  1. Have you ever tried Golden Milk? If you happen to be shaking your head no, I’ll put it simply: YOU’RE TOTALLY MISSING OUT! I promise that wasn’t me shouting at you. That was just me saying — in the most enthusiastically way possible — you’ve GOT to hop aboard the golden-milk bandwagon ASAP. OK, enough with the …

  2. Yet another article in which I must confront a pain point in my personality. You know what? FINE. Whatever’s cheaper than therapy. (Literally everything. Literally, everything is cheaper than therapy.) When traveling, I’m a bit nuts about where I dine out. ‘Psychopath’ feels like a completely just and fit description. I don’t mean to be a …

  3. We live in an achievement-oriented society, where being “busy” is practically a religion. Sure, we’re getting stuff done, but we often forget about the healing power of sitting around in our pajamas and doing nothing. This time is good for us because it allows us to actually like our lives and just be. And by “just be,” I …

  4. I’m very excited to cross Vancouver, BC off my travel bucket list. I visited the beautiful coastal city when I was in middle school and have wanted to go back ever since. While Joe and I have been attempting to get in some much-needed downtime together and enjoy each other before baby #2 makes her debut, the …

  5. 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 …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. 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 …

  8. 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 …

  9. 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 …

  10. 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 …

  11. 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 …

  12. 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 …

  13. 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, …

  14. 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 …

  15. 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 …

  16. 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 …

  17. 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. …

    I need to start off this post by explaining just how hard it was to not write in Winnie’s “voice.” You know that voice, the one people use when providing their dog’s inner monologue or when you carry on a conversation with your dog throughout the day. Or maybe you don’t. If you couldn’t tell, I’m …

  19. If you reside anywhere on the internet, you likely saw coconut oil in the headlines earlier this summer when the American Heart Association released a presidential position statement advising against the use of coconut oil from a “bad” cholesterol standpoint. This advisory warning sent shockwaves through the news feed unlike any other liquid fat before, resulting …

  20. The most common question I’m asked is, “Tell me again, what is it you do, exactly?” My mom still doesn’t really know. And you might be wondering the same thing. I’m a designer, writer, business owner, mom, brand strategist, and digital media consultant. I wear all these hats under a brand called Wit & Delight. The …

  21. When you hear the word selfish, chances are your mind spirals into the negative zone. And for good reason. Over the years, selfish and its gang of synonym friends — you know, self-centered, self-seeking, self-involved, self-absorbed, the list could go on — have become enveloped in an unpleasant undertone that no one ever wants to be …

  22. Summer is the perfect time to wear out your blender, drink right out of a coconut and sprinkle your food with edible flowers. To turbocharge your smoothie bowl efforts, I’ve made a list of my favorite superfood ingredients. While I can’t guarantee their miraculous health benefits, I can promise they’ll make your kitchen creations sound expensive as heck. Spirulina …

  23. If Houston isn’t the epitome of a gut-wrenching nightmare right now, I don’t know what is. Something I do know? Being able to evacuate a city, not to mention the 4th largest city in the U.S. (it’s the size of New Jersey), is a privilege, not to mention a logistical nightmare. You have to have money, …

  24. Courtney Kates Garcia is on a one-woman crusade to upgrade your sleepwear situation. No more holey concert tees from that embarrassing band, no more University of Wherever sweatpants. It’s time to upgrade. As the president, founder, designer and everything-er for contemporary sleepwear brand Maison Du Soir, Courtney is determined to have women feeling, looking and – most …

    Learning a new language is daunting. I took 4 years of French in high school and haven’t retained much except how to say, “I like ham and cheese,” — a true statement if I ever heard one. After so many hours dedicated to studying language, why do you think the traditional method failed me? I did …

  26. I know you don’t want to hear this (I know because I don’t want to be thinking it) but summer is almost over. We’ve only got a handful of weeks left and I’ve got quite a few summer tops left to take out for a spin. While I’ve been living in blue jeans, dresses, and white …

  27. We’re past the honeymoon stage of summer. As the mosquito bites and flaky sunburns settle in, going outside starts to feel like a drag. Embrace your inner blahs by throwing an end of summer heat movie marathon. Make some cocktails, invite your cat and refuse to get out of your PJs. Here are some marathon concepts …

