This is the best outfit I’ve ever worn. Not just because of what it looks like—amazingly over the top, colorful, in your face and so eighties that I’m way ahead on my Pat Benetar Halloween costume—but because of the story behind it and how it made me feel to wear it on New Years Day.Here’s the […]
My brain has been focused elsewhere this week in a way I never could have predicted. It’s a long story for another time, but the reality is, it’s Thursday and everything I hoped to get done this week has to happen today and tomorrow. So the above photo is apt—I am racing around to get my stuff done before the […]
This year kind of sucked in a lot of ways. And while I’m really into rainbows and light, a dark room feels extremely comforting right now. Lately I’m attracted to black walls, dark wood, deep velvets and the like. And I guess I’m not the only one, because look at all these gorgeous dark rooms […]
Sequins certainly have their place. I love a little sparkle now and again. But the bling tends to get a little cliche around holiday time, don’t you think? So I’m always looking for new ways to look festive in a non-obvious way. One idea is to hang around in front of some really pretty, colorful stained […]
I love an off-shoulder top. I’m cool with my shoulder and clavicle. And I was about to say that as I get older, I can’t say that about many body parts, but to be honest, the parts I’ve historically been insecure about are pretty much the same now as they were 20 years ago.

Fast-forward to now and they’re the only things I want to put on my feet. Because this season when it comes to heels, I really can’t. Avec Modération faux fur slides, $295 Joshua Sanders fur […]
These photos were taken the day before the 2016 presidential election, when I thought I’d soon be celebrating our country’s first female president with this little girl, even though she doesn’t quite grasp what it all means (thank goodness). When I thought I’d have a joyful phone call with my mom in Pennsylvania, who, though she […]
Pro tip: If you go to Farmer John’s pumpkin patch in Half Moon Bay, do not ask Farmer John if you can purchase a snack. And don’t talk about anything else that might remind him of those jumpy-house, Target-parking-lot-style pumpkin patches. It won’t go over well. But if you just buy some pumpkins and mind your business, […]
Boy am I craving pumpkin pie. I live in the heart of pumpkin land so it’s been all pumpkins all the time for the past month. But I’m trying to reserve the indulgent eating for Thanksgiving. So what’s the next best thing to pumpkin pie? An outfit inspired by one, bien sûr! And if I were faced with […]
