Back In New York

After a weekend getaway, it’s always nice to come back to the city I love. Coming back to freezing cold temps? Not so much.

After braving so many winters and threatening to break up with New York, I drop my flag and surrender. Layering is a fun game only when snow boots and turtlenecks aren’t the only option. The problem I see is that we have no choice but to dress weather appropriately. And that’s what sucks. The lack of power. And it’s only mid-January.

Of course, if you are dressing simply in all black and grey, you master the basics and fit right in to the landscape. Keeping it tonal, keeping it real. But by no means basic.

Therefore there is no reason to relocate.

You just need five pieces in your wardrobe to make it here. A simple uniform.

I still toy with leaving every year. Do I stay or do I go?

Those papayas!

The warm weather!

The carefree lifestyle!

For now, I just try to get a few mini breaks during the winter months. It makes such a big difference. Talk to me in March.
