A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

Author, illustrator and Cup of Jo favorite Mari Andrew finds wardrobe inspiration on her morning walk around the block. “I’m inspired by a lot of the older folks who shuffle around the East Village in the morning, running errands or stretching in the park. You never see them in sweats, but in bold accessories and really elegant looks.” Here, Mari shares five outfits she wore in a week…

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

Top: For Good Luck, similar. Jeans, Rolla’s. Glasses: Garrett Leight. Scrunchie bow: Free People. Earrings: Young Frankk, similar. Pretzel necklace: Yossi Harari. Bracelets: Susan Alexandra, similar. Watermelon bag: Susan Alexandra. Rings: vintage, similar. Shoes: Nisolo.

“I always feel better when I’m wearing something bold and feminine — like an off-the-shoulder top or hair bow. I love seeing what people on the streets of New York are wearing, and I’m happy to contribute to that silent conversation.”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

Sweatshirt: eBay. Skirt: Madewell, similar. Scrunchie bow: Free People. Glasses: Garrett Leight. Earrings: Young Frankk, similar. Bracelets: Susan Alexandra, similar.

“It’s easy to just never get dressed when you work from home, which is why I always begin my day with a walk around the neighborhood. I either go journal in a coffee shop or grocery shop, so I actually like to wear an OUTFIT! You never know when you might meet the love of your life!”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

“I think anyone who loved American Girl dolls are probably pretty pleased about the ribbon/bow trend at the moment. An astrologer once told me I had a lot of feminine energy, and from then on I really leaned into dressing with as many frills and bows as I wanted. It’s justified—in my stars!”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

Coat: Anthropologie, similar. Dress: Caroline Costas. Name necklace: custom Susan Alexandra, similar. Bag: Susan Alexandra. Shoes: Urban Outfitters, similar.

“A big part of my job is speaking, and I’ve found that the more I look like a queen when I speak, the more confident I am. I recently spoke at a conference where the dress code was ‘casual’ and most people were in jeans, and I showed up in a ballgown with my nails done and all my jewelry. Even though I’m very jokey and casual in my speaking style, my dress must have some kind of presence. A substantial part of my suitcase is devoted to the dress!”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

“I love name necklaces in general because I think anyone with a tricky-to-pronounce name is probably very attached to theirs. My beloved friend Susan is known for her bags but I asked her for a beaded name necklace for my birthday, which she made so beautifully! It makes me so happy, and I get a lot of compliments on it. I even got a compliment from a guy on a date who somehow thought it was a colorful tattoo!”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

Dress: Christy Dawn. Hat: Free People. Tote: similar. Boots: Earth.

“I’m inspired by anyone who brings their full self to what they’re doing, and I try to do that with my art. It takes a long time to get to know yourself well, and even then, you’re always evolving. That’s one reason I love spending time traveling and eating and doing life alone!”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

“I always have the same morning ritual, even when I travel: a walk, a bit of journaling and a simple prayer. When flying, I always make sure I have a playlist of fun dance songs for the plane. I have a bad phobia of flying, so I put on my dance playlist when turbulence starts and just try to bounce along with it. A good line dance song is particularly helpful — The Wobble has gotten me through some rough flights.”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew
Dress: For Love and Lemons. Black seam tights: Urban Outfitters. Earrings: Young Frankk. Bag: Susan Alexandra, similar. Rings: vintage, similar. Shoes: Zilian.

“Dating is one of the favorite parts of my life. I love going out and getting to know someone new. As a writer, it’s a dream to get to just observe someone for a couple hours, especially over candlelight and cocktails! The hard parts feel totally worth it when you get an incredible second date that makes you feel like you’re the first person who has ever felt infatuated with anyone.”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

“This dress is just delightful—it’s like if Grace Jones went to a garden party! I love adding a bit of humor and surprise to my outfits, and I think the tights with the seam do just that. You get up from your date to go to the bathroom and—surprise—a seam! ‘Who is this mysterious babe?’ your date will think. You can’t wear seam tights and not feel absolutely magnificent.”

A Week of Outfits: Mari Andrew

“I go pretty formal for dates, since I love dressing up. The ritual is so fun: putting on some Missy Elliott or Leon Bridges (depending how you want the date to go), doing your makeup and hair with a glass of wine, putting on heels, and texting your friends that you’re about to leave. I like feeling excited and giddy, and dresses certainly add to that feeling!”

