What’s Inside My Wardrobe: A Complete Closet Inventory

Three years ago I woke up early one morning, gazed deeply upon the sparkly baubles of my colorful closet and foggily pondered three questions: Who am I, what am I going to wear, and why is the theme song to “Reading Rainbow” stuck in my head? In retrospect the answer to that last quandary was obvious (and if RR is now stuck in your head, might I offer a soothing classic that will effectively obliterate anything else on your mind).

Olympic National Park and Seattle, Washington

Photo by Caroline Walker Evans After exploring Ocean Shores and Ruby Beach on our recent trip to Washington, we spent a day soaking up city life in downtown Seattle before heading north to Vancouver. And much like Olympic National Park, Seattle instantly felt like home. Here’s a peek into favorite finds throughout the Emerald City. Shopping, eats, and drinks at Melrose Market‘s Glasswing Clothing & Home Goods, Taylor Shellfish Farms, and Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room (Try Gravitas cupping for a coffee connoisseur, Shakerato Bianco for a sweet tooth). Take an in-depth tour and whiskey tasting with the thoughtful folks at Westland Distillery. Rent a canoe at University of Washington‘s Lake Washington docks. Forage for blackberries along the school’s bike path. Scoop up a fresh honey lavender waffle cone at Molly Moon’s Ice Cream. Stop by Batch 206 for Americana vibes and whiskey pickles (yep, whiskey pickles). Pike Place, a rite of passage when in Seattle. I loved Moon Valley Organics, Left Bank Books, and saki cups from the adorable Ting Ceramics. Drop by …

Sun-Drenched: Ocean Shores, Washington

Ten days in Washington State were one long sweet, surreal day dream. Our first stop at Ocean Shores unexpectedly introduced us to equine friends: Maggie and Milly. After an afternoon on the beach we were off to Olympic National Forest and idyllic Lake Quinalt for the best salmon nachos in the world.

Dog Days of Summer in North Georgia

“Don’t forget to stop by the garden on the way out,” my dad said last weekend, nodding down to rows and rows of emerald kale, Amish tomatoes, squash blossoms. We’d stopped off at his farm before embarking on the bends and twists of the road that winds around Lake Burton, to Lake Seed, to Lake Rabun. We left with the best cucumbers and tomatoes and greens which were shared all weekend with friends and family and each other as we basked in the Georgia sunshine and bathed in the cool waters of the headwaters of the Soque. It was a heavenly break from the stifling Atlanta heat. It wasn’t until sifting through pictures this morning that I realized the weekend home marked Rose & Fig’s third birthday – and also that this time two years ago, we were just getting acquainted with a timid, tiny, extremely incontinent puppy named Mud Bug. We renamed her Pimms Cup and rehomed her out of a short lifetime of apparent abuse, neglect, and starvation. Ever since her best friend …

With the big day two months away I've been surfing the sales for a few good dresses. And between an engagement party, two bridal showers, and all the wedding festivities, I'm starting to bring out every white dress my closet can offer (that's two, I think). Favorites on hand include old standby Lou & Grey and a Korean two-piece set from our local Buffalo Exchange, but after some window shopping a bit I've fallen in like with too many dresses. Last night I scooped up this lacy For Love & Lemons San …

Packing List: Summer Music Festival Glamping

Everlane backpack and v-neck, Lou & Grey shorts. Photos by Stu Haluski. I’m off to Washington, DC to kick off a week of champagne, girl talk, glamping, and killer music at Firefly Festival. Working through the details of what to bring on the trip, the bridesmaids and I put together a spreadsheet chock-full of festival essentials, tips and tricks, and a detailed packing list that is universally handy for any hot and humid summer festival – especially if you’re flying! From wardrobe to beauty bag to handy tools, this list covers everything I’m taking to DC and Deleware for six days… And it’s carry-on friendly! Save the glamping supplies and groceries, I’ve tucked every item on these lists into one Bric’s duffle and an Everlane backpack (more packing tips right this way). And whether the hot summer weather takes you to Firefly (say hi?) Bonaroo, Coachella, Hangout, or Ultra – and whether you’re camping, glamping, B&Bing, or couch surfing – safe travels and travel well!   JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.
