It’s been some time since I’ve put up a music post—here’s what I’m listening to right now. Glass Animals’ sophomore album, How to be a Human Being, is fantastic—my daughter saw them at Coachella and said they were amazing. And I turn up Missio’s title song “Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea” every time it comes on.

On My Mind
My winter coats and boots are stored and I’m pulling out warm-weather wear. Clogs are in heavy rotation again, and I love the Gucci slides so much that I bought a brown pair. The Valentino and Balenciaga dresses, now 5 and 3 years-old respectively, are two of my top spring go-tos. And the Céline hobos remain my run-around bags. It feels good that the items I’ve invested in are still beloved and, in some cases, worn daily.
Even as a child I hated sitting in the sun and now it’s paid off. However, I do like having a little color and it may be time to up my bronzer game. Suggestions welcome.
The Row’s restrained and understated Pre-Fall collection is an ode to 90s minimalism. A trim turtleneck and crisp white shirt are even more chic in the hands of the Olsen sisters. And Zoe Ghertner’s pictures of Erin O’Conner are the icing on the cake.
One of the bangle bracelets in yesterday’s post is by designer Kendall Conrad—I should’ve known, she makes some of the best.
Jessica de Ruiter’s classic gold bangles (one is from Kendall Conrad), Apiece Apart’s pre-fall non-Breton striped top, and I didn’t buy into the ballet trend last year, however, these Chanel flats on Barbara Martelo could end up on my wish list.
Anyone else excited for the limited series revival of Twin Peaks? The continuation of the 90s cult TV show by legendary director David Lynch will be on Showtime in May—can’t wait!
The Hermès dress above and Loewe below are the kind of pieces I’ve been eyeing—they are stylish but wouldn’t look dated a few years out. Like the Atlantique Ascoli dresses and tops I’ve amassed, these two items would go the distance.
Story from Interview
La Double J. founder J.J. Martin sent me a floor-length dress that I will shorten to mid-calf. The fab printed sheath will be perfect for a bunch of events I have this spring—I just need a sassy shoe to take it into evening.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this image in AD—it’s from a story on Aerin Lauder’s family home in Palm Beach. I do a ton of container gardening and I’m also an espalier fanatic. This vintage cast-iron plant holder is right up my alley.
