What are you doing to take your mind off today?

I’m going to a yoga class with my friend Julia this morning. Then I’m hanging out this afternoon with my friend Will. Also, check out this cool sweatshirt my awesome agent Sarah gave me yesterday. I’ll be wearing it to march on Saturday in New York. Which is my other question: who is marching, and where?

Top 5 of the week: J. Crew

J Crew skirt—top 5 of the week

Here are a few items I’m liking from J. Crew at the moment, starting with this fantastic jolt-you-right-out-of-your-winter-doldrums skirt.

J Crew military shirt—top 5 of the week

A pretty great military shirt in a nice, faded khaki.

J Crew popover—top 5 of the week

I do like a popover, and this is a fun, sweet print.

J Crew denim jacket—top 5 of the week

I feel kind of bad including this denim jacket because it’s not left in a lot of sizes, but it’s just so good I had to show it.

J Crew faux-shearling hoodie—top 5 of the week

And finally: I am crazy for this faux shearling hoodie—in general, I’m very much feeling hoodies at the moment—and will probably have to make it mine.

Suddenly loving the notion of high-rise jeans

cher—high-rise jeans

Does Cher not look fabulous here? I remember being so struck by this image of her in the brilliant style guide Cheap Chic (which came out in 1975 and has since been reissued and which you should by all means snap up, as it’s a timeless classic). I’m very much feeling this look. It seems polished and sexy and new, even though it’s been around for a little while.

Frame Denim—high rise jeans

I like the solid dark wash on this pair from Frame denim, and it’s got a staggered hem, which is very of the moment.

Rag & Bone—High Rise Jeans

It’s tough to find a high-waisted pair in a boyfriend cut, but these—from Rag & Bone—are rather good.

Current Elliot—high-rise jeans

Here’s a slick black pair.

Citizens of Humanity—High rise jeans

I’m liking the grayish  wash on this Citizens of Humanity pair.

Citizens of Humanity jeans

These have a nicely beaten-up look.
