I've been lost in a k-hole of black jeans only this winter since moving. I didn't realize it was a problem until coming home & my mom calling me out for it after stalking me via my blog. "Switch it up!" she said. Then I went to unpack the few things I brought with me & another realization was upon me: I only brought 3 pairs of black jeans. Well, shit. But you guys, there's high-waisted black jeans, ripped black jeans, cropped black jeans... they're all different! Or maybe I'm an addict trying to justify. IDGAF.

A little visit home for the first time since my move is exactly what I needed. Sometimes in life, you just need to take a step back & surround yourself with real, unconditional love for a bit of clarity. & cats. Cats are always necessary.

Don't focus on what looks like mountains of snow behind me & my bare legs. Focus instead on the fact that the snow is actually melting rapidly (hallelujah!) & it was "warm" enough to go sans black tights. My definition of warm albeit is a little skewed, but this is coming from a girl who despises summer heat. Just gimmie these middle ground temps that allow me layering options & leave the extremes behind, please?

It's funny because as we were walking down the street, Erica asked where I wanted to shoot my outfit & without thinking I pointed at this white wall to which she laughed. You can take the girl away from home, but not away from her white wall OOTD's.

Big boxy coats: trendy fashion or layering survival tool? For me, this fashion week was all about the outerwear. This outfit was such an easy, no-brainer, throw-on. Pile on a bunch of black shit & match my warm coat to my emerald satin shoes & out the door. Monochromatic match-y when thinking about what to wear during hangover life isn't an option.

I recently teamed up with blogger babes Lauren & Erica, bad ass photographer Scott Brasher, & Asos for a fun NYFW feature. We froze our very well-dressed little butts off strolling through Soho on a freezing day last week which was a precursor to the shit fashion week weather to follow. Which also had me questioning my sanity on the daily while layering up on multiple pairs of tights, over socks, with layered turtlenecks, etc. Proof that even the most seemingly together ladies are actually deep down psychos because no sane person was outside this last week. My hands are still cold just thinking about it. So I'm about to channel the poppy print on my dress & go to a warm mental head space for a bit. Send me your warmest vibes.

I literally went to sleep Thursday night saying "I can't wait to wear feathers tomorrow". & now I wish I could wear feathers everyday. Maybe I will.

Another fashion week is upon us. Another week of running around the city cursing my shoe choices after 14 hour days on my feet. Another week of drinking whiskey from the flask permanently affixed in my bag (secret's out..) in the back of cabs between shows. & another week of fashion, fun & friends. Cheers!
