Yes, it’s still crappy cold winter out, but like the Girl Scouts taught us–or the Boy Scouts we crushed on–it’s good to be prepared. So with that in mind, we’ve already started scoping out our spring outwear picks.

“I just let it flow. My fiance taught me that. He’ll get up in the morning and just write, so nothing blocks his emotional life. It doesn’t even have to be in sentence form; he just gets everything out, and that way he can function without getting in the way of himself, without being aggressive or judgmental. We do that together. Sometimes he takes that hour just reading, we’ll get out of bed and just read aloud to each other. He has so many books. Like, just books and books and books and books.”

Jessica Simpson, who graces the cover of New York‘s Spring Fashion issue, seems quite smitten with her beau, Eric Johnson, and has embraced his somewhat spiritual approach to life. Reading aloud, huh? That’s kind of cute. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
