Turns out that Juno, the “historic” storm that (sort of) hit New York a couple of nights ago was a bust, but the snow that did fall was beautiful. I love NY/Brooklyn covered in snow, everything is white, bright and shiny… even the piles of garbage. Of course, it will eventually melt and turn into gross muddy slush but in the meantime, my sister and I  frolicked in the snow and had an amazing snow day hanging out in BK. Thanks Liz for taking these photos in the cold! xo

To actually sit down and make something is one of those things that I always try to carve out time for but rarely get around to.  When I finally decide it’s time to stop working there’s always something else that needs to be done, something more “productive”. The other day when I just really wanted to chill out and paint, I realized that all the other stuff would get done eventually and it just felt really good to mix colors and listen to music for a few hours. I also just discovered that an amazing and huge art supply store exists in my neighborhood –  what better place to get inspired? There is definitely more to come.

Simple Delights

Spoils from the sale at Barney's, Alexander Wang Sweatpants and Helmut Lang top via youmademelikeyou.com

Small but sweet haul from the sale at Barneys – I tend to wait for the final markdowns to find the best deals (and find them I do) but the problem is that the sizes are very limited at that point and it takes some serious hunting to find awesome things that will actually fit. The Fed Ex man turns into Santa Claus when things from Barneys are on the way.

These crisp and glossy magazines I found under a stack of… well, other magazines. They’re October issues of Elle and Vogue Paris and while a few months have gone by, they’re still full of totally relevant and beautiful inspiration. There’s something about the way European magazines style their shoots that makes me want EVERY outfit/look.

This little group of Clinique Chubby Sticks that I got at The Bay (Toronto) for $25.  I had spent about an hour in Sephora with my mother that day trying every lip tint known to man (and, of course, each one at $25+). I think we must have gotten overwhelmed with choice and ended up walking out with nothing. When we saw this set for such an amazing price at we knew we had to have them.

Just a quick OOTD that I felt totally comfortable and warm in for running around the city. This coat is amazing because of the great shape and because It’s light as a feather and just feels like I wore the duvet. Of course, it goes without saying that my sneaks are also making me really happy – I’m thrilled the sidewalk is finally dry.

White Sneaker Love

After months and months of being obsessed with white sneakers, I finally got a pair of my favorite ones – the Adidas Stan Smith. I don’t really know why it took me so long to get them, I think in the back of my mind I was waiting for some kind of discount (even though a guy at the Adidas store here in NY laughed when I asked if Originals ever went on sale). I finally got them at Holt Renfrew in Toronto and guess what? It was boxing day (I know, don’t ask) and they were on sale! Anyway, I haven’t gotten to wear them very much because the snow came right after I got back to New York but I’ve got them on the brain and can’t wait for the sidewalk to dry.
