It may look all bright and sunny in these photos, but I have never been so freezing cold in my entire life! I must commend myself on becoming a layering pro thanks to my three year stint in NYC, though. Fairly certain that looking “stylish” is nobody’s first priority during the months of January and February around these parts. It’s safe to say that I put on at least 15 pounds of clothing every time I leave the house these days, in fact. But, c’est la vie. Seasons are awesome and, for the most part, I embrace the weather fluctuations. However, I will be pretty damn excited when black ice is no longer a treacherous hazard in stepping foot outside my front door.
Lately my go-to uniform consists of a solid tee shirt, a sweater (or two or three), a vest, an enormous coat, some trusty jeans (often times with tights hidden beneath), and a GOOD pair of boots.
I have never been a flats kinda girl but I am practical (usually). Safety first! I was running around the Meatpacking District when Jono and I took these shots. When crossing a New York City street is more like stepping onto an iceskating rink, having some actual sole traction is key. These Alexandria boots have saved me from many a disastrous, painful and embarrassing spill. Sorry to neglect you, heels — you have not been forgotten and I am very much looking forward to our springtime reunion.
