You know what? Sometimes you go through a period in life where reality kicks your ass every day, and that’s that. “Life,” as my family likes to joke, “be’s that way sometimes”. As one of my friends says, we all go through times when we have to eat a sh*t sandwich. I’m certainly eating one, – it’s not the first time – but I think I’ve almost reached the crusts; and truth be told, I usually dispose of the crusts anyway. So to exit the metaphor, things have been tough but I’ve been smiling through it (exhibit a: my Insta and Snapchat), and I’m finally feeling positive about the future.
On to the outfit: We had a blessed “cold snap” a few weeks ago. I’ve come to love the rain, because it’s the only thing that makes the weather bearable. You can count on the rain to bring the temperature down a few necessary degrees. I’ve been doing a lot of physical work this summer (bike delivery!), so after spending most of my time in active wear it was a nice change of pace to have fun with my clothes. And wearing a cute outfit always perks me up! I liked this look for brunch with girlfriends and bopping around West Village and SoHo (an afternoon which included a delicious dark chocolate macaron). I forgot to get shots of the back of my sandals (they’re really cool), but you can see them here.
