Radio Silence

I’ve started this “I’m back…I think” entry so many times, but I’ve been stuck because it’s been about a year and a half and how does one even begin to account for that gap? I never finish, though, because either my job gets very busy, my toddler goes through a very “meltdown-y” phase, I’m focusing […]

Lipstick: A Clean Beauty Odyssey

My “clean beauty” journey has been slow-going, but I’m kind of embracing that. I know it’s not as impressive (or Insta-friendly) as a wholesale all-at-once transformation, but I like it because I can really soak in information and make guided, meaningful changes that actually stick.

In Search of Adventure Shoes

I am pretty liberal, even radical, when it comes to politics. But when it comes to shoes, I’m pretty conservative. You look at my shoe wardrobe — which has changed a lot since moving back to the Midwest, away from NYC and become a mama — and you’ll see nothing but black. (And okay, maybe […]

Mom Essential: The Sweatshirt Dress

My love for sweatshirts both humble and elevated is well-documented on this blog. Comfortable, unpretentious, street-savvy and newly hip, it’s one of my central fashion convictions that there’s a sweatshirt for anyone and everyone. So you can imagine how enthusiastic I was about the idea of a sweatshirt dress. Just make a sweatshirt longer and, […]