  28. When you live in the northern part of the country, summertime for me is about two things: being outside and hanging with my people. While I love our long winters, May through August are definitely my favorite months for hosting friends and family outdoors. But what if your backyard isn’t really the ideal space to hang? When …

  29. There’s nothing worse than a job search. Except for online dating. Yep. Now that I think about it, online dating is far, far worse. But not by much. The more I think about it, the more I realize how much the two things have in common. Job searching and, “man searching” both involve a few of …

    Earlier this summer I realized my closet was getting a bit out of control. Out of control in the sense that it was full to the brim but still left me feeling like I had nothing to wear. Ughh. I DREADED getting dressed in the morning. Subconsciously, I knew I had outgrown several of the pieces …

  31. If you ask me, there are very few things that sound more refreshing on a hot, humid day than a creamy, blended frozen treat. Whether sipped on for breakfast or slurped down in the afternoon as an energizing snack, a summertime smoothie is the perfect antidote to beat the heat. I should know, as there is not …

  32. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Cooking is a form of therapy for me, and while I’ll go to great lengths to avoid cutting corners because most of the time the effort pays off in the form of taste, there are moments when the effort doesn’t reap rewards. As we head toward …

  33. Man, what a year. 2016 – I mean, really?   However, I’m not only talking about the election – I’ve tried to live a life sans drama  – and in reflection, the last few years have been quite the opposite. I tend to be a bit of a hermit on social media – I am one …

  34. While there are plenty of ways to spice up your relationship in the sweet summertime, sometimes nothing can compare to getting the heck out of town with your significant other for a sizzling romantic getaway. It is during this time you can wave goodbye way to the monotonous routines and everyday stresses, and focus on what’s …

  35. If you’re a decor fanatic like I am, chances are you’re a huge fan of following all of Studio McGee’s endeavors. The married design duo that started their business out of a spare bedroom in 2014 has rapidly grown to 30 employees, over half a million Instagram followers, and a rapidly growing Youtube channel. They’ve now …

  36. Whether you’re walking your dog, traveling, or just trying to please your Fitbit, summer is the ultimate season to stretch your legs. To make sure you have plenty of listening material, I’ve compiled a few choice podcasts for you to add to your lineup. Don’t forget sunscreen! Bon Appétit Foodcast Chefs are incredibly fascinating people, as …

  37. There’s something very magical about filling a home with greenery. No matter the space or size, it seems lush, and happy houseplants always know the way to livening up any room. These little guys do everything in their might to lift our spirits, and yet why do so many of us fall short when keeping them …

    PHOTOS BY 2ND TRUTH & BLK WLF

    More often than I care to admit, I’ve stared at the walls in my home wondering if I can live with my decisions. Not the introspective, life-changing decisions one ruminates on in the middle of the night, but staring at the walls and wondering if I’ve made a horrible mistake. It’s not that I’m indecisive, I’m …

  39. Remember my last ice cream-focused article (are you appreciating my editorial range yet?) where I told you it was my job to pass along any and all life hacks to you? WELP. *DJ Khaled voice* ANOTHER ONE. I read this suggestion in a Lucky Peach magazine (RIP) awhile ago and I’ve been using it ever since. …

  40. I consider myself a well-traveled, adaptable adventurer. I have traveled in the lap of luxury, chartering a private sailboat with crew for two. I have roughed it in conditions far grosser than anything you’re currently imagining, living out of a car and a suitcase for seven months. All-inclusive. Developing world. Tent floor. I thought I had …

    Like many new parents, I was wondering if I had what it takes to be “good” at raising my child. From what I could tell, parenting was both emotionally challenging and physically exhausting. While I consider myself a person with substantial grit, I worried I didn’t have enough to sustain myself, my relationship, my businesses, and …

  42. We’re in the dog days of summer, and we’re looking for our latest fling. Traditional wisdom dictates that signs are best matched within their own element (Water with Water, Fire with Fire, Earth with Earth and Air with Air) but there is a lot to be said for taking the plunge and dating your polar opposite, …

