White Out


Hi friends! Long time no blog. I hope if you are reading this you are somewhere sunny and warm and not suffering through weeks of April showers. I’m 100% ready for May flowers now, thank you.

Anyway, I’m ready for warm weather even if it isn’t ready for me, so yesterday, during a cloudy-but-dry day, I busted out this all-white outfit that reminds me of something I would’ve worn as a child in the 90s, but just slightly more sophisticated. This was confirmed when my little (10-year-old) sister asked if I thought Forever 21 sold the same shirt in her size.

I did get a lot of compliments on the popsicle shirt ($9 well spent) and mother nature was kind enough not to rain on my definitely-sheer-when-wet ensemble, and I found a dress for my graduation ceremony, so I’d say it was a pretty great day.

Is it spring yet? Complaints about winter and tips on layering

  
I am so sick of this dreary, cloudy, snowy, rainy, icy weather. I’ve been hiding out in my apartment eating pizza and watching Pretty Little Liars, but this weekend I braved the slush to go run some errands. 

Suggestion for keeping warm when it’s below freezing where you live: go to the Bahamas. Pack only swim suits. So warm.

Slightly more serious suggestion: wear several thin layers under your clothes. I recommend Uniqlo heat tech shirts, which are thin but still very warm. I also wear tights under my jeans when it’s extra cold and windy.

You Fit Me Better Than My Favorite Sweater

2015-11-18 10.28.11

I have three final papers I should be writing now, but I’m taking a quick break to present you with something more important—my new favorite sweater.  Yes, these papers will determine whether or not I graduate and never have to take another class again after this Monday, but just look at the little clouds on this sweater.

If you’ve been reading my blog or following me on Instagram, you know I really love clouds, and you may have heard me complain that most cloud print clothes are made for babies.  So when I saw this cloud print sweater from Press Fashions, I got really excited.  I ordered it immediately and tracked the package obsessively online.

When I put this outfit together, I prepared myself for all the compliments I’d get on the sweater, but everyone was really crazy for the boots.  I bought them a few years ago (I think at Marshall’s) and they’re still in pretty good shape considering they were like $30.   But hey, eyes up here on the sweater!

To anyone else suffering through finals and procrastinating on papers, I wish you the best of luck!  Get lots of sleep, take a warm bath, stay hydrated, and remember there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.  Happy studying!

Back to Black 





 It’s been weird adjusting to being back in New York.  And not just to the time difference – although that did have me waking up at five in the morning for at least a week while my body got used to a different time zone.  I miss Paris even more than I thought I would.  But I’m finally starting to get used to New York again, which includes slowly transitioning back into wearing way too much black and denim.  If you’ve been keeping up with my blog or Instagram, you may have noticed that I’ve been flittering around in pastel skirts and bright sundresses, and that’s all fine and good for summer.  But I’m excited for fall, not for the pumpkin spice lattes that will now contain real, actual pumpkin, but for all of the black sweaters and velvet leggings that I’ll be able to wear once it’s cold.  Until then, I’m sticking to sheer tops to survive the New York heat.

Xoxo,
