We got your backs, B+T members. Don’t worry about where you’ll be heading to for tomorrow night’s date or for a healthy meal during lunch break. Thanks to one associate editor (hey, Sierra!) at Grub Street, here are some of the coolest places to indulge to your heart’s content — and then some.

Sierra says: “The owners of Smith & Mills recently opened a great new seafood restaurant in Soho. I love the design — French linen fabric on the walls, flags from U.S. Navy warships, and leather straps around wine bottles!”

Oh, yes, it’s that time of the year already. Bloggers, models, indie music and California enthusiasts from around the world are flocking to Indio for a weekend (or two) of music and good ol’ joie de vivre, otherwise known as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. This year’s headliners are very impressive—an OutKast reunion to rival the hologram Tupac—but let’s be real, Coachella stopped being about the music years ago. It’s about the lifestyle that comes with: the jean cutoffs, the flower crowns, and Instagrammability of everything you do. (We forsee a lot of Valencia coming to us this weekend.) And there’s definitely a kind of person you see at Coachella: celebrities, bloggers, Victoria’s Secret models… So there’s a lot of pressure to look the part when you’re dropping a casual couple hundred dollars on tickets/airfare/hotels/etc.
I’ve been obsessed with Winona Ryder’s style all throughout her career. Her use of menswear accessories and separates has always been so on point; from her boots to her leather jackets, I’m on board. Even her on-screen characters have been ridiculously stylish: Lydia in Beetlejuice and Susanna Keyson in Girl, Interrupted were really inspiring for me to watch as a kid, and although they’re very different people, they have an incredibly strong sense of self. Susanna’s wardrobe in particular seems to have suited Ryder very well with her shorn hair, striped, boyish tops and a BERET? Be still my heart.

Claire here! Very pleased to be sharing my latest finds on B+T and stylin’ them up in the spirit of celebrating shared wardrobes. This is Geist does #TuckandTell (cue theme music)
One of the best things about B+T is that you get to scour the closets of some of the coolest folk in the game. This Calypso cardigan previously belonged to Jenny of Markers and Microns, who, as many of you know, is too cool for school. I’ve been wearing this piece to classes as a way to give some movement to my more laid-back, masculine pieces; hence the backpack and boyfriend jeans. I expect I’ll also be pairing this with sundresses on warmer summer nights, definitely something to look forward to. Nothing like a little optimism brought about by a Tuck in the mail!
The Internet is rippling with news of Tom Ford’s marriage to his longtime partner, Richard Buckley. It took them long enough - 27 years to be exact! Congrats to the couple and their son, Alexander. #tomfordandrichardbuckleyforever
