I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m not really in need of anything when it comes to my fall wardrobe. But that doesn’t mean I don’t daydream about beautiful clothing! Here are 6 things at the very top of my autumn wish list.
1. Sage military jacket. Functional, fitted, and stylish. Worn as outerwear, musky green becomes a neutral I can pair with pretty much anything, though it would…

This fiery redhead is a force to be reckoned with! World, meet the beautiful Madeleine, a Mount Holyoke senior who spent this past semester studying abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland. I amSO excited to be featuring her. She’s intelligent, quick-witted, and a huge theatre fanatic, just…
During my last visit to Boston, my partner Pavel and I spent the better part of a day wandering through the stalls of Haymarket Square (such colorful produce!) and meandering around the North End. I was born and raised in Massachusetts, so needless to say, Boston is one of my favorite cities. It’s much smaller than New York or Chicago, but it has a historical vibe and New England charm that I…
Life begins all over again in the fall.
I’ve heard that phrase numerous times throughout my life, though I’ve noticed that as I get older, the frequency with which it’s thrown around increases as well. Perhaps it has something to do with growing up — the wisdom that, as we age, we learn how to work withthe time we have, rather than push back against it. Maybe this is why I view autumn as an…

Happy Femme Friday, everybody! Today’s featured femme is the sizzling Gabriella Christian-Solá, who dazzled at her shoot in a geometric maxi dress, denim jacket, and standout jewelry.

Name: Tamar Westphal
Location: Chicago, IL
As the founder of Mount Holyoke’s femme organization on campus, Femmepowered, Tamar has long been on my list of femmes to feature on Style Queery. Luckily for me, she paid her alma mater a visit earlier this semester, and we were able to sit down, catch up, and talk all things femme. She chose to wear a bright ensemble of purple and…
Some of you might have noticed that my blog has been on something of a hiatus these past few months. I apologize profusely for completely disappearing like that! The last few months of undergrad were pretty hectic: I finished my (144-page) thesis, finalized my post-grad plans, wrote curriculum for my summer teaching position at Yale, graduated Magna Cum Laude with High Honors…
The Boat by LiorY
Be gentle with me, new love.
Treat me tenderly.
I need the gentle touch,
the soft voice,
the candlelight after nine.
There’s been so many who didn’t understand
so give me all the love I see in your timid eyes
but give it gently
Rod McKuen, Listen to the Warm
Thought I’d found this with you. Whoops.
Somehow missed the memo on this one…
I miss you so much.
You are still in my dreams
(which haven’t quite caught up to reality,
since there we are in love) —
I fear closing my eyes
to find you’ve disappeared.
I don’t want to
Being without you,
my eyes open,
Today the air smelled like
that first August night
when you leaned in
and changed my life.
They say smell
is the strongest form of memory,
but I’m so afraid
I would give anything
to feel your warm skin
as it promises me
everything will be
