On Saturday, don’t miss My Little Pop Up, especially if you have littles!
When furry footbed slides first appeared on the runways at Celine circa 2012, they seemed to me like one of those runway-only things. Fast-forward to now and they’re the only things I want to put on my feet. Because this season when it comes to heels, I really can’t.
Miu Miu shearling fur espadrille slides, $590 (such a splurge but that color!)
I started writing this post months before the election, but I couldn’t really figure out what I was trying to say about my struggle to find a place in communities. Then last week when it became clear that a (I struggled with whether to say the following, apologies to my parents and any children if you’re reading but, though vulgar, it’s the truth) pussy grabber would become our new president, it started to become clear. Suddenly, I felt an urgent need to huddle among other feminists and anyone else who values inclusion, acceptance, diversity and keeping their hands to themselves. [Read more…]
These photos were taken the day before the 2016 presidential election, when I thought I’d soon be celebrating our country’s first female president with this little girl, even though she doesn’t quite grasp what it all means (thank goodness).
When I thought I’d have a joyful phone call with my mom in Pennsylvania, who, though she suffers from significant physical pain, fought through massive traffic jams and almost fainted in 90-degree heat to see Hillary Clinton speak at a rally in Wilkes-Barre. Thinking of her disappointment is what pushed over the edge to tears when the election results became clear on Tuesday evening. [Read more…]
Pro tip: If you go to Farmer John’s pumpkin patch in Half Moon Bay, do not ask Farmer John if you can purchase a snack. And don’t talk about anything else that might remind him of those jumpy-house, Target-parking-lot-style pumpkin patches. It won’t go over well.
But if you just buy some pumpkins and mind your business, you’ll have a lovely time and maybe get some sweet photos at the farm. The teepee makes for a beautiful backdrop and there’s tons of land for littles to run around and get that energy out while you lounge on a haystack or in an oversized Adirondack chair. [Read more…]
Boy am I craving pumpkin pie. I live in the heart of pumpkin land so it’s been all pumpkins all the time for the past month. But I’m trying to reserve the indulgent eating for Thanksgiving. So what’s the next best thing to pumpkin pie? An outfit inspired by one, bien sûr! And if I were faced with the exceedingly difficult choice between pumpkin pie and this outfit, after some serious reflection, in the end, I would go with the outfit.
House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve Janella maxi dress, $175 (down from $250!)

As the weather gets colder and I think about wearing cozier clothing, I continue my quest to find clothes that feel like sweatpants, but that I’m not embarrassed to wear to the grocery store.
Bassike’s fall 2016 lookbook pretty much captures what I’m going for, right down to the shoes. In these days of the teen and pre-schooler, I’m all about elevated sweats—or just throwing on a shearling jacket over anything and feeling A-OK about whatever happens to be underneath. See more of my favorites below, and check out the rest of the fall 2016 lookbook here! [Read more…]
On day two of Treasure Island Music Festival, I was excited because I had added Neon Indian to my list of artists to interview. I’ve been obsessed with his songs Annie and Polish Girl, and when I watched his 80s-infused videos I was even more stoked to interview him about his style.
Treasure Island Music Festival turned out to be my first fest during a downpour. I had seen the photos from Glastonbury and muttered to myself that those people must be nuts. When I saw the Bay Area weekend forecast, I decided to skip Saturday and brave the rain on Sunday only. But I also really wanted to see Glass Animals, who were performing on Saturday, so I last-minute rallied and convinced my friend Jarda to rally with me. As luck would have it, he is also an on-again, off-again professional photographer and I had a pit pass for him. As you can see by the photos, it all worked out! [Read more…]
My husband whispered the news to me this morning over the head of our slumbering four-year-old (between us as usual): “Bob Dylan won a Nobel.” It was a meaningful moment that I’ll treasure probably forever because Kourosh knew know how important the news would be to me and had to share it right away, even risking waking the child and starting off our day extra early. Little things like that make me grateful to be in a longterm relationship, child sleeping between us and all. [Read more…]
