How Long ‘Til Summer?

When you live in New York, you have to endure four very distinct seasons: a breezy spring, a simmering summer, and chilly autumn, and a very, very, VERY cold winter. I personally do not like the cold weather. Furthermore, the grey skies, nippy winds, and the shorter days makes the winter even worse!

The only thing that’s getting through these last killer months is the fact that the weather should be warming up soon! Also, I’ve started getting emails from my favorite stores debuting their Spring/Summer collections. I warm up just looking at them!

As I was looking through the emails, Lulu’s cute and unique sunnies definitely caught my eye! I might just have to get myself a pair.

Street Style

The train my sister and I were taking to get to our class at the Fashion Institute of Technology was running late so we had some extra time to take subway selfies, yay!

It’s getting pretty cold out in New York so I only had so much time left to wear my skirts. I wore mine with sheer black tights, wool crew socks, and my new combat boots! On top I wore my coziest grey sweater. I added a black knit ear warmer/headband and my usual eggplant handbag.

Ear warmer/headband- Aldo

Sweater- H&M

Skirt- American Eagle Outfitters

Tights- DSW

Crew Socks- American Eagle

Combat Boots- Steve Madden

Handbag- H&M

Snow Already?!

Hey Dolls,

Today was just a regular day of school; I had AM dance class, American History, and English. Then, as I was sitting (zoning out probably) in AP Biology, I looked out the window to find out that it was snowing. Yes, SNOWING, in November! Personally, I think that it is still too early in the year for it to snow; it’s not even winter yet.

Don’t get me wrong, I looovee when it snows. I just hate the cold. Weird right? I know. I tend to get cold very easily to I have to bundle up with lots of layers.

By the time I got home, it was snowing pretty heavily and the wind was blowing it around so that it was the inside of a snow globe! It was picturesque, I had to run around in the snow for a minute. It hasn’t stopped snowing for a minute since it started, it’s a true winter wonderland outside because everything is white.

I just stepped outside for a moment to take in the crazy weather and saw enormous fluffy flakes falling quickly and dancing in the wind. So pretty! It’s wicked cold out though. I put on the biggest sweater and the coziest slippers I own and made a nice cup of spice tea, yum.

Stay warm New England!

Hurricane Sandy Hits!

Hey!

It’s been a rough couple of days for many people on the East Coast. We haven’t seen a storm like this in decades and the damage the storm caused was devastating. Thankfully, my family and I weren’t affected much by the storm. Many of my friends are without power, cell service and hot water and we haven’t had school all week. Trees have fallen left and right and live wires lay in the streets.

I’ve had a couple of boring days. I haven’t had school since Friday and we aren’t supposed to go back until Monday. Most of the time I just stayed home and spent quality time with my family. It’s getting cold as well so I’m taking advantage of the down time to make some tea and read all my copies of Vogue and Nylon that I haven’t had the time to read yet.

Keeping all of those effected in my thoughts
