If you are a Gilmore Girls fan who has been living under a rock, you need to immediately stop what you are doing and spend the next two minutes and twenty-six seconds watching the trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life.
Winter, spring, summer or fall, Lorelai and Rory are just as caffeinated and hungry, Luke is just as curmudgeonly and Michel is just as wonderfully French and deadpan. The whole gang is back together! Well, almost. Gilmore patriarch Edward Herrmann passed away in real life in 2014, but his presence is definitely felt — and missed — in the preview clips.
If the trailer is anything to go by, the four-part Netflix event promises to be just as full of heart and quippy pop culture references as the original series. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiers November 25, but like I said, you need to watch (or re-watch!) the trailer below right now:
Elaine Welteroth is, simply put, cool. She’s the editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue (the first black woman to hold the position!) and has an impressive resume of beauty editor gigs at pubs like Glamour and Ebony. So it’s only logical that her apartment is as stylish as she is, and basically features a master class in how to decorate a rental bathroom.
Do you guys follow Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior? Because if not, you need to get on it ASAP. She’s the ultimate lifestyle blogger, with a site that seamlessly blends style, beauty, home decor and travel, plus a love for black and neutrals that speaks to my soul.
Originally from a cotton farm in Texas, Jacey moved to Chicago after high school to attend DePaul University. She started her journalism career here before moving to Los Angeles, and launched Damsel in Dior as a hobby in 2009. Now, her site is a source of endless inspiration — I particularly love her “Home Sweet Damsel” video series that offers a peek into her space.
Her outfits, of course, are always on point. (I mean, have you seen her closet?!) Jacey knows her way around a good neutral, but she’s not afraid of embellishment and incorporating trends that work for her, either. Case in point: her elevated Paris Fashion Week looks. Still, my favorite outfits tend to be her simpler ones, ones that make me feel like, “hey, I could pull that off too!”
Check out more of my favorite Damsel in Dior outfits below, and my Jacey-inspired affordable shopping picks to get the look yourself!
We’ve already covered cool girl hair, but maybe you want to be cool in multiple areas of your life…even areas where you might actually be really hot and sweaty. Case in point: the gym and your exercise routine.
Yeah, sure, we might all be tempted to hibernate and give up on fitness as the weather cools down, but when you’ve got workout gear that’s this fashionable, it’s motivation enough to get your booty to class/the gym/a YouTube workout in your apartment/whatever the case may be. If you’re anything like me, you carefully consider your personal style in other aspects of your life, so why should workout clothes be any different? Here are my top picks for stylish workout clothes for the fall and winter season — they’ll keep you warm on the way to the studio and cool during your workout. And looking cool the whole time, of course.
Scroll through the best stylish workout clothes for fall below, from tanks perfect for layering to quality outerwear and jackets that are worth a splurge:
Can you tell I’m super into neturals when it comes to my workout wardrobe, too? The key to getting dressed for your workout in chillier months is really layering. Try a classic like Lululemon’s define jacket over your tee or tank and under your winter coat, and wear soft and stylish joggers over your leggings (I love the stirrup trend, by the way!) en route to the studio or gym.
Though of course, not everything has to be splurge-worthy. Snag your tanks and even sports bras from shops like H&M and Forever 21… they can be just as stylish as Lululemon and Alo Yoga without the major price tag. A high-low philosophy totally applies to stylish workout clothes, too, and it’s possible to look expensive and chic at the gym without spending a ton of money.
I had such a fun, full, amazing weekend but it. was. exhausting. In fact, I’ve actually been up to quite a bit in the last month or so. Sneak a peek below, and for more, follow me on Instagram @abigailnora:
I love these Umbra shelves in my bathroom, and I am also newly obsessed with Jen Atkin’s haircare line Ouai. That wave spray, though.
This quote in Glamour magazine really struck + stuck with me.
I went to visit my sister Emma in Orlando! And yes, I brought + wore the ears. Because duh.
