Hi there internet friends....
I'm sure you haven't missed lil' ol' me in the big wide world of style blogging and, to be honest, I cannot say that I have particularly missed you...only because I do not actually know you (if I did, I know I'd miss that smiling face of yours, your silly laugh and that weird way you eat donuts) but I can say that I have REALLY missed blogging. I like talking to my self, working things out in the open and maybe distantly influencing stylish ladies out there in the same way I am influenced by stylish people I see in my life. I found my self thinking about it almost every day, writing posts in my head as I went to work, catching my self posing as I glanced in a window, but I could never actually get in front of a camera and then in front of a computer to get all these posts out of my head and into the internet.
Most of the reason for my absence has been due to the fact that it takes time to acclimate to a new city and a new life, especially in NYC. Needless to say, I've been having fun, for example, this weekend I escaped NYC and took the train up to the Hudson Valley, and was able to get this little photo shoot in the gardens on the Dia:Beacon grounds.
Reflections of affection in one of the exhibits.
Reflections of a Flavin exhibit in a window of the Dia,
it looks like an alien, no?
I look pretty.....pretty ridiculous.
Lace/Chambray Top: Anthropologie
High Waist/Strait Leg Jeans: Also Anthro
Belt: Embarrassingly enough, Anthro
Recently, as I have found my self thinking more and more about blogging again, I started making all these stipulations, I need to update my blog, start with the perfect outfit, in the perfect NY location, etc etc... basically, using perfection as a form of procrastination. To use the bike analogy, I expected myself to start off racing in the Tour de France instead of taking a gentle cruise around the 'hood, but I came to my senses and decided practice makes perfect.
