Have you seen the new trailer for Beautiful Boy? The movie stars Timothée Chalamet as a drug-addicted teenager, and Steve Carell as his worried father. (The story is based on David Sheff’s memoir, Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction, and his son Nic Sheff’s Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines.) Mark your calendars for October 12th.

J. Crew point sur pants

Recently, I’ve been spotting women wearing easy drawstring pants around the city — a cool type of joggers that are perfect for trips and adventures. I’d love to wear this pair all summer, and they also come in linen, khaki and with extra pockets.

Formal portrait before dinner

If you have friends or family over, wouldn’t it be fun to take a “formal” pre-meal portrait? I love the idea of having those straight-faced snapshots to remember fun nights. (Side note: I like that the only smiling guy is towering over everyone on a chair. Such a little brother move.)

Brick by Joshua David Stein and Julia Rothman

My friend Julia Rothman just illustrated the loveliest children’s book, Brick, about a young brick trying to figure out where she belongs. A school? A mosque? A home? The boys have asked to read it over and over this week, which is always the ultimate two thumbs up.

P.S. More fun things, and how to not cry when chopping onions.
