Jill Biden Likes Fashion, but Don’t Bother Asking Her About It

Jill Biden does not want to talk about fashion. It’s one of the few sticky moments in her recent Vogue profile: the writer Jonathan Van Meter asks about her style, and gets shut down immediately.

Specifically, the First Lady “flashes a winning smile that says very clearly, ‘Let’s move on.’” Her communications director “looks uncomfortable,” but allows Vogue one small scoop. Biden doesn’t work with a stylist. “It’s all her,” she says.

Biden seems uncomfortable when asked about the Instagram profile that documents her every outfit, @drjillbidenfashion. She rolls her eyes. She wasn’t aware of it. Pandemic-era austerity and a desire to focus on bigger issues demand she play it cool.

“It’s kind of surprising, I think, how much commentary is made about what I wear or if I put my hair in a scrunchie,” Biden says. But she’ll give one quote: “I like to choose from

Hot Springs marinas getting ready for holiday weekend

Marinas on Lake Hamilton will be a hot spot for boat rentals this weekend. Owners are expecting hundreds of people to be in their shops and on the water this year.

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — On this Independence Day weekend, lakes and rivers in Arkansas will be packed. 

Jefferson Talbot, co-owner of Hot Springs Marina, has been in business for two years and he said this Independence Day will be busy.

“So we’re the new kids on the block and we’re still learning as we go,” Talbot said. “Last year was a lot of trial by fire. This year we are little more prepared.”

He said he is already booked this Sunday for the Fourth of July from people who want to rent boats.

“People start calling as soon as we open the reservation books, about March. They are already calling to get that Fourth of July reservation made,” Talbot

43 practical things that are so genius you’ll wish you bought them sooner

I’ll be the first one to admit it: I’m a sucker for a good gadget. As soon as I spot practical yet genius devices when I’m online shopping, I know I have to have them. It doesn’t matter if it’s a kitchen utensil or a closet organizer; if it makes my life easier, I’m sold.

One of my favorite things to do is check online to see which kitchen gadgets are trending on Amazon. There are so many things that I’ve never thought of, but I’m so glad I purchased. Take this wildly popular electric can opener, for example. It doesn’t seem like it’s that big of a deal, but over 35,000 reviewers insist it’s life-changing. And you know what? It is. Now I can open a can with a touch of a button, there are no sharp edges, and I don’t even have to get my hands dirty.

the 6 style trends we can expect to see this summer

Sky-high heels are the shoe of choice

While the rest of the nation has been reluctantly stuffing their feet back into real shoes since the lifting of lockdown restrictions, with heels a far-off notion, the footwear timeline on Love Island is significantly sped up. 

Sharon sported metallic wedges which are a forever-favourite on the show, but Liberty and Kaz’s strappy six-inch platforms are proving just as popular this season – by day and night. 

The rest of us might like to start off small. If you’ve been wedded to your Birkenstocks, block heeled mules or espadrille wedges will ease you in. 

Sarongs have made a comeback

In an unexpected twist, cover-ups made an unexpected appearance in the first episode with three of the five new contestants sporting them. Cover-ups they may be, but the actual coverage is in rather short supply – the 2021 Love Island sarong is sheer, short,
