If I could have one totally frivolous and useless goal in life, it would be to put myself in a position to sometimes wear formal wear. In theory. Because in theory wearing fancy gowns with sparkly bangles and gorgeous heels sounds like an absolute dream come true. In reality, Oh My God, why does all […]
You know that smell? It’s chilly and windy and the air smells cold, like something fierce is coming? I love winter. Not just for the carb-filled food and warm and fuzzy holidays, but for the tall boots, jeans, and a much needed break from crotch sweat. I can finally pull out all my absolute beauty and […]
This is awkward. I don’t want it to be, but it is. We’ve become the sort of friends that are only friends because we don’t know how not to be. After 13 years it’s not meaningful, it’s habitual.
It’s fall. I don’t care what the calendar says, everything tastes like pumpkins and candy is snack size, that’s how you know. And fall time means tall boots time, which happens to be my favorite time of all!
Prior to this exact moment, have I worn a jumpsuit? No. In the name of Gloria Gaynor, no no no. And yet, I seek them out. I add them to my style boards and mentally pack them for events. Like when I’m on the back of a motor bike in Florence or making out with a […]

I went into fall with […]

Sometimes I feel like I was supposed to have been born an Olsen. Like the 4th fat one, who’s super excited for her sisters’ successes, but has no interest in Hollywood and instead stayed home to work at a bank or something. The boho gene is strong in me. I have fun dressing up in girly […]
My book is due today, and writing it has been mentally consuming. I’m sorry I have been absent, but I wanted to take a second to update you on where I’ve been, because it’s been a pretty amazing month. First up, a peek at what I did while I was in New York City last […]
So Friday I did my own personal equivalent of the polar bear plunge, and put up the yearly photo of me in a bathing suit, nay.. a bikini, and it’s become one of my favorite traditions. It’s like a starter gun to my spring/summer self esteem, which needs to top off at a higher level […]
