What I see on the train lately

...That makes me sad I struck out on Christmas bonuses this year. I work in a fancy part of Manhattan now, and lately all of my train rides are nothing but visual envy.


Awkward layering

Dr. Martens

Old-world patterns

Textured tights

Shoe embroidery

Leather sleeves

Public transit in this city is hilarious. In one area, I might be sitting next to weathered old man listening to him talk to himself about Vietnam, and a few stops later, I'm blinded by a Prada bag logo and a sparkly holiday manicure. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to take actual photos...until then, I'm the girl weirdly staring at you and then pretending to look at my phone. Yes, I know there's no reception underground.

Bright December

blazer & triangle necklace: Forever 21

dress, cross ring & shoes: Urban Outfitters

clutch & watch: vintage 

arrow necklace: NYC Christmas market

I love the idea of bright colors in December. It's my middle finger to the idea of winter. I'm so accustomed to wearing dark neutrals year-round that I've been yearning for something to lift me out of my seasonal doldrums and add something festive to an otherwise everyday look.

 Speaking of everyday look- I got my hair colored today at the Charles Elias salon in Brooklyn, NY. If you live in the NYC area, I highly recommend miss Nicole! Merci mademoiselle!

Au revoir, bebe.
