A few OOTDs from Maui

2013-06-10_002

At the top of Haleakala. Another view. hoodie // top (old) // jeans // sunnies

It’s never easy to leave Hawaii, especially as each island I visit seems better than the last. I’ve just returned home to NYC from Maui where I spent several days hiking, sunning, surfing, lobstering, eating and working on a project. While there I snapped a few OOTD shots because the scenery was too beautiful not to.

OOTD 11.5.2012 & 11.6.2012 :: Twinset

2012-11-06_004

It’s my favorite time of the year — layering time! There’s something so great about breaking out tall boots and putting on two or three (or four) tops as you get ready for the day. Of course I wasn’t quite ready for the significant temperature drop Sandy brought about. My winter coat is out a full month early! I’m volunteering around affected areas of the city for the next three days but today was an off-day, so I wrapped myself up in lots of layers and headed out to run some errands.

OOTD 6.8.2012 & 6.13.2012 :: Lace and grace, two ways

The problem with being a personal shopper is that sometimes when you style an item for someone else, you end up selling yourself on those same ideas. Although I’ve been out of the professional styling game for about a year due to my hellacious work schedule, when former clients ping me for help I never say no. Loyalty and all that.

OOTD 5.15.2012 :: Blazin’

It’s time to celebrate the small victories in life, like hair conditioner. My hair is very fussy in NYC…likely due to a combination of taxi rides that make you wonder if you’re evading the police, water pressure that recalls that one massage that it took two weeks to recover from and the freelance client who keeps calling every 5 minutes asking when your project will be done, even though the answer isalwaysby end of day. No seriously. By end of day. Please stop asking.

OOTD 4.9.2012 :: Overpacked

Over the weekend I started packing for Hawaii (I leave on Saturday, hallelujah!). I am totally overpacked right now — par for the course. And I love every single thing in my suitcase. There’s nothing I want to take out. I guess I could take out a floppy hat (or two) and maybe I don’t need to bring so many maxi skirts but, well, you know. I don’t live near a beach anymore so any opportunity to wear beach clothing must be fully exploited. I am in full-on vacation mode and my brain has gone somewhat numb.

OOTD 9/5/2011 :: Day of Rest

Labor Day seems like a pretty good time for the return of OOTDs, no?

2011-08-21_006

It’s the unofficial end of summer and I plan to be as lazy as possible today before the back-breaking season starts up again. Considering how busy my life has been lately I’m a little scared at the thought of even more work than I already have. Hopefully it all pays off in the end.

This look is actually from a couple of weeks ago. I wandered around the Union Square Green Market looking for the perfect plants to fill my new planter. In reality it’s a salad serving bowl shaped like a pig that I picked up during a recent visit to Momentum in Boulder, CO. I of course promptly proclaimed the pig bowl a ‘he’ and named him Bob. The trip was a success! I found a nice mix of herbs (thyme) and succulents to fill Bob up. Here’s hoping the plants somehow stay alive in my apartment’s mostly indirect sunlight.

Enjoy a few more similarly posed shots below. I can’t help my blogger tropes.

OOTD 7.17.2011

Nothing but the Sunday best for shopping with my friends! Even with temperatures above 90 degrees I chose jeans over a skirt — quicker on and off in the fitting room.

The necklace was an impulse buy from J.Crew. One of the things I love about it is the chain with easy length options — choker, medium length or long chain. The brassy orange color of the piano key stones make for a light-catching stunner.
