Little walks to nowhere.

[Stoops meant for stoopin' on. Daughters of the Revolution dress + Urban Outfitters bra + Sam Edelman Louie boots + ShopBop Bop Basics hat.] As a kid, I had a thing for really tangible, purposeful aberrations in the landscape. Things practically meant for clicking little kid shoes on: stones carefully placed in an arc through […]

To the beat of your own drum.

[Nightcap Clothing lace jacket + Paul & Joe tuxedo romper + Jeffrey Campbell fringed booties + Dannijo purse + Gara Danielle turquoise necklace + J.Crew bracelet.] Coming back to Richmond is all about digging up old memories for me. It can be any(every)where—a guy I knew in 7th grade sitting at the table next to […]

If this is our last summer.

I just want to stay inside, wrapped up in a blanket, listening to Fleet Foxes and reprogramming my memory of the way I spent half of my lunch break today: waiting on a crackhead to count change with his claw-like nails so he could buy a bag of chips at the Price Chopper. Bummer. Instead, […]

Saturday brunch at Max London’s.

[Daughters of the Revolution dress ($9.99 new on ebay--high five!) + Banana jacket + Miu Miu platforms + Marc by Marc purse] Fresh off a road trip to Richmond, VA—I’m typing this under the watchful, droopy-eyed gaze of a lovely pony Great Dane. We’d packed our social schedule to the gills from Thursday through to […]

So long to the headstrong.

[Daughters of the Revolution dress---seen here in winter mode---Riedel stemware + and a bunch of bracelets.] I had a dream that I had somewhere to be and didn’t want to be found. I ran down the street to the gas station on the corner and waited for a girl about my height, with long brown […]

Caftan: Daughters of the Revolution

[Daughters of the Revolution Willow dress, $298 @Shopbop.com] Nothing says Spring more than cotton gauze. This image stopped me dead in my Internet flipping tracks. When you live somewhere like we do, once you have an inkling it’s on its way, it’s like winter never existed.

Sunset in a roadside orchard.

[Banana Republic jacket + Daughters of the Revolution dress + Kors fringed boots] Just as our fantastic, 3-hour long tour/tasting at Willamette Valley Vineyards was wrapping up, the wounded soldier pictured above was starting to pull herself back together. No, really—I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. But the sun was setting and […]

Bang, bang!

“Aaaand… you’re toast.” That’s no doubt what my credit card was thinking while I was blowing smoke off my “Place Order” finger today—when I snagged a few long-time ShopBop wishlist favorites that had shimmied their way into the 70% off selection. [A long, slinky grey Ronny Kobo tank dress; Dolce Vita white silk button-up shirt; […]

Shuffle: ON, Day 3

This morning was awesome. Song #1: Esthero, “Country Livin’” The first song this a.m. was a beaut—a golden opportunity vowing to make my morning easy-breezy. I couldn’t have picked it better (were I cheating and doing that sort of thing). Esthero is, as far as I’m concerned, the cream of the lounge groove crop. This […]

Best husband ever.

Today I got home for lunch sort of irritated and nauseous from my antibiotics. Rob had some soup already warmed up and let Eli run out into the hallway to greet me at the elevator (even though he is still undergoing his 10-day confinement/observation period ordered by the New York State Dept of Health after […]
