Snuggly Layers

winter styleDespite the title, in my head I am calling this my ‘sick post’ as both me and my hubby were super sick with terrible colds when these photos were taken. We peeled ourselves off the coach long enough to get some fresh air on the roof and snap some shots. I can’t say the excursion made us feel any better, but it was fun!

Prep-in for Fall

preppy fall lookWhenever Fall rolls around my style gets about a thousand times preppier. What can I say? Cable knits and button downs are much warmer than more edgy options.IMG_6314

Casual Critters

casualI am trying to wear a lot of green this week in honor of St. Paddy’s. Also, anyone else really, really looking forward to finally wearing a sundress or something that isn’t a sweater?? Cuz I am so ready for Spring/Summer outfits.

Balcony Diaries

fallOkay, so I am a little bit obsessed with my balcony. Even though it is just a concrete slab with a guard rail and two camping chairs that serve  as decor, I happen to think it is very fancy. These lovely Fall days are a perfect time to sit out on the balcony and do some reading and some (responsible — hello! balcony safety, people!) drinking and also some smoking of cigars if you are my husband.

Time to bust out the critter sweaters

critter sweater an animal printsIf you know me, you know I LOVE a critter sweater. In fact, this very sweater I am wearing is internet famous from this post. This scottie sweater has been pinned and tumbled literally thousands of times. So I know you all love critter sweaters just as much as me!

Unfortunately, this specific sweater is no longer available. However, the J.Crew Factory has an adorable bulldog sweater that is just too cute to pass up.

By the Lake

fall prepThese photos were taken on sunny Lake George. I was there last weekend, and the weather was just gorgeous. Old Georgie really came through for me this weekend, as it is common knowledge that winter (my least favorite season) in upstate New York lasts from September to June.

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.

Giant Scarf

tweed jacket and scarfI got this gigantor scarf for Christmas and it is amazing. It is so cozy and chunky and warm and HUGE! My neck will never feel a winter draft again. And that, my friends, is something to celebrate.

p.s. I  never realized how big my tweed blazer is without a million layers under it.
