Just because the ground is cold and the skies are grey and all signs are pointing you towards the 5-pound, hand-knit sweater coat hanging in your closet doesn’t mean you have to abandon all style for the sake of function. Let’s be honest, winter is a challenge for even the most seasoned style gurus — so many layers, so few colors and my legs haven’t seen the light of day since November.
Something about today — maybe the way I started it with Mushaboom by Feist — made me face these cold weather challenges with a renewed sense of enthusiasm.
A big thank you to my roommate Mica, who gifted me with this nifty sweater yesterday…
Style Rule #382938: There’s nothing better than a striped sweater.
I find when my day starts with a solid outfit choice, it usually continues on positive trajectory. Today was no different… I found Cava and Cava found me. Enter excessively beautiful photo of my gyro…
My taste buds are singing and my heart is dancing and even though it’s winter, life is wonderful.
Greetings readers! Excuse me a second while I brush the dirt off my clothes and squint up into the daylight — I have just emerged from a cave hidden in the deep recesses of my apartment, but good news: I am alive and well! Still running that academic marathon, but luckily I have a little bit of time now to catch my breath before the final sprint.
It’s times like these when I find myself daydreaming of the comforts of home — over the weekend my mom announced that she and my dad had officially started decorating for the holidays. Going home to me means weeks of being well-fed, sleeping in, crocheting holiday scarves for my grand children friends and family (because if you didn’t already catch on, I have a 70 year old alter ego named Phyllis) and focusing on a few personal projects that I set aside when the semester got hectic.
Tonight I thought I would share with you guys a wish list for some of my favorite holiday pieces, because nothing says productive procrastination like internet shopping while donning a Christmas sweater.