  43. If you don’t want to spend the summer in the kitchen but you still want to eat healthy, then I have the perfect recipes for you. With longer days to soak up, I know I don’t want to be stuck inside longer than I have to be. But I don’t want to compromise healthy eating either. …

Here are a few of our favorite summer fashion trends for humans, as brought to you by fashionable fidos. If a dog can pull it off, so can you! Florals, FTW! Why Tails Will Wag: Sniff out your favorite floral …

  45. There’s something going on in the southern hemisphere that’s got the design community talking. One of the many benefits of this vast internet of ours is the close proximity to people and businesses thousands of miles away, and this fact has undoubtedly changed the way all of us make and consume things. Our team noticed an …

  46. Looking for a less Gwyneth way to chill out this summer, preferably one that doesn’t make you wake up 20 minutes early to meditate? Not to worry. I’ve compiled some low-key ways to cool down your tired brain on the hottest days of the season. They’re all affordable, fun and don’t require a license in being a …

  47. Brought to you by Artisan Books & Staub

    As Wit & Delight’s resident baker (as the team has recently coined me), I’m always baking late into the night, trying out new recipes in hopes of bringing in yummy dishes to share with the team. When Artisan Books and Staub recently reached out to see if we’d be interested in receiving Alison Cayne’s first comprehensive …

  48. I have had so many ice cream cookie sandwiches in my life that it’s pretty rare one actually makes me stop in my tracks and run across the yard at a company BBQ where I end up awkwardly waiting for the cookie sandwich-bringer to finish a conversation so I can ask him his secret, all the …

  49. With a one-year-old in the house, our kitchen can get messy. I’m talking messy here people. Things get left out, baby food gets spilled, and Joe and I can be a bit clumsy in a rush. Our kitchen doesn’t stay messy for long (thanks to Joe and his willingness to pick up after August and myself). Even if …

  50. I knew I’d made the right decision to travel alone when an elderly man from Alabama propositioned me in the Philadelphia airport. After a series of airline mishaps (looking at you, American Airlines!), our flight to Amsterdam had been canceled and both Larry and I were resigned to staying at the airport for the night. Had …

  51. Packing has been historically difficult for me. I would put it off until the last minute, throw a bunch of stuff in a bag, and cross my fingers I didn’t forget important things. I spent the past two years traveling almost every week for work, and it taught me a thing or two about planning ahead …

  52. Still dealing with breakouts? Or maybe they’ve started to come on out of nowhere? Unfortunately, zits don’t always go away when your teenage years do. But they don’t have to rule your adulthood, either. Hormones, diet, stress—so many factors come and stay in our lives that will impact how our skin looks both today and for the years to …

  53. As I write this to you dockside from Northern Minnesota (a highly recommended spot for consuming the below beverage), I have come across something we must discuss. Though it will be a brief discussion, it is dire. I am shook. Why are kids “tubing” on floating chariots in the year of 2017? They are gliding along …

  54. I’m guilty of selecting a wine based on the design of the label. I’m also guilty of selecting a restaurant based on its decor. One could argue this is research pertaining to my career. I designed labels for wine and liquor for years, and these days I draw a lot of my interior style inspiration from …

    I’ve interviewed a fair share of people throughout my career, and what I’ve come to learn is sometimes the story you thought you were telling evolves into something else entirely. This interview is one of those cases. I recently sat down with Erin Duininck of the GOLDEN RULE, the owner of a gorgeously curated makers boutique …

  56. Behind every strong brand there are answers to these questions: Why do they exist? What do they do? And, how do they make their mission a reality? Supported by a brand’s core values, a focused belief statement is essential to driving brands forward, keeping all aspects of businesses tracking along to the same long-term goals. The same rules apply to even …

  57. The dog days of summer are in full swing and I can’t think of anything else I’d really rather do than saunter around town on an adorable bike. I have a Handsome cycle that I love, but lately, I’ve been eyeing so many cute vintage bikes on Pinterest that it’s making me feel like I may want a …

  58. When it comes to summertime road trips, many of us share a familiar dream: to see America by car. With the breezy beaches in North Carolina to the epic grandeur of the California coast, the United States is home to so much magnificent beauty awaiting our discovery. Unfortunately, daily routines, jam-packed calendars, and a slew of …

