While tasseled earrings should still hold an important place in your rotating cast of summer accessories, the latest jewelry trend is a little more subtle. Resin tortoiseshell earrings are cropping up all over Instagram, available at retailers both high and low. Don’t worry, those bright tassels aren’t going anywhere, but if you’re looking for a more subtle earring with just a touch of the 80s vibes, shop my favorites above from Urban Outfitters (currently on sale for $30!) and a few more options below.
Living in Brooklyn means I only have room for two seasons in my closet at any one time—either fall/winter or spring/summer. So as soon as the temperature for the weeks ahead started climbing into the 60s, I set aside a Sunday to do my biannual closet season switch. By the end of the afternoon, I had all my sweaters, ankle boots and scarves packed away in storage, and now my closet hangers feature less wool and lots more florals.
When the temps finally got above 65 degrees I couldn’t resist wearing this little lace number. The floral pattern and flutter sleeves make me feel like a super preppy Stevie Nicks (is that even a thing?).READ MORE

In spite of my dermatologist, mother and every magazine I’ve ever read expounding how critical daily sunscreen is, I must confess I haven’t always been the best. I genuinely wanted to protect my skin but thought my makeup was coverage enough (spoiler: it’s not) and every sunscreen I tried was overly greasy or made my combination skin break out.
It all started after I broke my left collarbone in Ireland. (I fell off a horse and it was very embarrassing, I’ll spare you the details.) Ever since then and even after I’ve healed, I have to sleep on my right side…sleeping on my left means I wake up with an aching arm and shoulder. Unfortunately for me, our bedroom window is on the right—meaning I woke up the second the sun came up.READ MORE
Every year, crowds descend on the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to see the 75 trees on the Cherry Esplanade bloom into a riot of pink. Because cherry blossom trees only remain in flower for a week, the window of opportunity to see them is very narrow. This year, I made it my goal to see them bloom—and it was well-worth the trip.
Welcome to my book of the month column, where I recommend my couldn’t-put-it-down read of the month. Need more book recommendations? Find them here. Happy reading!
When my friends suggested a book club themed solely around murder mystery/thriller/true crime novels, I was immediately in. Appropriately christened the “F**ked Up Fiction Book Club,” Leila Slimani’s The Perfect Nanny became our April read.READ MORE
The last few days before a trip are always a whirlwind, what with collecting last minute items and trying to fit everything in a suitcase. My least favorite part of preparing for a trip used to be packing my toiletries—since I use everything almost every day, it eliminated the possibility of really packing (aka bag IN suitcase) beforehand. Instead, it always got thrown in right before I left for the airport.
Ever since I started traveling more, I knew something had to change in my packing strategy. The best way to get rid of that pre-airport panic? Keep a “go” bag ready at all times.READ MORE
One of the best parts about living in New York is the sheer number of day trips you can take. I’ve been hiking in Minnewaska State Park and explored the sculptures at Storm King Art Center, but my favorite place to visit has to be the Long Island wine country. While Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Southampton will always have a special place in my heart (it’s where Zach proposed!), we decided to visit the North Fork with our friends Stephanie and Henry.
If you’re looking to take a tour of the East Coast’s very own Napa Valley, read on for the ideal day itinerary.

I cannot preach enough about this dry shampoo. It’s cheap! It has an incredibly funny name! It actually works! Thanks to my regular highlight appointments, without proper care my hair quickly leans into scarecrow territory if I’m not careful. Enter Pssst! Instant Dry Shampoo. READ MORE
Photos from freshman year of college usually elicit some kind of groan from me—I had black hair with chunky bangs (seriously) and painted on foundation like my life depended on it.
Now, thanks to the wisdom that comes with age (but mostly thanks to tutorials, I’m looking at you Kristin Ess and Lauren Conrad) I’ve settled on a beauty routine that doesn’t make me cringe with regret.READ MORE
