I’ve made it a goal to spend more time at home these days, which shouldn’t be too difficult considering I am somewhat horrified of what I can only anticipate will be a wretched NYC winter. I guess you can call it an early (and easy to accomplish) New Year’s Resolution!

Over the past two or so years, I have taken on a passion for writing. Not this kind of writing that you read here on the blog, necessarily, but the kind of writing where I really allow myself escape, let down my inhibitions, and document my feelings in a journal that only I will ever have to see. It has become an incredible form of therapy for me, and something that helps me to organize my consistently jumbled thoughts. Shortly after, I took up a strong interest in poetry, and now I have begun reading multiple forms of literature almost daily. I am not patting myself on the back or anything here, as I do recognize that this is obviously a very common hobby…but until recently, I honestly could not remember the last time I picked up a book, let alone finished one. Now I want to read everything and take it all in at once. So if you have any great book recommendations, please do drop a little comment and share!!

My blog is primarily focused on fashion, but this is probably the most authentic expression of my personal style at the moment. Yes, I still go out in public, and try to dress well when I do, but at the same time, I am quite comfortable these days bundled up with my scrunchy socks, booty shorts, oversized sweater, messy ponytail, glass of wine, and a book (thanks to by dear friend Christina for giving me this amazing collection of love poems for my birthday!).

    Anything by Jostein Gaarder! He writes a lot about philosophy and ties it in with amazing stories!!
    Great resolution by the way! So important to take time for ourselves and to be comfortable with being alone with our thoughts!

    Bravo, girl. We all have deep pain and those of us who aren’t brave enough to.

    Meant to say those of us who aren’t brave enough to should give gratitude.

    Looks like a great way to spend any day. I know it might sound cliché but The Hunger Games was an awesome serious. I sincerely recommend it

    I think you’d love anything by Isabel Allende, she’s writes beautiful, whimsical literature. Enjoy, and keep the groovy style tips comin!
