Hi, friends! It’s another light one today because I’ve been head-down on a bunch of big and fairly exciting things (including the first round of edits for my manuscript) for the past two weeks, and haven’t had much time to come up for air. I think September is just going to be like that — which is fine! When I emerge in two weeks looking exactly like this, it will be October and I feel like everything will be completely different.

Anyway, here’s what I got up to this week…


The Heir, The Atlantic.

How I Learned to (Try to) Stop Asking Female Candidates About Sexism, The Cut.

Instagram Versus Reality at Failed Interior-Design Start-up Homepolish, NY Mag.

'Soulful Vanilla Child': When Pink Was Black, Jezebel.

How a shoe that looks like a sock became the working woman’s obsession, The Goods / Vox.

What’s the Difference Between Anxiety and Ambition?, The Cut.

It’s Okay To Set Boundaries With Your Anxious Friends, Nylon.

My Tiny Gold Hoop Earrings Are $20 and Meant for Newborn Babies, The Strategist.

Admit It, You’re Humming Succession’s Theme Song Right Now, Vulture.


I’m in a “I’d like to buy an entirely new fall/winter wardrobe” mood right now, but so far, I’ve only bought a (third) pair of J. Crew’s Point Sur cropped pants in natural because they are on sale, and they are so goddamn comfortable.

Have a great Sunday! ☕️
