The Holiday Brunch

Vintage inspired brunch outfit

Dear Silvergirl,

I hope December’s treated you well so far. I was glad to have a short trip to the UK and returned to just in time to welcome the new month. I gave myself extra time for wandering London and picked up this skirt at ZARA during a free afternoon. The length’s a bit difficult, but I enjoy the shape and slight vintage flair. And it’ll always remind me of London.

On this particular day, Kim and I met for a relaxing brunch– probably the last one before holiday season overtakes us all. December is one of the best months in New York, but this year I’m not feeling very cheery or Christmasy. Maybe it’s missing Thanksgiving, or too much upheaval, or maybe too many sad stories in the news…

Or maybe it’s just that too many people are gone.

Normally I love gift-giving and party-going and holiday sparkle, but this year I am just tired.

Is it me, or has it been an unseasonably windy fall here in New York? I don’t remember heavy winds as typically being too much of a problem until January and February, although I also haven’t had my hair cut close to my shoulders in five years or so.

Stay warm and un-windblown.

I’ve been saved from either freezing or burning by Hanes legwear, which I’ve been wearing during this change of season. …

Night in Times Square

Dear Caitlin,

On Friday after the kensie jewelry preview, Nicole, Nnenna and I decided it would be a good idea to take some photos in Times Square. Or rather I decided Times Square was a totally perfect location and dragged them along with me. It was a little windy, but surprisingly uncrowded. It still weirds me out that there’s no traffic there any more. No more iconic photos of taxis stuck in traffic on Broadway.
