Often when we jet off to a tropical locale, we’re leaving from a much chillier clime. The weather we’re met with is usually an improvement, but if we’re dressed for the cold, the transfer from plane to hotel can be most unpleasant. I’m heading to Jamaica for the first time—I am on the plane as […]
If the dad or dads in your life are as difficult to buy for as mine, I feel your struggle. I’ve been scanning the web, my inbox, and my immediate environs for ideas, so I hope I can be of some help. Some of the items here I included in my Forbes Father’s Day gift […]
Frida has a thing for Cheetahs. We’re not exactly sure where it came from but she likes to call people “bellybutton cheetah famous,” and we still haven’t figured out if it’s an insult or a compliment. So when I saw this pair of outfits from Nooworks, how could I resist? I never pegged myself as […]
In addition to this blog, I also write a denim blog. Naturally, this means our 16-year-old son intermittently asks when I’m going to collaborate with True Religion jeans. I told him probably never because everyone knows True Religion is for rappers. It’s a great look for 2 Chains, but their marketing team probably isn’t looking for a 40+ hippie mom of two.
It’s the tail end of Bay Area Dance Week, but it’s not too late to get in on one of the many free dance classes offered throughout the weekend. Salsa, ballroom, afro-cuban modern, hula, bandaloop, Bollywood and many more classes in pretty much every part of the Bay Area are still open the rest of this […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about marble hallways lately—the weighty feeling you get when you walk down them and the decisions being made behind the closed doors that line them.
Please come shop my closet next weekend on Saturday March 18 at Femme Fair in San Francisco! I’m cleaning out my closet, like really cleaning it out, and hauling the castoffs (which may feel rejected but still deserve love, please help?) to Femme Fair to share with you all. It’s time for a major revamp, and I’m excited to start […]
Imagine trying to keep track of an energetic preschooler at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art on a rainy holiday when the outdoor spaces where kids usually can run around are closed. Now throw in Richard Serra’s enormous labyrinth (an astounding piece called Sequence created in 2006) with its 13-foot-high walls, and you’ve got a recipe for losing […]
Welp, that will teach me to write posts directly into WordPress. I broke my website and in the process lost my previous two posts so I’m attempting to rewrite this one from scratch. Here goes: I have always been uncomfortable in front of the camera. Despite having this weirdo desire to document my outfits, and despite […]
