Kate's Picks
  1. Let’s start with the basics. I’m a born-and-bred San Diegan with a love for snow, because in Southern California we go to the snow; it doesn’t come to us. With that in the forefront of my mind, I moved to Minneapolis/Saint Paul for college in the hopes that I’d get some chilly winters and finally have …

  2. I’ve been a long time follower of DÔEN. Ever since I stumbled across their warm and earthy Instagram feed where I immediately fell down the infamous IG rabbit hole and into a deep bohemian love. If I was selling clothing for a living this is what my store would look like. If I could wear one …

  3. When you walk into a bookstore, where do you head first? The travel section? Non-fiction? Thrillers? Well, for me, the path is always the same: Self-help here I come. While I love a good murder-mystery every now and then, nothing can compare to the amount of inspiration that seeps into my mind whenever I’m turning the …

  4. Retiring your flip-flops and swimsuit isn’t any fun, but at least there are some consolation prizes that come with fall. Other than the cliché ones (fuzzy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything), there is also a boatload of new TV shows to dive headfirst into. To make your couch snuggling season as fun as possible, we rounded up …

  5. Look at her over there, sitting at the bar alone, reading the Sunday Times, sipping her second glass of Sancerre. What a woman. “Can I be her?!” you’re thinking. You can and you will, if I have anything to do with it. Whether you’re coupled up or not, a part of a close-knit pack of friends …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Look, usually I reserve the “Man, can you believe how fast the summer’s going?” small talk for waiting-for-the-elevator-with-one-other-person conversations but, “MAN, CAN YOU BELIEVE HOW FAST THE SUMMER’S GOING?” It’s important you notice how I’m not saying “how fast summer WENT.” Y’all are so thirsty to turn the page on summer as soon as Labor Day …

  8. Getting back into shape post-baby is something I thought about – but thinking was mostly what I did. Walking, being busy with work and baby, and life in general, got me 85% of the way there, from a mental and physical standpoint. But I could tell something was missing; I needed some time to focus on …

  9. When you’re sad and single, you are told to get on the apps at least twice a day. Additionally, the prior approximation is probably an understatement. It had been almost eleven years since I’d played the field. I had been in a long-term relationship that recently ended – and the guy I dated prior to him, …

  10. Let me tell you what ten days in the country will do to a city gal. It will change you. If you would have told me five years ago I would be craving a tiny home surrounded by woods or sitting along a lake, I would have laughed in your face! But life has a way …

  11. Almost gone are the days of late sunsets and endless sunbathing. Summer 2017 is nearly over and it went by in the blink of an eye. I can’t believe it’s going to be fall in just a few short weeks! Admittedly, I’m excited to get out my fall wares– boots and jackets for my wardrobe, cozy …

  12. Lana Del Rey’s “Lust For Life” has been out for a hot minute, but sometimes I like to just sit and hold songs for awhile before I can decide which ones I’m taking with me with me for the long haul. Kind of like how I wander around Madewell for 45 minutes carrying ten different sweaters …

  13. There’s a bit of a Goldilocks Syndrome to the beach towns of southern California. Venice is an eclectic mix of the ultra hip and the ultra hippie. Malibu, a scenic winding drive north on Route 1, is celebrity central, where you try not to swerve into the ocean while wondering which palace houses Beyoncé and those babies. …