Thank you so much, Mari! You’re wonderful!

P.S. More women share their week of outfits including a global security consultant and a professor.

    I love Mari’s art and now I love her style! and her hair and her attitude! xx

  2. Karinny says...

    Love everything about this post! To finally meet Mari, to see her beautiful outfits, to listen to her ideas and a peak into her place (we need a tour please!). Mari you are delightful!!!

  3. God I love Mari’s work and I’m so excited to see her here! She has the most sensitive and fun sense of style. Kudos to her date night outfit… fun, bright, and sexy without being over the top. She’s the best.

  4. Jackie says...

    Get it girl! I wish I had been this confident and happiness about dating and just being me. I found that after being married and having kids (and maybe being on the eve of 40 helps too) but I am so happy that younger women are feeling their fire and taking charge of all aspects of life.

  5. Tamires says...

    She’s gorgeous and inspiring! I loved it!

  6. I’ve never related with a “Week-of-Outfits” post more! I work from home too (and homeschool my two wild boys), but still make it a point to always put on an outfit, do my hair/makeup, and put on jewelry/bows. I have a very feminine energy as well and LOVE dressing up. I too LOVE feeling giddy and excited. Even though I’ve been married for years, I still find ways to incorporate those things into my life. Love it Mari!

  7. Ellie says...

    Okay that dress is seriously stunning!

  8. Meg says...

    I second this!

  9. Becky says...

    Just saved every single picture in this post to my ‘perfection’ pinterest board. Any chance of a ‘what I wear in a year’ follow up?! This woman is an icon!

  10. Wavering says...

    I love Mari’s trick to boost her speaking confidence. I’d welcome a series of posts on COJ about how to enhance public speaking skills. I had to present, very briefly, as part of a meeting at work this week — the room and mood was very formal and I completely lost my confidence. Picture voice wavering, heartbeat crashing in my ears, heavy arms and hot face. An absolute trainwreck. Every morning now, when I wake up, it’s the first thing that I recall. Grim! Even worse, I’m going to have to go to these meetings monthly… gulp! Please help us find our voices as women with ideas to share, COJ. Thanks for considering xx

    • Shiobhan says...

      I used to have a similar terror of public speaking! I still get nervous but not blackout terrified anymore — it helped me to picture the absolute worst case scenario that could happen if I were to mess up/not do as great as I’d hoped. Most of the time, it’s not the end of the world. If the worst that could happen is that your presentation isn’t considered the best (and not that you’d get fired for it), there’s no harm/shame in that. just take a deep breath, speak slowly, and then think of it as something you can improve upon at the next meeting. And the next. And the next after that.

      Mari’s trick about dressing to boost your confidence also really helps: going into the meeting in a serious(ly stylish) outfit and badass accessories, knowing you at least LOOK like you belong there, is half the battle won. It will help you stand up straighter, look people in the eye, project your voice authoritatively and command the audience’s attention. The instructor at my last training session, where we each had to give a presentation to summarise our group’s work at the end, gave me a high score because he said the way I looked and carried myself in my stylish but work appropriate outfit really helped convey — and inspire! — confidence in what I was saying. So, appearances really do matter here!

      Of course you also have to familiarize yourself with your topic inside and out but that goes without saying. Practice until you get it down pat, so that if you have to answer questions, you’ll be ready!

      Now go forth and slay, girl! You got this!!

    • I do think it will get easier, one month after another. Good luck! Breathe, smile… it helps. :)

    • Erin says...

      Oddly, what worked for me was having a supervisor in grad school who would interrupt *every single* presentation I gave in lab meeting. “Are you going to talk about X?” he’d say, usually impatiently, when I put up the title slide for a Power Point presentation. “YES, can you wait until I get to slide 2?”

      It annoyed me at first, although it was also so blatant as to be hilarious, even in the moment. (And he did it to everyone, so I didn’t feel picked on.) It took me a while to realize the interruptions were valuable, since I gradually learned that “giving a talk” didn’t have to be all that different from just TALKING. Yes, I had to prepare and know my stuff, but I didn’t have to feel thrown by the fact that I had several people listening who wanted to interact with me and ask questions.