  59. Happy (early) National Ice Cream Day! For those of us with a sweet tooth, July 16th is arguably one of the best days of the year, especially since most of the country is in the midst of a 90-degree heatwave. So you better believe most of us at the studio will be whipping up, buying, and consuming …

  60. Condé Nast Traveler magazine, don’t read this: I NEED TO STOP READING CONDE NAST TRAVELER MAGAZINE. It’s leading me to believe a regular ol’ average every-day vacation is sipping Chianti on a private island off the coast of Italy, paying a mortgage payment per night for a hotel. With all due respect to that periodical: lol no. …

  61. School’s out. Weather is warm. Government holidays are smattered across the schedule. So what are we gonna do? Gather with people we barely know! How are we gonna do it? Briefly and without adequate follow up that could lead to less awkward meetings in the future! What is it that keeps us calendaring the extended family gatherings, …

    They say to keep an open mind when running a business, because as much as you can plan for the future, sometimes the future has different plans. A year ago today, I signed a lease on a 1,500 square foot space (far too much room for our team of two) and crossed my fingers the work …

  63. I tend to think in absolutes. “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” “If your lawn is the slightest bit overgrown or maybe you still need to remove the winter-themed container garden from your front steps, then definitely do not go in your yard at …

  64. It’s full-on summer, and like any red-blooded American, I want to grill. A cold beverage, a contained flame, an excuse to stand outside and blast  Japandroids because they just get me. The “every day, a fresh new hell” landscape of 2017 has caused me to examine my entire life. Mostly: am I healthy? Is my wife healthy? I …

  65. BROUGHT TO YOU BY BABY DOVE

    The first year of your baby’s life is truly the longest, shortest period. The days (and nights) are long, but the months are short. In the blink of an eye, he’s gone from this tiny creature, unable to do anything but cry (and fill up a diaper) to a little boy, grasping, playing, and with his …

  66. Wedding season is upon us people! The weather is beautiful, everything is lush, and a good tan never hurt anyone. While there are few things I love more than getting dressed up to celebrate love,  navigating the dress code for weddings can be tough, especially because weddings have expanded beyond the black tie or cocktail attire. …

  67. There’s something about Amsterdam. Maybe it’s the charming architecture or the horseshoe-shaped canals or the laid-back lifestyle. The streets are lively and the people are kind, the buildings are historic and the dogs are off-leash. Whether it’s art, history, or hell, even cheese that brings you to Amsterdam, you’re in for a treat. For your next …

  68. If a good rug can really make a room, then two just might be able to transform it! Layered rugs popped on my radar this year and I’ve been playing around with them in the studio. Putting two or three on top of one another in your living room or bedroom really has a way of adding …

  69. Get ready to use those limes for more than margaritas! The last thing I want to do in the summer is layer more onto my skin. To combat the toll sun and heat takes on my face, I shift my focus to what I’m putting into my skin, not just on it. After one too many …

  70. If you’ve been following along with our studio remodel and my basement renovation, then you know how much we love Article. Not only is it Kate and Joe approved, it’s August and Winnie approved, too. The reason we keep coming back to Article for our projects is that they make furniture that’s even more stylish than it is affordable. …

  71. Hands down, my dad is one of the most frugal people you will ever meet. Now, don’t get me wrong, this 6’4” gentle giant is by no means cheap. But frugal on the other hand, well, this two-syllable word should have been his middle name. While many members of our family tree have constantly joked about …

  72. With Eid celebrations coming to a close yesterday, W&D couldn’t help but gush over the gorgeous fashions seen on women from all over the world. In this colorful recap, Ashley interviews three women to give us a sneak peek into their lives as they prepared their homes, hearts, and wardrobes for Eid. – Kate With the end …

  73. There’s something about summer that seems to magically put a glass of wine in your hand the second you get home from work. Maybe it’s all the patios you drive by or all the Instagram posts full of ice cream cones, but there’s fun all around you, and you want in on it, dammit. But if …

  74. White denim has been a go-to staple for a while. I love it for all seasons because why not break that stuffy “no white after Labor Day” rule. White jeans with your favorite loafers and a sweater are so good for a crisp fall day. In the winter, you cannot go wrong with a pair of white skinny jeans …

