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.

The cold never bothered me anyway…

snowy styleActually, the title of this post is a total lie. The cold does bother me. But I felt compelled to make a Frozen reference. If you’ve been watching the news, or reading your FB feed, or living anywhere in America, you will know that it has been cold and snowy. So multiple layers are necessary.

I am wearing two pairs of stockings, I pair of regular sheer tights, two pairs of socks, legwarmers, and about three tops. I was prepared.

And I’m Back

winter styleHappy New Year all! Thanks for being patient when I took a few days off.

Honestly, this is my least favorite time of year to be blogging. It is ridiculously cold and all I want to do is wrap up in my sleeping bag coat and sit inside. But, I will get through it — just like I do every year, amiright?? If anything, this blog keeps me from looking like a ragamuffin from Jan to April!

Holidays in the Flatiron District

fall winter fashionMatt and I went shopping in the Flatiron District yesterday. In hindsight, choosing one of the most popular shopping districts on one of the last weekends before Christmas to do some browsing probably wasn’t our best decision. But it was still lovely.

On the High Line

fall fashionSunday was the first freezing cold day in NYC. However, I still had every intention of dressing up like a tenured teacher and shooting on the High Line. I think I have the teacher outfit down, but the wind and the weird light made shooting on the High Line not as great as previously imagined. But, fate smiled on us and we found some gorgeous Fall trees that shielded the wind and filtered the light. So yeah, it ended up being a success.

Hittin’ the streets

skinny jeans, blazer and booties

I was having a bit of a “bad face/hair day” when these photos were taken. For some reason, the weather was crazy humid and it made my skin so darn greasy, and my hair even more frizzy. So I have a bit of a sad face in some of these photos because I was feeling sorry for myself.

Also, it may look like I am standing in the middle of a busy intersection, risking my life for the perfect photo — but I am not! I am actually standing on a crosswalk in front a closed road that leads into Central Park. So fancy.

Dinosaur BBQ or Bust!

everyday chambraySome people might try and tell you otherwise, but the best place to go for a boozy Sunday brunch is Dinosaur BBQ right here in sunny Harlem, NYC. Saturday is a good day to get a light, fancy brunch at some rooftop hotel, but Sunday is a whole different ballgame. You probably need something to soak up whatever debauchery occurred on Saturday night — and tiny, banana-infused cinnamon scones probably aren’t going to do it. Ribs, on the other hand? Ribs are the answer.

These photos were captured literally steps away from Dinosaur BBQ. The restaurant opens at 12 noon on Sunday. It is best to get there at 11:55 to ensure you get optimal seating. People are serious about their Sunday BBQ and the mid-afternoon Dino BBQ line is no joke.

(Side note: It may look like I am standing the middle of the street in these photos. But I am actually on a pedestrian walkway/”parking lot”. Safety first.)sunday brunch outfit

Big Apple Prep

preppyIt’s rare that I shoot in iconic NYC places like the theater district. The theaters are near Times Square, and Times Square is basically a square mile of hell that should be avoided at all costs. We happened to be in the neighborhood, and we miraculously found a quiet block to shoot some photos.

Now let me tell you. This location was quiet for approximately five minutes. You can’t tell from these photos but, and I kid you not, about 5 feet away from me this group of people were arguing. One lady stood between me and Matt for about two minutes yelling at a man in the street. She was completely oblivious to the fact that he was trying taking photos.

It was kind of uncomfortable, but this turned out to be a great photo location. Despite the random argument.