    • Wavering (a little less now) says...

      Thanks for all the gorgeous follow-up comments :) You are all delightful — I feel very supported xx

  11. A says...

    It makes me so happy to see that, in almost every photo, Mari chose to showcase work by her friend (whose work makes me very happy in and of itself), but that choice to repeatedly show off her friend’s work!! Women supporting women.

  12. Ess says...

    Mari home tour, please??!

  13. M.Nicole says...

    Ummmmm so Mari seems like the bees knees! Love how her personality comes through in her clothes and accessories.

  14. Noreen says...

    “I think anyone who loved American Girl dolls are probably pretty pleased about the ribbon/bow trend at the moment.” <- CAN WE BE BEST FRIENDS? (typed while wearing one of like 10 recently acquired statement headbands)

  15. SN says...

    Queen, icon, legend! Thanks to CoJ for introducing Mari to a few years ago. She’s a bright spot in this world!

    • Christina Guglielmo says...

      Yes! I was thinking the SAME thing, I love her!

  16. Jennifer says...

    She’s wonderful. I really enjoyed this post, and am so inspired. One day soon I hope to know myself and my style so well and really feel confident in my body and clothes as she is.

    She’s like such a breath of fresh air for February!

  17. S says...

    Love her bold and colourful style! I have a genuine question for COJ readers though – I clicked on the links for 2 of the dresses and they were both over $200 (for one, it was the sale price!). I personally could not afford a wardrobe of $200+ everyday dresses. What about the rest of the readers here? Is that the norm for your wardrobe? Mine would be everyday dresses in the $50-$70 range and only special occasion dresses (e.g. ones I’d wear to a wedding, gala, milestone birthday etc.) in the $200+ range?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you for your note! we strive to feature a mix of budgets — as well as careers, locations, styles, ages, races, marital statuses, etc. mari’s dresses were on the higher priced end, but here are a few that are less splurgy:

    • hannah says...

      I just discovered Poshmark and it’s a fantastic way to get some pricier pieces in your wardrobe without such an investment. (I’ve recently developed an obsession with silk camisoles, but can’t afford to pay $100 a pop. On Poshmark, I’ve found several between $5-$50!) I also love that it’s paying another person directly and keeping from buying new and thus extending the life cycle of an item. The negotiating aspect can also be fun if you’re into that!

    • Poppy says...

      i’ll be the one who says that my everyday dresses are $12 (old navy clearance, v exciting if i can grab a $7 one) and special occasion is $40!

    • Elena says...

      S… don’t be afraid to wait for a sale! So often things get marked down towards the end of season or during a holiday. And yes to Poshmark and even thrifting if you’re game. :)

  18. jules says...

    Absoutely PHENOMENONAL!! I am inspired to molt out of my big grey winter sweaters and reimagine my vibe. Thank you Mari and CoJ!

  19. Julie says...

    I love Mari’s confidence! I love her artwork and seeing her here made my day!

  20. Barbara Jane says...

    JOY! Absolute JOY! Mari’s style is amazing, her confidence and wit really shine through what she wears. Even with all of her bright color and pattern (which I love) it’s her big smile that really completes every look. Can we get her beauty routine too?

  21. Gaby says...

    What a fun and joyful person!

  22. Lily says...

    Omg I would KILL for Mari’s hair — the waves, the texture, the colour, the darling curls at the ends, it’s all to die for!

  23. Kasia says...

    So lovely and inspiring. I love what she says and her attitude <3 I think I'm going to print this out and hang it above my desk :D

  24. Abbey says...

    Love love love this! Mari — and her wardrobe — are a total delight.

    I also love to hear from someone who views dating as so much fun, cuz it IS! Endlessly fascinating. Last year I was dating like it was my job and my morning getting-ready-for-the-day jam was “BOYS” by Charli XCX hahaha :) Put that one on your plane playlist too, Mari! <3

  25. Brook says...

    This is always my favorite series!!!

  26. Claire says...

    UM can we talk about Mari’s date outfit???? DAYUM. Thanks for inspiring me to up my date game, love the boldness! Needed this dose of fun and sweetness today.

    XO

  27. grace says...

