Duana Help! Naming our first born was super easy. My husband and I both have brothers and lots of male cousins that will do their part to honour family names. So there was no pressure for us to take that route. I opened up a baby name book, stumbled upon Nolan and that was it. Middle name Nash, easy. Full Article

I love a halter. I find it almost always flattering. And it’s very flattering here on Mae Whitman. Good choice too to have the hair in a topknot, which I also love a lot. I topknot at least once a week on The Social. A topknot, to me, is much less “girlish” than a ponytail. And that’s also a good move for this dress because it’s borderline little princess. Full Article

I love this little black dress. White stripes down the arms make it look like a sports top. The material looks so comfortable. And that’s a smart way to create pockets, non?  Full Article

So a couple of things in relation to the past few days.   Several of you wrote in to tell me that I had neglected to point out (in this post – click here) the third spelling of Margo/Margot – which is of course Margaux. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I love your column. I am writing to ask for some tips to tone my back. I am wearing an open back dress to a wedding in July and want my back to look amazing. I currently run four times a week and am training for my second half-marathon of the year. I also lift weights 2-3 times per week and on a good week get a long bike ride in too. Full Article

Hi Duana! I wrote you a name nerd question a little over a month ago and since then the question has morphed. I originally asked your opinion on Margo vs. Amara.  We have since decided on Margo but are now agonizing over Margo vs. Margot spelling. I think we both like Margot a little better but are worried about people mispronouncing her name as "Mar-GOT". Full Article

Hi Duana, This is a bit of a different situation as I am not the mother to be, but rather the sister in law to the mother to be. I was hoping in your infinite wisdom you might be able to help so that I could too. Long story short, my sister-in-law, we’ll call her J has had a name picked out since childhood, and while the whole family has always been aware of this, her cousin who is a few weeks further along and knows she’s having a girl has just hijacked the name. Full Article
