Click. Read. Love. 3.4.22
Happy Friday. I’m back from Nashville and I’ll be honest the 70 to 0 degree temp difference was a little much for me this morning. Waking up and getting to snuggle Marin before school made it a little less harsh. I had a great day with ABLE planning for our fall collection and I’m looking forward to sharing more on that soon. Lots of great links this week! Enjoy.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

“But the behavior on display is, if nothing else, a product of a lack of sense. It’s the agitated, aimless buzzing of the type of crowd that gathers in the aftermath of some bewildering catastrophe. Social scientists have a name for this mode of chaos: They call it “milling.” We are all just chattering away in restless and confused excitement as we try to figure out how to think about what’s happening.”
Pro-Putin disinformation is thriving in online anti-vaccine groups.
My trip to ABLE was so fun and there are so many cute things for spring! They have also just increased their extended sizing, yay (my fall collection will be almost entirely extended sizes). This tee, this blouse and these jeans are a few favorites. Use code JAK15 for 15% off. For sizing I typically go a size down in most things.
Enjoyed this piece on how most American families give their children the father’s last name. As parents who chose not to do that, we still, quite often, get eye rolls for it. In many Spanish-speaking places, children traditionally receive the last names of both parents. Maybe it’s time to re-think the patriarchal tradition.
Mifepristone could—but probably won’t—revolutionize a post-Roe world.
New research shows dogs may mourn the loss of other household pets.
I admit I haven’t seen Euphoria, but I thought this was an interesting take on the sexual objectification of teens in media, and the implications of adults playing teens on tv shows.
The twitching generation:
Around the world, doctors have noticed teenage patients reporting the sudden onset of tics. Is this the first illness spread by social media?
tw: pregnancy loss and sexual assault. Doctors’ worst fears about the Texas abortion law are coming true.
Just in case you’re sick of reading those 12 under 12 lists too…life’s a party, not a race.
Love this profile on the Williams sisters.
The danger in oversharing with your boss—and how to strike a balance.
If you’re starting to think about Mother’s Day gifts, I love my Haverhill jewelry. The birthstone collection always makes for something special. You can use my code JAK15 for 15% off your purchase.
A really interesting essay about the lure of the brownstone. IYKYK. “The brownstone stood for everything I wanted: solidity and urbanity, possibility and permanence. I could see it, stand inside it, even sleep there. But it wasn’t mine.”
How to support trans youth in Texas—the governor is pushing to classify gender-affirming care as child abuse.
Who knew that Ben McKenzie (yup, Ryan from The O.C.) would be the economics teacher we all need.
You know how normally recipes have a big long intro ahead of getting to the actual recipe? Well, this story about motherhood, in all of its forms, is worth reading…and will completely sell you on making the chocolate cake afterwards.

That was a great piece about last names. I opted to keep my maiden name but add my husband’s to the end of it, which is fine but given how much work it was to change my name I almost regret it (if men regularly changed their last names I bet SS would accept appointments for this purpose, instead of making people wait). Now I have two last names, separated by a space.
Our son has my husband’s last name, but my maiden name as his middle name. I didn’t want to give him a super long last name, and one of the names is unusual and already frequently misspelled. And then what would he do if he has kids, in the absence of guiding tradition?
I guess the TL;DR is I feel very ambivalent about our familial naming choices haha. It would be nice to have a tradition to rely on without the patriarchal baggage.