    Could we please get a hair tutorial for that gold bow photo?? xoxo

  28. How do you pronounce Mari? (Mine is like Mary, but I know normally it rhymes with sari.)

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      Hers rhymes with starry! :)

    • Thanks!

  29. Janice O'Kane says...

    Oh my gosh, I love this post so much and this comment of Mari’s: ” I’m happy to contribute to that silent conversation.” Love her and her work!!

  30. Poppy says...

    Mari, where is your nail polish from? It is the perfect accompaniment to those fabulous outfits! 😊

  31. Lizzie says...

    Favorite week of outfits yet. Brilliant style!

  32. Chrissie says...

    “Who is this mysterious babe?” made me smile so big! Love Mari!

  33. Sarah vL says...

    I loved EVERYTHING about this post, Mari most especially!! Her fashion is the best and I’m overjoyed to see her profiled here. Go, Mari, go!!!

  34. Jane I. says...

    <3 this line: "I love seeing what people on the streets of New York are wearing, and I’m happy to contribute to that silent conversation.”

    To me, Mari's look screams NYC! I could not even dream of trying to pull these outfits off as flawlessly. But it made me think about my own big city, Las Vegas, which is flooded with tourists. And yet, I feel like I can always tell who the locals are merely based on what they are wearing. I can't even really describe it – but it feel like Vegas people definitely have a look.

    I'm curious, do other people feel like their city as a "look?" Can you define it?

    • Meghan says...

      Omg! Such a good question. I live in a small cottage town north of Toronto and I know my town has a look because I can always spot the tourists from Toronto! Vancouver has a VERY distinct look, IMO. I’ve never seen so many people out doing errands in their athletic wear! haha!

    • Kat O says...

      I’m originally from Denver and we’re a lot more relaxed with business dress, so you might see “Colorado casual” for work, which is your best jeans and Patagonia. Dunno if that’s changed with the influx of people moving there…

    • Roons says...

      Yes – I live in a tourist town in Florida. Can always tell the locals by the never ending tan and the wardrobe. – So true!

    • Kate says...

      Meghan – as a lifelong Torontonian who often wonders whether that fact is super obvious to locals when swinging by a grocery store or LCBO on my way to a family or friend’s cottage – you confirmed my deep-seated suspicious feeling that it was! I’m the most self-conscious when driving up still dressed in my Bay St. work clothes haha.

      Now dying to know which town you life in – I love the charm of the towns in cottage country and of course, the beautiful landscape outlying them all. xo

    • Jamie says...

      Haha yes! I live in Austin TX, and my husband and I always joke when we see a “Dallas person.” Austin is super casual and laidback — even at very nice restaurants, people are in shorts and tshirts. Meanwhile the Dallas vibe is more done-up, with women wearing lots of makeup, fixed hair, fancy dresses with heels, and designer bags. Dallas men tuck in their shirts and sometimes have expensive cowboy boots — I’m pretty sure my Austin-native husband has only ever tucked in his shirt once, for our wedding haha.

    • Jane I. says...

      I love knowing the vibe of other cities/towns! Now I’ve got the travel bug! Thanks for sharing friends!

    • Heather says...

      I grew up in a small town in the mid Hudson Valley. I’ve since moved to Boston, and my clothes have subtly changed over time as a result. I work downtown and the uniform is more fancy and formal. I really notice the change when I visit my parents and sister back home. My sister works at a farm stand and talks about the New York City tourists playing country dress-up when they come up for the weekend – Wellington boots and Barbour jackets, etc. I’ve realized that I’m starting to look like a city mouse in the country when I visit, too, with my J.Crew coat and fresh Bean boots. Most of the locals are dressed more casually and practically.

  35. Ashley says...

    Love all the floral and feminine energy!

  36. Ginger says...

    I have to say that while I don’t think I would make ANY of the style choices she’s made (completely NOT ME), it’s still really great to see someone who is comfortable with themselves and owning it. That, more than the fashion, is why this series is worth reading every time.

    • Neela says...

      Exactly what I came to say! I’m so convinced by her commitment to her style, and the expression of her personality. I love the diversity and character of this series!

  37. Mari has SUCH a fun style! And I need some maxi-dresses!

  38. Luísa says...

    LOVE THIS!!!!!!

