Sleepy Eyes

Hello blog world!  I’m back on the East coast after a long weekend with my family in California.  I’ve always been under the impression that California was warmer than New York, but apparently I was mistaken.  Not only was it at least ten degrees cooler, there was no humidity (score!).  The dry, cool air was a welcome relief from the it’s-so-hot-you-can’t-breath heat in NYC this summer.  Wearing a jacket (jean from the Gap, natch) and a scarf felt great.  I’m just not made for humidity, people. 

Every single time one of my friends goes to LA they come back and say I want to move there.  What is it with that place?  I consider myself a New Yorker through and through, yet even I thought “wow I could live here.”  The worst part is, I have no idea why!  Is it the weather?  Sure, I love the dry air, but is that reason to head west?  Is it the palm trees?  I love a good palm tree.  Is it the proximity to celebrity?  I sat next to Eric Nies last week so that couldn’t be it.  What is it?? 

Here are a couple of pictures of my weekend…much more to come after I’m far more caffeinated.

Belt: vintage
