How to be Smarter: You gotta have rules for your own life. They don’t have to make sense to other people, but you need to have boundaries that you have created for yourself and will not bend on. There is no need to have a million personal dealbreakers, but there is also no need to have none, either. How to be Prettier: This is a great dress because you can wear it with a white blazer over it to work, and then ditch the blazer and reveal the cutout for a post-work happy hour.
How to be (less) Awkward: Sometimes, even if I have enough clean laundry, I still wear my bathing suit under my work clothes. During the summer I’m inside all day in an office building in the middle of the city, but secretly knowing that at any second I am beach-ready makes me feel happy.