  39. Agnès says...

    I love Every thing about Mari!

  40. Carrie says...

    YAY!!! I love Mari! She’s just such a magical mix of all these amazing human qualities, it makes her so charming and magnetic.

    • Leigha says...

      She’s so inspired! There needs to be a Mari movie.

  41. All of these looks are amazing! I used to dress up all the time in college and once I got into the workforce, the desire to look cute melted away but Mari you’ve reignited something in me! Thank you!

  42. Amy says...

    Mari’s style sparks joy. I also love love love her work. Whatever emotion I feel, she has a piece that is SPOT ON for it.

  43. Maire says...

    Mari is my favorite person to follow on Instagram, and now is my favorite fashion inspiration. Keep on shining, Mari, you are the best!

  44. Dawn says...

    Great post! Love all of her outfits and style!

  45. Audrey says...

    “putting on some Missy Elliott or Leon Bridges (depending how you want the date to go)” – YAASS! this speaks to my soul LOL

  46. L says...

    love mari and love the way her voice shines through this post – thank you for the feature!

  47. Cynthia says...

    All her outfits are fun, and I really fell in love with the black dress because I love bright designs on black. I remember my mom wearing seamed stockings because seamless ones hadn’t been invented yet.

  48. Sarah says...

    Mari is a goddess. I was in awe from the first outfit and only descended deeper into adoration as I scrolled. That yellow bow! The seam tights and blue shoes! Love!

  49. Amanda says...

    I broke into a huge grin seeing the title of this post! I love the WoO posts and I LOVE Mari Andrew! Thank you for featuring her. The colorful clothes, the infectious smile, and the NYC single girl vibes are amazing, and her personality shines through the photos.

    As a fellow glasses-wearer, I feel that glasses are a huge part of my “look” but doing makeup (especially eye makeup) and the whole lip color/glasses color thing mostly escapes me. Could we have Mari or other glasses-wearing folks do a Cup of Jo tutorial/article on the topic? Would love tips, inspiration, models, etc.
    xxoo

    • Jules says...

      As someone who’s been searching the market for hair bows I’d love to hear some recs on companies that sell nice adult ones if anyone here knows any!

  50. Krissy says...

    So happy to see this; Mari’s colorful wardrobe seriously brightened up my day. Love her!!

  51. Hilary says...

    Be still my heart! Mari, you are the ultimate girl crush ❤️

  52. Josephine Pajor-Markus says...

    What spectacular energy! Love your vibe, Mari! Not sure I can pick a favourite here, but I do feel an urgent need for a statement maxi dress all of a sudden…

  53. Mollcoll says...

    I love this – and Mari! I love a reason to get dressed up and Mari’s willingness to do it more than most is awesome. Xx

  54. B says...

    I have exactly zero places to wear a Christy Dawn dress in this season of my life, but man, oh, man do I want one. Her designs are so beautiful.

    • Hilary says...

      Same, B! Maybe it’s time for us to take a page from Mari and just wear it to be part of the sartorial conversation?

  55. I saw Mari speak on a panel with Gracey Bonney a few years ago, and she was a goddamned delight.
    Thanks for sharing your style and general wonderfulness!

  56. Eleanor says...

    I was so happy to see Mari!!! She is such a delight in her art and then when she started sharing her look on instagram sometimes I’m always like “WOW– this is how I’m going to dress when I’m a grownup” (I’m already one but I don’t feel like I have the confidence.) Thanks for featuring Mari!! Bring her back for a beauty routine or a travel diary.

    PS– I recently saw her Smokey Bear sweatshirt at Target

  57. Daena says...

    Loved the long dresses!

  58. Joaquina says...

    Mari is not only talented but stylish, with a joie de vivre.
    I have to laugh at her comment that she finds “dating fun”. As a middle aged woman of color, this is so hard to relate to but I am genuinely happy for her. Best of luck, Mari, and keep looking to us older folk for fashion inspiration!

  59. Julie says...

    She is sunshine and the color wheel in human form. LOVE her sense of style and her confidence, this made me grin.

  60. Elizabeth says...

    Mari, I love your idea of being inspired by people who bring their full selves to what they do. It takes such courage to be bold!

    Also, you look gorgeous in these photos! I especially like the sumptuousness, the almost romance-novel-cover vibes of the first pic.

