Purple haze all in my brain. Lately, things don't seem the same. - Jimmy Hendrix


The seasons in New York are not even close to the ones in the books I read when I was a child. I came here years ago from "season-less" California expecting a Spring with birds chirping and bunnies hopping only to find 40 degree weather and snow still on the ground in April. Boo. I will always hate the fact that it's cold/rainy 80% of the year here, but even I can appreciate seeing leaves change. Doesn't really happen to the palms in Cali.

It was actually mild outside, so I could get away with a Cali Fall outfit: sweater, shorts, tights, boots. For this version, I was wearing my cozy purple oversized sweater from TopShop with F21 shorts, cross tights, and my JC France boots. Me being me, I put on a body chain (there's one just like it in the Literally, All Things Slim Giveaway gift bag. I will announce the winner on Monday!)to give it a little shape. Super Cali casual cool.

Now that Sandy has ripped through NY and it looks a mess outside, I can appreciate how dope the trees looked just a few days before. I don't often post my boring "I'm just hanging out" outfits, or match my lip to my sweater, but there are exceptions to everything, right? Now excuse me while I kiss the sky.
