“I work in color factoryAnd I feel like part of my job as a marketing manager is to look the part. For this reason, a section of my wardrobe is very bright and happy. I love the long dress, and I love the striped, so when I saw this dress, it fit right. I’ll wear it when I’m touring at work or meeting investors, and I’ll wear it on date nights with my husband.”
“Honestly, I’m a very phased person with my wardrobe. When we lived in San Francisco, I called my style ‘French Fisherman’ and I wore a beanie and canvas pants. Then there was a season when I traveled to Tokyo, I got into Japanese style and bought all my clothes from Muji.” Nowadays, I am inspired by Sienna MillerHis minimalist style and ’90s Meg Ryan look.”
“When I was pregnant with my daughter, who is now eight months, I wore overalls all the time. If you’re running errands but want to feel cared for, here’s your outfit. And I always wear ruffled shirts underneath; I love this contrast between the subtleties and denim spines.”

“75% of my clothes are from stores, and 25% are from second-hand. In thrift stores I’d just look for denim, cotton or linen, versus synthetic fibers. Otherwise you could get stuck in the store forever. I also like the men’s sections because they are less selective – I found this oversized men’s chambray shirt for $4.”
“My father died suddenly last June. That night was etched in my memory because I was excited – my brother had just come, and we were going to celebrate his birthday with burgers and a big bottle of champagne. The sky was bright blue. My husband had his stereo outside playing this French radio station It’s called FIP. Our kids were sitting on the playmat. Then I got a call from my mom, she said to me, it doesn’t look good. At that moment, a lot of weird things are running through your mind. I was supposed to leave for a business trip the next day And I immediately said, Who is going to run that business trip?”
“I became the real person who connected the whole family. I was so calm. Nothing was real, I felt like I was in a movie. The first time I cried was a few hours later when my mom went to the hospital and they pronounced him dead. Then I was like, wait, What? Since then, this has been a surreal summer. Little things will make me cry and I will cry. At other times life seems perfectly normal. Then I hate that this is normal. His death still doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve talked to other people who lost their parents and said they feel numb. I have two young children who need my attention all the time and a demanding job, so I swear to myself. Now that it’s time, my son is back in school, work is calming down, and I’m worried in some ways—what does it mean when I can go out for air? Am I going to lose him?”
“My four-year-old son Linus tells everyone. His on-court start was: “My grandfather died!” But I get it. When someone asks me what the summer was like, I can’t help but say, “Well, my dad passed away in June.” It makes me feel Better get it out there. It’s like a mosquito bite you want to scratch – it hurts but feels good. It’s pain I want. It hurts so much, is that the phrase?”

“Things that make me feel better: Abbott Elementary He is very nice and well. My son loves Harry Styles, so we listen to his songs mixed with scary Halloween music. And you just have to get up, get dressed, and go out. And then I like it when people hug me a lot and say, “I’m so sorry, that’s disgusting, I love you, and I’m here.”