  61. Sarz says...

    Mari, your work is awesome *and* you make me feel justified in my belief that there’s no such thing as overdressed. So, thanks ×2.

  62. megs283 says...

    Mari is so amazing on instagram!! Her insights are perfection. They constantly make me feel like I’m not the “only one.”

    And I love that off the shoulder top and the embroidered dress! Mari, you are stunning!

  63. Noelle says...

    I loved this. I have such a friend crush on Mari and I love seeing how much of herself she brings to what she wears!

  64. Laura says...

    How about a playlist Mari? You had me at Missy Elliot or Leon Bridges…

  65. Payton says...

    I love Mari! I’m so happy to see her featured here.

    • Laura says...

      DITTO! Love her art and how it resonates with so many of us. Thanks Mari :)

  66. Anna says...

    what a cutie!!

  67. Ellie says...

    Fabulous!

  68. Laura S says...

    She seems just delightful!

  69. Veronica Aguirre says...

    Omg, I love her.

  70. Jess says...

    Please, COJ, do some posts on dating! I am new to it and would love to hear other people’s experiences – especially Mari’s.

    • L says...

      I second this!!

    • Caitlin D says...

      Yes, please! I’m newly single after a 20-year relationship, and I’m especially interested in peoples’ experiences dating after divorce.

  71. abby says...

    100% agree on dressing for the love of your life…

    when I met mine just before Christmas, I wore clothes I love and feel comfortable in – traditional Indian clothes in the middle of winter in Paris. I love the look and feel of colorful kurtas, even if they’re neither practical nor common in a city where everyone wears black, grey, and brown.

    I don’t think the outfit really changed anything, but I felt comfortable enough to be myself. and that’s the self he fell in love with :)

  72. laura says...

    Delightful! I want to be her friend!

  73. JS says...

    ADORABLE.
    I want a do over on my single years and I want to do it like Mari!

  74. Sadie says...

    Her handbags are fire.

  75. Faith says...

    I love Mari’s artwork (what a beautiful and perceptive soul she is!) and now I love her style, too. The Christy Dawn dress is my favorite—wow.

  76. sarah l. says...

    What a delightful post. I smiled through reading all of Mari’s answers.

  77. liz says...

    so cool! love her quote about dating! also the seamed tights and beaded name necklace are both fab. she seems like a total individual, which i appreciate. wish i could be her friend!!

  78. Kia says...

    An utter delight!!!

    • Amy says...

      A delight is the best word for her!

  79. Gabi says...

    This woman is wonderful! Makes me almost wish I were a man living in New York so I could date her :)

    • liz says...

      agreed! lol

  80. Lauren E. says...

    Omg I’m in love. This was THE BEST!

  81. Mara says...

    Love this! What a great style Mari has. I had to smile because I also have a fear of flying and listen to fun, dancey music when the inevitable turbulence starts. The worse it is/gets, the more I dance in my seat… to the point where my husband might kinda-sorta pretend like he doesn’t know me. Whatever works!

  82. Erin says...

    “You never know when you might meet the love of your life!” remind me sooo much of @tinymoron in instagram who is so hilarious and relatable!

  83. Jennifer says...

    YES!! Literally gasped when I saw the title of this article. I love her!

  84. Tara D. says...

    Thanks so much for sharing! I love Mari’s drawings so much, and it’s so much fun to meet the lady behind them! Love your style and confidence! :)

  85. Those. Blue. Heels. Incredible!!!!
    Mari’s book is SO GOOD. I recommend it especially for any big life transition gift, especially graduations.

    • Mary says...

      Those heels are everything. She wore them a few years ago during an event with Jo — and I was smitten with them then — so I’m so glad they’re still getting the wardrobe attention they deserve!!!

      https://cupofjo.com/2018/03/mari-andrews-book-am-i-there-yet/

  86. Angie says...

    Yeeeeesssss. I love seeing someone embracing the quirkiness of dressing with so much joy for clothes! All the fancy outfits. There’s something about overdressing that forces me to own my presence in a room – I can’t apologize for taking up space when I deliberately put on such a fabulous outfit.

  87. Pamela says...

    She is so fun!!! That’s the first word that comes to mind. Love your work, Mari!
