Spring Leopard


Dear Nnenna,

I’m glad it’s finally (sort of)  getting a little bit (okay not really) springy here in New York. All I know is that I’ll be happy if it stops raining and breaks 50 degrees for more than three days straight. I’ve discovered that I definitely need to get some rain boots as waterproofing my usual boots isn’t cutting it anymore– they’re leaking around the seams and my toes are always wet. Of course, I also want to find semi-stylish ones, extra points if they can pass for regular streetwear. Let me know if you come across any?

I think it’s just been one of those long winters and I’m getting very tired of wearing the same clothing all the time. Especially the same shoes. And I love and want to wear my spring jackets, which haven’t gotten much use over the past few years with the seasons turning from winter to summer almost immediately.

    i’ve been complaining right and left about having to wear the same clothes over and over again. the winter in central Texas definitely wore out its welcome. you know i love me some leopard, right?! and good luck with finding the perfect boots!

    I completely thought your sunglasses were a hairbow at first. NEED MORE CAFFEINE. We just backslid into cooler weather as well–I’m trying to cherish what might be the last few wears of my thigh-highs for the year, but I also just want to get back into shorts already. At least your leopard/black/olive combination looks great!

    I agree with Lydia- the blog is looking good! I also do not have a pair of rainboots, so I usually just pull on my motorcycle boots or combat boots. I’m hoping it will just stop raining (although I’ll take rain over snow!).

    I love that necklace. The one you gave me is one of my favorite necklaces :)

      I’ve been wishing it would just stop raining every time it rains… for about three years now.

      I think it’s just time to think about rain boots. Of course, all of my current boots are leaking, which is a problem with the giant puddles we’ve had lately. If you don’t have leaky boots then I think you’re doing okay!

    Cute new blog design Alex! And yay for getting out the leopard maxi and some actual spring wear. I have a feeling this year will be no different though – we will jump from winter to summer as we always do. Case and point, see the snow this morning?
