i don't know about you guys - but i'm pretty much over winter as soon as January 2nd rolls around. snow and cold weather is magical and romantic...until the holidays are over. then it's like the cold, harsh light of reality rolls around the and snow suddenly looks dirty and the weather chills you to your bones instead of making your cheeks rosy with cold.
it kind of makes me long for a life in California or Miami.
but don't worry, New York, i have these thoughts every year. it's my distaste for extremely cold weather just rearing it's sassy head.
so maybe it's sad to say my outfits in the coming weeks may become more practical. ew, right? sweaters? i cannot even. but i may have to resort to them. until that happens though, here's whats been going on over my epic vacation since i left New York almost 3 weeks ago...
live colorfully. pants, J.Crew. leopard print shirt, J.Crew
going to meet an old friend's brand new baby! leggings w/ leather panels, doo.ri. silk top, unknown. booties, NYLA.
a great Christmas gift from my mother - leopard print TOMs! they are lined with a thin layer of sherpa-ish fur. they're great.
all right, so admittedly, not a lot. it's vacation, you know?
what i've been listening to...
- Video Games - Lana Del Ray
- Blue Jeans - Lana Del Ray
- Stereo Love - Kaitlyn Rosenbaum
- Hold On - The Chain Gang of 1974
- Midnight City - M83
- Down on Me - Jeremih, 50 Cent
- Sixteen - Iggy Pop
so Lana Del Ray was my little musical discovery over my vacation. i'm IN LOVE.
i return to Manhattan tomorrow with a lot on my plate. 1. back to work. ew. 2. starting my chrono-nutrition diet, which i'll be talking about frequently on here. 3. so much to do with grad school applications. statements of intent to write, GRE to study for and rock, letters of recommendation, etc. 4. Soulcyle and Bikram. lots on the plate!
2012 is going to be a big year. not to get all lame on you, but my horoscope for the year said that start in October of 2012, i'll be committing to a radical change that will alter the course of my life for the next 30 years. and i kind of believe that. upward and onward. i've got big plans and this year i'm doing them. gone are the days of coasting. time to alter the course.
and be chic while doing it! obvs.
