black, white and graffiti

black and white dressI don’t have much to say about this look other than I am SO happy to not have to wear tights! WOOT! Also, this graffiti background might look cool, but in reality it was beyond sketch. There was all sorts of seedy debris on the ground. Could you imagine if I tripped and fell or something? I would have instantly caught an incurable disease. This is the struggle of a blogger, y’all. It’s deep stuff.

Spring, finally.

 

spring has sprungYou guys, as of this weekend, it is officially Spring in NYC. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the all too familiar smell of evaporated dog pee is starting to permeate the air.

I. am. thrilled.

It’s too early for shorts.

shortsI am so excited that we have gotten some warm days lately — but there is one problem. Premature shorts. I find it a bit annoying when people wear shorts based on the time of year, instead of the actual weather.

But this year I get the whole premature shorts thing. It has been a long and trecherous road to spring, y’all. So if you wanna wear shorts, I say go for it! Here is way to style your premature shorts so they’re appropriate for the weather.

At home

ruffle sleevesSo it rained all weekend. The rain forced me to take pictures inside of my apartment. Something I don’t usually do. Also, I was forced to wedge myself into one corner of my living room where the light was the best. This was slightly awkward. The upside of this indoor shoot is you get a great view of my dad’s rose painting. You can also see a giant photo of my mother as a little kid. She is so cute. Oh and all my books. This is about a third of the books I own. When I grow up, I want a library. So I buy all the books. No kindle for me, people!

Outfit Post Outtakes: Winter Edition

Winter has been going on for a solid five months. It is basically like I thought I moved to NYC, but instead I got lost and ended up in a large city in Alaska and no one has the heart to tell me I’m not in NYC.

I have been freezing my toosh off on side streets and rooftops since October to keep this blog chugging along. Let me tell you — I am so tired of seeing photos of myself in sweaters, tights, and black booties that I could just about lie down and die.

So let’s take a laugh break. Behold: Outfit Post Outtakes – Winter Edition

outtake 2You’ll notice a lot of these photos involve me in full-on battle mode with the wind. Here, I am trying to get a great photo of the wind artfully whipping my skirt around. It didn’t really work at first, so here I am wrestling the elements to get myself back into some type of order.

outtake 3Ah, here I am trying my very best to make a snow ball. I didn’t really participate in many outdoor sporting activities as a child (or ever in my life). Especially not those that involve snow. Warmth and comfort are my top priorities at all times. Snow is meant to be seen, not touched. Needless to say, I am still mastering the fine art of snow ball creation.

outtake 4You guys. ONE LEG!!! I ONLY HAVE ONE LEG! I actually never ended up putting this outfit on the blog. Mostly because I hated how this look photographed. I am not sure why I thought it was a good idea to tuck that shirt into my skirt — but that’s neither here nor there now. The other reason this outfit never went live is because I was so disturbed by this photo. O.N.E.L.E.G. Where is my other leg, though? This photo is so scary!!

outtake 6Sometimes the wind can whip your hair beautifully and make you the envy of all your friends. Other times wind causes your hair to poke you directly in the eye — not as cute.

IMG_0626This is what I actually look like everyday. My face has been frozen into a mask of sadness.

outtake 7And finally, I leave you with this.

Happy forever winter, everybody!
