Okay, 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.

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

Have y’all seen that Tommy Hilfiger commercial where everyone is all dressed up in their most preppy duds and they are dancing around at what appears to be a moderately fun house party? Yea, well I am hoping this outfit will gain me admission to that moderately fun party. Then, in the morning, I will meet Daphne at the Club to nurse my hangover with a bloody Mary brunch. After brunch I will put on my tennis whites and pretend to play tennis, but really I will just sit on the Club’s south-view veranda and drink more.
Back to reality, you can tell by these photos that my hair is CRAZY dry (it gets that way sometimes — esp in the winter). I am going to try my first at-home protein treatment today. So I will let you know how it goes!

When I put on this outfit I was all like, “Oh, this is basically the quintessential preppy girl uniform.” All I am missing is a monogram somewhere. I will pick up something monogrammed for the next time I wear this. Maybe a scarf? I actually did order monogrammed pillowcases. So maybe I can put one of those over my head.
