Found: The Perfect Suede Jacket for Summer

Last night Ivan and I had one of those terrible before-bed arguments that leaves you feeling too worked up to sleep. The subject? Air conditioning, and the fact that we don’t have it. We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have only cool days so far this year, but I can feel the heat waves looming and […]

Transitional Spring Style: Wide Leg White Pants

When I think back to the Spring of 2018, this outfit and variations on it will be the sartorial image that most comes to mind. There’s something so appealing about the flowy, wide-leg pant silhouette that we’ve been seeing in recent seasons. It’s utterly wearable and forgiving, making it easy to feel chic and put-together […]

Transitional Spring Style: Oversized Trench + White Column Dress

It feels funny still to be writing about transitional spring style in May, but this year’s wonky weather patterns have left most of us still reaching for our jackets and coats! I’m never mad about an excuse to build my look around a key piece of outerwear, and this season’s oversized trench coat trend is […]

Transitional Spring Style: How to Wear Black + White Polka Dots

There’s no question that when it comes to patterns, polka dots are my absolute favorite. (Okay, leopard’s up there too, but animal spots are basically nature’s polka dots, right?) Think about it. Polka dots are an all-too-rare instance of everything to everyone: bold repeating shapes for the modernist, timeless panache for the classicist, and loads […]

Transitional Spring Style: The Lightweight Trench Coat

Lately, some of my most-referenced fashion inspiration comes not from the latest street style pins to make the rounds but from photos of my mom in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Not only was she a total babe (my parents’ love story is the ultimate science-nerd-gets-the-secretly-brilliant-cheerleader tale), but she had an air of understated […]

6 Weeks of Winter Style: The Lightweight Plaid Coat

Well, it’s mid-March, and it’s still a regular chill-fest here in Southern California! I’m loving it—I’m in no rush to get to those 100 degree days we have in the Summer—and I’m thrilled that my outerwear collection is seeing some regular action.

6 Weeks of Winter Style: The Boxy Cropped Jacket

Phew, that groundhog was not messing around when he predicted six more weeks of winter! When I shot six weeks of cold weather outfits at the end of January, I was worried that in four weeks’ time they’d no longer feel relevant. Yet given that we find ourselves experiencing icy blasts more suited to November than […]

6 More Weeks of Winter Style: The Polka Dot Statement Coat

Whelp, it’s official. I’ve been struck down by this winter’s latest scourge, the strange flu-cold-whatever that’s been making the rounds. Though currently on day 5 of bedrest with no improvement in sight, I’m doing my best to stay upbeat on my steady diet of tea and toast and Twitter. It’s all about perspective, after all, […]

6 More Weeks of Winter Style: The Buffalo Check Coat

On Friday, Punxsutawney Phil the Groundhog saw his shadow, destining us (if you believe the hype) to six more weeks of winter. Who knows what that means in practice, given the inconsistent temperature patterns that each season seems to bring these days, but at least in theory we can count on reaching for our cold […]

January Skin Savers for a Confused Complexion

Every time someone asks me about my skin type, I shrug and say, ‘I dunno!’ Because honestly, I’ve got a little bit of everything going on. I break out at certain times of the month, whenever I stray from my healthy eating habits, and occasionally for no apparent reason at all. But I also get […]

How to Wear a Camel Coat for Monochromatic Winter Layers

I’m writing this post on a plane headed back to Los Angeles after seven days in Toronto, and I’m feeling a little wistful about leaving the cold and snow behind. I know, it sounds like crazy talk, especially to people who have to deal with negative temps for the next three months, but I really […]
