comfers cozers on a lazy hazy day.
what an odd day it was today! i woke up this morning to the gentle pitter patter of rain outside. you can probably imagine how difficult it was for me to do anything besides lounge around the house wearing sweatpants and drinking coffee, especially since this is the first weekend where i’ve got nothin to do in a long while! the end of summer has been crazy and busy and fun and overwhelming, so it was perfectly fitting for the transition back into fall to include such a lazy day. and it was also the perfect opportunity for me to step outside of the vintage-dress-every-day mentality and back into the more versatile clothes of fall.
so today i wore a simple layered outfit comprised of a bunch of stuff that had been sitting in my closet since last winter, and it’s actually really reminiscent of a lot of the outfits i was wearing when i first started blogging and posting outfits on the internet some time in january or february. and it was a nice time to reflect on all of this blogging, and the direction of my style, and life in general. and i’m feeling very positive and very inspired to move forward and experiment and share and meet new people and la la la. you get it.
oh, and it was also the first time i didn’t darken my eyebrows with makeup in like 2 years. weird. and now that i think of it, i kinda thought i would never wear a plaid flannel again and here i am wearing it and blogging about it. HMM.

cheap monday skinny jeans
seychelles platform oxfords, gift from seychelles via the weardrobe conference
and can i just mention these shoes??? they’re seychelles
that i received at the weardrobe nyc conference
and they are easily my favorite shoes right now. i actually couldn’t believe it when i got them because i had literally just tried them on at a local shoe shop two days before, and i almost bought them but decided to refrain because i knew there would be more shopping in nyc… and voila! seychelles
, you read my mind! thanks guys!
outside gramercy park getting ready for the 6 hour flight back home.
i suppose i look a little self-centered by starting out with an outfit post before blogging about the weardrobe nyc blogger conference
itself, but all in due time, my friends. i’m patiently awaiting links to the flickr pool of photos so i can show you the most accurate picture of the trip! and to be honest, so many girls were snapping photos that i didn’t actually take that many with my own camera!
speaking of wonderful photographers, i was lucky enough to be photographed by the clothes horsefor this post! i must say, she has a wonderful eye for photography and i wish she lived closer so i could hit her up for photoshoots more often! oh, how wonderful it is to meet other bloggers in real life!!!
so this is me, standing outside of gramercy park on the last day of the trip. it was a sad farewell and i even got a little teary-eyed saying my goodbyes! everyone was so wonderful and down-to-earth. i felt so special being in a group of such varied and inspirational people. it’s going to take me weeks just to process all of the amazingness of the experience.
