After 5 days in Puerto Rico, my only wish upon returning to New York was for the sun to come out a bit more. Mother nature hasnâ€™t quite made up her mind and right now weâ€™re in that in-between weather that some people hate, but I actually kind of like.
My favorite thing about this time of year is being able to sleep without the heat or an a/c unit on. I found an incredible amount of joy in being able to move my bed back against my wall against the heater knowing I wonâ€™t need to use it again for the next 7 months and getting back an extra 12 inches of space in my room (sad, but true I was really excited.. just ask my roommate).
There have been a few rainy, dreary days but for the most part things are looking up. I never owned many â€œtransitionalâ€ jackets before because in Texas thereâ€™s really no such thing â€“ it lasts for a week, maybe two and then youâ€™re onto summer days and steamy nights. I picked up this trench coat last Fall when I was working with Jones New York on a project and I have to say, I wear it all of the time. Ann Taylor and LOFT have versions that are very similar and also affordable.
Iâ€™m embracing this trenchcoat weather with open arms (and open toed shoes). Iâ€™ve been wearing these Vince Camuto snakeskin heels more and more with the change in weather. Theyâ€™re one of those pairs of heels that are extraordinarily comfortable and make me forget that Iâ€™m actually wearing heels because of it. Theyâ€™re the kind of stop-you-in the-street heels that you can wear with jeans or a summer dress.
I’m catching up on a lot of things after my trip (most importantly work and sleep), so bear with me! Hope you all are having a great week :)