    I’m going to describe myself in two different scenarios: when I first start dating someone, and then also me like roughly a year into a relationship. Early, very-cool version of me: I want to be the most adventurous person alive with you. I could do anything with you and it would be the most joyous experience …

  76. This week marks the first official start to summer and it’s got me doing my 2017 happy dance. All signs point toward good days ahead, and now that the sun is finally shining and the rain has stopped (for now), the whole family is enjoying time outside to bask our pasty bodies in some much-needed vitamin …

    I recently did a huge closet purge– the kind where you bring in outside resources (specifically my friend Maddy and our Editorial Director Stefani) to help make hard decisions about what stays and what goes. There are certain categories I’ve done a better job at curating than others. While I had 10 ill-fitting white shirts and …

  78. Hey there! My name is Amanda and for as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with astrology and the signs of the Zodiac. I have a particular interest in the personality and nuances of each sign, and can most often be found at a party looking up everyone’s natal chart. For my first …

  80. This season of The Bachelorette is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Not only does Rachel consistently keep it both real and 100, but we’ve got a Pretty Boy Pitbull, a hunky gap tooth from WI (sigh) and now, a blissful absence of “whaaaboooms.” Why not make the next episode a party? Here are …

  81. It’s hard to find the right words to explain a day of public celebration and personal dread. (If Hallmark knew them, we could purchase them from tiered displays with labels like “Daddy Issues.”) What do you do on holidays when holidays are hard? When your relationship with your dad isn’t what you hoped, what do you do on Father’s …

    Everyone has a different definition of what “comfort” means to them. For some, it’s a bed full of pillows, for others, it’s a room where everything has its place. I fall into the latter category. I’ll furiously clean up the mess I created throughout the week with the reward of falling into a freshly made bed. …

  83. Summer is here and naturally, that means more sun and sweat— sometimes not the best combination for your skin. We need Vitamin D but only in moderation if you want to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant for years. To transfer my beauty routine from cooler to warmer days, I’ve found confidence in a simple …

    At what point do you start to babyproof your home? For us, it was about a month after he began to “crawl.” The Peters define “crawling” very loosely because while our baby is on the move, he’s opted for a bizarre barrel-roll style of transport around the house, which is both inventive and dangerous. I’m doing …

    Over the last few months, I realize that I am human after all. The long days at work and the longer nights with August are breaking me, emotionally and physically. My mantra of “head down and plow through” is no longer working. While I’ve hit this plateau plenty of times before, my strategy of “just get …

  87. Since this time last summer, we’ve renovated not one but two of the bathrooms in our house and even added a powder room to our main floor. You could say I’m a little bathroom crazy (and in case you missed it you can find recaps of the playful patterning in our basement bathroom and the more subdued upstairs bathroom on the blog). It’s a …

    Our house is really starting to look like home. That was the thought I had while looking around our living room last weekend. I had found a moment of quiet to capture for myself while August took a morning nap. There were no e-mails to respond to, and no Winnie hair to vacuum up– a very, …

I’ve hand-picked five that are not just excellent reads—they’re also full of summer *~vibes*~ that will get you in the perfect headspace for the season.

    I’m dating again. I’ve met someone who’s funny and charming. He’s in his 30s and has a kid, but so do I, so it works out just fine. He travels quite a bit, but never leaves without a text to let me know when he’s taking off, and when he’s landed. He is transparent about his …

  91. It’s been a while since we’ve done a weekly edit. I’ve been running full speed ahead on some really fun product development initiatives and finally feeling like all the work is paying off. Though I was neck deep in design work, it requires more time searching the web for inspiration– something I’ve really missed while doing …

  92. Reform has more up their sleeve! The brand that brings designer flair to IKEA kitchen and bathroom pieces that are otherwise a bit bland released a new line of furniture yesterday for your living room. And it is stunning.

    There truly is no place like home. Traveling for work always appeared to be so very glamorous. Fancy hotels, five-star expensed meals with clients, all the while feeling sorry for your co-workers who are stuck working at the office. Reality looks a lot different. Most of my “five-star” meals are a grab-and-go salad or an indulgent …

I’ve been collecting pretty scarves for a while now, and I …
