I admire people like Laurel Pantin who aren’t afraid to have fun with their style. Bold floral frocks, quirky socks, and flashy sequin skirts are part of her everyday repertoire (I am diligently working on adding all of the above to my sartorial rotation and Laurel is probably the reason I’m currently sporting a striped track pant and printed sock combo.) Laurel’s also the Editorial & Fashion Director at Coveteur, which is no small feat. I think we can all learn a thing or two from someone who can style bold items so effortlessly even while pregnant (!!!). I found it refreshing to learn that even a woman this stylish, still found herself surprised by the nuances of dressing a bump. Here is a little insight into how this pro is making it work!
“This is my favorite coat that I own! I had been coveting this style Acne coat forever and then found this version with shearling on the outside (which I had never seen). I immediately fell in love and haven’t taken it off since. Just kidding! (Kind of) Underneath – just a cozy turtleneck, a personal wardrobe staple, my favorite Converse that have seen me through pretty much everything and these great vintage trousers I found at a thrift store in LA . To be honest it was less of a thrift store and more just this woman selling things out of her house in Silver Lake that I happened to walk by, but they were $7 dollars and I adore them!

Over the past few months California has been grappling with multiple wildfires, including the Thomas Wildfire, which is currently burning in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties just north of Los Angeles. It began on December 4th just north of Santa Paula and at the time of this post it is 92% contained. Thus far approximately 281,893 acres have burned, causing The Thomas Wildfire to be the largest wildfire in modern California history. Over 100,000 residents were forced to evacuate their homes and over 1,000 structures have been destroyed with a total of $120 million in property losses. At the fire’s height, 8,500 fire fighters were dispatched to fight it. Unfortunately Garance’s dear friend, Heidi Merrick, was one of those impacted by the Thomas Wildfire and this is her story, in her words.
