I cannot believe I am saying this, but the recent gloom is starting to grow on me. Perhaps it’s some kind of twisted San Francisco nostalgia…I hated the constant fog when I lived there, but now it doesn’t seem so bad. I also love that it is acceptable to pile on literally dozens of random pieces and head out in public. My New York “winter style” has certainly become an eclectic one!

Snapped these photos on one of my final afternoons as a Lower East Side dweller. Yep, that’s right, I’m officially a Brooklyn girl now! Moved into my new place on Saturday, and have been unpacking and organizing ever since. Not the most exciting way to spend a weekend, but I couldn’t be happier about this little apartment… and I have a brand new borough to explore!

    Hello. It’s layering season again! I know this is an old posting, but I was led to your blog through another site because I just love that vest(!), So much so that I feel like I HAVE to have it! Can you tell me who makes it? Your whole look here is really great. Hope you are enjoying being a Brooklynite. I too lived in San Fran (Kansas St., Potrero Hill) for about five years in the 90’s. Still miss it… especially the view from my apartment!

    Thanks so much for the sweet comment! Great to hear from a fellow former San Franciscan, I miss it lots too. :)

    The vest is by Citizens of Humanity…def one of my favorite layering pieces, hopefully they still have it available!

    Take care! xo

    Great look. I have to say, you wear this vest so well. On shopbop it looks kind of meh, but your pics made me think ‘wow, this looks amazing!’. Kudos!
