leepaceyourselves said: Hi Carly! My friend and I are about to go on a superrr long road trip and were gonna download some TED talks to listen to on the way! Do you have any suggestions or favorites? Thanks!

Both of Brené Brown’s Ted Talks are amazing and Sarah Kay’s “If I Should Have a Daughter” is my favorite ever. (This one about Body Language is great too!)

I have the navy and olive Beadnell and the Bedale is also a great option.

I’m a real life cotton ball! Like my haircut? 🐶

Crew "herringbone" vest supposed to be woven (like embroidered/threaded or however you would phrase that) or is it supposed to be just like the other puffer vests, but printed? I passed by my J. Crew factory store today and it was just like all the other vests but it was just printed.

It’s printed :)

PS J. Crew has a pinstripe one now…. too cute!

Try Graphic Image– they’re totally luxurious and can be embossed with your monogram.

So incredible to see the final #rowingblazer book by @jacklcarlson with photography by @fecastleberry. The photo of my crew was taken in September 2011 and I have been counting down the days to see the final product. It’s simply beautiful; a gorgeous depiction of the sport and its traditions and athletes. Available for pre-order: rowingblazers.com/pre-order

bms79 said: Hi Carly! I was wondering, what do you do to relax? Do you plan something everyday, or take a day off every week for example? How did you plan this out in college, when weekends are pretty much devoted to homework :(

I relax by reading, watching movies, and going for walks with Teddy!

In college, I was on the rowing team, so I was up early every day and spent most of Saturday practicing and studying all day Sunday. But I would try to get all my homework and reading done between Friday and Sunday so that I could relax at night during the school week. (I never had classes on Friday so I could spend all of Friday working/studying for class the following week.) Of course, some weeks were worse than others– professors seemed to conspire against us and make all the papers/exams/projects due in the same week! 

Even though I felt like I was super busy in college, I honestly look back and realize just how much “off” time you have at school. Prioritization and organization will help make sure you’re utilizing your time wisely.
