of attention. And after listening to the first episode,  I was hooked. I never realized that Richard Simmons was that big. And that he had changed and affected so many peoples lives that much. So much so that someone felt the need to start a podcast because there were that many people who felt they needed closure/answers to his sudden disappearance from the entire world. 

Without giving too much away, because I sincerely think you should listen to it, I started thinking about how even the most successful and famous people don't have life all figured out. They're not as happy as we think they are and they go through life with all the emotions just like we do. They can be just as lost and lonely. On a personal level, this seems strangely comforting. I know its ridiculous to think I'm the only one that goes through difficulties but to know even those that seem to have it all also go through these human experiences... well, its a good reminder to stop comparing and over-anazlying and remember that everybody is fighting some fight, whether it be big or small. 

I don't want to keep rambling so I'll just say that if you ever find some time or are curious about the man that is Richard Simmons... take a listen. It's kind of fascinating. 

Aaaand on a completely unrelated topic: bralettes. Typically worn underneath clothes, it's also something that we ladies like to wear on top of outfits as well. Even a big sweatshirt. It just adds a bit of spice and everything nice. Admittedly, I probably wouldn't have worn this in my past life but NYC is rubbing off on me and I kind of (really) like it. 


Denim: J Brand Mid-Rise Skinny in Fleeting
