Not dead. Just. Incredibly. Busy!

Friday, July 06, 2012

So, I never meant for my moving-to-NYC post to be the start of radio silence. (Just the opposite! I thought NYC would mean the resurgence of the blog! However!) But moving to a new city, starting a new job, making new friends (and catching up with old ones), getting settled... you know how it goes. I'm feeling quite guilty about abandoning this poor site lately.

Likely, it's only mom who's reading this now (hi mom!) but let me say that things in NYC are going swimmingly. Especially fashion-wise. Because have I mentioned that I work in Soho? With hundreds of shops literally at my (work) doorstep? For a fashion lover, it is overwhelming. It is also dangerous on ye olde wallet.

So what's got my attention these days? Well let's see (clockwise from top left):

1. Basically, obsessed with cream boucle jackets. Zara has some amazing ones right now. (Uh, I may have bought more than one.) I heart this one in particular. Goes with everything!

2. Country Living magazine. It's completely filling the void Domino left in my life (plus, given me about 100 ideas for the new apartment). I loved this bedroom makeover.

3. I love unusual statement jewelry, and just got this Metropolitan Whistle to wear as a necklace.

4. Target has the best pillows. (And also stationery.) But especially pillows! Mustache and monocle for $10? On my couch. (I also admit to purchasing the pink and gray Sombrero Dog Pillow. Because, obvs, I didn't have one.)

And there you have it. I'm back! I've missed you.

I'm obsessed with Country Living magazine! My mom has been gifting the subscription to me my whole adult life. She's been collecting them since the 70's! Love going back and checking out the older issues. <3
