Central Park in the snow. Two bulky coats gave me about 45 minutes of warmth before the cold hit and necessitated finding a cafe to thaw out in.

J Brand sent me some jeans last week..as one commenter noted, I “don’t own any pants”. This isn’t entirely true, but honestly I just hate shopping for them since I barely every try clothes on in stores. I trust my eye for picking out my size for everything..except jeans. But these are a perfect second skin.
New York has been amazing and nonstop and I am dead tired right now…I got by in the above outfit by wearing two pairs of socks, two pairs of gloves, and three tops. The city is freezing! But so beautiful.

Saturday was stormy and the day was spent half-dressed..re-reading my favorite parts from Franny and Zooey, cleaning, and trying to make stir fry work with a really bare fridge. Peanut butter and raspberry jam and soymilk bare. Then I remembered that LF was having a sale so I dragged Colin along to La Jolla and made out with the only mid-height boots I’ve been okay with for a long time and a couple sweaters that required holding in the air four different ways before being able to make sense of them. We walked down to the beach to see how wild the ocean looked (very) and then ran back to the car in record time when the downpour began. Drove up to Mt. Soledad to see the cross on top of the city through the mist, tentatively evacuated vehicle safety to take a couple photos and break in the new boots properly in the mud, half froze to death in the sharp wind, and spotted seven bunnies scampering along on the grass. Felt very accomplished when I managed to photograph them in time.
Somewhere in between boring and perfect.
